Re/Max to Enter NYC Market

One of the most competitive real estate markets in the world is the New York City real estate market. While some real estate companies may have a lot of success in the suburban areas around the city, some do not find a way to copy that success and translate it into success in Manhattan and the surrounding areas of the city. While it can be a difficult challenge, new companies still try to enter the market or increase their market share.

One company that is continuing to make a push into New York City is Re/Max, which is one of the largest real estate agencies in the country. The company already had an office and agents in the city, but they have not been able to gain much traction, but they appear to be ready to expand more into the city.

Currently, Re/Max has over 100,000 agents located all over the country and in over 100 countries across the world. Due to its ability to expand throughout the country and internationally, they will try to expand more into the city. This will include opening many more offices across Manhattan and marketing heavily to be considered one of the strongest real estate firms in the city.

Re/Max will have plenty of competitors in the city. One of the biggest competitors that they will face will be Town Residential, which has been one of the fastest growing NYC luxury real estate firms. Over the past five years, the company has continued expand throughout the city and now represents and sells hundreds of properties per year. This includes selling some of the highest-end real estate through new condo developments across the city.

Town Real Estate provides a number of different services. While they focus on sales of new and high-end real estate, they also provide leasing services and even some property management services. Town Residential is also well known for putting out regular newsletters discussing the state of the real estate market in New York City and what they expect to see in the near term
