Alan Shafran Inducted Into HomeGain Million Dollar Club

Emeryville, California (EastBayDaily) — HomeGain®, a leading real estate website, today announced that Alan Shafran, Realtor® with The Alan Shafran Group of Prudential California Realty in La Costa, CA, and HomeGain AgentEvaluator® member, has reached one million dollars in gross lifetime commissions with HomeGain.

“HomeGain has been instrumental to building my online business,” stated Alan Shafran. “AgentEvaluator consistently puts me in touch with home buyers and sellers in my area. HomeGain is the secret sauce to growing my client list, to closing 20 percent additional homes per year, and to making me one of the top Realtors® in the U.S.”

“Congratulations to Alan for this high level of achievement,” stated Louis Cammarosano, General Manager at HomeGain. “We are pleased that Alan and other Realtors are finding tremendous success with AgentEvaluator. Each quarter we add dozens of new members to the AgentEvaluator Silver Club ($50,000 in gross commissions from HomeGain leads), Gold Club ($75,000 in gross commissions) and Platinum Club ($125,000 in gross commissions) which now top 200, 250 and 300 members, respectively. The success of HomeGain members in these challenging times highlights the quality of Realtors in our network and the efficacy of our programs. Unlike our competitors who incessantly tout their traffic statistics, we choose instead to highlight the success of our real estate agents.”

Mr. Shafran is the second real estate agent to be inducted into the HomeGain Million Dollar Club. Eric Pakulla of RE/MAX Advantage Realty in Maryland was the first AgentEvaluator member to reach the one million dollar mark in 2007.
