The 2023 Agents of Influence were announced, and The Real Deal caught up with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty’s President Daniel de la Vega to learn what set these agents apart and to get his take on where his team is heading this year. The elite agents on the list represent the best-performing real estate professionals along Florida’s East Coast, a territory known for its variety of high-end properties and influx of international capital. Succeeding here is a badge of honor, and the Agents of Influence have proven themselves worthy time and again, as the market continues to evolve.

“2022 was another banner year for our agents, but it did come with some unique challenges,” said de la Vega, who highlighted historically low inventory, macroeconomic headwinds, and rising interest rates as just a few of the hurdles that his team had to jump last year. What separated the top performers from their peers was their ability to “expertly navigate the quickly shifting market to guide their clients and help them find wonderful investment opportunities,” said de la Vega. “What sets a top producer apart is their ability to consistently provide incredible value to their clients, regardless of the market’s current conditions.”
