San Francisco, CA – REAL Trends, Inc, along with the Wall Street Journal, recently published its seventh annual list of America’s top 1000 real estate sales professionals. Zephyr agent Tim Gullicksen is ranked #225 in the entire nation. Gullicksen, Zephyr’s Top Producer in 2012, garnered over $54 million in sales last year.
Gullicksen has been a top-producing agent since his first year in the business, and takes great pride in managing every aspect of each transaction. After graduating from high school in the south bay, Tim earned a B.A. in Political Science and History from UC Berkeley. He went on to earn his teaching credential from JFK University in Orinda, and taught kindergarten in the San Jose Unified School District. He brings an educational approach to real estate developed from that background, and sees himself as a facilitator of property transactions.
“I believe real estate is about relationships, and I have developed many rewarding relationships both as a Realtor and local resident,” commented Gullicksen. “I am indeed fortunate to be part of such a dynamic client group, a terrific company and an amazing community. It’s been a great year, and I am excited to see the Bay Area market re-emerging.”
Zephyr Real Estate recently placed in the Top 500 Largest Brokers in the United States for 2012, and became part of the prestigious Billionaire’s Club.
“Tim has proved himself over and over again to be more than just an agent. He is a trusted consultant and confidant to his clients, colleagues and service providers,” stated Matthew Borland, Sales Manager/Partner of Zephyr’s Pacific Heights office. “We are privileged to have him on the Zephyr team.”
