46 December 2018 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE Founder & CEO, Realty ONE Group The son of Polish immigrants, Kuba Jewgieniew rose to become a top-producing agent. But the frustration with the lack of support he received in his real estate office inspired him to create Realty ONE Group, an agent-focused brokerage that provides real estate professionals with the coaching, tools, training and support they need to succeed. The company closed more than 58,000 transactions and $21 billion in sales volume in 2017, and expanded nationally and internation - ally, adding 65-plus franchisees in 2018, more than twice the number added in 2017. "Every - ONE consistently puts their best efforts forward to ensure that we all achieve our goals so that everyONE wins," says Jewgieniew.
