Power Broker Report Shows RE/MAX Sales Volume Up 26% DENVER, CO – RE/MAX agents continue to outperform all competitors, ranking as the most productive among the elite national real estate franchises. According to preliminary results from the 2014 RISMedia Power Broker Report Top 500, the productivity of RE/MAX agents was more than double the average of agents at competing brokerages. RE/MAX agents on average not only closed more transaction sides, but also claimed a sales volume 69% higher than the average of all competing agents in the Report. “There are some real estate companies with more offices and agents in the Power Broker Report,” said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly. “But the real test for any homebuyer or seller is whether their agent gets the job done. And, year after year, the numbers show that RE/MAX agents are the most productive among the national brands.” According to the Report, in 2013, RE/MAX agents averaged $4.3 million in sales volume - a 26% increase over 2012, while competing agents averaged just $2.5 million. RE/MAX agents also averaged 17.5 transaction sides each – an increase of 4.3% over their 2012 performance. The average for all other agents in the report was just 8.4 sides.
