DENVER - May 13, 2014 // PRNewswire // - Once again, real estate agents affiliated with RE/MAX rank among the most productive in the United States. Data contained in two national surveys show that, among the national franchise brands, RE/MAX had the highest per-agent home sales in 2013. The REAL Trends 500 data shows RE/MAX agents averaged 17.8 transaction sides compared to an average of 8.4 for all other agents in the survey. Similar results were found in the RISMedia Power Broker Report where the difference was 17.5 vs. 8.4.
"These respected industry surveys regularly show that RE/MAX agents perform at a very high level," said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly."Real estate is a highly competitive industry, but it's clear that when consumers choose an agent, they look for an experienced person they can trust with a complex financial transaction."
RE/MAX has held #1 market share in the United States and Canada every year since 1999. Agents affiliated with RE/MAX regularly earn high scores for their productivity in these annual surveys of the country's largest brokerages.
Data from the 2014 REAL Trends 500 shows that RE/MAX agents averaged a significantly higher number of transaction sides compared to agents at the other national franchise brands. Based on performance in 2013, the RE/MAX average of 17.8 home sales was about twice as high as the averages posted by agents with many competitors, such as Coldwell Banker/NRT (9.1), Century 21 (8.4), Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices (7.9) and Keller Williams (7.2). Nearly identical results were reported earlier in the 2014 RISMedia Power Broker Report.
When all brokerages in the 2014 REAL Trends 500 survey are ranked by home sales per agent, RE/MAX brokerages claim 91 of the top 100 spots. RE/MAX agents also averaged $3.9 million in sales volume, 60% higher than the $2.5 million average of all other agents in the REAL Trends 500 survey.
In 2013, RE/MAX grew by a total of 710 new franchises, including an expansion to 14 countries. This made a year-end global footprint of 97 countries, an international presence greater than any real estate organization.
