The “Top Global Franchises” list is a variation of the magazine’s annual Franchise 500® survey, the oldest and most comprehensive franchise ranking in the world. For the Global rankings, the Franchise 500 formula is adjusted to give extra weight to international size and growth. Other areas evaluated include costs and fees, franchisee support, brand strength and financial strength and stability.
In January, RE/MAX once again held the top position among real estate brands in the Franchise 500, ranking #10 overall. It marked the 14th time in 18 years that RE/MAX has been the top franchisor in the real estate category.
Entrepreneur magazine also recognised RE/MAX in its “2017 Top Fastest Growing Franchises” rankings. RE/MAX was the only real estate brokerage franchise that qualified, taking the 15th spot overall. It was the fourth consecutive year RE/MAX was included in the annual list of fast-growing brands.
RE/MAX now has over 30,000 agents outside the U.S. and Canada. In 2016, the franchisor’s agent count outside the U.S. and Canada grew 16.9 percent.
With a presence in over 100 countries and territories, the RE/MAX network’s global footprint is unmatched by any other real estate brand. Nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX, as measured by residential transaction sides, and more than 110,000 agents worldwide are a part of the RE/MAX network.
