RealTrends’ No. 1-ranked real estate agent, Ben Caballero of HomesUSA.com in Dallas, Texas, has been honored by Guinness World Records, the global authority on record-breaking achievements, for selling 5,801 homes last year.
Caballero broke his own industry-first Guinness World Record title for 3,556 verified home sales in a single year. He continues to hold the Guinness Worlds Record title for “Most annual home sales transactions through MLS by an individual sell side real estate agent – current.”
“Being honored by Guinness World Records for a second time is twice as nice,” said Ben Caballero. “Achieving the first Guinness World Records title was the honor of a lifetime. Breaking my own record is, well, indescribable,” he added.
Steve Murray, president of RealTrends, an industry-leading research and consulting group, notes that “Among the thousands of real estate professionals we have recognized over the years, no one has come close to breaking Ben’s achievements. Ben smashing his own phenomenal Guinness World Record is stunning.”
Caballero sold 2,245 more homes for his second Guinness World Record title achievement. That’s a remarkable 67 percent more homes sold than he recorded with his first title. In 2015, Ben became the first real estate agent to exceed $1 billion in total home sales. He repeated this streak until last year, when he raised it to a higher level, becoming the first real estate agent to exceed $2 billion in total home sales.
News reports have called Caballero’s home sales feats “truly amazing.” Last year he listed and sold more homes through MLSs than the top two ranked teams of agents combined, according to the latest RealTrends + Tom Ferry “The Thousand” list. He not only sold more than three times the sales volume of the No. 2-ranked individual agent, but he also sold more homes than the next seven top-ranked agents combined.
Caballero’s new record translates into selling an average of more than 100 homes a week, or nearly 16 home sales a day, every single day of the year. Caballero averaged almost three home sales every business hour.
