The list published annually by national research company RealTrends shows the agent with Douglas Elliman of Las Vegas handled $212.9 million in transactions. She distanced herself from No. 2 on the list in luxury Reator Zar Zanganeh of The Agency with $68.6 million. Routh-Silberman handeled $145.5 million in 2022 and $228 million in 2021.

The rankings are determined by brokerages submitting the data to RealTrends. IS Luxury said they submitted the data but weren’t included in the rankings even though they would have three members high up on the list.

Ivan Sher, owner of IS Luxury, the leading luxury brokerage in 2023 as previously reported by Real Estate Millions, said he personally handled $238.1 million in transactions. In 2023, IS Luxury Realtors Anthony Spiegel and Madison Blau handled $89.9 million and $89.7 million, respectively, Sher said.

Among teams with five agents or less, Randy Char of Las Vegas Sotheby’s International was No. 1 with $65.4 million. Char had $64.1 million in 2023.

Routh-Silberman said she worked her entire career to get where she’s at today. It’s not easy to reach your goals but she said she’s happy with what she has accomplished.

“When I saw the rankings and I was No. 1 in the city I figured I would get that, but I always wanted to be No. 1 in the state,” Routh-Silberman said. “I owe my career to a lot of hard work and surrounding myself with the best people and certainly I owe a great deal to Rich MacDonald (developer of MacDonald Highlands) who is my mentor and taught me how to go from the best to No. 1 across the board. The old saying ‘hard work pays off’ is that.”

Routh-Silberman, who is also director of sales at MacDonald Highlands with its land and housing development, said Realtors sometimes have to pay a price to achieve a level of success, giving up time with family.

“When my family asks what I am doing and why are you working so hard — (I am) working so hard to rank right across the board,” Routh-Silberman said. “I had never broken the top 50 (in the nation) and I was so ecstatic.”

Routh-Silberman said 2024 is off to a good start and expects by the end of year she will surpass 2023 totals and her record year in 2021.

“I’m peaking when everyone else is peaking,” Routh-Silberman said. “Las Vegas is peaking and MacDonald Highlands is peaking. I’m at the top of my game and don’t plan to go anywhere but keep going higher.”

Zanganeh said he was surprised he was ranked that high because he’s been delegating more work to agents in the office and given more priority to clients he’s working with, personally. It’s a focus on less volume and higher-dollar amount, he added.

“It’s flattering because I don’t take credit for some of the other agents and concentrate on growing some of our other agents in different neighborhoods so I can focus on neighborhoods we prioritize, which for me is Summerlin, Ascaya and downtown historic district,” Zanganeh said. “I think I will have a bigger-dollar amount this year doing less transactions.”

Zanganeh said the 2024 luxury market is even better in 2023 and the brokerage remains overwhelmed with buyers from out of state. The Agency’s California office has sent them 17 clients this year in the multimillion-dollar price range.

“We’ve been very busy and fortunate to do 20 percent of our business off market with homes that aren’t even listed yet,” Zanganeh said.

In 2023, he said The Agency did $347.9 million in transactions and expects to approach $500 million in 2024.
