DENVER – Nearly 1,900 RE/MAX Associates are featured in the 2014 “America’s Best Real Estate Agents” rankings released this month. That is nearly 20 percent of the more than 9,500 real estate professionals who participated in the survey.
A total of 1,126 RE/MAX individual agents qualified for the rankings, compiled by industry analyst REAL Trends and based on 2013 home sales. RE/MAX agents earning spots based on transaction sides averaged 76 sides last year, while those making the list on the basis of sales volume averaged $28.9 million.
“RE/MAX agents sell more real estate than any other U.S. brand,” said Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO. “Our agents truly know the value of great customer service, which is one reason why they’re so productive, year after year, no matter the state of the real estate market.”
The report, which groups agents by state and metro area, also included 776 RE/MAX teams. The teams qualifying based on transaction sides averaged 143 sides, while those selected for sales volume averaged $48.8 million.
Many of the RE/MAX qualifiers are ranked by both transaction sides and sales volume.
In its second year, “America’s Best Real Estate Agents” is an offshoot of the REAL Trends “The Thousand,” as advertised in The Wall Street Journal. This report ranks the most productive 1,000 agents in the U.S. Those who made “The Thousand” also are included in “America’s Best” rankings.
In “The Thousand,” 112 of the 500 (one out of five) agents and teams ranked by transaction sides were from RE/MAX. In all categories, both sales volume and transaction sides, 147 of the 1,000 positions were held by RE/MAX agents. No other brand held more positions.
“The Thousand” and “America’s Best” rankings are not the only times this year that RE/MAX agents have been shown to be more productive. In the 2014 REAL Trends 500 survey of the country’s largest brokerages, the data shows RE/MAX agents averaged 17.8 transaction sides compared to an average of 8.4 for all other participating agents, based on 2013 production.
When all brokerages in the 2014 REAL Trends 500 survey are ranked by home sales per agent, RE/MAX brokerages claim 91 of the top 100 spots.
In addition to leading agent performance, RE/MAX also continues to grow. In 2013, RE/MAX added eleven new countries. This made a year-end global footprint of 97 countries, an international presence greater than any real estate organization.
RE/MAX, LLC, one of the world’s leading franchisors of real estate brokerage services, is a subsidiary of RE/MAX Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:RMAX).
