The Art Herling Team of Long & Foster Real Estate, based in both Blue Bell and Wayne, Pennsylvania, ranked 119th among real estate teams nationwide based on transaction sides in 2015 on REAL Trends’ annual The Thousand list. The team also earned the No. 151 spot on the list for top teams by sales volume for 2015.
Led by Art Herling, a real estate veteran with more than 35 years of experience, the team includes a number of top producing agents. Their heavy market presence in the Philadelphia suburbs has resulted in the team being ranked first among real estate groups in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties. Herling said he credits the team’s energy, top-notch customer service, efficient communication, forward-thinking marketing and insider knowledge to their success.
“We are honored to have once again been named to REAL Trends’ annual The Thousand list for both sales volume and transaction sides,” Herling said. “We strive to always provide all of our clients with best-in-class service. This ranking is a testament to our dedication to our buyers and sellers, as well as to the hard work of the entire Art Herling Team.”
In total, nine Long & Foster teams were ranked in the survey of the nation’s top 250 sales teams by closed volume and top 250 sales teams by transaction sides for 2015. Two individual sales agents were ranked in the top 250 associates nationwide based on the number of closed transactions.
“We congratulate Art Herling and his team on being named to this year’s REAL Trends’ The Thousand. This honor reflects the commitment to service, professionalism and expertise that Art and our entire team of real estate experts strive to provide,” said Gary Scott, president of Long & Foster Real Estate. “It’s because of agents like these that Long & Foster is the real estate leader in the Mid-Atlantic and the top privately owned real estate company in the nation and we’re committed to providing our sales associates with the industry-leading tools, technology and resources they need to grow their business.”
