US based RealtyTrac® has announced that Windermere Real Estate is the newest member of the RealtyTrac Network. Windermere Real Estate, a Seattle-based brokerage with offices that span the entire U.S. Western coast, is now part of the unique, exclusive residential real estate network.
Windermere Real Estate was founded in Seattle in 1972 with one office and eight agents. Since then the second-generation, family-run company has grown into the largest regional real estate company in the Western United States with a network of 7,000 agents in 300 offices. In 2013, Windermere closed over 77,000 transactions for more than $25 billion in sales volume. In Seattle, where the company is headquartered, it represents more than 40 percent of all real estate sales in the local market.
“The addition of Windermere Real Estate to the RealtyTrac Network furthers our mission of aligning with top brokerages in the nation to leverage RealtyTrac’s many resources and further establish them as highly credible, sought after authorities on the housing market,” said Jamie Moyle, CEO of RealtyTrac. “We look forward to providing Windermere with robust real estate data and analytics, increased media reach and a broker-centric, business relationship that cannot be matched.”
Windermere Real Estate shares the goal of providing consumers with the best real estate experience possible. By becoming a member of the RealtyTrac Network, Windermere will receive access to RealtyTrac’s unparalleled data sets, as well as incorporating President OB Jacobi’s expert insight into RealtyTrac’s housing and real estate reports that are distributed on a national and local level.
