Why Apply for Platinum Top 50 Recognition?
Not all real estate agents are created equal and buyers and sellers deserve to be recognized by the
best. The PT50 annual recognition program is uniquely designed to bring together agents that are
industry and community leaders with diverse backgrounds, interests, experiences, and areas of
expertise. In addition, they each have a proven track record for providing exceptional service and
getting results for their clients.
Agents selected for recognition through PT50 gain a host of membership benefits designed to support
PT50 recognized agents will receive:
It is free to apply and all licensed, active agents in good standing are encouraged to apply. There is no
cost to the agent if selected for recognition. Agents must apply to the PT50 organization in the city
where their primary association membership is held.
PT50 Recognition Program Scoring Criteria
PT50 has a unique desire to recognize real estate agents, not only for their professional accomplishments, but for their dedication to the enrichment of their community, commitment to continuing education and their ongoing leadership in real estate industry trade organizations at the local, regional and national level.
Agents selected for recognition apply annually between August 1 and August 31.
60% Sales (Volume Closed + Units Closed)
An agent’s sales performance is a key indicator of their success. Production used to qualify for
recognition is for transactions closed between September 1 of the previous year and August
31 of the current application year and account for 60% of an agent’s overall score.
25% Community Involvement
Being involved in philanthropic endeavors ultimately creates a more unified and desirable city
to live and work in. It also enhances the professional image of those in the real estate industry.
It is Platinum Top 50’s belief that community-minded, civically-engaged agents elevate the
image of professionals in our industry. Community involvement accounts for 25% of an
agent’s overall score and are awarded points for their volunteer hours and financial
contributions as as follows:
We believe continuing education and the increased knowledge that comes from gaining additional
certifications throughout an agent’s career ultimately benefits the clients they represent.
Designations account for 7.5% of the total score. Agents with recognized designations receive one
point per recognized designation.
7.5% Industry Participation
Industry participation is defined as involvement in recognized professional associations or membership-based councils, societies or organizations that are designed to bring together individuals in real estate and advance the real estate industry as a whole. This includes attendance at PT50 events. Industry Involvement is 7.5% of an agent’s total score.

"I have been a Platinum Top 50 participant since its inception in Austin in 2011. Over the last 9 years, have embraced how it has grown in scope. We can all be very proud of this group; the REALTORS, the sponsors, the non-profit work, educational opportunities, and the CONNECTIONS that have enhanced the professionalism of our field."

"Platinum Top 50 has been instrumental to me in fostering relationships with other agents because they provide fun events throughout the year that allow us to be around like-minded agents that we can get to know, grow with, and learn from."

"Platinum Top 50 is a way for me to give my clients an edge in a highly-competitive market. Whether I’m helping someone buy or sell, the relationships I’ve built through the PT50 network have helped make that first conversation a little easier, a little friendlier, and in some cases, it helps the other agent tell their client with confidence that the other party is well-represented."
Danny Charbel Keller Williams City View
"PT50 partner relationships are an integral part of my business. The partners I have joined forces with allow me to present a team of professionals to my clients that will take them down the road of contract to close with communication, professionalism, and courtesy. Between title, home inspectors, home warranty and beyond, PT50 keeps me connected to industry partners with the highest standards to assure satisfactory results. "
Mindy Stang JP & Associates, REALTORS
"Being a part of this organization has done so much for my career. The recognition as a top producing agent is actually the least beneficial. I have made some of the strongest friendships of my entire life through PT50."
Ryan Rodenbeck Spyglass Realty
"Knowing that PT50 also recognizes and supports the impact we make through community involvement, sets agents in the PT50 network apart from other REALTORS. So many in our profession have tunnel vision of sales and numbers, that they miss out on personal growth opportunities and business development afforded by community service."
