Which is the most Recognizable Real Estate Franchise brand in the nation? ---------------------------------------------------VOTE NOW

By
Real Estate Services with New York Times Bestselling Author & International Speaker

Six months ago I wrote a blog post about The Changing Face of Real Estate Franchise Brands that garnished a lot of attention because I dared to compare and even more list in order the top 10 franchise brands in my opinion.

Then last month my blog post Merge Creates One of the Largest Real Estate Franchises in Northern America exploded with over 155 comments as the debate continued about brands when a significant number of agents had never even heard of the brands mentioned.

Well now I have created an opportunity to see what the industry really thinks.

Real Estate Franchises

Starting today and until midnight on Friday, December 11th, everyone has the opportunity to grade the top 35 real estate franchise brands on a scale on 0 – 5; starting from “Never heard of the brand” all the way up to “Excellent brand.”

Base your vote on your experience of the brands visibility, awareness and impact in your local market.

There have been various studies reporting who is the largest, has the most agents, does the most transactions, etc. Now we will determine the Top 10 real estate franchises as voted by the industry itself.

Please help get the word out to as many agents as we can so that we can have a fair and representative vote. Many thanks. Results will be announced on December 15th and full details published in the 2010 Swanepoel TRENDS Report due February 2010.

 

Feel free to leave a comment below on who you think is the #1 franchise brand in your area after you have voted.

Voting is now closed.

11,355 people voted casting just over 390,000 votes. VERY IMPRESSIVE.

Thank you to all who participated. Irrespective the outcome, the results reflect the opinions of a very significant segment of the real estate industry and is probably the largest survey of its kind ever undertaken in the real estate brokerage industry.

It is an impressive example of the power of social media and email. All votes will now be scrutinized for irregularities and then tabulated into meaningful lists. Results will be posted on www.RETrends.com on Tuesday December 15th.

Thank you.

Hi, Stefan.  Interesting survey.  I hear a lot about KW, ironic though that the only one we have in my area closed about four years ago.  Prudential is a young real estate franchise, yet it's at #5...cool.  Thanks for the info!

There are so many real estate franchises, it's not surprising there isn't a clear cut #1. It's very hard to seperate yourself amongst the crowd. I am trying to get into the franchise business, it's a very tough decision. I checked out this franchise directory and was overwhelmed with the options available.
