How to Choose a Real Estate Agent


Sandy Raines and Ron Cadieux, of HER Realtors, New Albany, OH, Named Members of North American “Top 5 in Real Estate Network®”

Local Realtors Earn Most Prestigious of all Industry Achievements

Reaching the pinnacle of their profession nationally, Sandy Raines and Ron Cadieux of HER Realtors were today accepted as Members of the Top 5 in Real Estate Network®, the most prestigious of all industry achievements.

More than just a sales-driven recognition, the Top 5 in Real Estate Network meets a need that heretofore has never been addressed – helping consumers identify the most professional real estate agents in North America. To qualify, each member must first meet a stringent set of criteria, based upon performance, as well as educational and professional skills and service to the consumer.

The Top 5 Network is carefully selected and managed by RISMedia, which has provided the real estate industry with objective, unbiased news for nearly 30 years, and Pinnacle Quest Consulting, RISMedia’s Top 5 management partner.

Verl Workman, the President of Top 5, congratulated Sandy Raines and Ron Cadieux for earning this top status within the industry. “Sandy and Ron have reached the very highest level of North America’s residential real estate industry. Not only are their professional accomplishments extraordinary, they have long been a true champion for homebuyers and sellers in their area. It is a pleasure to welcome Sandy and Ron into this elite group of industry leaders.”

According to John Featherston, Chairman of RISMedia, the significance of Top 5 in Real Estate is that consumers deserve full transparency regarding all matters related to the real estate transaction, which often begins with the need to select a highly competent, experienced and results-oriented real estate professional. Top 5 in Real Estate has been established to both empower consumers with leading real estate content through Top 5 members, as well as to ensure that consumers are made fully aware that there is a material difference between average and exceptional real estate professionals.
