Real Living: Fastest Growing Real Estate Brand in the U.S.!

According to the National Association Realtors (REALTOR Magazine July/August 2011) Franchise Report based on net office growth 2011 over 2009.


According to the National Association of Realtors Real Living has been crowned the fastest growing real estate brand.

While many residential real estate brokerages have been closing offices and losing agents, the Real Living brand stands out as an extreme example of success and progress. Since 2009 Real Living has opened 265 new offices. We now have 425 real estate offices and 10,000 agents through out the country.

“In an industry as fiercely competitive, complex and challenging as real estate, being the nation’s fastest-growing brand is a major achievement, and all of us at Real Living are extremely proud of this milestone,” Real Living President Harley E. Rouda, Jr., said.

Real Living’s national growth was set in motion in November, 2009 when it was acquired by Brookfield Residential Property Services, a subsidiary of Brookfield Asset Management. At that time, the company made its growth plans known, saying Real Living is, “about to get bigger — much bigger”. Brookfield Residential Property Services then merged Real Living with GMAC Real Estate, a company it purchased the previous year.

Since then, Real Living has welcomed hundreds of respected, market-leading real estate firms into its family of franchisees. Comprising large, medium and small firms, spanning virtually all across the United States.

“We deliver on our unique promise to help our brokers and agents every way we possibly can, from providing them with cutting-edge technology that streamlines day-to-day tasks, to training them in Premier Service®, the industry’s most comprehensive customer-service program, bar none,” Rouda explained.

Through Premier Service, Real Living agents put in writing, up front, the comprehensive services they will perform on customers’ behalf. Once transactions are completed, every customer is asked to work with a third-party firm on a detailed questionnaire to honestly assess their experiences with Real Living. The company has maintained an industry-leading 96 percent customer satisfaction rating.
