“I am obviously pleased and honored to be ranked on this ranking of the country’s top residential real estate agents,” said Wendy Papasan. “It represents the time and effort that we put into each customer that we serve and how much work it takes to build a successful real estate career. The level of sales it takes to qualify makes it a truly special recognition.”
