For the second consecutive year, HomeServices of America reigns atop the Real Trends 500, an annual ranking of the top real estate brokerages in terms of transaction sides.
HomeServices of America, with 329,680 transactions, slightly edged out the recently renamed Realogy Brokerage Group, with 325,652 transactions. However, the latter finished with a higher total closed sales volume, with $170 billion in sales, compared to HomeServices of America’s $132.3 billion.
Despite the two holding their top spots on the leader board, both actually closed fewer transactions than the prior year. In fact, of the 1,559 companies that were analyzed, only 666 were flat or made gains, while the other 893 closed fewer transactions.
“Not in my almost 44 years now, have I seen so many kinds of new tough competitors all at the same time,” Real Trends President Steve Murray told Inman.
Both of the top two firms stood in a tier of their own, in terms of transaction sides, finishing with more than double the transactions of third-place eXp Realty, which had an impressive 2019. EXp Realty finished with 130,627 transactions, nearly double the 73,458 transactions it closed in 2018.
Compass once again made massive gains in the sales volume department, surpassing the $90 billion in sales mark — good for third in the country by that metric — after closing slightly more than $45 billion last year.
