Rounding out the Top 25 were Laura Drammer of the Los Olivos office; and Dan Johnson, Montecito.

Dan Encell also received the prestigious 20 Year Legend Award, which recognizes long standing career performance at the highest levels. 

In the Top 25 Teams category, Calcagno & Hamilton in the Montecito office placed No. 5 among the Medium Size Teams (6-10 licensed agents).
