Keystone Real Estate Group, Inc., specializing in residential and commercial brokerage in Rhode Island and Massachusetts, today announced that Jean Allard has earned the “2013 Rhode Island Five Star Real Estate Agent” rating. This is the second successive year she has earned this designation. 

Allard, Senior Real Estate Specialist and Vice President of Keystone Real Estate Group, Inc. is among four percent of the real estate agents in the Rhode Island area who received this recognition based on research with clients, peers and industry experts. Results were based on feedback from over 7,000 real estate buyers and sellers that were polled in 2012 between February and October.

Among the criteria used in the survey to determine the Five Star Realtor list are integrity, market knowledge, and customer service. Candidates are also evaluated based on communication skills, negotiation, closing preparedness, and the ability to find the right home for buyers. For sellers, the candidates must excel in the marketing of the home.  Overall satisfaction and willingness to refer to others are also factors.

The list of recipients will be featured in the September issue of Rhode Island Monthly.

“We’re so proud, though not surprised that Jean is recognized as a top realtor of the region,” said Dan Awde, President and Principal Broker of Keystone Real Estate Group, Inc. “There could be no better representative of our firm and no better advocate for the best interests of our clients.”   

Allard is an active member of the Rhode Island Assisted Living Association, the Senior Agenda Coalition, the Rhode Island Association of Realtors, and the National Association of Realtors.
