RE/MAX, LLC was ranked the leading real estate franchise for the eighth consecutive year in the annual Franchise Times Top 200+® listing. Continued growth and a steady increase in the number of locations also pushed the global franchisor of real estate brokerages into the top 10 franchises included in the survey.
“RE/MAX continues to be the worldwide leader in real estate and the 2016 Franchise Times Top 200+ listing proves just that,” says Chris Pflueger, Vice President, Business Development, Recruiting and Retention at RE/MAX. “Our exceptional growth in sales, strategic expansion into new countries and territories around the globe, and outstanding market share greatly assists us in attracting new franchises as well as the industry’s most talented agents.”
Highlights of this year’s ranking include:
– RE/MAX ranked the No. 1 real estate franchise
– RE/MAX ranked No. 8 overall, up from No. 11 in 2015, No. 12 in 2014 and No. 14 in 2013
– Closest competitors were Keller Williams Realty at No. 22 and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at No. 52
The growth of RE/MAX sales countered the trend of the 10 largest franchised brands collectively losing system-wide sales for the first time in the history of the Franchise Times Top 200+
