Platinum Realty Moves to No. 1 Market Share Position in Kansas City

KANSAS CITY, MO. /Realty Wire/  MAY 31, 2023 — latinum Realty announced today that it has achieved number one market share among all residential brokerages in Kansas City with sales of 12,805 units and $3.8 billion in volume in the two-year period 4/1/21 – 3/31/23.

The company joined United Real Estate in 2022, now the sixth-largest brokerage operation in the U.S., and operates in seven major Midwest markets and five states with 2,300 agents. United’s service footprint in Kansas City includes Platinum Realty and United | Kansas City & Johnson County with 2,600 agents in total.

The achievement can be attributed to several key differentiators. The company’s commitment to providing exceptional value and a superior return on investment has been a driving force behind its success. Agents recognize the tangible value proposition offered by Platinum Realty, witnessing their money working for them rather than being spent on unnecessary overhead costs. By shifting the business model to a more lucrative model, United Real Estate companies, including Platinum Realty, are gaining thousands of agents here and across the country. Platinum has emerged as the leading brokerage due to its straightforward compensation plan and high-quality agent and client services.

“Unlike legacy brokerages who are burdened with high costs and overhead, Platinum Realty operates with extreme efficiency and effectiveness. Platinum has eliminated all high-cost, low-value expenses, things that agents just don’t need or use anymore, and converted the savings into more income for our agents. We deliver higher net earnings than other brokerages, and at our scale, we are able to provide an industry-best value proposition to our agents. The best part is that we do more for our agents so they can do more for their clients. The combination is the driving force behind Platinum Realty’s success and our ability to defy the adjusting market conditions,” stated Rick Haase, President of United Real Estate.

“By avoiding inefficient, built-in costs that other brokerages face, Platinum Realty provides 100% support, 100% training, and 100% commission to its agents, an unmatched value proposition that agents recognize and appreciate. This has been a key differentiator that has made us the market share leader,” stated Rob Hill, Director of Business Development.

Platinum Realty differentiates itself by leveraging its proprietary technology, Bullseye™ Agent Productivity Platform. The cloud-based technology increases productivity and allows agents to operate smarter and more efficiently. The company continues to embrace the shifting market dynamics by expanding its training, education and development with United University – powered by a learning management system within its proprietary technology platform. The platform is a single hub for accessing education, marketing, productivity tools and all agent resources – on-demand from any device. These offerings significantly strengthen agents’ ability to outperform the adjusted market. By prioritizing sales skills development and keeping agents engaged and positioned for success, Platinum Realty ensures agents’ long-term profitability.

“Platinum Realty also benefits from the Midwest’s resilience in holding property values while other markets experience volatility. With a thriving economy, increased job growth, rising home starts and low inventory, the Midwest is well-positioned for the future. As the economy continues to improve and interest rates stabilize, we anticipate Platinum Realty’s continued growth, solidifying our leading market share position,” explained Shelby Austin, Director of Broker Services.
