The housing market is hot and staying hot for Arizona’s reigning (and repeating) top agent Joan Levinson. This month, the 2019 Best in Real Estate Awards (BREA) recognized the Paradise Valley luxury agent as both the Highest Volume Individual Agent (by dollars) in the Scottsdale/Paradise Valley Area and the Highest Volume Individual Agent Valleywide, which includes the entire Phoenix Metro area and all of its suburbs. These awards follow her 2018 win when she was named the number one luxury agent by sales volume in Arizona by Real Trends, as seen in the Wall Street Journal.
After her award-winning years of 2017 and 2018, the beginning of 2019 seems to be continuing her trend of consistent excellence. In the past 24 months alone, Ms. Levinson has sold more than $200 million in residential sales. This value includes today’s closing of estate transactions valued at $26 million, and a $15,650,000 sale in December of 2017 that was the most expensive home sold in Arizona history when it closed escrow. With such a strong start to this year, and other large deals already in escrow, she might be on her way to a three-time repeat next year.
“Joan is a true real estate professional, and the awards are well deserved” Said Mandy Neat, broker for Ms. Levinson. “She is continually advocating for her clients while making the ‘impossible’ happen. When Joan is involved, everything is possible.” According to Ms. Neat, “I doubt that there has ever been an individual REALTOR that did that net amount in such a short period of time. Teams maybe, but not an individual.”
With an average sales price of nearly $3,700,000, Ms. Levinson was able to secure her position as the top agent in the Phoenix area with a relatively low number of sales. “While I do specialize in luxury properties, I care more about the style and quality of a home than the price. My passion for exquisite one-of-a-kind homes leads me to know every detail, including the varied locations, views and finishings that inspire and attract people,” says Ms. Levinson. “I’m also blessed with the most amazing clients, many of whom return to me time and again to help with buying or selling a home.”
