Winter Park, Florida, March 27, 2020 – The 2020 REAL Trends 500 survey revealed that RE/MAX agents at participating brokerages outsold competing agents, on average, by more than 2-to-1* last year. In the report – a widely followed ranking of large U.S. real estate brokerages – RE/MAX agents averaged 15.6 transaction sides, more than doubling the average (7.0) of all other agents from the participating brokerages. RE/MAX agents have held this 2-to-1 advantage in each of the last 10 years, starting in 2010.
RE/MAX 200 – RE/MAX Town & Country – RE/MAX Exclusive Collection locally owned and operated RE/MAX franchises, placed 485 among all real estate brands and 68 among RE/MAX companies with 2,035 transaction sides in 2019.
“This accomplishment demonstrates the unmatched performance of the professionals in the RE/MAX network,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “The events of the past few weeks are unprecedented, and these are challenging times, but the efforts of our network to support their communities, in and outside of real estate, is what we’re celebrating with this accolade. Now, more than ever, homebuyers and sellers need professional, trusted and adaptable real estate agents to help them navigate one of the biggest financial decisions of their lives. We’re all in this together, and I am humbled by the tenacity, talent and grit of the amazing people in our network.”
The REAL Trends 500 ranks participating large brokerages by total residential transaction sides, with 500 needed to qualify for participation. Of the 1,711 participating brokerages that qualified for the survey, 31 percent were affiliated with RE/MAX.
