RE/MAX Celebrates Strong Franchise Growth In First Quarter
Outstanding tools, technology and training fuel momentum
May 18, 2021 // Franchising.com // DENVER - RE/MAX, LLC announced today that in the first quarter of 2021, the global real estate franchisor sold over 160 franchises and renewed over 270 brokerages. Earlier this month, RE/MAX Holdings, Inc., the parent company of RE/MAX, announced in its first quarter 2021 earnings report that between January 1 and March 31, 2021, the company saw its largest year-over-year increase in agent count in over a decade. During that period, RE/MAX also expanded the brand’s presence in England, and further expanded to Wales.
Global RE/MAX agent count performance accelerated in the first quarter, growing more than 16% year over year in regions outside the U.S. and Canada and total agent count for the brand increased 6.4% to about 140,000 agents. Additionally, global growth during this timeframe included 102 franchises sold.
“We’ve grown at a rapid pace globally because there is an unmet need for experienced sales partners and professionals around the world,” said Shawna Gilbert, RE/MAX Vice President of Global Development. “We already have a presence in many of the places our competitors want to go and the offices we have in these regions are building on their strong foundations and growing to meet this demand.”
Peter Luft, RE/MAX Vice President of Franchise Sales, credits the franchisor’s growth in the U.S. in part to several important recent additions to the company’s value proposition. “We recently unveiled several new training programs, health care coverage, educational resources and enhancements to our technology suite so RE/MAX agents could leverage these unique competitive advantages to help them succeed in this incredibly tight market,” he said. “We have a compelling franchise model that is not only well-suited to meet the needs of today’s market but also adapt to the shifting trends in real estate for the future. It’s something we’ve done for nearly 50 years.”
In addition to significant agent growth and franchise sales achievements in 2021, RE/MAX, LLC was recently recognized for several franchise-related accolades by Entrepreneur Magazine, including: Being named a Fastest-Growing Franchise1 for the 8th straight year, and ranking #21 on the Top Franchises for Less Than $100,0002 list.
