RISMEDIA, October 26, 2009—As a 2009 recipient of Quality Service Certification Inc.’s “Qe Award” for outstanding customer service, Prudential Palms Realty continues to prove and reinforce its commitment to both consumers and its growing team of sales associates.
Serving the greater Sarasota, Florida area with seven offices and more than 250 sales associates, Prudential Palms has stepped up its mission of serving customers by encouraging its leading agents to seek membership in RISMedia’s Top 5 in Real Estate Network®, North America’s fastest growing network of leading real estate professionals providing leading real estate information to consumers. Prudential Palms is currently home to seven sales associates who have been accepted as members of Top 5.
As its name suggests, the Top 5 in Real Estate Network® is exclusively reserved for only the most experienced, top producing real estate practitioners; membership is limited geographically based on local area population.
“Through our support of Top 5, and as proven by our Qe Award, Prudential Palms is more committed than ever before to providing outstanding service to the public as well as our agents,” said Helen Sosso, broker/owner of Prudential Palms. “I believe what really separates real estate companies is the caliber of the associates and the customer service they offer.”
A 32-year real estate veteran, Sosso is also broker/owner of sister company Prudential Preferred Realty, with 17 offices and more than 600 agents serving the Pittsburgh area. Prudential Preferred is home to 13 Members of the Top 5 in Real Estate Network®.
As part of Sosso’s commitment to her sales associates and consumers, her companies offer a full range of real estate services, including: title and insurance services; a mortgage company; a full-service relocation department; a new homes division; marketing services; and a real estate school for agents.
“We are committed to moving our sales associates into the new wave of real estate,” Sosso explained, adding that Top 5 serves as an important vehicle for accomplishing this goal.
As required by RISMedia, which has provided the real estate industry with leading-edge news for nearly 30 years via RISMedia.com and Real Estate magazine, each member of the Top 5 in Real Estate Network® must first meet a stringent set of criteria, based upon performance, experience and results, as well as educational and professional skills and service to the consumer. Members must also provide consumers with timely and relevant real estate content, as provided by RISMedia, the leader in real estate information systems.
“The Top 5 in Real Estate Network® is designed to meet the critical need for consumer education,” said Top 5 President and Co-founder Allan Dalton. “Top 5 Members will disseminate timely and relevant information to consumers through the Top 5 Real Estate Social Networking System, through the Top 5 Resource Center that will reside on members’ websites, through print materials, webinars, and much, much more.”
Moreover, Top 5 will also help consumers identify the most professional real estate agents, based upon objective performance standards.
“Consumers today have an inadequate level of understanding about the process, opportunities and risks facing them in real estate transactions, and they badly need a New Deal in this area,” explained RISMedia President and CEO, and Top 5 Co-founder, John Featherston. “The Top 5 in Real Estate Network® will answer this call.”
