DENVER - July 25, 2013 // PRNewswire // - RE/MAX agents sell more homes in the U.S. and Canada than any competitor, according to a recent study of buyers and sellers in both countries.
In the U.S., RE/MAX agents are involved in more home sales than any competitor, more than No. 2 Coldwell Banker, No. 3 Keller Williams, No. 4 Century 21, or No. 5 Prudential Real Estate.
In Canada, RE/MAX agents sell more homes than No. 2 Royal LePage, No. 3 Century 21, No. 4 Sutton, or No. 5 Coldwell Banker.
"We've always believed that homebuyers and sellers prefer RE/MAX agents over our competition and the results of this survey confirm it's true," said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly. "Year after year, our agents do more to help their customers realize their real estate dreams, and that's why they trust RE/MAX."
Marketing research specialists at MMR Strategy Group conducted the substantiation study from November 2012 to March 2013 for RE/MAX. It identified consumers who had bought or sold a home in the prior 12 months.
Results of the study in the U.S. are consistent with residential transaction totals released by RE/MAX and the five Realogy brands: Century 21, Coldwell Banker, ERA, Sotheby's and Better Homes & Gardens. Not releasing their transaction data were Keller Williams and Prudential Real Estate.
In all, RE/MAX agents closed 828,960 residential transaction sides in 2012, 25% more than second-place Coldwell Banker, based on Realogy's SEC Form 10-K.
RE/MAX agents have earned No. 1 market share in Canada every year since 1987, and every year in the U.S. since 1997.
Nobody sells more real estate than RE/MAX.
