Where does CRR rank in the MLS?

Have you ever wondered how Charles Rutenberg Realty compares to all the other firms in the MLS?

Did you know there are over 6,000 firms in the MLS? Granted many are small or one person offices but the 300th ranked firm did around $25 million in sales so far this year.

In the rankings of companies, Charles Rutenberg Realty is 12th. Only 11 other companies in the entire Chicagoland area have done more transactions than we have. And, as an individual office we rank 7th. Only @properties, Coldwell Banker and Jameson Southeby’s have offices with more transactions. There is no ReMax office that does more transactions than Charles Rutenberg Realty!
Hopefully you find this as exciting as I do. It can be an excellent piece of information to share the next time a client asks you “Who is Charles Rutenberg Realty?”  Little do they know the powerful marketing resources you will be bringing to their property.
