- Team Professionals – Transaction Sides
According to the Top Thousand Top Real Estate Professionals, Keppler had transaction sides totaling 280, ranking him 48th in the nation and his team had 419 transaction sides ranking them 48th in the nation as well.
“The best individual agents and teams – including Keppler’s award-winning efforts – were nothing short of phenomenal considering the recovering real estate market,” said Steve Murray, founder of Denver-based publishing and communications company REAL Trends, which compiled the list.
“Becoming a member of such an elite group as the Top Thousand Real Estate Professionals is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what Keppler did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal. “His efforts topped 99.99 percent of the more than 963,000 REALTORS nationwide.”
“I am absolutely thrilled to be named to the Top Thousand,” said Keppler, who serves clients primarily in Greater Cincinnati. “Even with the market’s challenges, it’s incredibly gratifying to help clients find their dream homes as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible.”
