Idaho Real Estate Agent Named to America’s Top 1,000

Boise REALTOR® Matt Bauscher Makes “The Thousand” List


REAL Trends + Tom Ferry, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal, published the 14th annual The Thousand list of America’s top 1,000 real estate sales professionals and teams. An abridged list of the designees is published in a recent edition of The Wall Street Journal. Coming in at #172 was none other than our very own Matt Bauscher. We were thrilled when we heard the news and wanted to share some details about the list and just what it represents.


REAL Trends + Tom Ferry The Thousand, as advertised in The Wall Street Journal, is an annual, national awards ranking sponsored by REAL Trends—the Trusted Source—and Tom Ferry International coaching. Designees are recognized as the top one-tenth of one percent of more than 1.4 million licensed Realtors® nationwide.


“The best individual agents and teams’ award-winning efforts were phenomenal considering the competition in the real estate market,” said Steve Murray, president of Castle Rock, Colo.- based consulting company REAL Trends, which compiled the list.


The Thousand is divided into four categories, each listing the top 250 designees: •

  • Individual Agent—Sales Volume
  • Individual Agent—Transaction Sides
  • Agent Team—Sales Volume
  • Agent Team—Transaction Sides

Individual Agent: Matt Bauscher, Amherst Madison, Boise, Idaho — Transaction Sides: 145 — List Place: #172

Idaho Real Estate Agent Named to America's Top 1,000

“The real estate sales professionals ranked in The Thousand have proven that they have the skills to grow their businesses year after year,” said Murray. “The average U.S. Realtor® sold nine homes in 2018. The average agent ranked in The Thousand sold 217 homes and the average team sold over 562 homes. These kinds of results show that those who commit to being full-time professionals can build meaningful businesses and succeed beyond expectations. Achieving this level of results is simply incredible.”


“The REAL Trends team set a precedent of what success looks like in our industry with The Thousand list,” says Tom Ferry, founder of coaching and training company Tom Ferry International. “We’re honored to partner in recognizing these talents and will continue to help agents fulfill their greatness.”


Our experience of working with Matt Bauscher was something that you only dream about when you sell your home. His very professional help as to how to present and price our home was over and above anything we had experienced before in real estate. In addition to dealing with Matt we had a wonderful experience with his skilled “crew” including Jenn, Tyson and Alicia whenever we had a question about anything during the short period of time that our home was on the market. Matt’s level of professionalism along with his knowledge of the local market along with the total professionalism of Amherst Madison Legacy Real Estate was far beyond anything that we had ever received or expected in a real estate group. We would suggest to anyone looking to buy or sell their home that they work with Matt and his hard working “crew”! Thanks again Matt…..

“In total, this year’s professionals in The Thousand closed 195,195 sides and sold more than $89.8 billion in 2018—a new record for sales volume with a 14 percent increase in sales volume and a 16.4 percent in sides over last year,” said Murray. “It is incredible to consider that 1,000 sales professionals and teams could accomplish so much.”
