REAL Trends 500: RE/MAX Agents Outproduce Competition for 10th Straight Year

Prestigious industry survey reveals RE/MAX agents averaged 15.6 transaction sides, while agents with all other brands averaged 7.0.

At a time when a real estate agent’s experience and ability to navigate tough terrain have never been more important, a new industry report confirms that RE/MAX agents are far more productive than the norm.

According to the 2020 REAL Trends 500 survey, a widely followed ranking of large U.S. real estate brokerages, RE/MAX agents averaged twice as many transaction sides as competing agents – for the 10th consecutive year. Additionally, RE/MAX once again had the most brokerages qualify for the rankings. Of the 1,711 participating brokerages that qualified for the survey, 31% were affiliated with RE/MAX.

Other highlights from the survey include: When all brokerages in the survey are ranked by sides per agent, 86 of the top 100 are RE/MAX firms. Their agents averaged 30 home sales each in 2019.  In addition to leading the field in per-agent transaction sides, RE/MAX agents also averaged $4.5 million in sales volume, 72% higher than the $2.6 million average of all other agents in the survey.View the 2020 REAL Trends 500 Report.
