WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty recently announced its ranking as the number five real estate firm in New York in sales volume according to RISMedia's 27th annual Power Broker Report.
Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty reported a total sales volume of $1,649,476,687 in 2014, representing 4,831 closed residential transactions.
This year's Power Broker Report is based on responses to RISMedia's 2015 Power Broker Survey, distributed in early January. More than 1,000 real estate firms from across the country completed the Power Broker Survey, reporting a collective 3,203,736 closed residential transactions in 2014, accounting for a total $973,976,005,312 in sales volume.
Now in its 27th year, the Power Broker Report has long honored the business feats of real estate leaders -- and brokerage firms -- who continue to shape the industry. Each April, RISMedia's Real Estate magazine highlights the Top 500 Power Broker firms according to sales volume and transactions.
RISMedia President & CEO John Featherston congratulated Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty for its prestigious ranking in this year's Power Broker Report.
"The firms represented are the nation's most elite brokerage firms serving literally millions of consumers with their real estate needs," Featherston said. "2014 was a growth year for many real estate firms across the country, as low inventory created a ripe environment for home sellers and move-up buyers, and continued low interest rates and rising rents enticed more new buyers to take action. As market dynamics continue to fluctuate, today's more knowledgeable, more tech-savvy real estate consumers will look to proven real estate firms and their agents to help guide them toward the best real estate decision. Being ranked in the Power Broker Report validates Rand's reputation as a trusted resource for today's homebuyers and sellers."
RISMedia's Annual Power Broker Report ranks firms by closed transactions and sales volume for the prior year. The Top 500 rankings appear in the April issue of Real Estate magazine and online at rismedia.com . The complete ranking of all firms that meet the criteria will be available in the 2015 Power Broker Report publication, available both digitally and in print this summer.
