In an effort to help narrow down the top franchise opportunities for the nearly 30 million entrepreneurs residing in the United States, esteemed publications have recently released their rankings of the nation's best brands.

Topping two of the prestigious lists including Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 and Franchise Business Review's Top Franchises list was Real Property Management, the nation's leading full-service property management company.

Known as the world's first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking, the Franchise 500® recognized Real Property Management for the seventh consecutive year, acknowledging its exceptional performance in areas including financial strength and stability, growth rate and brand power. The list serves as a superior competitive measure for franchisors as well as a primary research tool for entrepreneurs seeking established franchise concepts with proven systems and results. Further establishing its industry status, Real Property Management was named among the only two property management franchises to be ranked on the list.

Receiving recognition for the fourth time since 2014, Real Property Management was also named a top franchise for 2018 by Franchise Business Review. Each year, the franchise market research firm performs independent surveys solely based on franchisee satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, marketing, franchisor/franchisee relations and financial opportunity.

"With more and more Americans opting for a chance at business ownership, these two accolades act as a key validator that our industry is a great franchise opportunity for prospective and current entrepreneurs," stated Lukas Krause, CEO of Real Property Management. "As we continue to grow, Real Property Management looks forward to providing the ongoing training, support and leadership necessary to further grow and ensure the success and satisfaction of our franchise owners."

Real Property Management is the leading property management franchise in the nation, growing since data was collected by Entrepreneur to nearly 300 offices in 46 states that manage assets worth more than $13 billion. The company's offices specialize in managing single-family homes, townhomes, condos, multiplexes and small apartment buildings. Its services include finding and screening tenants, completing the lease agreements, collecting rent, arranging for any necessary repairs, and processing evictions when necessary. Real Property Management offices also manage the legal compliance for local, state and federal real estate law.
