For the 12th time in just over 15 years, RE/MAX has been named the top real estate franchise by Entrepreneur Magazine. The 36th Annual Entrepreneur 2014 Franchise 500® list is an annual survey by the prestigious magazine, and I'm very proud to be part of the RE/MAX brand as they celebrate this achievement.
The RE/MAX brand ranked 75 overall on the list of 500, which is one spot higher than the ranking from 2014.
"Our philosophy at RE/MAX has always been very simple," said Margaret Kelly, RE/MAX CEO. "Attract new franchisees by providing support services and competitive advantages that help them succeed. It's why we continue to grow, innovate and evolve."
In October of last year, RE/MAX was given the number 12 spot for top franchises in the Franchise Times Top 200 list.
- RE/MAX ranked #12 overall. The closest real estate franchises were ranked #28 and #45.
- RE/MAX gained two places over its standing in 2013.
- RE/MAX also ranked #2 in the "Top 10 Sales Growth" category.
- Overall, four of the top five spots in the rankings were claimed by fast food franchises, including No. 1 McDonald's, No. 3 KFC, No. 4 SUBWAY and No. 5 Burger King.
