Today, REAL Trends Inc., in conjunction with The Wall Street Journal, published the 13th annual The Thousand list of America’s top 1,000 real estate sales professionals and teams. Lucido Agency is recognized as the #1 team in the nation. (Lucido Agency is Lucido’s global division, which includes the Maryland team doing business as Bob Lucido Team as well as the expansion teams doing business as Lucido Agency and Lucido Global.)
“This is an exciting achievement for us, and it wouldn’t have been possible without all of our team members and our clients,” said Bob Lucido, President and CEO. “We’re honored and proud to be in business with you.”
REAL Trends The Thousand, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal, is an annual, national awards ranking sponsored by REAL Trends—the Trusted Source—and advertised in The Wall Street Journal. Designees are recognized as the top one-half of one percent of more than 1.3 million licensed real estate professionals nationwide. The Thousand is divided into four categories, each listing the top 250 designees: Individual Agent—Sales Volume; Individual Agent—Transaction Sides; Agent Team—Sales Volume and Agent Team—Transaction Sides.
In the 2018 Teams by Transaction Volume category, Lucido Agency ranked as #1, with $842,742,883.73. In the 2018 Teams by Transaction Sides category, Lucido Agency ranked as #2, with 2,318 transactions. In 2017, Lucido Agency ranked as #5 for Transaction Sides and #6 for Transaction Volume.
“The real estate sales professionals ranked in The Thousand have proven that they have the skills to grow their businesses year after year,” said Steve Murray, president of REAL Trends and publisher of The Thousand.
Bob Lucido has sold real estate for 42 years. He began selling homes at age 18 when he became one of the youngest people in Maryland to obtain a real estate license. He and his wife Tracy started Bob Lucido Team back in 2008 with just a few agents in a small office in Maryland. They were the #3 team with RE/MAX, until 2014 when they joined Keller Williams Realty, Inc. and became the #1 Keller Williams team in the world. In 2016, the Lucidos launched their expansion division, Lucido Agency, which currently has 200 real estate professionals in 11 locations in 8 states across the country.
When you break down the numbers, Lucido Agency sells 1 house every 4 hours, but their business isn’t just about transactions. It’s about the relationships they build and the clients they serve. The Lucido mission is to change lives by redefining real estate. “For us, it’s not just about numbers,” says Tracy Lucido, Vice President. “It’s about people. We’re playing a part in a process that changes their lives, so we work to provide an experience they won’t forget.”
Experience is a big word in the Lucido real estate life. The Lucido goal is to deliver the ultimate real estate experience by providing incredible value, exceptional service, and family-like culture.
