You may have heard how hot the Texas housing market is, but one Dallas-based real estate agent is on fire. Last week, Guinness World Records announced that Ben Caballero has beaten his own world record in home sales.
Caballero, the owner of HomesUSA.com, was already a two-time Guinness World Record holder when he broke his house sales record again, selling 6,438 homes totaling more than $2.46 billion in 2020.
With low-interest rates and low inventory, the market was very competitive in 2020. Still, Caballero had no problem matching builders with buyers in Houston, Dallas-Fort Worth, Austin, and San Antonio. He worked directly with 60-plus builders and broke his previous record of 5,801 verified home sales in 2018. His world record before that was 3,556 home sales transactions in 2016.
Caballero’s new record equates to selling more than 120 homes every week, or 17 properties per day, every day of the year.
“One Guinness World Record title is the honor of a lifetime. But three? It’s simply stunning,” Caballero said in a press release. His accomplishment is officially listed in the Guinness World Record for “Most annual house sales transactions using MLS (Multiple Listing Service) by a single sell-side real estate agent — current.”
The new world record was announced following a lengthy process of verification involving hundreds of pages of documentation. Caballero’s win will be published in the 2023 print edition of the Guinness Book of World Records on September 13, 2022.
Caballero became a real estate agent at 21 and also worked as a builder for 18 years.
In 2007, he developed HomesUSA.com’s one-of-a-kind SaaS (Software as a Service) listings management and marketing platform for his production builder clients. A well-known innovator and technology pioneer, Caballero attributes his record-breaking achievement to the efficiency of the technical infrastructure he established.
