2018 Agents’ Choice Awards—Managing Broker of the Year: Anthony Askowitz, RE/MAX Advance Realty

Anthony Askowitz
RE/MAX Advance Realty

As president and managing broker of RE/MAX Advance Realty, Anthony directs the activities of his real estate professionals in the company’s Kendall and South Miami offices. Under his leadership, RE/MAX Advance Realty agents consistently outsell their competitors from the leading (and larger) Miami offices, often by wide margins. In 2017, RE/MAX Advance Realty generated more than $550 million in annual sales revenue, with 1,433 total transaction sides. With 170 agents, the company established an estimated $3.24 million annual “per agent” sales average; far exceeding industry averages and continuing the company’s local dominance in per-agent production and efficiency. 
Anthony credits this success to the RE/MAX global brand and an outstanding staff of 13 professionals, who provide administrative and marketing support to his agents. At less than 6%, RE/MAX Advance Realty claims one of the lowest (if not THE lowest) agent turnover rates in all of South Florida, where the average turnover rate is closer to 30%.
Anthony, a Miami native, is also an active and productive agent, consistently selling more than 150 homes a year. His position as a “non-competing selling broker” gives him a genuine understanding of the lives and challenges of working agents, and of the front lines of Miami’s dynamic real estate market. Among Miami’s leading offices, Anthony is the only broker who is also an active sales associate.
Anthony is a regular contributor to Inman News, where his monthly “Agent/Broker Perspective” column tackles both sides of hypothetical real estate situations, highlighting his expertise as both a working agent and managing broker. He regularly provides one-on-one coaching with his agents, and personally joins them on seller interviews in an effort to secure listings.
“I am humbled and honored to be chosen for this prestigious award, and congratulate all of my fellow nominees. I share the award with my amazing team of RE/MAX Advance professionals and agents, who work incredibly hard to serve our customers every single day…and make me look good in the process! 
In all seriousness, I must take this opportunity to thank my entire family, friends and colleagues for the extraordinary love and support they have given me over the past two months. I have been open about my diagnosis of and treatment for thyroid cancer in October – as well as my anticipated full recovery – and the outpouring of concern I received has been overwhelming. Thank you to everyone who has written, called, emailed, visited, and posted. And thank you to Miami Agent for considering me for this award, and to everyone who voted!”
