Celebrating Excellence: PSA Agents & Teams are Tops in Delaware

We are thrilled to announce that eight of our finest agents and teams have made the prestigious RealTrends Verified rankings! This incredible achievement places them among the top 1.5% of approximately 1.5 million real estate professionals nationwide.

What Makes This So Special?

The RealTrends Verified rankings are the gold standard in real estate, measuring closed transaction sides and closed volume for 2023. The year’s tight housing market resulted in fewer agents and teams qualifying compared to the previous two, making it no small feat to earn the recognition as top performers.

Our Stars Shine Bright

Our 2024 honorees have proven their mettle time and again, consistently delivering outstanding results for their clients and businesses. Their innovation and dedication set them apart in the industry, and we couldn’t be prouder to have them on our team.

Insights from Our Top Agents & Teams

We asked our RealTrends Verified designees what delivering exceptional service to their clients means to them and how they navigate the challenges of the real estate market. Here’s what they shared about their experiences and the inspirations behind their achievements:

Victoria Dickinson of Victoria Dickinson & Associates, beautifully articulates the importance of personal connections: “In today’s tech-driven world, real estate thrives on personalized interactions, with exceptional customer service being the key to success. While technology aids in efficient information gathering, prioritizing long-term partnerships with buyers and sellers remains paramount.

John Zacharias of PSA Ocean View, shares his passion: “I live vicariously through my clients when I help them buy and sell their beach house. The excitement and joy is contagious and it drives my desire to succeed in my career if not for me then for my clients!”

Matt Brittingham, leader of the Delaware Shore Properties team, highlights the human element in real estate: “Real estate and real estate agents are unique in the sense that all the new technologies help assist with the process; however, the personal/human engagement far supersedes anything else. Without personal contact, the industry would fail to exist.

Kate Bianchino of PSA Greenville, underscores the importance of professional integrity: “Strong negotiating skills, attention to detail, up-to-date market knowledge should always stand beside integrity, ethics and transparency. I believe that thoughtfulness, honesty and consideration need never be compromised in professional dealings.”

Steve Crifasi, a veteran in the industry, reflects on the timeless fundamentals: “Over my 50 years of real estate there have been many, many changes in technology, marketing, social media, etc., but the basics never change. I take pride in giving exceptional personal service to my clients in order to build confidence & trust. That quality never changes no matter what market we are in!”

Chris Patterson, another agent with incredible tenure, emphasizes the rewarding nature of the profession: “Having worked at Patterson-Schwartz for 47 years as an agent, I have experienced all types of market conditions. The support of and from within the company has been invaluable. It has been extremely gratifying helping people with one of their most valued possessions—their home.”

AnnMarie Germano of the AnnMarie Germano Group, expresses her gratitude and
commitment: “We are so honored to be recognized this year and grateful for our clients, the support of Patterson-Schwartz, and
fellow co-broke agents. We look forward to growing and servicing the needs of our buyers and sellers with the highest attention to value.”

Team Landon, a team out of PSA Newark, highlights their commitment to client satisfaction: “Because we strive to exceed expectations, the majority of our business comes from repeat clients and referrals. We are grateful and appreciative that our continued commitment drives our success from past to future generations.”
