Growth among nation’s 20 largest real estate companies traced back to acquisition activity and franchise expansion

New T3 Sixty data shows notable gains from Peerage Realty Partners, United Real Estate, At World Properties and eXp Realty

T3 Sixty announces rankings of the nation’s 20 largest residential real estate enterprise companies, franchise brands and franchisees in its 2023 Corporations release of the Real Estate Almanac. New data from the industry’s leading management consulting and analytics firm reveals few changes in overall rankings from 2022, and a significant downturn in year-over-year sales volume for nearly all companies on the list.

“The financials and data reported by the nations’ largest real estate companies reflects the market’s big downshift in 2022, which was driven by increased interest rates and sustained low inventory,” said Paul Hagey, senior vice president of T3 Data, T3 Sixty’s research and analysis division. “The few companies that were able to grow their sales volume in 2022 did so through ambitious acquisition of large, existing firms or strategic franchise expansion efforts.”

The 2023 Corporations release, which is the fourth section of the Real Estate Almanac, ranks the US’s 20 largest real estate enterprise companies (accounting for all company-owned brokerages and franchises operations under one entity), franchise brands and franchisees by sales volume, transaction sides and overall agent count, as well as public companies by their key details and financials.

Enterprise 20 – Real Estate’s Largest Companies

Among the nation’s 20 largest enterprise companies by sales volume, there were few changes from the 2022 rankings. Most notably, Redfin fell five spots, from No. 7 to No. 12, and EXIT Realty (17) and Realty Executives (18) each moved down three positions.

Peerage Realty Partners, which acquired controlling stakes in two large Sotheby’s affiliates in 2022, grew their sales volume by 79.3% in 2022 and entered the rankings for the first time, at No. 15. Also counteracting the market with positive sales volume growth were United Real Estate (30.7% sales volume growth), At World Properties (21.4%) eXp Realty (20.2%), and Hanna Holdings (2.7%).

Of the 20 largest franchise brands, eighteen showed a decrease in sales volume in 2022, with only United Real Estate (30.7% growth) and @properties (0.6% growth) bucking the downward trend.
