Franchise Sales Continue to Grow at RE/MAX

DENVER, CO – August 12, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Even though the housing market continues to search for solid footing, global real estate franchisor, RE/MAX, continues to experience growth in its network.

From its corporate headquarters in Denver, CO, RE/MAX, LLC announced today that franchise sales are up nearly 15% in the first half of 2011, a mark that looks to outpace last year’s total franchise sales, which recorded an impressive 30% increase over 2009.

“RE/MAX is proud to be number one in our industry and we understand that this is what motivates a business owner to join us,” said RE/MAX Chairman and Co-Founder Dave Liniger. “While we’ve have some of the best sales professionals in the business, we also have the most recognized brand, a well known reputation and we’re proud to be best at what we do.”

Franchise sales in the United States were up 114% from the same period in 2010, with Florida (+225%) and Northern California (+125%) leading the way. RE/MAX global franchise sales are also up with Brazil out front, experiencing growth of 133% in the first half of 2011.

“For over 38 years, RE/MAX has succeeded in all kinds of markets, but it’s especially true today that franchise owners prefer to align with a high quality organization that has a proven track record,” Liniger added.

The franchise sales announcement comes on the heels of the 2011 J.D. Power and Associates Home Buyer/Seller Studysm which ranked RE/MAX with the highest overall satisfaction for home sellers and home buyers among national full service real estate firms.

Add that to two national industry surveys that ranked RE/MAX agent productivity far above all other national franchise agents and it’s not difficult to see why over 300 new and converted RE/MAX offices have opened their doors so far in 2011.

RE/MAX will be celebrating its many 2011 successes at the annual RE/MAX Broker/Owner Conference in Los Angeles, CA, beginning this Sunday . The event runs August 13-16 and will host thousands of the network’s most influential leaders and top managers from around the world.
