Real estate firm RE/MAX has retained its dominance in an annual ranking of the best franchise brands.

The Franchise Times Top 200+ survey considers the brokerage network the best US-based franchise in real estate for the tenth year in a row and a top 10 franchise across all industries.

The closest competitors were Keller Williams Realty at #17 and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices at #49.

“RE/MAX and the RE/MAX network continues to outperform many of our competitors, year after year, in annual surveys and rankings," said RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos. "Our franchise model highlights the significance of the individual real estate agent and it's one of the many reasons why RE/MAX attracts some of the most talented and top performing professionals in the industry."

The Denver-headquartered firm has grown from a single office in 1973 to a network of more than 120,000 sales associates in more than 100 countries and territories.
