Chances are, you have a RE/MAX real estate sign in front of one of the houses in your neighborhood right now. RE/MAX has more than 120,000 agents working in offices all over the world.

RE/MAX is exceptionally productive. In fact, nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX agents.

Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, RE/MAX was founded in 1973. Dave and Gail Liniger are the original owners and still lead the network of agents today.

2. Century 21

Century 21 agents have been serving the U.S. and the rest of the world even longer than the people of RE/MAX. Headquartered in Madison, New Jersey, Century 21 opened in 1971.

Century 21 has over 7,000 offices in Texas and all over the world. The company is the industry leader in e-marketing campaigns.

3. Coldwell Banker

Coldwell Banker makes the other real estate companies on this list look like a bunch of young whippersnappers. The company was founded in San Francisco in 1906 and is known for offering agents top-notch training.

4. ERA Real Estate

ERA’s website says they promise to sell your home. If they can’t find a buyer for your property, they will buy it themselves.

Electronic Realty Associates was founded in 1971 and gained a share in the market by utilizing the FAX machine, which was new technology at the time. Currently, ERA is operated by Realogy, which is the parent company of Century 21 and Coldwell Banker.

5. Sotheby’s International Realty

Realogy not only owns ERA, Century 21, and Coldwell Banker, they also own Sotheby’s. It should not be surprising to anyone that Sotheby’s, known for their high-end auction houses, caters to the luxury market in real estate as well. If you are buying or selling a high-end home in Texas, you may work with agents from Sotheby’s.

6. Camden Property Trust

Do not be confused by the name. Camden Property Trust does not just sell homes in Camden, Texas. In fact, the name of the company derived from its founders, Richard Campo and D. Keith Oden.

The company is based in Houston and specializes in buying and selling apartments in Texas and all over the country. It was founded in 1993.

7. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate

Capitalizing off the popularity of the magazine with the same name, Better Homes and Gardens offered franchises of their real estate company starting in 2008.

The Texas Better Homes and Gardens’ franchises offer top-notch services to buyers and sellers. Their website has been called the friendliest search in real estate because it allows you to search for a new home based on commute times, schools, neighborhoods, access to parks and public transit systems, as well as traditional methods.
