SALT LAKE CITY & LAS VEGAS - March 20, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Century 21 Everest Realty Group today announced that it has achieved the distinction of becoming the nation's top-ranked Century 21 single residential office, based on gross commission income earned by its agents, and finished third nationally for units sold among Century 21 residential offices.
The Utah brokerage was honored for its performance at the Century 21 Global Conference, held this week in Las Vegas, Nevada.
"It is an inspiration every day to work with the Everest Realty Group team, which performs miracles almost on a daily basis," said George Q. Morris, CEO of Century 21 Everest Realty Group. "This group is made up of tenacious, consummate professionals able to attract high-quality clients, and driven by a true passion for understanding and meeting the diverse needs of Utah homebuyers. These are serious full-time professionals at the top of their profession, not casual part-timers."
In garnering the top spot among the nation's Century 21 offices, Everest Group's 250-plus agents achieved total sales volume of $393,504,669 from 2,083 units sold, both of which ranked first among single Utah residential real estate offices—across all national brands and independent offices, according to the Wasatch Front Multiple Listing Service (WFRMLS) and Real Data Strategies (RDS).
In a highly competitive marketplace, Everest Realty Group far outpaced all competitors in listings sold, maximizing the likelihood of a successful sale for homeowners listing with Everest. According to WFRMLS data, in 2013 Everest Realty Group sold 877 single-family residences from its listing inventory, eclipsing its nearest competitor by more than 280 homes.
The Everest Realty Group achieved these milestones after only four years in existence, surpassing perennial top-performing Century 21 offices in such real estate boom markets as Orange and San Diego Counties in California; Miami-Dade and Orange Counties in Florida; Dallas and Harris Counties in Texas; Loudoun and Fairfax Counties in Virginia; the District of Columbia and surrounding communities.
"The fact that Century 21 Everest Realty Group was able to grow into a leader in the market in such a short period of time is a testament to the leadership of brokers George Morris, John Ciet and Rob Ockey," said Rick Davidson, president and CEO of Century 21 Real Estate LLC. "The commitment they exhibit every day to the real estate consumers in Salt Lake, Midvale and throughout Utah is reflective of the more than 103,000 SMARTER. BOLDER. FASTER.® C21® affiliated agents around the world."
Everest Realty Group is currently expanding its footprint along Utah's dynamic Wasatch Front and throughout the state—in areas stretching from Davis County in the north to Washington County, a growth area in the state's southwest corner.

"As we expand our influence in neighborhoods throughout the state, our commitment to attracting, keeping and developing the best talent in the industry to serve the needs of Utah homebuyers and sellers will remain constant," said Morris. "Our message remains, if you are committed to being the best, we invite you to join the best real estate team. It will be an extraordinary shared adventure."
