Hawaii Business Top 100 Realtors 2014

Hawaii Business magazine is honored to present this ranking and its companion lists for the eighth year in a row. These are the only objective rankings of the state’s top real estate professionals.

June, 2014

We rank individual Realtors and real estate companies by the dollar value of total sales during 2013 and by the number of transactions. One Realtor led both lists; turn the page to find out who.


How We Compiled the Lists

Starting in February 2014, our research partner, PKF Pacific Hawaii LLP, analyzed the Multiple Listing Service data collected from the Honolulu Board of Realtors, Realtors Association of Maui and Hawaii Information Service, which compiles data for the Kauai Board of Realtors and Hawaii Island Realtors.*

For this list, we only include 2013 transactions that meet the following criteria:

  • Only MLS transactions in Hawaii are counted;
  • Only residential sales are counted; land-only and multifamily sales are not;
  • New property sales are not included;
  • No original or new development sales are counted;
  • Primary listors receive full credit for the transaction; co-listors do not receive credit;
  • Each side in a transaction – both the seller’s agent and the buyer’s agent – is credited with the full selling price of a home;
  • If you represent both buyer and seller, you are credited with twice the selling price.

Once the data are analyzed, Hawaii Business sends emails to the top 125 Realtors and asks them to verify their total sales. At this time, changes to the MLS – such as the primary listing agent – can be made via HBR, RAM or HIS. However, the transaction can only be counted if our researchers can independently verify this information, and if the transaction fits our criteria. Once final changes have been approved, PKF and Hawaii Business researchers confirm the list.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are land sales included? Vacant land sales are not included for the main Top 100 Realtors list, but Realtors who sell a lot of vacant land appear in separate lists. See those lists on page 52.

Why do you not include co-listors? Primary listors receive full credit because it is enforceable and manageable. Calculating totals from multiple listors and dividing sales credits would be unwieldy, if not impossible.

Anything unusual happen this year? Yes and several Realtors were affected. A piece of land that was vacant except for a tear-down house was purchased, then a house was built and sold for the first time in 2013. It was considered a new development in the MLS, though some people argued that it was a resale. Hawaii Business and its researchers concluded that since it was tagged a “New Development” in MLS by the Honolulu Board of Realtors, that would be the final decision. New developments are excluded from the Top 100 Realtors calculations.

Your Feedback

If you have any questions or comments, please email to feedback@hawaiibusiness.com. We do listen to your suggestions. For instance, starting this year, we also recognize the Top Realtors by transactions. Many Realtors appear on both the sales and transactions lists, but some appear just on the transactions list. By publishing this list, we wanted to recognize those Realtors who close a lot of sales of less-expensive properties.

*(Editor’s Note: The print version and an earlier online version of this story did not name the Kauai Board of Realtors and Hawaii Island Realtors, but we have named them here for clarity.)

Why This List Ends at No. 95

The transactions were credited the same as our Top 100 Realtors by Sales list. The primary listor received credit for one transaction when representing the buyer, and one transaction when representing the seller. There are multiple tied rankings on this list, including an 11-way tie for No. 95. Because of this, the list contains 105 Realtors.


Top Vacant Land Realtors

Top Vacant Land Realtors rank agents by sales of land zoned for residential only. Land zoned for agriculture was not included. Hawaii Business understands that properties zoned for agriculture are often sold for “gentleman farming” and the buyers have no plans for commercial farming use, but since we cannot determine which will be used for farming and which will be used for residential, we do not include these properties. We also realize that criteria for vacant land designation vary from county to county, but we cannot account for such variations.

Top 25 Real Estate Companies by Total Sales

For this list, we used the same methodology as we did for the Top 100 Realtors. Because of the sheer volume of transactions (more than 25,000), we did not ask for verification from the companies.

To complete our total, we combined the total sales and total transactions of companies and their separate offices. For example, Coldwell Banker Island Properties includes its four offices: Wailea Gateway Plaza, Shops at Wailea, Paia and West Maui.
