Robert Rutley Honored on NAGLREP Third Annual Top LBGT+ Agent And Team Rankings

The National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP) has unveiled the third annual Top LBGT+ Agent List, the real estate industry’s only recognition of top producing LGBT and allied agents and teams. The NAGLREP Top LGBT+ Agent List recognizes 124 organization members this year – nearly doubling last year’s honoree total.

Robert Rutley, of The Blackstone Team with Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty, was named to the list having produced 86.5 transaction sides and $31.8M in total volume. This is Robert’s third consecutive year on the list.

“As a strong advocate of the LGBTQ+ community, Realogy is truly honored to recognize the tremendous achievements of our top LGBTQ+ agents,” says John Peyton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Realogy Franchise Group. “We applaud and celebrate every agent recognized on the NAGLREP Top LGBT+ Agent List.”

“NAGLREP is playing an important role in showcasing the success of LGBT and allied agents across the United States.” said Jeff Berger, founder of NAGLREP. “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. REAL Trends qualified all NAGLREP members who met 2018 individual agent production minimums of 50 sides or $20 million in sales volume. Teams, whose lead is a NAGLREP member, were recognized with at least 75 sides or $30 million in sales volume last year.

“REAL Trends is proud to recognize this preeminent group of top-producing agents and teams who are members of NAGLREP and qualified to be on the REAL Trends + Tom Ferry America’s Best Real Estate Professionals,” says Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends. “This esteemed group is in the top 1.5 percent of all 1.4 million Realtors® in the United States for the calendar year 2019 sales results. The residential real estate industry is one of the most intensely competitive businesses in the country. To be included in this list recognizes just how professional and productive these real estate agents are.”

NAGLREP, now in its 13th year, has grown dramatically with more than 2,800 members and 37 chapters around the nation and is noted as one of the largest LGBT+ trade groups in the U.S.

“Doubling the number of agents and teams on the Top LGBT+ Agent List is another example of the positive momentum the LGBT community has seen this year in the real estate industry,” said NAGLREP Founder Jeff Berger. “The industry continues to lead against anti-discrimination in housing including the outpouring of public support for the Equality Act, which passed in the House. And, while advocacy is a core mission of NAGLREP, we are also a business organization.
