First a caveat. Just because a brokerage is among the top Real Trends rankings doesn’t mean the company did well financially.

Take, for example, Compass, which held the top spot again with $228 billion in sales volume through 200,000 transactions. While those are huge numbers, they didn’t mean Compass generated a profit. The brokerage lost $600 million last year.

Not that everyone on the list lost money. Coming in at No. 2, Anywhere Real Estate — parent to brands that include Sotheby’s, Corcoran and Coldwell Banker — had $218 billion in sales, and eked out a $32 million profit.
