Ben Caballero Crushes the World Record for Annual US Home Sales

America’s No. 1-ranked sells over 7,000 homes in 2023, totaling $3.6+ billion

DALLAS, April 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Ben Caballero, the No. 1-ranked real estate agent in the US for ten consecutive years by RealTrends and a three-time Guinness World Record title holder, smashed his own world record for both the number of annual home sales and the annual transaction volume last year. According to Multiple Listing Service data, in 2023, Caballero individually sold an unprecedented 7,012 homes totaling $3.638 billion.

He is the Guinness Worlds Record title holder for “Most annual home sales transactions through MLS by an individual sell side real estate agent – current,” for 6,438 homes sold in 2020.

His 7,012 home sales last year translates into an average of more than 19 homes sold every single day of the year, or nearly $10 million in home sales daily. Last year marks the second-straight year Caballero eclipsed the $3 billion home sales mark, as he was the first individual real estate agent in history to exceed the $3 billion barrier with his $3.06 billion annual transaction volume total in 2022.

Among his other firsts as a real estate agent:

  • First individual agent to reach $1 billion or more in annual sales (2015, 2016, 2017, 2021)
  • First individual agent to reach $2 billion or more in annual sales (2018, 2019, 2020)
  • First individual agent to reach $3 billion or more in annual sales (2022, 2023)
  • First individual agent to exceed $20 billion in total home sales (2004-2023)
  • First individual agent to exceed 60,000 total home sales (2004-2023)

Ben Caballero became a Guinness World Record holder title for the first time in 2016 with 3,556 verified home sales. He set a new world record in 2018 with 5,801 home sales and again in 2020 with 6,438 home sales and remains the current title holder.

“I have been blessed for more than six decades to work in the best business in the greatest state in the world,” said Caballero, who is 83. He became a Realtor at 21 and was an award-winning home builder for 18 years. A US Air Force veteran and second-generation Cuban American originally from Tampa, Florida, both his parents were real estate brokers. He moved to Dallas in 1960 and lives and works in the North Dallas area.

Texas is the best market for new homes in the US year-in and year-out. Clearly, becoming a Texan is one of the best decisions I ever made,” he added.

Caballero is believed to have sold more homes than any other real estate agent in history. From 2004 to 2023, he sold 61,126 homes, with a total transaction volume of $23.866 billion.
