Central Pennsylvania's Big Three in residential real estate held onto to their spots, according to the latest Real Trends 500 ranking report.
The top three accounted for more than 13,500 closed transactions in 2012 and nearly $2.5 billion in combined sales volume in the midstate.
Manor Township-based Prudential Homesale was over $2.1 billion with closed volumes from offices in the Reading region and Maryland. In Central Pennsylvania, its 2012 closed-sale volume was about $1.5 billion.
Manheim Township-based Coldwell Banker came in at $592 million in 2012, followed by $410 million for Hampden Township-based JGR, according to Real Trends.
Meanwhile, Pittsburgh-based Howard Hanna Real Estate Services, which has a growing midstate presence, was again the No. 4 largest broker in the country.
Howard Hanna posted closed-sale volume of $7.09 billion. Real Trends did not include 39 franchise locations, so they have Howard Hanna at nearly $6.7 billion, based on 37,986 transactions.
New Jersey-based NRT LLC remains the largest broker with 289,614 transactions.
