There’s a lot of talk and braggadocio in the real estate industry, but the numbers don’t lie. And the top 1,000 agents and teams were ranked today based on the data alone.

Real Trends, in conjunction with The Wall Street Journal, just released the 12th annual The Thousand list, which is divided into four categories: individual agent sales volume; individual agent transaction sides; team sales volume; and team transaction sides.

“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 in a statement. “The average U.S. real estate professional sold 8.6 homes in 2016. The average agent ranked in The Thousand sold 192 homes and the average team sold over 470 homes.

“These kinds of results show that those who commit to being full-time professionals can build meaningful businesses and succeed beyond expectations. Achieving this level of results is simply incredible.”

Here’s who made up the top of the list, comprised of agents from both independent and franchise brokerages:
