Elgin, IL, June 09, 2011 --(PR.com)-- RE/MAX Suburban, a multi-office brokerage, captured the top award for sales production during the recent 34th annual RE/MAX Northern Illinois awards ceremony. The office earned honors for notching the highest number of transactions and the greatest sales volume of all multi-office brokerages in the RE/MAX Northern Illinois region.
The agents at RE/MAX Suburban closed 2,381 transactions accounting for more than $603 million in closed sales volume in 2010 and they accomplished that in the midst of an exceptionally challenging residential real estate market.
Jim Nelson, Jr., one of the broker/owners of RE/MAX Suburban, accepted the award on behalf of the brokerage's other owners, Jim Nelson, Sr. and Bob Baker, who founded the firm in 1978 with a single office in Arlington Heights.
This kind of success isn't unusual for RE/MAX Suburban. It now operates seven offices in six suburban communities, Arlington Heights, Glen Ellyn, Libertyville, Mt. Prospect, Schaumburg and Wheaton, and, in the most recent Real Trends 500 survey of top producing brokerages nationwide, based on 2010 sales volume, RE/MAX Suburban ranked 180th in closed transactions and 155th in closed sales volume. It ranked 22nd among all U.S. RE/MAX firms.
The brokerage's co-owners say that RE/MAX Suburban's success is based on three principles: integrity, ethics and service.
