The company’s bold marketing strategy has also proven popular with consumers. CENTURY 21 maintained its lead in brand awareness among consumers presented with a list of real estate organizations, a position it has held since 1999. In a study conducted by global market research firm Millward Brown, the CENTURY 21 brand achieved 96 percent total brand awareness among consumers in the market to buy or sell a home in the past two years or in the next two years. In addition, consumers identified the CENTURY 21 brand as the “most respected in the industry.”
“Our continued leadership in this brand study is a testament to our bold marketing initiatives, keeping our agents top of mind with homebuyers and sellers,” says Rick Davidson, President and CEO, Century 21 Real Estate LLC. “The fact that CENTURY 21 was identified by consumers as the most respected real estate brand in the study is due to the hard work and dedication of our sales professionals.”
As the housing market continued to strengthen, CENTURY 21 maintained its momentum by advertising again in the big game. Super Bowl XLVII did not disappoint, reaching a total audience of 164.1 million viewers, making it the most-viewed show in U.S. television history, according to The Nielsen Company.
