At the end of the second quarter of this year, the RE/MAX network total agent count reached an all-time quarterly high of 123,082 associates. With a growing presence in more than 100 countries and territories, no other real estate brand matches the RE/MAX worldwide footprint.
To give you some perspective, based on the corporate sites of the top franchises, here are approximate agents counts:
Keller Williams: 186,000
CENTURY 21: 122,000
Coldwell Banker: 92,000
Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices: 44,000
ERA Real Estate: 40,000
Sotheby's International: 22,000
"RE/MAX announced yesterday that they had passed 123,000 agents worldwide for the first time. While the U.S. and Canada both grew, it was growth outside the United States that grew the fastest. In fact, RE/MAX now has nearly as many agents outside the United States as it has in the country. This makes them the first global real estate organization to have attained this goal. And it is likely that global growth will fuel most global brands in the years ahead as the penetration of the U.S. based residential real estate organizations overseas is far less than it is here in North America."
Steve Murray, REAL Trends Inc. President
“Setting a new record in quarter-end agent count is a rewarding achievement,” said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “Our associates worldwide sell more real estate than any other brand, as measured by residential transaction sides, and we’re thankful for their dedication to our brand.”
National surveys continue to demonstrate the high productivity of the RE/MAX network. In July, RE/MAX placed more agents than any other brand in the 2018 REAL Trends “America’s Best Real Estate Professionals” rankings. Nearly one in four agents in the survey is a RE/MAX agent. RE/MAX also had more agents ranked than any other brand in the recent 13th Annual REAL Trends “The Thousand,” released in June. RE/MAX agents have claimed the most rankings in the respected survey three out of the last four years.
RE/MAX is in more countries than any other real estate brand. From a single office that opened in 1973 in Denver, Colorado, RE/MAX has grown into a global real estate network with more than 120,000 sales associates in more than 100 countries and territories.
As one of the leading global real estate franchisors, RE/MAX, LLC is a subsidiary of RE/MAX Holdings (NYSE: RMAX) with over 120,000 agents in more than 100 countries and territories.
