For example, I have sold more properties in Stonebridge (which straddles 20850 and 20878) than any other agent in the last five years, and overall I have had four listings and three buyers in zip code 20850 in the last year, most of those in the Wootton High School district. Other agents may specialize in other neighborhoods in 20850.
You can Google 'Rockville MD Real Estate' and see which agent sites come up to try to narrow down your search for an agent. (My site is on the first page.)
I came across your question and it sounds like you are looking for an agent. If so, I would not recommend choose your brokerage based primarily on how many homes an agency has sold per zip code. The most important considerations for a buyer when choosing an agent or brokerage are service, follow-through, communication, availability and the reputation of the brokerage. Only some agencies have a reputation for consistency, integrity and ability to guide buyers through a sometimes complex buying process.
Try not be fooled by the statistics hype. Ask the right questions, interview more than one and analyze the numbers. Llewellyn Realtors is # 4 in Montgomery County, but we only have one office and the highest transactions per agent. But, most importantly, we have a great reputation and we work well with a number of other agencies in the area and across the country.
If you're open, feel free to contact Janice Young (301) 424-0900, she can help match you the right agent. I wish you the best of luck in your home search. This is a wonderful and exciting process.

As for an agent, you need to sit down with 2-3 and listen to what they have to say. You have to choose an agent you will be comfortable with from a communication perspective and have confidence that their performance is there to match.
If you want a list what broker sold what, let me know your neighborhood and/or ZIP code, and I'll send over the information. My office is at Old Georgetown and Executive Blvd if you want to stop in and chat.
Not all Firms and Real Estate Agents are the same, it would be to your benefit to research both the Agent and the Brokerage Firm they are affiliated with.
Feel free to browse through my webstie along with all the others.
Let me know if I can help you further.
