RE/MAX Ranked #1 in the US

RE/MAX agents continue to lead the US real estate industry, ranking as the most productive among the elite national real estate franchises, according to preliminary results from the 2013 RISMedia Power Broker Report Top 500. 

The report showed the productivity of RE/MAX agents was more than double the average of all other competing agents in 2012. An analysis of the data also showed that 71 RE/MAX brokerages were among the best 100 when ranked by transaction sides per agent.

“Year after year, RE/MAX agents outperform their national competitors,” said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly. “Whether it’s in the difficult market we saw a couple of years ago or the rapidly recovering market we have today, consumers know very well which agents are best able to help them with all their real estate needs.”

According to the report, in 2012, RE/MAX agents averaged 16.9 transaction sides each – an increase of 11% over their 2011 performance. The average for all other agents in the report was just 8.1 sides. “The numbers are a tribute to the professionalism and dedication of each and every one of our agents and offices,” said Kelly. “They’ve never been satisfied with just doing what’s expected. They’re always going above and beyond.”

The preliminary report ranked the country’s 500 best performing brokerages by total transaction sides. RE/MAX led all competitors by qualifying the most brokerages, 116, among the 500 participating brokerages. RISMedia will release a final Power Broker report later this spring, which will include a total of 1,000 brokerages. The preliminary data was published in this month’s edition of RISMedia’s Real Estate magazine.

Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, says that locally RE/MAX of Southern Africa has also achieved some remarkable results having taken top honours at the RE/MAX Las Vegas convention in March this year, when the region was awarded as the top performing one in the world. 
 
 “On average RE/MAX of Southern Africa agents outsell the industry by three to one. RE/MAX of Southern Africa agents also account for approximately 5% of all agents in the country, but are responsible for over 15% of the property sales transactions.  We have also experienced rapid expansion with more than 30 new RE/MAX franchises opened in the Southern African region during 2012,” says Goslett. “This brings the RE/MAX of Southern Africa network to over 170 offices and 1800 agents.”

RE/MAX of Southern Africa was adjudged South Africa’s Franchisor of the year for all categories by FASA in 2003 and was ranked as the largest real estate brand in the country in a Finweek survey feature during 2011.
 
“RE/MAX intends to continue on its path of success by attracting productive estate agents who offer great customer service and who want to enjoy the benefits of being part of the dominant worldwide real estate brand,” Goslett concludes.
