Top Residential Real Estate Firms in the Triangle

Each year the Triangle Business Journal publishes a Book of Lists to guide both locals and visitors of the Triangle towards the “best of the best” when it comes to services, food, and more. For many years, Hodge & Kittrell Sotheby’s International Realty has been named one of the Top Residential Real Estate Firms in the Triangle. Out of the 25 agencies mentioned in the book of lists, our company stands as the most established firm having served the Triangle for 52 years and counting.

In 2020, we were ranked 12th out of 25 firms in the Raleigh-Durham market area and four of our agents made the list of Top Residential Real Estate Agents in the area as well. These stats come from an array of factors such as total sales volume and average transaction price. We take immense pride in providing our community and clients with exceptional services and it shows in our results.
