For the 12th straight year, RE/MAX ranks as the No. 1 real estate franchise brand in the annual Franchise Times Top 200 list, based on global sales. The honor reinforces the enduring quality behind the RE/MAX brand name.
Coming in at No. 16, RE/MAX joins household names such as McDonald’s, 7-Eleven and Taco Bell at the top of the widely respected list.
“This recognition reflects the quality of RE/MAX brokers and agents, who are delivering excellent consumer experiences to real estate buyers and sellers every single day,” says RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. “It also confirms the ongoing appeal of our brand and network. Entrepreneurs are buying RE/MAX franchises all over the world right now in very unusual circumstances – it’s a testament to the foundation laid by nearly 50 years of building the RE/MAX brand and achieving significant brand awareness and visibility.”
