Membership in the Top 20 is based on prior year residential sales achievements. Each year, the network gives special recognition to its Top 20 residential agents and Top 20 residential teams, as well as its top commercial agents and teams. A team involves the combined efforts of two or more licensed agents.
In 2010, RE/MAX was the market share leader in listings sold for the south suburbs of Cook County and for Will County. RE/MAX agents sold more listings in each of those areas than agents affiliated with any other brokerage organization.
