Who is RANI?

Realty Associates Network Inc. (RANI) is one of the largest independently licensed real estate companies in Illinois,

operating a referral network / holding company and buyer-agency office for over 30 years.

RANI makes referrals and networks with Real Estate offices in Illinois and throughout North America.

Many agents refer to RANI as a “license holding company” because of our low annual fee and zero performance requirements, but we are also considered a Buyer-Agency Brokerage. A common misconception is that a licensee can’t practice real estate while with a holding company because their license is “inactive”.  The opposite is actually true: your license is “Active” with the state, which allows you to legally practice real estate (if the brokerage permits).  RANI agents are permitted to earn commissions by doing nationwide referrals and representing buyers in Illinois, all for the low cost of being with a “holding company”.

Office & Location
The Realty Associates Network Inc. office is located in Des Plaines, Illinois.

Our agents reside throughout Illinois, other states and countries.
