Real Pushes Past the 20,000-Agent Mark as it Celebrates the Company’s 10th Anniversary

July 9, 2024

The fastest growing brokerage marks two significant milestones with daylong celebration that includes hundreds of its agents and bell ringing at Nasdaq

TORONTO & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 9, 2024-- The Real Brokerage Inc. (NASDAQ: REAX), the world’s fastest-growing, publicly traded real estate brokerage, today announced the company’s agent count now stands at more than 20,000. Real added approximately 1,000 agents per month during the first half of 2024 and surpassed this important milestone as it celebrated its 10th anniversary.

Real is marking both milestones by hosting a celebration at the Nasdaq exchange today that includes a mastermind agent education seminar, a celebratory ringing of the closing bell and a reception that includes more than 250 agents and employees. In its journey toward reaching 20,000 agents, Real issued a challenge in May for its agents to contribute $20,000 to One Real Impact, the company’s agent assistance fund. The company pledged to match these contributions, and agents exceeded this goal by more than 200%.

“I can’t tell you what an amazing feeling it is to reach this milestone. Thank you to our agents and Real employees who come to work each day committed to creating a different type of real estate experience. It wouldn’t be possible without you,” Tamir Poleg, Real Founder, Chairman and CEO, said. “From the very beginning our North Star has been to make agents’ lives better, and that hasn’t changed. Our growth demonstrates that we’ve filled a void in our industry, and it makes me even more determined to pursue our mission of changing the real estate experience for our agents and the clients they serve.”

Committed to revolutionizing the real estate transaction by empowering agents with advanced technology and unparalleled support, Real has a presence in all 50 states in the U.S. and four Canadian provinces and offers an integrated platform of brokerage, mortgage and title services. Real is the only brokerage with a proprietary tech platform utilized by every agent, allowing the company to scale quickly without adding significant costs. RealTrends named Real the top mover of 2023 by both transaction sides and volume, and Real was the only publicly traded brokerage to report growth in agent count, transaction count and revenue throughout 2023 and in the first quarter of 2024.

“At Real, we believe that ‘we’ are bigger than ‘me’. So reaching the 20,000-agent mark is more than just a number. It means we now have a bigger, stronger community of like-minded agents that we can all tap into,” said Sharran Srivatsaa, President of Real. “As we continue to grow, we’ll continue to focus on what differentiates Real – an entrepreneurial spirit that supports our agents, celebrates differences and comes together as OneReal.”
