Staff Report

Wednesday, June 29th, 2022

Shirley Gary, owner and CEO of Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta and Engel & Völkers Atlanta North Fulton, has been named Georgia’s Number One Individual Agent for sales volume and is the top performer of three Georgia Realtors in the category of Transaction Sides in the 2022 REAL Trends + Tom Ferry The Thousand List of the top 1,000 real estate sales professionals in the U.S.  In addition to her statewide honors, Gary was ranked Number 11 Nationwide for both volume and transactions closed nationwide.  The Thousand List is divided into four categories, with each listing the top 250 Realtors®:

Individual Agent – Sales Volume

Individual Agent – Transaction Sides (either the buying or selling agent)

Agent Team – Sales Volume

Agent Team – Transaction Sides

“This annual list ranks the top .065 percent of more than 1.6 million licensed Realtors® across the country.  Our team is thrilled, but not surprised, that Shirley wins top honors year after year,” said Kelly Stephens, managing broker of Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta and Engel & Völkers Atlanta North Fulton. “It’s important to point out that the listings alone don’t tell the whole story.  Shirley won top honors in the state for closing 574.4 transactions.  The agent named in second place closed 217.5 transactions during the same timeframe, so that is a tremendous difference.  Also, Shirley’s top position in the state for sales volume is for generating over $257 million in 2021.  That’s more than twice the volume as 2020, when she also was named Number One in Georgia.  In addition, Shirley has just been named one of the Top 10 Real Estate Advisors across the entire Engel & Völkers system worldwide.”

“I am honored and thankful to be named again to The Thousand List and proud that my success also trickles down to my team at Engel & Völkers Buckhead Atlanta and Engel & Völkers Atlanta North Fulton,” said Gary. “Our core values of competency, exclusivity, and passion are what we strive for each day.”
