D Magazine Presents

Best Real Estate Agents

Every year, the D Magazine’s editorial research division surveys more than 20,000 D Magazine subscribers and recent homebuyers, along with members of the real estate, mortgage, and insurance communities to identify outstanding agents and professionals for public recognition. Winners are selected for excellence in customer service, integrity, market knowledge, and overall satisfaction. We vet nominees for licensing and disciplinary status, and announce the winners in the July 2022 issue of D Magazine.

The Process

STEP 1

+ NOMINATIONS

D Magazine emails nomination ballots to all real estate agents, mortgage professionals, and insurance agents in our database; and emails and mails ballots to more than 20,000 D Magazine subscribers and recent homebuyers in the area.

Best Residential Real Estate agents:

  • We ask recent homebuyers and subscribers to nominate up to two agents they have worked with who have demonstrated excellence.
  • We ask mortgage professionals and insurance agents to nominate up to three real estate agents they work with closely.
  • And we ask previous Best Residential Real Estate Agents to nominate up to three real estate agents (one inside their firms and two outside their firms)

STEP 2

+ VETTING PROCESS

Votes are tallied and sorted by D Magazine’s editorial staff. We put the data into an algorithm that places emphasis on feedback we received from our subscribers and recent homebuyers. We then screen each nominee with the Texas Real Estate Commission, Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending, and Texas Department of Insurance databases to make sure that licenses are up to date and that there has been no disciplinary action.

Ballots are not counted if they are:

  • Self-nominations
  • Duplicate ballots
  • Nominees outside of our geographic boundaries (view here)

We mail and email congratulation letters to the Best Residential Real Estate Agents and Top Residential Real Estate Producers.

We play fair:

  • Advertising dollars have zero impact on the creation of this list.
  • Best Residential Real Estate Agents are featured in our July issue and marked as a Best in our online directory whether they advertise or not. Top Producers are also designated in our online directory, regardless of their choice to advertise.
