Watson Realty Ranks No. 17 in Nation

21 04 2007

RISMedia, residential real estate’s largest independent news and information service, has released its 19th Annual Power Broker Report & Survey which identified Watson Realty Corp. as ranking 17th in the nation based on closed transaction sides (16,503) and 27th in the nation based on sales volume ($4,192,355,352.) in 2006. They were the only real estate company listed within the Top 50 Brokerages from Florida.

“Like many of the power brokers listed in this month’s Power Broker Report & Survey, we have the gift of perspective here at RISMedia,” said RISMedia CEO and Publisher John Featherston. “Publishing this magazine for 27 years and ranking leading brokerage firms for 19 of those years has provided us with an important vantage point on the market. It allows us to comfortably say that, despite rampant talk of the demise of real estate in 2006, we are still in the midst of a vibrant real estate market, one that continues to present a wealth of opportunity.

“But, there’s a catch. You have to know where to look. These brokers confronted the reality of the new marketplace and turned it into their competitive advantage. While some firms acted on the false hope that the slowdown was just a temporary fluke, power brokers with the benefit of perspective took the necessary steps to ensure profitability.”

Watson Realty is pleased with the ranking, said Watson President Ed Forman.

“It is quite an honor and a powerful statement to be ranked as the top Florida real estate company as well as 17th in transactions and 27th in sales volume nationwide,” Forman said.
