RE/MAX named leading global franchise by Entrepreneur magazine

For the second consecutive year, RE/MAX has received the highest global ranking among real estate franchises by Entrepreneur magazine.

Appearing in the October edition, Entrepreneur’s annual global rankings of U.S.-based franchises placed RE/MAX highest among real estate brokerage franchises for 2014, and 39th overall. 7-Eleven and Pizza Hut headed up the list.

“The Entrepreneur ranking demonstrates the strength of the RE/MAX brand within the real estate industry and around the world,” said RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly. “We continue to expand because our business model succeeds in diverse markets. That’s why we have the largest global reach of any real estate company.” To be considered for the global rating, franchises had to be ranked among Entrepreneur’s 2014 Franchise 500, based on “quantifiable criteria such as system size, growth and financial strength and stability,” according to the magazine’s methodology. The global rankings were derived from adjusting the Franchise 500 scores “to give extra weight to international size and growth.”

Earlier this year, RE/MAX was the highest-ranked real estate brokerage in the Franchise 500 and was alter rated highest among real estate franchises on both Entrepreneur’s fastest-growing list and its low-cost list.

This year, RE/MAX is celebrating its 41st anniversary and continues to be recognized as an industry innovator. Just this month, RE/MAX was also named the leading real estate organization in the 2014 Franchise Times Top 200 for the sixth consecutive year and was the only real estate company to be included in the 2013 Top 50 Franchises for Minorities as complied by the National Minority Franchising Initiative.
