RE/MAX NO.1 among real estate franchises

For the fifth consecutive year, RE/MAX, LLC ranked as the leading real estate franchise organization in the Franchise Times Top 200. The survey is based upon annual worldwide sales.

In the 2013 Top 200 ranking, RE/MAX placed 14th among all franchises, gaining two places over its standing last year. RE/MAX also ranked 6th among the Top 200 franchisors for sales growth. In the overall standings, the top ranked franchises were McDonald’s, 7-Eleven, KFC, SUBWAY and Burger King.

“To be recognised among these well-respected brands is truly an honour,” said Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO. “As we continue to celebrate 40 years of helping homebuyers and sellers achieve their dream of home ownership, this confirms the outstanding productivity of RE/MAX agents around the world.”

This year marks the 40th anniversary for RE/MAX and the 35th anniversary of its iconic hot air balloon logo. Buoyed by the U.S. housing recovery and improving economic conditions worldwide, the global franchisor now enjoys an international footprint in more than 90 countries and a growing agent count of more than 90 000.

“Our success as a top franchisor is a direct reflection of our hardworking and talented Sales Associates around the world,” Kelly said. “They proudly provide a high level of customer service, and that results in increasing sales performance.”

Throughout 2013, RE/MAX has been recognised as an industry leader in a variety of real estate surveys. RE/MAX agents averaged more transaction sides than agents with any other national brand in the United States according to the 2013 RIS Media Power Broker Report.

In addition, the 2013 REAL Trends 500 survey showed that RE/MAX agents averaged 17.1 transaction sides in 2012, compared to the 7.9 average for all other competing agents in the survey. Eclipsing their colleagues in North America, RE/MAX agents in Southern Africa have averaged 19.2 transaction sides in 2013, more than twice the industry average.

RE/MAX of Southern Africa was also recognised by Finweek as the largest real estate brand in Southern Africa. Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa, says: “Size does matter when it comes to getting your property exposed to as many buyers as possible worldwide but merely being big is not enough. Our extensive network of agents who average over 13 years of real estate experience focus on a high quality of service, which means getting your home sold at the best price in the shortest time with the least amount of stress.”
