1 Nancy Tassone Jameson Sotheby’s $296.0 million

2 Jeff Lowe Compass $271.3 millionQ: Which countertop surface would you put into a home right now?A: I think quartzite, not quartz, is the coolest new countertop. It’s more expensive than quartz, but it’s real stone and has the durability of quartz.

3 Matt Laricy Americorp Ltd. $161.6 millionQ: Should I renovate before I put my property on the market?A: Not a full renovation. Do small things. If you have blond cabinets, paint them white. Put in a subway tile backsplash. Or if you have those old 2002 colors of puke green and maroon — remember when those were popular? — paint it a soft gray.

4 Robert Picciariello Prello Realty Inc. $129.1 million

5 Susan Miner Premier Relocation $122.5 millionQ: What would sellers be surprised to learn decreases the value of a home?A: Pictures of your family. It’s really distracting. A lot of times potential buyers will walk in and actually focus more on the pictures on the wall and who owns the home than the home itself.

6 Jena Radnay @Properties $110.8 millionQ: What makes a property unsellable?A: When a house is unkempt. You look into the furnace room and see cobwebs, or in the basement and see boxes, and you can tell there’s been no care. It’s like a human body. It might look fine on the outside, but if someone opens up your heart and sees clogged vessels, that tells the whole story.

17 Nathan Stillwell John Greene $48.6 million

18 Ryan T. Smith Re/Max $48.6 millionQ: What’s the best time to put your house on the market?A: Late February or early March. A lot of families are looking to move in the summer, so if you get it ready by then, it’s in between school years and after the winter season, when people get lethargic.
