January 13, 2016 // // DENVER – For the fourth consecutive year, RE/MAX, LLC holds the lead among real estate brands in the 37th annual 2016 Franchise 500 survey by Entrepreneur magazine. RE/MAX has held the top spot for 13 of the last 17 years.

In addition to the ranking as the leading real estate brand, the Denver-based franchisor was also ranked #21 among all franchises. This represents a significant jump from last year’s position at #75.

“The RE/MAX business model is attractive to franchisees because it’s agent-centric and focused on a high level of customer service,” said Chris Pflueger, Vice President, Business Development, RE/MAX, LLC. “Our franchisees benefit from the reach of a worldwide network and the many tools and resources that RE/MAX provides.”
