Ben Caballero Becomes the First "Billion Dollar Agent"

bcaballero photoAmerica's number one Realtor® for the last four straight years – Ben Caballero, president of Texas-based – has become the first billion-dollar producer in the world for total home sales last year. Caballero personally was responsible for 2,491 home sales, totaling $1,022,000,000 in 2015.

Uniquely, nearly all of his transactions were new home sales for more than 40 homebuilder brands that he represents throughout the Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin metro areas. Caballero's feat is the result of a highly inventive technology he developed: an online listing management platform that streamlines the MLS listing and marketing process for homebuilders, charging a flat-fee versus a sales commission.

" allows the hands-on ability to update the information as often as needed or to change the status of the home listing the moment a sale occurs. This allows Toll Brothers to maintain a consistent and accurate level of home listing information among all inventory, a key factor for the success of Toll Brothers' available homes for sale in the state of Texas," said D'Anne Lancaster, Toll Brothers National Online Sales Concierge Manager.

Caballero is expected to keep his top ranking when The Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends announce its new list of "The Thousand" top real estate producing agents in June. He has been the number one agent in the USA for the last four years, outranking all others on the list in two categories, (1) number of real estate sales transactions, and (2) cumulative transaction (dollar) volume, and he also is the only agent to surpass these same two categories for real estate teams. In 2014, Caballero registered 2,383 home sales representing $925 million in volume. The second-ranked agent had 463 sales, meaning Caballero sold five times as many homes as the second ranked U.S. agent.

From 2010 to 2015, Caballero's total home sale volume tally is $4,503 billion. To put his 2015 new home sales numbers in perspective, Caballero sold an average of more than 47 homes per week, or more than one sale every business hour.
