CENTURY 21 Affiliated sold an impressive number of homes in 2013 earning the brokerage multiple designations this year. They are named the #1 CENTURY 21 Franchise in the world and are now being honored as being the Top 500 Power Broker 2014.
RisMedia takes the Top 500 Real Estate companies across all brands in the U.S and asks them to reflect on the successes and challenges within their markets in the previous year. Now in it's 26th year, the Power Broker Survey, has long honored the incredible business feats of remarkable real estate leaders and brokerage firms who continue to shape our industry. Century 21 Affiliated ranked in the top 50 in Real Estate transactions and top 100 in sales across the United States. The 2014 Power Broker Report shows Real Estate Professionals are pleased with the 2013 real estate market’s second solid year of recovery. In 2013, brokers across the country paid witness to many key indicators of the housing market’s gradual return to normal, heading toward a balance that we have not seen in previous years.
Century 21 Affiliated President, Dan Kruse, discusses the tremendous growth they saw in 2013, “In 2013, we kept our leadership team focused on organic recruiting efforts throughout the year. As a result Century 21 Affiliated added more than 400 agents and increased year-over year in commission dollars by 90 percent in 2013. I also see 2014 being a big year for new agents entering the market. This new crop of agents might be one of the most exciting parts of 2014, we’re seeing a new level of professionalism and enthusiasm, as these agents have not been spoiled with influence of the last few years.” Kruse also mentions the difficulties sought by the Affiliated team with the lack of housing inventory to show their buyers. The Affiliated team is looking to educate their clients in 2014 to solve those inventory dilemmas.
Century 21 Affiliated continues a positive growth pattern in the start of 2014. Adding 39 agents just this March! Of the 39 agents, 13 are experienced agents and 7 are students that completed their pre-license training, passed their test, and joined with C21 Affiliated! This has been an exciting year for Century 21 Affiliated and the team looks forward to the opportunities in the coming year!
