Real estate agent breaks his own "Most annual home sales" title by selling 6,438 homes
DALLAS, May 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ben Caballero, a two-time Guinness World Record title holder and the No. 1-ranked real estate agent in the U.S. since 2013 by RealTrends, has been recognized for the third time by Guinness World Records, the "ultimate authority on record-breaking achievement."
Caballero, a new home sales expert and owner of HomesUSA.com, works directly with 60-plus builders in Houston, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Austin, and San Antonio. He individually sold 6,438 homes worth more than $2.46 billion in 2020. He now officially holds the Guinness Worlds Record title for "Most annual home sales transactions through MLS by an individual sell side real estate agent – current" for the third time.
In 2018, Caballero became a first-time Guinness World Record title holder for "most annual home sales transactions…" with 3,556 verified home sales in 2016. In 2019, he became a two-time Guinness World Record title holder, breaking his own record with 5,801 verified home sales in 2018.
"One Guinness World Record title is the honor of a lifetime. But three? It's simply stunning," said Caballero. "Developing leading-edge real estate technology rewards me for doing something I love every day. This award certainly is the icing on the cake," he added.
Caballero is real estate's most productive real estate agent, having sold more homes than any individual or team every year since 2016, according to research from RealTrends. Between 2004 and 2020, Caballero has 43,265 home sales totaling $15.188 billion in volume.
In 2015, Ben became the first real estate agent to exceed $1 billion in total home sales. Additionally, he is the only agent to exceed $2 billion in total home sales in a single year, a feat achieved in 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Caballero's new record translates into selling an average of more than 120 homes a week, or 17 home sales a day, every single day of the year.
A highly acclaimed innovator and technological pioneer, he developed HomesUSA.com's proprietary SaaS listings management and marketing platform for his production builder clients. Caballero attributes his individual record-setting production to the efficiencies of the technology platform he created.
