Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC recently announced it won Franchise Business Review’s Best in Category for Real Estate Franchisee Satisfaction award for the sixth year in a row.
The Best in Category award measures franchisee satisfaction with their franchisors and is part of the 8th annual Franchisee Satisfaction Awards presented by Franchise Business Review. In addition to its real estate ranking, the brand also came in second overall among the Top 50 “Systems with 250 or more units,” which is a ranking of all franchise systems with more than 200 units across all categories.
“This award is a reflection of our commitment to providing the highest possible quality service to our valued network members, and we are humbled and honored to have received this distinction for the sixth year in a row,” says Philip White, president and chief executive officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “We believe our duty is to serve our network and to offer them the tools and resources they need to help them succeed. The reason the Franchise Business Review recognition is so rewarding is because it is measured by input from our most important asset: our franchisees.”
Franchise Business Review surveyed more than 26,000 franchisees from more than 350 leading systems for the 8th annual Franchisee Satisfaction Awards. Franchises were evaluated in five areas: training and support, franchise system, franchisor/franchisee relations, financial opportunity and overall satisfaction. Additionally, demographic and lifestyle questions gave a 360-degree view of the franchise ownership experience. Franchise Business Review is a national franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction and franchise buyer experiences.

“It’s great to see the Sotheby’s International Realty brand top our Real Estate list once again this year,” says Franchise Business Review President Michelle Rowan. “As the real estate and housing markets bounce back, franchises within the space need to stay top of mind with franchise buyers and consumers. The brand continues to seek ways to drive franchisee satisfaction and profitability–and their hard work shows here.”
