Founder and CEO of the Path & Post team, Becky Babcock, was named one of America’s top real estate professionals by REAL Trends, a prestigious honor sponsored annually in conjunction with The Wall Street Journal.
Babcock had an impressive 228 sales in 2013, ranking her number 77 in the nation in units sold, and in the top one half of one percent of the more than 963,000 REALTORS® nationwide.
For Babcock, her Path & Post team’s core values of respect, unity and the golden rule are the foundation upon which her business thrives and grows. “Buying or selling a home is usually associated with a major life transition. Our focus on understanding that transition and treating the process as more than just a financial transaction helps us connect with our clients and guide them toward reaching their goals.”
Charlie Young, President and CEO of ERA Franchise Systems LLC said in a companywide memo “I would especially like to acknowledge Becky Babcock of ERA Sunrise Realty in Canton, Georgia as she improved her ranking by 100 spots versus last year.” Babcock ranked 177 last year and surged ahead to rank 77 this year.
“The best individual agents and teams—including Babcock’s award-winning efforts—were nothing short of phenomenal considering the recovering real estate market,” said Steve Murray, founder of Denver-based publishing and communications company REAL Trends, which compiled the list.
“Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what Babcock did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal. “Her efforts topped 99.99 percent of the REALTORS nationwide.”
