The strength of LeadingRE is the quality of each individual brokerage firm. Our firms don’t simply “pay for” a franchise brand name — they must earn the designation of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World,® year after year.
Each LeadingRE firm goes through a rigorous application process with stringent market share and performance requirements. LeadingRE was not created for firms that need the assistance of a national brand to gain market share; our locally branded firms are already dominant players in their markets.

Our website, LeadingRE.com, leverages our affiliate website traffic with IDX to give consumers access to more than two million homes around the world.

Providing client introductions globally is just one more way you can prove yourself as the “full service” real estate resource. Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® makes more client introductions each year than any other broker network and holds an unprecedented over 56% conversion ratio. It is our members’ commitment to entrusting their clients out of area home buying and selling needs to another network member that ensures the very best service and a pipeline of network referral business for LeadingRE members. While the more traditional referral client — the relocating home seller — still exists, the majority of our annual referral business comes from our experienced sales associates’ dedication to continuing to serve their entire sphere of business.
This includes past clients, out of town friends and family, graduating children, retiring parents and colleagues from local civic and charitable organizations.
