Twenty-five RE/MAX brokerage firms operating 51 offices in northern Illinois were recognized by REAL Trends magazine in its annual analysis of the nation’s largest residential real estate firms. The REAL Trends 500 highlights the nation’s most productive residential real estate firms based on closed transaction sides and closed sales volume.
Named to the top 50 firms in the nation in terms of percentage gain in both closed transactions over the last five years and percentage gain in sales volume over that same period was RE/MAX Synergy, with offices in Flossmoor and Orland Park, Ill. Earlier this year, that brokerage opened a third office in Frankfort, Ill.
