The Scottsdale-based company is named the largest residential real estate brokerage by sales volume by the Phoenix Business Journal

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — July 10, 2023 — HomeSmart has once again been recognized as the largest real estate brokerage by sales volume by the Phoenix Business Journal, marking the eleventh consecutive year at number one on the publication’s annual ranking based on 2022 local residential sales volume.

HomeSmart agents closed $13.26 billion and sold more than 24,000 homes across the Phoenix-area, continuing to dominate the competition across the Valley. “Our agents are provided with the highest level of support, customized resources and a tech suite that makes running their business easy and rewarding,” says the brokerage’s Founder and CEO Matt Widdows. “The HomeSmart model has always been about supporting our agents’ growth, and the proof is in the numbers.” 

Overcoming the challenges of the market, including high interest rates and less than ideal inventory, HomeSmart’s agents have  proven why the brokerage’s industry-leading model is the key to growth. “Ranking number one for eleven consecutive years takes the right combination of expertise and commitment to the craft, and our local agent network understands what it takes to make it to the top and stay there,”  says Rich La Rue, Vice President of Corporate Brokerage – Western Region and HomeSmart’s Designated Broker in Phoenix. 

Focused on cutting-edge proprietary technology, in-depth training and hands-on support, all backed by HomeSmart’s 100%-commission plans, the brokerage continues to fuel expansion efforts across the local market.
