RRA Named as Top Agency by Real Trends 500 Survey and RIS Media5/7/2016
RE/MAX Realty Affiliates (RRA), one of the most successful real estate companies in northern Nevada, ranks among the 50 most productive brokerages in the United States, based on home sales data in the prestigious 2016 REAL Trends 500 survey. RRA placed 47 with an average 20.2 transaction sides per agent.
One of the most widely followed reports in real estate, the REAL Trends 500 ranks the largest U.S. brokerages in the country by total residential transaction sides with a minimum of 500 sides needed to qualify for participation. RRA, with offices in Reno, Gardnerville and Carson City, placed 395 in units and 355 in volume on the report.
This success is not limited to RRA, as RE/MAX agents rank among the most productive in the United States. Of the total 1,605 brokerages participating in the REAL Trends 500, one third, or 530, were affiliated with RE/MAX. The nearest competitor placed 386. Data from the survey show that RE/MAX agents averaged 17.3 home sales, more than double the 7.9 average of all other agents and led all national franchises.
“The numbers are a tribute to the professionalism and dedication of each and every one of our agents and offices,” said Amy Lessinger RRA broker/owner of the Reno office. “Our agents have never been satisfied with just doing what’s expected. They’re always going above and beyond.”
RE/MAX Realty Affiliates had a similar showing in the newly released, RISMedia Power Broker Report. The RRA offices in Reno, Gardnerville and Carson City ranked 358 for sales volume among other real estate brokers across the United States. This year’s Power Broker Report is based on responses to RISMedia’s 2016 Power Broker Survey, distributed in early January. More than 1,600 real estate firms from across the country completed the Power Broker Survey, with the top 1,000 reporting a collective 3,406,863 closed residential transactions in 2015, accounting for more than $1.1 trillion in sales volume.
With more than 100 agents in Reno, Carson City and Gardnerville, RE/MAX Realty Affiliates is also Northern Nevada’s highest producing real estate office in per agent productivity on average, as recognized by Northern Nevada Regional Multiple Listing Service.
“Year after year, we see recognition that show our agents performing at a very high level,” said John Fisher, broker/owner of the Gardnerville & Carson City Offices. “With the significant number of sales our agents complete, it’s apparent that consumers understand the experience of a professional agent makes a huge difference in buying and selling real estate.”
