The commercial division of RE/MAX reported exceptional growth in annual total sales and lease volume, transaction sides and number of offices in 2013 and was recently ranked one of the top commercial brands on LoopNet.

"Their remarkable achievements are a testament to the dedication, experience and professionalism they continuously demonstrate in the commercial real estate industry.

It is a continuing trend as RE/MAX Commercial grew its total volume 17.4 percent from 2011 to 2012.
The ongoing success of RE/MAX Commercial also can be seen in its growth of annual transaction sides.
