Call It Closed International Realty Makes List of Nation’s Best Brokerages

National cloud-based brokerage with SWFL origins named top independent brokerage by RealTrends Verified

NAPLES, Fla. (March 25, 2024) – An international, cloud-based real estate brokerage with Southwest Florida origins has been named one of the country’s top independent brokerages by an independent real estate research firm.

Call It Closed International Realty – founded five years ago as the first and only cloud-based, 100% commission brokerage with a multi-tiered revenue sharing platform – earned a spot on the Nation’s Best list from RealTrends Verified, a 30-year-old company that tracks and analyzes real estate brokerages, teams, and agent performance data, spotlighting the top tier of real estate pros. The rankings are featured in The Wall Street Journal and were announced on Friday, March 22.

Among independent brokerages, Call It Closed ranked No. 135 nationwide, according to the 2023 sales data reviewed by RealTrends Verified.

A minimum of 500 closed transaction sides or $350 million in residential sales volume is required. Call It Closed, which now has more than 250 agents operating in 18 states, reported more than 1,200 residential sides and nearly $500 million in residential sales volume in 2023.

“Being ranked among the nation’s top independent brokerages by RealTrends Verified is a great honor,” said Call It Closed co-founder Chad Osborne. “But what it really reflects is how much our customers value our innovative approach and network of local experts in markets across the country —and soon, across the globe.”

The rankings only account for single-family, residential real estate transactions. The research firm noted that Call It Closed’s performance came amid a strong year by independent brokerages, whose market share grew to 27 percent from 2022 to 2023, a 4 percent increase gained at the expense of larger brands.

Chad Osborne and his wife, Aprile, founded the brokerage in 2019 as an alternative to an outdated business model that put a disproportionate share of control (and commissions) in the hands of large brokerages by instead empowering individual agents.

Rather than pay hefty franchise fees or split commissions like some large firms that leave agents with just 70 cents on the dollar, Call It Closed’s entrepreneurial model gives agents a greater opportunity at success. When agents have more control of their cash flow, more resources are available to market their property with greater autonomy, benefiting buyers and sellers alike.
