RE/MAX Top 100 Teams United States Through November 2009

RE/MAX top 100 teams United States

 

I will admit right up front this post is a shameless plug that shows if you put your mind to it you can succeed in any kind of Real Estate market.

Before I ever wrote my 1st blog article which was in July of 2007, I was a pretty decent Realtor. In fact this will be the 3rd time I have made it into the Top 100 RE/MAX teams in the country.

As of the end of November my team is ranked #91 in the United States for RE/MAX. I won't know for a few months if I managed to stay in the top 100 for the entire year but it would be nice.

The other couple times I made this list of top RE/MAX agents I was ranked at #48 and #50. This was back at the hey day of the Real Estate market in the beginning of the decade.

 

By clinking the link you can see the entire list of the RE/MAX Top 100 Teams Through November 2009. My team is currently ranked as the #2 RE/MAX team in Massachusetts.

                                                                 Blogging for Real Estate exposure

The way I generate business these days is very different than before I started to blog. Almost everyone that is in the Real Estate business realizes that consumers start the home search process online.

In fact the latest statistics suggest that in many parts of the country 90% of buyers start their home search and eventually find a property by using the Internet as a tool. Gone are the days where Realtors rely on newspapers and magazines to make the phone ring.

As technology has advanced over the last decade, it was easy to see this coming. Staying ahead of the curve is always something I have attempted to do. There are probably a few Realtors who are reading this and thinking to themselves "I saw it coming too."

The Internet is changing the way many businesses operate not just Real Estate. When someone needs a good plumber, electrician, lawyer, ect and they don't have a good reference guess where they go? Hint... it is usually not the Yellow Pages anymore.  

One of the biggest common denominators for some of the best Realtors today is how well they market a clients home. Those that understand the internet and marketing in general, tend to hold their own despite the market forces.                                                                               

Picking a good Real Estate agentIn many businesses there is an 80/20 rule in place that says 80% of the of the business will be done by 20% of the people.

Did you know that in the Real Estate industry 94% of the business is done by 6% of the agents? That is just a staggering figure!! Is it any wonder why there is so much dissatisfaction amongst consumers?

On many occasions it is the consumers own fault because they assume incorrectly that all Realtors are created equal and we all do the same things to get a home sold.

This poor line of thinking is further compounded by the fact that many people will make a terrible selection by picking the Realtor that gives them the highest price for their property. In other words the Realtor that LIES to them about their homes true value. This could all be avoided if more consumers took the time to ask good Real Estate interview questions.

When you ask the right questions it is much harder to get caught with your pants down!

Getting back to my original point about how powerful a search tool the Internet has become led me to start putting some serious effort into creating a Real Estate website that would not only be found online but dominate local Real Estate searches. If you want to see what I mean just Google

  • Metrowest MA Real Estate
  • Hopkinton MA Real Estate
  • Holliston MA Real Estate

as a few quick examples. These are the type of search terms consumers will make when thinking about Real Estate in my area. In fact you will find my website and or blog on the 1st page of Google for over ten different towns in my immediate area. If a consumer is ready to talk to a Realtor right now, the search term will more than likely be something like top Hopkinton MA Realtor.

The integration of my website and blog have been tailored into a complete social media marketing strategy which I would love to explain further but this article will become endless if I do:) Facebook and Twitter are two quick examples of ways my blog and website are further disseminated beyond just the search engines.

So when you are thinking about hiring your next Realtor why not look for one that embraces the Internet? You will be glad you did!!

2009 was an outstanding year and I would like to take this moment to thank all my clients, customers, colleagues and friends who made it all possible.

I would encourage you to come over to my Massachusetts Real Estate blog where I provide informational articles pertaining to lots of relevant Real Estate topics.

Apparently you have to be a Re/Max agent to see the list Bill, it appears to be password protected.

Bill....congratulations....you and your team do a great job.....I'm confident that my blogging will work well for us, also.

Great job Bill....your dedication and hard work pays off....Jim is right...password protected?

Posted by Dennis Duvernay Broker/Owner (Hillview Realty) over 9 years ago

Good for you.  It's nice to succeed in a market where so many agents and brokers are finding it impossible to simply make a living.

At times I can only think to myself, "all that hard work is still paying off".

Then "self" gets to work and posts another blog article or edits another web page. 

Knowing where your business comes from is critical in this market.

Bill, I have no problem with you plugging your success! Not only should your potential clients know how you do things, and how well you have done, but you should take a moment to pat yourself on the back for changing in a changing market. Not only changing, but embracing, taking lemons and making lemonade. Way to go!

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) over 9 years ago

And by the way, I applaud you for your line "In other words the Realtor that LIES to them about their homes true value. This could all be avoided if more consumers took the time to ask good Real Estate interview questions."

Couldn't have said it any plainer.

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) over 9 years ago

Congratulations Bill!

Being #2 is a pretty darned good place to be. And, like that car rental company ad, I know you'll try harder to be #1 in 2010!

Continued success my friend!

Bill,

You certainly earned the ranking and your clients have benefited as a result of all your hard work. In addition to providing exemplary services to your clients, you are willing to provide tips to others in the industry through your blog. That speaks volumes about you and your business practices.

Congratulations!

Judy

Bill - This post is "right" on so many different levels that I don't even know where to begin. Incorporating the most effective marketing tools is ever-so-important. I couldn't agree more. Like you point out, gone are the days of the yellow-book to find a professional. The Internet plays a huge role and you've leveraged the heck out of it.

Your success comes as no surprise. You know which tools provide the biggest impact for YOU and for YOUR buyers and sellers.

Great post.

Jim - Thanks for point that out. I have fixed the link so the top 100 RE/MAX list is no viewable.

Judy - Thanks a bunch. I have always been willing to pay it forward as it know it will come back to you eventually:)

Kathy - There is no doubt that those who are using the internet as a marketing tool effectively are improving their business.

Marti - It sure is staggering but this is right from the NAR surveys. It is easy to see why it makes a lot of sense for consumers to interview multiple Realtors.

Eveyone else thanks for all your compliments...2009 was a great year eventhough the overall market was not so hot. I am fortunate and count my blessings everyday.

Bill- Congratulations! That is awesome! Nestor and I were with Re/Max for 4 or 5 years. ( starting to not remember:) ) I remember the awards nights. You really are doing great to be in those ranks and it was not an easy achievement either. Self promotion in a balanced way is very important to your brand. Keep it up and keep tooting your own horn:) It encourages others to try harder also. Katerina 

Posted by Katerina Gasset, Get It Done For Me Virtual Services (Get It Done For Me Virtual Services ) over 9 years ago

In my five years with three separate RE/MAX franchises, I received several awards for top ten agents and then top ten teams in the Pacific Northwest (pretty good I thought for having to compete with Seattle and Portland).

RE/MAX is a great franchise but when I was ready to branch out on my own, they were not offering any additional franchises in the Boise Idaho area.  They also wouldn't sign off on a "virtual real estate office" concept like I have developed now as an Independent Brokerage.

tooting your own horn, not really there's nothing wrong with marketing based on "earned" achievements.

i'm not saying you're wrong, but what is the source of that 6/94 statistic?

Posted by Jay Beckingham, Seniors ROCK! ( Bank of England Mortgage) over 9 years ago

Good job Bill. I can't say I'm surprised. I think you've been ahead of the innovation curve since I first read your blog last year. But that does not save you from one thing you have no control over: NY Yankees, World Series Champions. (I'd pile on the Patriots but I'm a Giants fan).

Posted by Mike Russell, Overland Park Kansas Real Estate (Mike Russell & Associates) over 9 years ago

Congratulations, that is a tough crowd to compete in to get into the Top 100. I would add that one of the reasons for the 94% of the business estimate is the evolution of mega-teams. I know one RE/MAX agent who has about 27 agents under him that all their production counts for him alone. It tends to skew the numbers, but the fact remains that many in real estate do very little. I think that is because they don't treat it like a business.
