As I attempt to hold back my excitement and continue pressing forward with the writing of this post - I cannot help but be elated at the numbers depicted on the following chart.  As you can see - REMAX is First - Followed by Coldwell Banker - Then ERA Realtors.

An agent can only be as good as the company they stand behind and are able to grow within.  That is why we have embraced the REMAX Brand.

If you are working with a Realtor that is working with one of these other Real Estate companies - Don't let this sway you - Please remain loyal.  Remember, All things being equal, Friends would rather do business with friends...  All things not being so equal - Friends would still rather do business with Friends.  ( I went off on a Jeffrey Gitomer Rant..  Sorry) - Enjoy the numbers and let us know if we can help you.

I have placed the enclosed letter from Margaret Kelly to all the Agents - Thanks Margaret - BE Safe...

REMAX of Santa Clarita

RE/MAX Colleague,

Who’s the best in real estate? Based on recently released results, it’s you, the RE/MAX agent.

Year-end sales data for 2010 are in: For the 13th consecutive year, RE/MAX sold more real estate than any competitor.

And RE/MAX agents average more transaction sides than agents with any other national brand ... in most cases twice as many.

Congratulations on being a part of the world’s most productive real estate sales force.

This information can be very helpful with listing presentations, recruiting and other promotions.  So, I’d like to provide you with the following valuable resources.

Video: I use the results to explain why in today's market it's more important than ever to work with experienced, productive agents.

RE/MAX Versus the Industry Report: See the actual report that shows how the national brands compared in 2010. This creative one-page document will impress your clients and your competition.

Press Release: Consumer-focused announcement can support your social media messaging.

Communications Resource: Talking points and additional promotional tools help you spread the word.

Some networks brag about the sheer number of agents they have. But we’re proud, again, to be #1 in the productivity measurements that really count.

That's why we can continue to say: Nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX.

RE/MAX Chief Executive Officer
