1. Keller Williams Realty, Inc.

Keller Williams Realty is huge real estate franchise that operates in more than 700 worldwide markets. Founded more than 35 years ago in Austin, Texas, the company has more agents than any other real estate franchise in North America. Many attribute this success to its commission sharing strategy of a 70/30 split for agents.

When you choose a Keller Williams agent, you know you’ll have a company with a strong history behind you. They are the world's largest real estate franchise by agent count, and have more than 1,000 offices and 180,000 associates. The franchise is also number one in units and sales volume in the United States. In recent years, they’ve been more and more technology-driven.

2. Coldwell Banker

Coldwell Banker has been around for more than 110 years and was founded in San Francisco. They are known for the thorough training of their agents and have more than 3,000 offices in almost 50 countries, more than 200 of which serve the Maryland area. Coldwell Banker is considered by some to be the original real estate start-up and changed the way people bought and sold real estate in the United States.

Coldwell Banker provides for its agents to specialize in certain areas like rental markets, new construction, luxury homes or vacation properties, as well as traditional residential real estate.

3. Long & Foster Real Estate Inc.

While they may not have a strong nationwide presence, Long & Foster Real Estate Inc is one of the larger real estate offices in the Greater Baltimore area, with more than 2,500 local agents. The company has a global relationship with Christie's International Real Estate, but mainly operates across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast area of the United States.

Long & Foster agents specialize in luxury real estate and are tech-savvy and digitally connected. Their part ownership in Moxi Works, a real estate technology company, ensures their agents on the cutting edge.
