Northrop Realty named No. 1 specialty brokerage nationally

Northrop Realty, A Long & Foster Company, was named the No. 1 specialty brokerage in the nation for team-owned brokerages in a REAL Trends report. “The Thousand” ranking report compiles the top residential real estate professionals and teams across the United States as measured by transaction sides and sales volume in 2019.

“Ranking No. 1 in the nation based on transaction volume is an incredible feat for our new billion-dollar brokerage,” said Creig Northrop, founder and CEO of Northrop Realty. “The recognition follows our rapid growth throughout the region, which we’re continuing to do, as we provide the absolute best service to home buyers and sellers in the mid-Atlantic.”

“The Thousand” ranking report is sponsored by REAL Trends and Tom Ferry International and advertised in The Wall Street Journal. REAL Trends, a residential real estate consulting and communications company, releases industry rankings annually, identifying the country’s largest and most successful agents and firms according to closed transaction sides and sales volume.

Northrop Realty opened an office in West Ocean City, Maryland, in May, the brokerage’s 12th location and latest in a series of new office openings throughout the region. Northrop Realty has offices in Fenwick Island, Delaware, as well as Annapolis, Clarksville, Columbia, Ellicott City, Fallston, Frederick, Silver Spring, Sykesville and Timonium, Maryland.

Formerly the Creig Northrop Team of Long & Foster Real Estate, Northrop Realty became a full-service brokerage within the Long & Foster Real Estate family of companies in 2018. The transition from real estate team to brokerage allows Northrop Realty to grow its service areas.

  1. What is even more important to point out, 2 of the 10 top brokers in the U.S. is located in our county. (you pointed that out).

    Our area (Balto/Wash) real estate continues to be in demand. I am sure the safety net is the amount of people who work directly or indirectly for the federal gov’t. If the federal gov’t starts to cut back starting next year because of the huge deficit, how will that effect real estate turnover.

    I have heard from different real estate brokers, many houses are selling within days of hitting the market because of the low interest rates. I guess people are confident they will continue to have a job in the immediate future.
