Nashville, TN - Crye-Leike, REALTORS has been ranked as the nation's 5th largest residential real estate brokerage according to REAL Trends, Inc.


Crye-Leike once again made the REAL Trends 500 list which is an annual research report that identifies the country's largest and most successful residential firms as ranked by closed transaction sides and separately by closed sales volume.


After several years of making this list, Crye-Leike remains ranked as the #5 real estate firm in the nation because of the number of properties it sold in 2013.


"We are proud to remain as one of the top real estate companies in the nation and the #1 real estate leader in the Mid-South," said Crye-Leike Cofounder and CEO Harold Crye. "This great honor is accredited to our dedicated agents and employees who strive to offer great service to all of our clients. Crye-Leike's success and continuous ranking as one of the top real estate brokerages in the nation can also be attributed to our award-winning website and several top-notch marketing and technology tools we offer our agents to better serve their clients."


In 2013, Crye-Leike attained a sales volume of $5.2 billion and celebrated a sales increase of $700 million over the $4.5 billion sales volume the company achieved in 2012.


"Crye-Leike's agents have been very productive in 2014 so far and our home sales are on track to meet the goal we set to achieve $5.5 billion in sales for this year," said Crye. "The positive market activity and sales increases Crye-Leike has seen in 2014 makes us optimistic that the company will hold on to our #5 national ranking or maybe rank even higher next year."
