We're the Real Estate Leaders. No one in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX.
RE/MAX at a glance:
What began in Denver, Colorado, in 1973 as "a pad of paper and a dream" is now a global real estate franchise network that spreads across 63 countries and eight territories, on six continents.
The revolutionary RE/MAX Concept of enabling real estate professionals to maximize their business potential has evolved into an organization of more than 118,500 Sales Associates in more than 6,300 offices worldwide.
RE/MAX Associates, on average, lead the industry in production, experience, and professional designations.
The red, white and blue RE/MAX Balloon, with its "Above the Crowd!®"slogan, is one of the most recognizable business logos in the world. With nearly 90 RE/MAX Hot Air Balloons around the globe, RE/MAX has the world's largest balloon fleet.
RE/MAX is the No. 1 real estate organization in Canada and in the United States.
RE/MAX stands for "real estate maximums."
In exchange for paying a management fee and a share of the monthly office overhead, RE/MAX Associates keep the maximum allowed amount of their commissions and receive the many benefits of RE/MAX programs and services.
By offering Associates maximum commissions and maximum career freedom, RE/MAX influenced competitors to re-examine and adjust their own policies toward sales agents, thus dramatically changing the industry.
As the network grew, renowned for its top producers and quality service to consumers, so did support programs, making RE/MAX a dynamic force in real estate education and technology.
The organization was one of the first real estate companies to have its own proprietary television network and one of the first in the industry to develop a site on the World Wide Web.
In a business environment of mergers and acquisitions, RE/MAX is the only major real estate network still owned and directed by its founders.
RE/MAX commitment to its membership has led to an ever-increasing number of accolades from the business community at large, including selection of RE/MAX as the best in the business. In its annual ranking of top franchises, Entrepreneur magazine named RE/MAX the number one real estate services franchise in 2000. On the consumer front, Worth magazine honored RE/MAX in both 1999 and 2000 with its prestigious "Readers' Choice" award as the best real estate brokerage.
RE/MAX - now an established industry leader - will celebrate its 30th anniversary at the 2003 RE/MAX International Convention. Young in years but mature in experience, RE/MAX looks ahead to even greater development and success in its next quarter century.
Community involvement is highly valued at all levels of the RE/MAX organization - from individual Associates to RE/MAX offices, regions, and RE/MAX International.
RE/MAX cause marketing and charity fund raising take on many forms:
- Most recently, RE/MAX has become a national co-sponsor of the Breast Cancer Survivor Recognition Program at Komen Race for the Cure® events.
- The RE/MAX organization has been the official real estate sponsor of the Childrens Miracle Network since 1992. In 2007 alone RE/MAX agents in Canada raised over $4 milllion dollars for CMN hospitals.
RE/MAX of Western Canada created the Quest for Excellence Program. This bursary program was established to recognize the success and on-going pursuits of Western Canadian students. A "Quest for Excellence" involves any student in Grade 12 who demonstrates great feeling and passion, commitment and dedication, positive attitude and enthusiasm for the subject chosen. RE/MAX presents 24 bursaries of $500 each regionally. The categories are Leadership, Sports, Technology and Trades, Fine Arts, Performing Arts and Community Service. RE/MAX is proud to recognize students, in the very communities in which we live and work, for their outstanding achievements. Education is the building block of our future and if the children we hear from every day are any indication, our future has never been brighter.
- RE/MAX is committed to help raise awareness of the ongoing need for organ donation. GiveLife assists Canadians in making informed decisions regarding organ, tissue and bone marrow donation. The GiveLife site provides some national information regarding organ and tissue donation, but more importantly acts as a portal to the many provincial organizations that are mandated to oversee organ and tissue donation programs across the country.
- RE/MAX International is the first major sponsor of The Wildlife Experience, a conservation and community center promoting understanding of the natural world and its conservation through art and education.
All these venues and more represent the RE/MAX network's commitment to community involvement, serving the public beyond its real estate needs.
