About Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®
In 1963, a group of ambitious independent brokers headed by industry icon Ebby Halliday met at the Drake Hotel in Chicago and decided to change the real estate industry and launch a legacy. A new network of real estate companies across the country was formed under the trademark of RELO®. Today, this world class organization, now LeadingRE, is headquartered in the heart of downtown Chicago and comprised of more than 600 of the best-known local and regional real estate firms.
In keeping with its name, Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® recruits only the best of the best among locally and regionally-branded firms – because each firm’s reputation and performance reflect upon other affiliates nationally and globally. LeadingRE links those trusted brand names under one umbrella to help consumers make the connection from market to market. With more than 5,000 offices and 150,000 sales associates in the United States and 35 countries abroad, LeadingRE members sell more homes than any other national brand.* Our members are the top firms in nearly half of the top 88 markets in the United States, representing a powerful force in American real estate.*
Beacham & Company was fortunate enough to be invited to join LeadingRE in November 2009. As the top selling real estate office in Buckhead and Intown Atlanta, we believe that we share the same ideals as other LeadingRE members who are also the top companies in their markets. The most common of those ideals shared by LeadingRE members is a commitment to set the gold standard for elegant real estate marketing in their respective markets.
