Carolinas’ #1 real estate company receives 11th Diamond Award and 23rd Crown of Excellence

The Allen Tate Companies took top honors at the 2023 Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) Annual Conference, held March 27-30, 2023, at the Wynn Las Vegas.

Allen Tate received the organization’s coveted Diamond Award, the highest member honor, which is based on a broad range of contributions and participation in network activities. Allen Tate has won the Diamond Award 11 times in the 18-year history of the award – more than any other LeadingRE broker.

Allen Tate received the Crown of Excellence Award for the 23rd time (in 24 years) for companies with more than 500 Realtors. The Crown is awarded to the member firm with the highest point total earned from performance ranking within their company-size category.

Allen Tate was also honored with the Top 5 Closing Award, and was named to the Million Dollar Club, recognizing member companies who send two or more outgoing closed referrals with a sales price of $1 million or greater and the Global Alliance Club, recognizing companies for one or more closed referrals across country borders.

“LeadingRE Conference Week is always a great opportunity to network with our colleagues and celebrate the power of independents,” said Pat Riley, president and CEO, Allen Tate Companies.

“Congratulations to all of the LeadingRE members who were honored last week. We are so fortunate to be in the company of such an accomplished group,” said Gary Scott, president, Allen Tate Realtors®.

“It was a terrific learning opportunity and of course, we were pleased to receive the Diamond and the Crown. Thank you to our Realtors, Relocation team members, clients and LeadingRE colleagues.
