TORONTO & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Real Brokerage Inc. (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing publicly traded real estate brokerage, announced today that Legends Real Estate has joined the company. The Sacramento-based brokerage, led by John Pope, expands Real’s presence in Northern California.
“I’m excited to welcome the entire Legends Real Estate brokerage to Real,” said Real President Sharran Srivatsaa. “Throughout his 45-year career in residential real estate, John has developed a reputation for helping new agents succeed. His decision to roll his firm into Real reinforces the draw of the One Real culture to independent brokerages who are looking for a place where teamwork and collaboration thrive as well as the resources of a global platform.”
Pope joins Real as a regional broker, where he will be responsible for Northern California.

“It’s important to change with the market,” said Pope. ”We looked at a number of different business models and were blown away by the leadership and culture at Real. The company’s business model aligns with how I’ve done business. My agents will benefit from being part of a bigger organization, and I look forward to doing what I love – helping agents succeed.”
