RE/MAX Named Top 15 Fastest-Growing Franchise

Global Franchisor Only Real Estate Brokerage Franchise Listed By Entrepreneur Magazine

February 22, 2017 // // DENVER - RE/MAX, LLC, a leading real estate brokerage franchise, has been ranked as one of the world’s fastest-growing franchises by Entrepreneur magazine. The global real estate franchisor was the highest ranking real estate franchise on the “2017 Top Fastest Growing Franchises” list, taking the 15th spot overall. This is the fourth consecutive year RE/MAX has been named on the list.

“Our unique business model revolutionized the housing industry over 44 years ago by putting real estate agents first,” said Chris Pflueger, Vice President, Business Development, RE/MAX, LLC. “Today, RE/MAX has more offices, in more countries, than any other real estate brand. RE/MAX has continued growing because our franchisees are able to independently run their businesses while receiving leading-edge tools, on-demand education and the support they need from a global brand.”

Highlights of the “2017 Top Fastest Growing Franchises” include:

  • RE/MAX is the only real estate brokerage franchise on the list with franchisors like Dunkin Donuts, Jimmy Johns and Orangetheory Fitness
  • RE/MAX ranked #15 overall, up from #17 in 2016 and #45 in 2015

Entrepreneur magazine’s “Fastest Growing” list is a spin-off of the magazine’s annual “Franchise 500” survey, the oldest and most comprehensive franchise ranking in the world. The fastest-growing rankings are based on the number of new franchise units added in the U.S. and Canada from July 2015 to July 2016.

In the U.S., RE/MAX experienced the highest percentage of franchise sales growth in the Carolinas, New York and Florida regions in 2016.

Earlier this year, RE/MAX was named as the top real estate franchise and ranked in the top 10 of the prestigious “Franchise 500” survey. Companies are chosen for the list based on multiple criteria, including financial strength, stability, size and growth rate.

With a presence in over 100 countries and territories, the RE/MAX network’s global footprint is unmatched by any other real estate brand. Internationally, RE/MAX experienced the strongest franchise sales growth in Latin America and Europe last year. Increased franchise sales contributed to the global franchisor’s total agent count, which grew by 7.4 percent year-over-year, as of the third quarter in 2016. Over 110,000 agents worldwide now call RE/MAX home.
