September 02, 2014 - DENVER - RE/MAX, LLC has been named among the leading low-cost U.S. franchises for 2014 by Entrepreneur magazine. The global real estate leader ranked the highest among real estate brokerage franchises, and 11th overall on this year's list, which included 95 franchises "that can be started for less than $50,000." The list appeared in the magazine's August edition.
"RE/MAX believes in the American Dream, no matter if you're buying a home, or starting your own business," said Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO. "Our franchises are priced competitively so that many more entrepreneurs have the opportunity to build their future. It's no wonder we continue to grow."
To be considered for the low-cost rating, franchises had to be rated among Entrepreneur's 2014 Franchise 500, based on "quantifiable criteria such as system size, growth and financial strength and stability." RE/MAX was the highest-ranked real estate brokerage in the Franchise 500.
Earlier this year, Entrepreneur also rated RE/MAX 16th on its list of fastest-growing franchises. Again, RE/MAX was the highest-ranked among real estate franchise brokerages.
This year, RE/MAX is celebrating its 41st anniversary and continues to be recognized as an industry leader. RE/MAX was also named the leading real estate organization in the Franchise Times Top 200 for the fifth consecutive year in 2013 and was the only real estate company to be included in the 2013 Top 50 Franchises for Minorities as compiled by the National Minority Franchising Initiative.
RE/MAX was founded in 1973 by Dave and Gail Liniger, with an innovative, entrepreneurial culture affording its agents and franchisees the flexibility to operate their businesses with great independence. Over 96,000 agents provide RE/MAX a global reach of more than 95 countries. Nobody sells more real estate than RE/MAX.
