Agent Lands in Guinness World Records for Sales
May 17, 2018
Real estate pro Ben Caballero of Dallas has made history: He’s the first real estate agent ever to be recognized by the Guinness World Records for a mammoth number of home sales. Caballero sold 3,556 verified homes in a single year—this means essentially selling an average of more than 68 homes per week, or nearly 10 homes per day, every day of the week.
Caballero was honored this week for his achievements at a REAL Trends conference in Denver.
On the Guinness website, Caballero is listed as achieving the “most annual homes sales transactions through MLS by an individual sell side real estate agent.” Caballero achieved his feat of 3,556 sales in a single year in 2016. He sold seven times more homes than his closest competitor (467 homes). His home sales in 2016 totaled a new individual real estate agent sales record of $1.444 billion.
“Being named a Guinness World Record holder is truly the highlight of my professional career,” Caballero says. “It’s incredible that, until now, no real estate agent has ever been recognized for setting a world record for home sales. I am honored.”
Caballero is the broker-owner of HomesUSA.com, based in Addison, Texas. He specializes in new-home sales for 65 builders in the Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Austin, and San Antonio areas.
Guinness World Records is the global authority that recognizes record-breaking achievements.
