ATLANTA, Georgia – RE/MAX Greater Atlanta has been named the top broker in Georgia for transactions and sales volume by a leading Real Estate Industry survey released yesterday.
The RISMedia 2010 Power Broker Survey, which ranks the performance of the top 300 Real Estate brokerages in the US, ranks RE/MAX Greater Atlanta as the most successful in Georgia and the 40th most successful in the United States in 2009.
Raymond Morris and Mary Anne Frolik, Owners of RE/MAX Greater Atlanta – “We are extremely proud of our agents and management team for achieving this level of success during a very difficult year.”
Saundra Gotfredson, Vice President & Regional Director of RE/MAX of Georgia said: “We are all very proud of Raymond, Mary Anne and their team for all their hard work in 2009 and being recognized as the top Broker in Georgia in both completed transactions and sales volume. It is a well deserved honor for them.”
RE/MAX had a total of 69 brokerages on the list, far outdistancing Keller Williams (47), Coldwell Banker (36), Prudential (30), Century 21 (23) and any other competitor.
Additionally, the 13,505 RE/MAX Associates within those brokerages closed 203,392 transaction sides last year, an average of 15.1 each. That figure easily eclipses the per-agent production of the other major franchises – Coldwell Banker agents averaged 10.1; Century 21 agents averaged 7.9; and Keller Williams and Prudential agents averaged 5.9. It was 18% better than the 2008 average.
The RE/MAX transaction total was more than 50,000 higher than any competitor’s, except for NRT, whose single brokerage has 46,000 agents. It had more sides, but averaged just six per agent.
All told, the RE/MAX brokerages in the Top 300 closed $44.4 billion in sales volume last year, representing a per-Associate average of $3.06 million.
