CHICAGO, IL – May 18, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Recently, National Real Estate Investor magazine and the Lipsey Company both gave RE/MAX high rankings for the performance of its commercial real estate division in 2011.
National Real Estate Investor listed RE/MAX as one of its “Top 25 Commercial Brokerage Networks.” The Lipsey Company included RE/MAX in its “Top 25 Commercial Real Estate Brands” survey.
This comes as little surprise to RE/MAX commercial real estate professionals in the northern Illinois network, which includes a number of top commercial brokers. RE/MAX commercial associates broker deals on everything from retail strip centers and medical office buildings to multi-family apartments and industrial warehouses. There is also a strong contingent of real estate agents who specialize in commercial real estate leasing.
The National Real Estate Investor “Top 25 Commercial Brokerage Networks” survey is based solely on performance. The magazine asked brokers to provide the total dollar value of leasing transactions and investment sales globally in 2011. The totals were combined to determine a company’s ranking. This marks the second year in a row that RE/MAX Commercial has made National Real Estate Investor’s list.
The Lipsey survey is based on the commercial real estate industry’s perceptions of leading brands. More than 50,000 U.S. and international professionals participated in the company’s 2012 survey. These professionals included property owners, investors, lenders, occupiers, brokers and property managers.
It’s not difficult to see why Lipsey included RE/MAX in its list. The global RE/MAX commercial network has expanded into 45 countries with about 3,000 commercial practitioners and more than 380 offices and divisions combined.
“We’re honored to be named among the elite and most successful commercial networks,” said Mike Reagan, RE/MAX senior vice president of business alliances. “RE/MAX Commercial is taking an aggressive stance in this improving market, and our offices and agents are building on RE/MAX brand recognition, using their expertise and the resources available to them through the RE/MAX network to serve their customers.”
RE/MAX Commercial, a division of the Denver-based, RE/MAX LLC, has a global network of commercial practitioners who annually close billions of dollars in property sales and leasing transactions. The RE/MAX Northern Illinois real estate network, headquartered in Elgin, Ill., is part of RE/MAX LLC and includes an outstanding roster of experienced commercial real estate professionals. The knowledge, training and performance of these agents exemplify the high standards of RE/MAX Commercial.
