United Country Real Estate
2012 Sales: > $3 Billion
Who: With nearly 550 offices, United Country is the nation’s fastest-growing brokerage and auctioneer network.
Wow: December sales grew 169% year-over-year. CEO Dan Duffy attributes this to record growth in sales of investment-grade properties. Additionally, more than 18% of the network’s brokers posted growth in transaction volume in excess of 100% in 2012.
Insight: “The land brokerage business benefited greatly in 2012 from global economic uncertainties, U.S. and geopolitical turmoil, and the continuation of investment flows into income-producing, inflation-hedging hard assets such as farm, ranch, timber, and oil and gas properties. Based on sales data in early 2013, we expect a continuation of investment into the land asset class for the foreseeable future.”
