Who are the Top 10 Companies in Real Estate?

By

Question about top real estate companies

Everyone has their own opinion, that's for sure. And I know this is going to be very controversial, or should I say touchy topic, but here goes.

Who do you think are the top 10 biggest and best residential real estate companies in the US?

I know biggest doesn't always mean greatest, but lets look at the large companies that just happen to be really great. The following group of the "best of the biggest" was recently published by the industry's popular and respected Swanepoel Trends Report (2008 edition)

Its actually a very good list - OK so I am biased, he is my Dad - but for the first time someone actually combined all different types of residential real estate brokerage companies into one list - and that's very hard. This has never been done before. Think about it. Independent Brokerage Companies, Franchise Groups and Real Estate Networks are always ranked on separate lists as people generally find it hard to really, effectively compare these different kinds of organizations due to their unique structures.

That said, here are "The Top 10 Titans of the Real Estate Industry."  We have of course added this top 10 list to Real Estate Wiki and it can be viewed here.

So here the Titans in alphabetical order:

  1. EXIT Realty
  2. HomeServices of America
  3. Keller Williams Real Estate
  4. Leading Real Estate Companies of the World
  5. Long & Foster Companies
  6. NRT, Inc.
  7. Prudential Real Estate
  8. Realogy - Realogy owns Coldwell Banker, Century 21, ERA Real Estate, Sotheby's Real Estate, Better Homes & Gardens and others.
  9. RE/MAX International
  10. Weichert Realtors

Your turn.

Who would you have added to the list? Who would you bump down or up? Remember for every additional company you provide you have to tell me which one you would leave off.

OK Rainers, let's do it.

A very interesting list, indeed!     Since all of them are individual franchises, except Realogy, maybe that one should be split out to which of its franchises would be on the top ten list????

Aha, but they are not all franchises. Thats the point. Long and Foster is not. Leading Real Estate Companies of the World is not. Homeservices isn't either.

There are probably 5 distinctly different business structures. Thats why it is so hard to compare and thats what make the list so interesting.

Great list!!  

Outside the box!!

This list exceeded the bounds of critieria like - most closings for the year, largest sales volumes for the year, most number of agents...etc.  

When I researched each company on the list I got a better picture of the workings of the industry - what's out there relating to opportunites, areas of the country,  who the players are..etc.

 

THANKS.
