LAKELAND, FL, April 22, 2020 – Jeff Cusson, CCIM, senior advisor of SVN|Saunders Ralston Dantzler Real Estate, received the Realtors® Land Institute (RLI) APEX Awards Program’s 2019 Top 20 Producer Award. The award recognizes the highest-producing land agents in the country based on qualifying sales production volume for the year. Cusson’s transactions for 2019 totaled $80,159,560.

“I’m honored to be selected by the RLI to be a part of this prestigious group of top twenty land professionals in the country,” Cusson said. “It sounds cliche, but, it was truly a team effort with our outstanding marketing staff and backroom professionals along with the reputation that the Saunders group has developed over the past 30 plus years. The most rewarding part, though, was bringing together a number of friends and customers on transactions that were beneficial to both sides.”

All land professionals recognized as part of the RLI APEX Awards Program are active members of RLI. RLI is a national membership organization for the land real estate profession. Members of RLI specialize in land brokerage of all types of land including farms, ranches, recreational, timberland, vineyards, orchards, undeveloped tracts of land, transitional and development land.
