HomeSmart has been ranked the No. 5 largest broker in the nation in the 2018 RISMedia Power Broker Report.

The Power Broker 1000 ranks the top-performing brokerage firms in the country. Celebrating their 30th anniversary, RISMedia released the annual survey based on the previous year’s productivity.

“Year after year, we continue to focus on improving the business systems and technology we provide our agents,” said HomeSmart International Chief Operating Officer, Wendy Forsythe. “This allows them to stay focused on providing the real estate experience today’s consumer expects. We are proud of our growing network of agents across the country and honored that HomeSmart has been once again recognized by RISMedia.”

For seven consecutive years, HomeSmart has been included in the RISMedia ranking, specifically in the survey’s top 10 real estate companies for the second year in a row. HomeSmart moved up an incredible four spots from the previous year, coming in at No. 9 in 2016.

In just one year, HomeSmart’s closed residential transactions have increased by more than 9,000, bringing their total count to 33,601 transactions, up 37.8 percent from the previous year. The brokerage increased their annual sales volume by nearly $4 billion, landing at a total of $10,369,070,559 or an increase of 49.9 percent, according to the 2018 report based on last year’s records.

“The quality of our agents and brokers allows us to continue to grow as a real estate company and surpass our previous achievements,” said Matt Widdows, HomeSmart International founder and CEO and HomeSmart brokerage owner. “It is humbling to see our company rise in the rankings, but it is also incentive to keep working to be the best brokerage we can be.”
