Network Shines on REAL Trends' Per-Agent Lists Select Language▼ Posted 5/11/11 A new twist in the annual Real Trends 500 report – released this week – reaffirms the industry-leading productivity of RE/MAX brokerages and Sales Associates. For the first time, the report ranks the Top 25 brokerages by Transaction Sides Per Agent. And RE/MAX holds 21 of the 25 spots, including all of the top four, nine of the top 10, and 18 of the top 20. Top 25 Brokerages by Closed Transaction Sides Per Associate: 1. RE/MAX Leading Edge, Dearborn Heights, MI: 86.4 2. RE/MAX Acclaim, Roseville, MI: 59.9 3. RE/MAX Team 2000, Dearborn, MI: 56.0 4. RE/MAX 100 Riverside, Platinum and Masters, Palm Beach Gardens, FL: 35.8 5. Coldwell Banker Rick Canup, Realtors, Lubbock, TX: 32.3 6. RE/MAX Professionals, Lawton, OK: 32.1 7.

Real Living Advanced Realty, Birmingham, AL: 22.7 RE/MAX also captures eight spots in a second new feature – Top 25 in Closed Sales Volume Per Associate. That showing is especially strong given the nature of the list – other than RE/MAX, it's filled primarily with high-end independent or regional firms; only two other national franchise brokerages qualified – one Sotheby's and one Coldwell Banker. The RE/MAX representatives on the Top 25 Closed Sales Volume Per Associate rankings: 6. RE/MAX of Boulder, Boulder CO: $6,420,623 14. RE/MAX Properties West, St. Louis, CO: $5,139,152 15.

RE/MAX Associates, San Diego, CA: $4,854,905 20. RE/MAX Results, South Jordan, UT: 4,615,341 25. RE/MAX Professionals, Lawton, OK: $4,300,208 Two single-office RE/MAX firms are No. 1 when production is measured by office. RE/MAX of Reading in Wyomissing, PA, (2,756 sides) is one of nine RE/MAX brokerages on the Closed Transaction Sides Per Office list, and RE/MAX of Boulder in Boulder, CO, ($55.8 million) is one of five on the Closed Sales Volume Per Office list. Among overall Top 500 rankings by transaction sides (the main qualifier for the report), 111 RE/MAX brokerages placed on the list, with the cutoff at 961 sides. Five RE/MAX firms exceeded 7,000 transactions, 33 closed more than 2,000, and 104 offices topped 1,000. The 7,000-side brokerages: • RE/MAX Results, Eden Prairie, MN: 10,970 sides • RE/MAX Alliance, Arvada, CO: 8,880 sides • RE/MAX Gold, Rancho Cordova, CA: 7,982 sides • RE/MAX Equity Group, Portland, OR: 7,125 sides • RE/MAX Allegiance, Fairfax, VA: 7,014 sides In additional to the 111 brokerages in the Top 500, another 90 RE/MAX firms closed more than 500 sides each, qualifying as "Up and Comers." RE/MAX vs. the Industry Additional information from the Real Trends 500 will be released early next month, and further analysis will reveal other important details about per-agent production. The findings will likely resemble those in the RE/MAX Versus the Industry Report, a nationwide study confirming that RE/MAX led all national franchises in total transaction sides (754,333) and transaction sides per agent (13.1) last year. That per-agent productivity easily surpassed Coldwell Banker (7.1 sides per agent) and ERA (6.3), Prudential (6.2), and more than doubled Century 21 (5.4), Keller Williams (5.1), Sotheby's (3.9) and Better Homes and Gardens (3.5). A "RE/MAX Versus the Industry Resource PDF" outlines several tools related to that report, which was unveiled in March.
