Recently honored as one of the Top 500 firms in RISMedia’s annual Power Broker Survey, ERA Sunrise Realty joined an elite group of real estate firms who are not only innovative and competitive, but also dedicated to helping millions of families achieve the American Dream of homeownership. The largest circulated annual report of its kind in the real estate industry, the Power Broker Survey ranks the industry’s largest residential real estate brokerage firms according to closed transaction numbers and closed sales volume.
Now in its 26th year, the Power Broker Survey has long honored the incredible business feats of remarkable real estate leaders—and brokerage firms—who, to this day, are still helping to shape our industry.
RISMedia President & CEO John Featherston congratulated ERA Sunrise Realty for their prestigious ranking in this year’s survey. “The firms represented are the nation’s most elite brokerage firms serving literally millions of consumers with their real estate needs,” Featherston said. “2013 was a turnaround year for real estate firms across the country, as consumer confidence in housing returned and buyers flooded back into the marketplace. But there are many challenges ahead for brokers and agents, from low inventory to lingering economic uncertainty. Discerning real estate consumers will look to proven real estate professionals to help guide them toward the best decision. Being included in the Power Broker Report validates your firm’s reputation as a trusted resource for today’s homebuyers and sellers.”
This year’s survey marks the second solid year of real estate recovery, as brokers across the country paid witness to many key indicators of the housing market’s gradual return to normal. According to survey results, this year’s more than 1,000 responding brokers reported a collective sales volume jump from roughly $768 billion in 2012 to more than $896 billion in 2013; total transactions increased by more than 175,000 in 2013.

The survey ranks residential real estate brokerage firms according to closed transaction numbers and closed sales volume for the year 2013.
