Guinness World Record-Holding Agent Breaks $2.2 Billion Mark
Ben Caballero, the first Guinness World Record holder for home sales who was recently featured in a REAL Trends podcast, broke his world record for an individual real estate agent, selling 5,793 homes totaling $2,270,911,643 in a single year. That’s according to data from local MLSs of the Houston Association of REALTORS®, North Texas Real Estate Information Systems, San Antonio Board of REALTORS® and the Austin Board of REALTORS®.
Ranked as the No. 1 real estate agent for nearly a decade by REAL Trends for both total sales and number of transactions, Caballero also listed an additional 668 homes for brokerages owned by home builders for an additional sales volume of $228,992,475. His combined real estate sales for the year totaled $2.499 billion with 6,461 homes sold, all in the state of Texas.
Ben Caballero is the broker-owner of HomesUSA.com®, based in Addison, Texas. With his HomesUSA.com platform he manages MLS listings for more than 60 builders in Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio. Caballero is the number one ranked real estate agent on REAL Trends’ definitive “The Thousand” list, as publish in The Wall Street Journal for both number of home sales and total annual dollar volume.
Significantly, Ben Caballero, in addition to his individual record, is the only individual real estate agent ever to surpass the total production of highest ranked real estate teams on “The Thousand” list, as measured by total sales transactions (sides) and total transaction volume, as verified by REAL Trends. In 2017 Ben Caballero sold more than twice as many homes in both dollar volume and number of homes than those teams that appear on the most recent list. The REAL Trends list for 2018 sales production is expected to be publish this June.
To put Caballero’s 2018 numbers in perspective: Ben sold an average of more than 100 homes a week – nearly 16 homes a day, every single day of the year, and almost three home sales every business hour…more
