The top residential real estate brokerage in the U.S. is still NRT

The New Jersey-based brokerage, a Realogy subsidiary, has led the REAL Trends 500 list for 20 years. But NYC rival Compass is gaining quickly.

The annual list ranks brokerages and residential real estate companies by transactions. To make the cut for this year’s list, a firm had to close at least 1,899 transactions in 2017.
