REF JulyAug2017 Top Brokers: Hotels
In the July/August issue of Real Estate Forum, we will be profiling some of the most prolific investment sales brokers in the commercial lodging real estate sector. This inaugural feature will rank the top agents throughout the country, based on 12 months' worth of transaction activity.

In order to even the playing field between nominees in varying markets, the editors have developed the following methodology: All nominees will be given a score for the four fields on the form—Total number, total dollar volume and total number of rooms for deals closed during the 12-month period indicated. The sum of the three scores will determine their final rank. In the event of a tie, the total dollar volume of deals will serve as a tie breaker.

The finalists will be presented in the July/August issue of Forum by overall rank, category and region, as well as in a special supplement on Ranking for individual fields will also be indicated.


All transactions represented in the totals submitted must have closed in the 12-month period between April 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017, and all nominees must have been directly involved with the transactions. If submitting a team, all members must have been directly involved with all the deals submitted for the entire group. 

For verification purposes, all nominees must provide a list of all transactions included in the submitted figures in an excel file. Partial lists—such as blacked-out buyer/seller information—are acceptable. At minimum, the verification provided must include:

    • A list of all transactions and identifying information (if name/address cannot be provided, then a unique transaction ID would be ideal.
    • Value of each transaction and total number of hotel rooms involved.
    • Whether the nominee(s) represented the buyer, seller or both.
NOTE: Deal sheets are for verification purposes only and will remain fully confidential

All entries must be electronically submitted via this form. Late or incomplete entries will not be considered.

Deadline for submissions is midnight on June 14, 2017.
