Florida Keys – April 4, 2020 – Coldwell Banker Schmitt Real Estate Company (CBSREC), based on dollar volume of sales for 2019, was ranked among the largest real estate companies in the United States, appearing at #473 in RISMedia’s 2020 Power Broker Report based on dollar volume of sales for 2019.

CBSREC, once again and for the sixth time, is the only real estate company from the Florida Keys to be ranked among the top 500 real estate companies in America.  The National Association of Realtor statistics indicate there are over 80,000 real estate brokerages in America placing CBSREC among the top one-half of one percent of real estate companies in the United States.

RISMedia President & CEO John Featherston congratulated Coldwell Banker Schmitt for its ranking in this year’s Power Broker Report. "Congratulations to all the leaders and their respective management teams and sales associates, who have contributed to the collective success represented in the 32nd Annual Power Broker Report," Featherston said. "While the Power Broker Report provides a look into the achievements of our industry's largest firms, every one of these firms, and especially their sales associates, are facing tremendous adversity due to the impact of the coronavirus on all of our communities. Our industry is extremely fortunate to have so many industrious, effective and dedicated businessmen and women, and it is our honor to celebrate this year's leaders in both transactions and closed dollar volume. We all hope and pray we recover from this crisis soon."

RISMedia's 32nd Anniversary Power Broker Report & Survey is based on an online survey of residential real estate brokerages in the U.S., conducted by RISMedia Jan. 18-Feb. 25, 2020. The survey ranks brokerages by closed sales volume and transaction sides in 2019. Brokerages must have a majority ownership interest, inclusive of subsidiaries, to complete the survey, and have had their submissions verified by the associated broker and accountant, CFO or other party who can validate the accuracy of the data submitted. To be eligible for the 2020 survey, brokerages must have completed a minimum of $75 million in residential sales volume in 2019. There is no cost or obligation to participate in the Annual Power Broker Report & Survey.
