The Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate topped the nation in real estate sales volume last year, according to a new analysis.
The Baltimore-area residential agency completed 1,772 transactions with a combined value of $765.5 million in 2016, according to the analysis by REAL Trends, working in partnership with The Wall Street Journal.
It was the third year the Creig Northrop Team ranked No. 1 nationwide, having achieved that distinction in 2010 and 2011. It also was the 11th time the agency ranked No. 1 in Maryland.
"Over the ten years REAL Trends and The Wall Street Journal have collaborated on ranking the top real estate agents and teams in America, no team has been more consistently in the top teams than the Creig Northrop Team," said Steve Murray, the president and owner of REAL Trends, in an announcement.
In a statement, Creig Northrop, president and CEO of Creig Northrop Team, said the No. 1 ranking reflects the service the team provides customers.
"They benefit from a powerful, top-ranked real estate team with wide-reaching resources to accomplish their success," he said.
