The group is now ranked in the top one half of 1 percent of the more than 1,100,000 REALTORS® nationwide.
The Thousand real estate professionals were announced on June 26, 2015, with four separate categories honoring the top 250 residential agents and agent teams for excellence in:

“Becoming a member of such an elite group as The Thousand is an incredible accomplishment in any market, but what this group did during these challenging times is impressive on so many levels,” said Marti Gallardo, vice president of classified advertising for The Wall Street Journal. “Their efforts topped 99.99 percent of the more than 1,100,000 REALTORS nationwide.”
“We are absolutely thrilled to be named to The Thousand,” said Brittingham and Gardiner who serve clients primarily in the Maryland and Delaware area. “Even with the market’s challenges, it’s incredibly gratifying to help clients find their dream homes as well as help them sell their properties quickly and for the highest price possible.”
