An Earthquake of Sorts Hit the Cincinnati Real Estate Landscape!

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.265.3004 www.LizTour.com SAL.2002007747

The real estate landscape shifted this week for the Cincinnati area as RE/MAX Unlimited merged into local firm Comey & Shepherd.  It's almost a case of the mouse swallowing the snake, as Comey & Shepherd is currently listed in Cincinnati MLS with 288 associates and RE/MAX Unlimited with 366!

Considering that Comey & Shepherd is a local brand and RE/MAX an international brand, it will be interesting to watch what transpires over the next few days and weeks!  How many agents will accept moving to Comey and Shepherd and how many will instead transfer to other available RE/MAX franchises?

Also interesting to see will be how many sellers decide which is more important to them, the franchise or the agent?

Considering how part of the "sell" for RE/MAX is the brand's wide reach, we would hate to be one of those agents having to backtrack to their clients and trying to explain why that is no longer relevant!

Personally, no way we would trade the freedom our RE/MAX office offers us to best market our seller's homes to the buying public, whether they be local or national! 


We'll see what happens for the rest!

Kristen, It's second hand hearsay, so hopefully it's not as bad as we heard regarding the short time frame.  Unfortunately, we kinda/sorta saw something like this coming, part of the reason we left.  Didn't necessarily expect them to get absorbed, but we'd heard rumors of money trouble for awhile.  Expanded too big/too fast and right into the teeth of the housing market falling out.  Perfect storm of bad timing for them.  Fortunately for us, we left long before this came around and the move has been fantastic for us!

There's a few 800 pound gorilla teams roaming our neighborhoods.  We figure 20 to 25 listings is probably about the max we could handle the way we want to without needing to start hiring help!  We've got 11 on the market now, another tomorrow, two more doing the fix up routine before hitting the market, and another interview Saturday.  Who said the market's down?  Now if the buyers would just come out of their shells!!

Liz & Bill - That is a very large number of associates. Sounds like you will handle the shake-up and weather the storm. Best of luck.

Judy, It's a pretty big shake up.  RE/MAX Unlimited was at one point the #2 brokerage in Cincinnati.  We'll keep plugging away and doing what we do and we should be fine.  Kind of highlights always having an escape plan ready if your brokerage folds!
