“I am pleased and honored to celebrate these Weichert, Realtors sales associates, who ranked Jacelyn Bottias some of the top residential real estate agents in New Jersey,” said Jacelyn Botti, head of residential sales for Weichert, Realtors. “It represents the time and effort that they put into each client they serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate career. The level of sales it takes to qualify makes it a truly special recognition for them.”


To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2015. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume.


“The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed fewer than eight transactions in 2015 and had less than $1.5 million in sales,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends. “To say that these agents are exceptional sales professionals is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.”
