I just received the news below via email from RE/MAX. I have shared similar information one-on-one with clients for years, but it’s always great to see it widely publicized:
RE/MAX topped competitors in the 2010 RISMedia Power Broker Report that ranks top real estate offices in the U.S. RE/MAX had 69 brokerages on the list, compared with Keller Williams (47), Coldwell Banker (36), Prudential (30) and Century 21 (23). And RE/MAX
agents averaged 15.1 transactions, a third more than our closest competitor – Keller Williams and Prudential agents averaged 5.9 transactions per agent. Bottom line, RE/MAX agents are truly the consumer’s favorite realtors with the experience they can count on and yes….we’re doing more to help buyers and sellers everyday!
RE/MAX excels in RISMedia’s just-released 2010 Power Broker Report, which ranks the top 300 U.S. brokerages based on 2009 transaction sides. RE/MAX placed 69 brokerages on the list, far outdistancing Keller Williams (47), Coldwell Banker (36), Prudential (30), Century 21 (23) and any other competitor.
What’s more, the 13,505 RE/MAX Associates within those brokerages closed 203,392 transaction sides last year, an average of 15.1 each. That figure easily eclipses the per-agent production of the other major franchises – Coldwell Banker agents averaged 10.1; Century 21 agents averaged 7.9; and Keller Williams and Prudential agents averaged 5.9. It was 18% better than the 2008 average.
The RE/MAX transaction total was more than 50,000 higher than any competitor’s, except for NRT, whose single brokerage has 46,000 agents. It had more sides, but averaged just six per agent.
Three RE/MAX brokerages – RE/MAX Alliance of Colorado, RE/MAX Results of Minnesota and RE/MAX Gold of California – each surpassed 10,000 sides to rank in the survey’s Top 25. All told, the RE/MAX brokerages in the Top 300 closed $44.4 billion in sales volume last year, representing a per-Associate average of $3.06 million.
In Austin and Central Texas, RE/MAX Capital City continues to grow and excel. Click these links to see that we closed more transactions than other RE/MAX offices in the area and we had the most productive agents among all brokerage firms.
It is a real pleasure and a genuine privilege to be among the “best of the best” real estate professionals in the country!
