2021 RealTrends Market Leaders

An Extension of the RealTrends 500 Brokerage Rankings

For the purposes of this portion of the RealTrends 500, we placed firms into
separate metropolitan areas so as to compare how firms are doing by market.
While we took care to locate each firm within a metropolitan area by the location
of its headquarters, we are aware that the total of their production may, in some
cases, fall outside that specific metropolitan area (as defined by the Census
Bureau). Unfortunately, real estate services firms don’t always expand in a
manner approved by this Federal agency. In some cases, we do use a combined
statistical area as defined by the Census Bureau given the footprint of operations
within various markets.

We have taken care to question every firm that had business in more than one
identified area closely, to do our very best to be sure that the business they listed
in one area didn’t truly belong in another and to be sure that their total production
from these areas did not exceed the total of the report. And as always, firms that
participated did so voluntarily.

We are aware that some firms are missing that do have submissions on the RealTrends 500.
These firms were unable to provide breakdowns in their different markets.
