Denver, CO – June 16, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — An overwhelming majority of families start their home search online and they find what they’re looking for on www.remax.com, the number one real estate franchise website. With advanced search properties and complete home listings in thousands of cities and towns, the site also connects homebuyers and sellers with award-winning and experienced RE/MAX agents through the RE/MAX LeadStreet® system. To date, remax.com and Leadstreet have provided more than 10 million unique leads for RE/MAX Associates across the country. And, those agents have helped millions of families buy and sell homes.
“The success of LeadStreet and remax.com is proof of our dedication to customer service and our dedication to our agents,” said Kristi Graning, RE/MAX Senior Vice President of eBusiness and Emerging Technologies. “The fact that RE/MAX agents have received more than 10 million leads, without the referral fee that our competitors typically charge, has brought more experienced real estate professionals to our network. And, those professionals make their customers a priority.”
LeadStreet debuted in 2006 and has sent out an average of 2 million leads a year to RE/MAX agents via email, which means they can receive leads on any computer or mobile device and get back to the customer within minutes.
“Staying on the cutting edge of technology is extremely important. Homebuyers and sellers today expect a quick response and they deserve one,” said Graning. “The combination of LeadStreet and remax.com has helped our agents become the most productive sales force in the industry.”
Two recent respected national surveys show RE/MAX agents continue to outperform their competitors, selling more homes, assisting more families, and leading all other national real estate companies in sales performance.
In the REAL Trends 500 survey, the average RE/MAX agent achieved 14.5 Transaction Sides in 2010, compared with the 6.8 average of all others in the survey. In the 2011 RISMedia Power Broker Report, RE/MAX agents averaged an impressive 14.7 transaction sides, outselling many competitors by more than two-to-one.
