DENVER, May 15, 2012 // PRNewswire // -- Among the national real estate franchises, RE/MAX agents continue to be the most productive. In both the 2012 REAL Trends 500 and the RIS Media Power Broker surveys, RE/MAX agents continue to be the clear leaders with respect to agent productivity. The two prestigious annual surveys, which rank performance in 2011, showed once again that RE/MAX leads all national franchises when it comes to helping U.S. homebuyers and sellers.
RE/MAX brokerages claimed a dominant 44 of the Top 50 brokerages when ranked by transaction sides per agent in the REAL Trends 500. The survey also showed that RE/MAX agents averaged 15.1 transaction sides in 2011, an improvement of 4% from the previous survey and a level two times greater than the average of agents with most other national franchises.
"Since 1997 it's been true that nobody sells more real estate than RE/MAX. Some may brag about their numbers, but quality and performance is what consumers are looking for," said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly. "RE/MAX agents are performing well at a critical time when housing is starting to improve, making them the best choice to help homebuyers and sellers in today's market."
RE/MAX increased its rankings by 5%, to 116 brokerages in the 2012 REAL Trends 500; no other organization had more brokerages recognized. RE/MAX agents also led all national franchises in total sales volume with $3 million, 60% more than the average of all other agents in the survey.
Another annual industry ranking, the RIS Media Power Broker Report confirmed that RE/MAX agents outperform agents with the other national franchise companies, with an average sides per agent of 15.1 and average sales volume of $3.2 million. RE/MAX sides per agent in the Power Broker Report were 21% higher than the closest national competitor. The average of all other agents in the report was 7.2.
"We are so proud of our agents because we know they are the choice of millions of American families who may be facing a difficult situation or searching for the home of their dreams," added Kelly.
Year after year, RE/MAX agents are among the country's top performers because of the education they receive through RE/MAX University.
