The San Antonio Business Journal recently released its annual “Best in Residential Real Estate” award winners, and guess who made the list once again?

The Claus Team!


One of the City’s Best

The Claus Team agency came in at No. 13 on the Journal’s list of Best Residential Real Estate Teams in San Antonio – jumping up from the No. 14 ranking we held just one year ago.  This year’s appearance marks our 17th consecutive mention on the list.

That’s right: For nearly two decades, The Claus Team has consistently been named one of the absolute best real estate teams in the city.

And this year’s honor came as no surprise. We had some of our best production numbers ever, closing out a grand total of $30,748,158 in sales (you read it right – that’s more than 30 million!) in just 2015 alone. Our top individual sale came in at a whopping $855,000.

But we weren’t the only Keller Williams team that made a splash this year. A number of other local Keller Williams agents and teams also made the 2016 list, including many from Keller Williams Boerne, Keller Williams City View, Keller Williams Heritage and Keller Williams Legacy. The Erin Caraway Group, a Keller Williams agency as well, took the top spot on the Residential Real Estate Teams list.

We’re honored to be in such great company here at Keller Williams!


About the List

The San Antonio Business Journal releases its Best in Residential Real Estate list annually every spring. It honors the top 50 individual real estate agents, the top 25 luxury real estate agents, the top 5 luxury real estate teams, the top 5 farm and ranch agents and the top 25 residential real estate teams in the area. To view the full list of winners for 2016, head here.

This year, a total of 230 nominations were received, and while a number of factors go into who makes the list, final rankings are ultimately determined by the agent’s or agency’s total gross sales volume in the previous year.

Once winners were determined and announced, the top 25 individual agents, the top 25 luxury agents, the top 15 residential teams, the top 4 luxury teams and all the winning farm and ranch agents from this year were honored on April 14 at the Navarro Ballroom of the Westin Riverwalk hotel. Nearly 400 people turned out for the event. To get a glimpse of what the awards looked like, check out this slideshow.

In addition to its residential list, the Journal also releases an annual list of top commercial real estate agents, teams, deals and developments in San Antonio as well. Nominations for those awards closed April 24, and winners will be announced shortly. Stay tuned to Antonio for updates on those winners.
