The much anticipated Book of Lists for 2015 will soon be published by the Puget Sound Business Journal but the results are already in for the Largest Residential Real Estate Firms in Puget Sound (ranked on residential sales volume for 2014). Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) improved its position from #10 in 2013 to #6 in 2014, according to the survey results. With $560 million in gross sales volume represented by just 111 active brokers and three branch offices in 2014, RSIR is now acknowledged among the most productive, fastest growing and largest brokerage firms in the region.
“We are proud to join our many peers amongst the largest brokerage firms in the region – congratulations to all of the companies that made the list,” said Stacy Jones, Owner of RSIR. “We are even more proud of our many fine brokers and we thank them for their tireless efforts every day. This is really their acknowledgement and we are the ones that are privileged to work alongside their success.”
Jones states she has no illusions about being the largest real estate organization in the region nor having the most brokers. Her goal is to make a meaningful difference in her broker’s business and to optimally represent the interest of their clients – one sale at a time.
“Our growth in the region has always been very organic,” says Jones. “We are always open to new business ventures and new brokers but we find the best opportunities are referred to us by our current brokers and even from brokers at other companies. We have distinguished ourselves from the pack in just five years of operation. We like being innovative and creating a new model within the industry.”
NOTE: RSIR is an independently owned and operated franchise with branch offices in downtown Seattle, Bainbridge Island, Kirkland and coming soon to Issaquah. Unlike other franchise networks surveyed, RSIR statistics do not incorporate the production from other Sotheby’s International Realty affiliates in Washington State.
