For the sixth consecutive year, RE/MAX has more qualifying agents than any other real estate brand in the annual ranking of “America’s Best Real Estate Professionals” by REAL Trends + Tom Ferry. Consisting of 14,626 individual producers and team leaders, “America’s Best Real Estate Professionals” is the industry’s largest ranking of agents based on homes sold. With 2,755 qualifying RE/MAX agents, one in five participating agents are members of the global real estate franchisor’s network.
“We believe real estate buyers and sellers deserve the world-class services of outstanding agents who are skilled, driven and focused on achieving outstanding results,” said Adam Contos, CEO of RE/MAX Holdings, Inc. “Dominating the list of ‘America’s Best Real Estate Professionals’ once again with more qualifying agents than any other brand is a testament to that belief and our brand promise to the consumer.”
The REAL Trends + Tom Ferry “America’s Best Real Estate Professionals” survey ranks participating agents and teams in the United States based on 2019 residential transaction sides and sales volume. The survey is divided into 12 categories. Six categories for the type of producer are: individual producers, individuals who own their brokerage, teams who own their brokerage, and teams of three sizes: 2-5 agents, 6-10 and 11 or more. The same six categories are used to classify both transaction sides and sales volume.
The rankings were open to individual agents who closed at least 50 transaction sides, or $20 million in sales volume last year and teams who closed at least 75 transaction sides, or $30 million in sales volume.
