(Savannah, Georgia | August 20, 2019) – The National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP) today unveiled the real estate industry’s only recognition of top producing LGBT and allied agents and teams. The NAGLREP Top LGBT+ Agent List recognizes 120 organization members.
Don Callahan who heads Team Callahan with Keller Williams Realty in Savannah, GA, was named to the list having produced 176.3 transaction sides.
“We are thrilled to honor Don and these incredible real estate professionals,” said Jeff Berger, Founder of NAGLREP. “We nearly doubled the number of agents and teams on the Top LGBT+ Agent List which is another example of the positive momentum the LGBT community has seen this year in the real estate industry. People like Don play such an important role in helping so many enjoy the benefits of homeownership.”
Berger pointed out that NAGLREP.com receives more than 75,000 unique visitors a month, mostly consisting of LGBT home buyers and sellers, and Callahan will have a NAGLREP Top LGBT+ Team Callahan icon added to their profile page on the site to assist in marketing efforts.
NAGLREP, now in its 12th year, has 37 chapters around the nation and has grown to more than 2,500 members as one of the largest LGBT trade groups in the U.S.
Team Callahan prides itself on being the BEST at what they do and allowing each member of the team to specialize in his or her role (think division of labor or the all star baseball team). Their MISSION is simple: Sell Houses, Have Fun, Give Back. Obviously they are in real estate so selling houses is a given. But it’s more that just a house, it’s a home for their clients and relationships with people. They like to have fun because life is too short not too. And well, Give Back because that’s just who they are. They have been very fortunate and feel it’s their responsibility to pay that forward to others.
“NAGLREP is playing an important role in showcasing the success of LGBT and allied agents across the United States.” said Kevin Thompson, Chief Marketing Officer of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “We are proud to sponsor the LGBT+ Agent List for the second year in a row because we support the commitment and dedication of these individuals who make real estate more inclusive every day. At its core, the real estate industry is about curating relationships and providing impeccable service; the professionals on this list excel at making those connections and delivering on that promise.”
All sales professionals and teams ranked in the NAGLREP Top LGBT+ Agent List appeared on the 2019 REAL Trends + Tom Ferry America’s Best Real Estate Professionals ratings and are ranked in the top 1 1/2 percent of the more than 1.4 million Realtors® nationwide.
