These brokerage firms and leaders are changing the game in real estate.  Every year, RealTrends chooses GameChangers based on five-year, transaction side percentage data from the RealTrends Verified 500. This year, we chose 18 brokerage firms that grew their businesses at astronomical rates.

United Real Estate topped the charts with 727% growth. According to United Real Estate Holding’s CEO Dan Duffy, “United’s growth was both organic and strategic M&A activity with each representing approximately 50% of the total growth during the period. With a contracted market in 2023 and continuing into 2024, all of United’s growth is from organic growth on a highly advantaged business model which because of deep investments United can deliver equal or superior programs to its affiliated agents while offering the best agent compensation plans.”

Next on the list is HomeSmart Real Estate Momentum with 271% growth in transaction side percentage between 2019 and 2023. According to Marianne Drenik, who co-owns the brokerage with Greg Pernus, the firm’s growth is 100% organic. “Our very best AHA moment was when we witnessed the change in our agents’ lives. Their businesses are able to grow and expand in a positive and collaborate environment where they are treated equally.”
