Industry Surveys, Research Rank RE/MAX #1

Agents Most Productive, Consumers Think of RE/MAX First

DENVER, CO – July 11, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — The numbers from three prestigious national industry surveys are in, and they show that RE/MAX agents continue to outperform competitors, helping more homebuyers and sellers realize their dreams.

The recently released RISMedia Power Broker Report reveals that agents at RE/MAX brokerages averaged 16.8 transaction sides compared to the 8.1 average of agents at all other participating brokerages. That’s a difference of more than two to one. And, when the 1,200 participating brokerages in the report were ranked by transaction sides per agent, RE/MAX held 90 of the top 100 positions.

“Homebuyers and sellers have a choice when it comes to real estate, and they clearly prefer to work with RE/MAX agents,” said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly. “The numbers don’t lie. They show our agents are doing more to help turn our nation’s economy around as this housing market continues to improve.”

Two other reports this year showcased REMAX agents’ productivity. The 2013 REAL Trends 500 survey showed RE/MAX agents averaged 17.1 transaction sides in 2012, as compared to the 7.9 average of all competing agents in the survey. Overall, 118 RE/MAX brokerages qualified to be ranked among the top 500 – more than any other competitor.

And, in the Wall Street Journal and REAL Trends “The Thousand” ranking, RE/MAX agents held 98 of the 500 spots for most transaction sides closed. That’s nearly one out of five – and more than any other real estate brand in the report, which ranks participating agents based on 2012 residential production.

For consumers, RE/MAX means real estate. When asked in a recent third-party survey to name real estate brands, more consumers named RE/MAX. And, RE/MAX was the company named first, more than any other brand.*

“We’re honored by the trust of our customers, and our agents will continue to make it a priority to deliver the service that they’ve come to expect,” said Kelly.
