Chicago-based Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) is the largest network of locally-branded firms, with nearly 700 companies, 5,500 offices and 170,000 associates in 38 countries. Six of the top 10 U.S. real estate firms are LeadingRE affiliates, and the network produced nearly $370 billion in annual home sales in 2007, more than any real estate franchise brand. In addition, 44% of the country’s top 88 markets have a LeadingRE firm – a local brand – as the leader in terms of #1 market share.
The network’s mission is to serve as a multi-dimensional business resource to premier independent real estate firms, focusing on the Internet (RELOHomeSearch.com), education (LeadingRE Institute and Inside.LeadingRE.com), luxury marketing (Luxury Portfolio Fine Property CollectionTM), corporate relocation (RELO Direct®, Inc.), and supplier alliances (Leading Real Estate Solutions). Membership is by invitation based on performance and market criteria.
