REAL Trends Canadian 250 Shows RE/MAX is Most Productive

Denver, CO – May 10, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — RE/MAX continued to outperform all competitors in the REAL Trends Canadian 250 as it has every year since the annual survey’s debut in 2010. Based on 2012 production numbers, RE/MAX placed 159 brokerages in the top 250, the closest competitor qualified only 25. RE/MAX also led all franchises in transaction ends per agent.

“There is no denying that consumers prefer RE/MAX agents above those at our competitors,” said Dave Liniger, Chairman and Co-Founder, RE/MAX LLC. “In Canada, RE/MAX agents have outsold the competition every year since 1987. That’s because RE/MAX agents are experienced professionals who know how to provide a high level of customer service.”

REAL Trends Canadian 250 highlights:

· RE/MAX agents averaged 16.7 transaction ends per agent, while all other agents in the survey averaged 9.3.

· RE/MAX agents closed 60% of the 485,000 transaction ends in the survey, and 56% of the $181 billion sales volume.

· Among the top 25 brokerages in ends per agent, 24 were RE/MAX.

· For RE/MAX agents, the average transaction ends per agent increased more than 6% from 2011.

RE/MAX first began franchise operations in Canada in 1977 and now has nearly 19,000 Sales Associates working in more than 750 offices.

In the U.S., RE/MAX agents also ranked as the most productive real estate professionals. Released earlier this month, the 2013 REAL Trends 500 showed that more RE/MAX brokerages met the survey’s competitive qualifications than brokerages with any other competitor.

The survey showed that U.S. RE/MAX sales associates averaged 17.1 transaction sides in 2012. That figure was more than twice as high as the 7.9 average of all competing agents in the survey. RE/MAX also placed 40 brokerages in the top 50, when ranked by per-agent transaction sides – one of the most meaningful measures of productivity.
