- RE/MAX ranked #15 overall, up from #17 in 2016 and #45 in 2015
Entrepreneur magazine's "Fastest Growing" list is a spin-off of the magazine's annual "Franchise 500" survey, the oldest and most comprehensive franchise ranking in the world. The fastest-growing rankings are based on the number of new franchise units added in the U.S. and Canada from July 2015 to July 2016.
In the U.S., RE/MAX experienced the highest percentage of franchise sales growth in the Carolinas, New York and Florida regions in 2016.
Earlier this year, RE/MAX was named as the top real estate franchise and ranked in the top 10 of the prestigious "Franchise 500" survey. Companies are chosen for the list based on multiple criteria, including financial strength, stability, size and growth rate.
With a presence in over 100 countries and territories, the RE/MAX network's global footprint is unmatched by any other real estate brand. Internationally, RE/MAX experienced the strongest franchise sales growth in Latin America and Europe last year. Increased franchise sales contributed to the global franchisor's total agent count, which grew by 7.4 percent year-over-year, as of the third quarter in 2016.
