RE/MAX listed at top spot among real estate franchises globally
For the fifth consecutive year RE/MAX has been listed as the top ranking real estate brand in the highly respected and sought after Franchise Times Top 200 survey, RE/MAX Western Australia Regional Owner, Geoff Baldwin, announced today.
Rising two places in 2013 to number 14 overall and number 6 in sales growth RE/MAX shares the top twenty with icon brands such as McDonalds, Burger King, and 7 Eleven, Mr Baldwin said.
2013 marks the 40th Anniversary of the RE/MAX brand which now boasts over 90,000 agents in 92 countries.
According to RE/MAX International CEO, Margaret Kelly, throughout 2013, RE/MAX has been recognized as an industry leader in a variety of real estate surveys. RE/MAX agents averaged more transaction sides than agents with any other national brand according to the 2013 RIS Media Power Broker Report.
“To be recognized among these well respected brands is truly an honour and as we continue to celebrate 40 years of helping homebuyers and sellers achieve their dream of home ownership, this confirms the outstanding service and productivity of RE/MAX agents around the world.
“In the 2013 REAL Trends 500 survey, RE/MAX averaged more than double the transactions per agent than the Industry average and RE/MAX Associates held 98 of the 500 spots in the Wall Street Journal & REAL Trends for the most transaction sides,” Ms Kelly said.
“We are very proud to be a part of this amazing organisation and to contribute to its global success through our own focus in Western Australia”, Mr Baldwin said.
“Since my purchase of the RE/MAX rights to WA in late 2009 we have combined decades of local experience and success with the huge resources and support of RE/MAX International and we continue to grow and to increase our market share year by year.
“We have built to 15 franchises in WA and expect to open at least two more offices plus increase our salesperson number by another 15 percent in 2013”, Mr Baldwin said.
