Coldwell Banker Resort Realty has announced their Five Star Real Estate Agents: Skip Faust, Henry Castelline, John Bohne, Kathy Douglass, Diane Stacy, Trina Joyner and Rick Bennett.
Five Star Professional has once again partnered with Delaware Today to determine the real estate agents in the Delaware area who provide exceptional service and overall satisfaction. The Five Star Professional research team contacted clients, peers and industry experts and asked if they had experience working with a real estate agent.
To qualify and be accepted for this award, candidates must score highly enough and meet all the conducted consumer research client satisfaction surveys criteria and regulatory checks, be actively engaged in the real estate industry for a minimum of three years, verify an acceptable number of one-year and three-year sales transactions and production, and be free of any real estate violations. The resulting list of Five Star Real Estate Agents comprised an elite group, representing less than seven percent of 4,200 licensed agents in the Delaware area. All award winners will be announced in a special section in the November issue of Delaware Today, and on fivestarprofessional.com.
