For the 4th year in a row, Tony Kawaguchi and his Aloha Tony team have received the honors of being on this prestigious list of top producing agents in the state of Hawaii. The data is compiled from the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) and there are a few criteria that are considered from this.
1. Only MLS transactions in Hawaii
2. Only residential sales are counted. (no vacant land or commercial)
3. No new home sales are counted. (which is a shame since Realtor's often find homes in new construction developments)
4. Primary listing agents receive full credit, co-listing agents do not receive credit.
5. Both buyers agent and sellers agent are credited for the full sales price amount.
6. If the Realtor represents both seller and buyer, the Realtor is credited with twice the selling price.
Along with the top 100 in total sales, there are 4 other categories to celebrate the success of real estate agents statewide. Many of these same agents also made the top 100 Realtors list as well.
1. Most transactions
2. Vacant land
3. Top Companies
4. Honorable mention- This is given to the agents who ranked 101-125 in the value of sales, based on the same sales criteria as the top 100 Realtors.
The highest priced home for this sales year was $17.5 million dollars, and was in the Hualalai Resort area on the big Island. The highest price home sold on Oahu was $17 million and was located just east of the Waialae golf course, on the ocean (of course!). The highest price home on Kauai was sold for $12.85 million. The selling price of this same house in 1998 was $1.2 million. That's an increase in price of approximately $728,125 per year! Incredible!
As a part of the Aloha Tony team, we are proud to say that Tony Kawaguchi (and team) made it on the Top 100 Realtors list as well as the Realtors with the most transactions list. Tony and his team are climbing in numbers each year, while still maintaining the care and attention that we strive for in all of our relationships with our clients.
