RE/MAX continues to grow in Broward county and southeast Florida with the addition of six RE/MAX offices, bringing the total RE/MAX office count to 40 with nearly 800 professional RE/MAX associates helping homebuyers and sellers every day.
Fort Lauderdale area RE/MAX associates are also the most productive and continue to lead all competitors claiming a 9.4% market share, or nearly 10% of all closed transactions in the Fort Lauderdale area. In addition to the office openings in Broward County, franchise sales for the entire RE/MAX organization are up 11.2% from the same period in 2009.
“Our offices and sales associates continue to train, work hard and adapt to the changing market and we couldn’t be more pleased with the RE/MAX presence and performance in Broward County,” said Adam Contos, Vice President and Regional Director of the RE/MAX Florida Region.
Many of the local offices chose to affiliate with RE/MAX because the franchising company provides the latest technology and training for its agents, training that is specifically designed to meet the demands of today’s marketplace.
A number of RE/MAX offices, Broker/Owners and associates in the Florida region were named to national lists of top-producing offices and agents for their outstanding production in 2009. In the 2010 REAL Trends 500 survey, RE/MAX associates in the U.S. averaged an impressive 14.4 transaction sides per agent which is 46% higher than the next closest competitor.
Not only are RE/MAX associates focused on business, but they strive to give back to the communities in which they live and work. RE/MAX Florida offices and associates consistently rank as top contributors to Children’s Miracle Network in the entire RE/MAX network, which has donated over $100 million to the charity.
“There are many more opportunities in Florida for RE/MAX offices and sales associates to show why they’re the best in the business and there’s no doubt we’ll be announcing more great news in the near future as our offices continue to grow,” said Contos.
With exceptional marketing promotions resources, lead generation tools, global branding and a network of nearly 100,000 agents, RE/MAX associates do more business than any other franchise real estate company in the world.
