Re/Max the leading Real Estate Company in the USA recently released their top Realtor awards. Realtors are ranked based on production and income earned every year. The Realtors at the top have not only teams but proven systems for both buying and selling real estate. The Re/Max brand is a strong brand that has gained traction from its inception in the late 1970s. There are some newcomers to the elite in the industry but many of the Top Realtors remain at the top of their industry and field.

    James & The Nellis Group were honored with the title of #9 in the USA and #2 in the state of Virginia. Here is a recent photo of our team with the awards:
