Global real estate franchisor, RE/MAX now counts over 100,000 agents in its network, the company has announced. Ending 2014 with 98,010 agents worldwide, RE/MAX attracted more than 2,000 agents in just the first few months of 2015 to reach this significant milestone.
“As our agent count grew over the last three years, we knew that the 100,000 threshold would be crossed very soon,” says Dave Liniger, CEO, Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder of RE/MAX, LLC. “Our agent-centric business model has attracted top producers for 42 years. It’s nice to have such large numbers, but we’re most proud of the quality agents who call RE/MAX home.”
RE/MAX agent growth picked up steam in 2015 and as of April 1 had risen 2.1 percent, after increasing 5.1 percent in all of 2014. RE/MAX continues its trend of agent growth while the National Association of REALTORS® reported February home sales at levels 4.7 percent higher than one year ago.
“In an improving market, the most productive agents will want to affiliate with a recognized brand that supports their efforts with valuable resources and innovative technology tools,” Liniger adds.
The best agents seek out organizations that can help them succeed in a competitive environment. RE/MAX provides a comprehensive training platform, RE/MAX University, that is available 24/7 on-demand anywhere in the world. RU has been recognized with numerous training and video awards.
And since 2006, RE/MAX has provided over 14 million online leads to its agents without a referral fee. Other services include a creative advertising campaign and the RE/MAX Design Center, an online marketing site where agents can create customized materials using professionally designed templates.
RE/MAX agents consistently rank among the most productive in the industry. In the United States, RE/MAX agents averaged 15.6 years of real estate experience and 16.0 transaction sides in 2014.
Selling five Master Franchises in 2014, RE/MAX reached around the world to nearly 100 countries. No other real estate brand can match this global footprint. It remains true that nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX.
