DISCOVER REMAX

RE/MAX, short for "Real Estate Maximums," is an American international real estate company that operates through a franchise system. The company has held the number one market share in the United States and Canada since 1999, as measured by residential transaction sides. RE/MAX has more than 100,000 agents in 6,800 offices. RE/MAX operates in about 100 countries.

 

ORIGIN OF REMAX

RE/MAX, the world's most successful real estate network was co-founded by RE/MAX International chairman Dave Liniger and his wife Gail Liniger in 1973 in Denver, Colorado. At that time, most salespeople were earning just 50% commission and office owners directly controlled every aspect of a salesperson's job. Agents were disillusioned and unmotivated and most left the industry within two years. Liniger, a real estate agent himself, felt there had to be a better way, and decided to start putting his dreams of a fairer real estate system into practice. 


He drafted an innovative business plan that put salespeople first and enabled both office owners and agents to succeed. He called his master plan RE/MAX, an acronym for real estate maximums. Liniger and his wife Gail, also a real estate agent, hoped to make a difference with their new company and its unique business structure. What they achieved was nothing short of a global revolution. 

In an industry rife with mergers and acquisitions, RE/MAX is the only major real estate network still owned and directed by its original founders. Today Dave and Gail Liniger are still at the helm of RE/MAX International. The company's expansion has been unstoppable, with recorded growth every single year for more than three decades. 

On average, RE/MAX adds at least one new office to its international network each day and around 10,000 agents each year. RE/MAX operates worldwide with offices in over 65 countries, including Australia, New Zealand, United States of America, Canada, Africa, Europe, United Kingdom, Middle East, Central America, Caribbean, Asia and the Pacific.

THE REMAX BALLOON

 

The RE/MAX hot air balloon is one of the most recognised corporate logos in the Balloon-aboutus_Med.jpgworld. In Australia, RE/MAX balloons are often seen floating over early morning traffic, above the streets and suburbs of metropolitan areas.


The hot air balloon became RE/MAX International's company logo after RE/MAX participated in a hot air balloon festival in New Mexico in 1978. It was intended to be a publicity stunt but was so successful that RE/MAX executives decided to adopt it as the company logo. The RE/MAX balloon symbolises the company's independence, freedom, innovation and enjoyment - all of which are important features of the RE/MAX system and culture. 

RE/MAX International has the largest balloon fleet in the world with more than 90 balloons regularly drifting across skylines worldwide. In 1998, RE/MAX International Chairman Dave Liniger and two crew members made headlines by attempting the world's first stratospheric helium balloon expedition from Alice Springs in Australia's Northern Territory. 

In Australia, RE/MAX has three balloons, based in Brisbane, Melbourne and the Gold Coast. They are used at events, in promotions and in general advertising. Members of the public are able to hire our balloons for joy flights via their local operators.

RE/MAX is a truly global phenomenon. The RE/MAX network spans the earth with more than 6,900 offices operating in nearly 100 countries. Worldwide, RE/MAX comprises of over One Hundred and Twenty One Thousand (120,000) agents who lead the industry in professional designations, experience and production while providing real estate services. RE/MAX stands for Real Estate MAXimums. And that’s just what you can expect – the maximum return for your dollar. Here is a brief list of what you can expect when you appoint one of our agents to sell your home.


1) Maximum experience
 
With RE/MAX, you are backed by a strong, reputable company with more than 40 years in the real estate industry. And the RE/MAX system only attracts motivated professionals: the type of person you would want handling one of the largest financial transactions you will make in a your lifetime.

 
2) Maximum motivation
 
RE/MAX agents make a personal financial investment in each of their listings. Unlike other real estate salespeople, RE/MAX associates operate their own business and so are motivated to achieve the highest price for your property in the shortest time frame. Who would you rather have handling your property – a traditional real estate agent who is paid a wage whether or not they are actively marketing your property, or one whose income depends on proven sales results?
 
3) Maximum exposure
 
RE/MAX is dedicated to providing its agents with the tools needed to ensure your property receives the widest possible exposure so you achieve the best possible results. Advantages of listing with a RE/MAX agent include brand power and distinctive signage: the RE/MAX hot-air balloon is one of the most recognised marketing icons in the world and your property will benefit from association with this powerful image and from any advertising done in conjunction with it. Then there’s the RE/MAX referral network: with more than 120,000 agents and 6900 offices in nearly 100 countries across the globe, our referral network is one of the most powerful and comprehensive in the industry. 
 
4) Maximum satisfaction

More than 70% of RE/MAX sales associates’ listings come from repeat customers or referrals from past clients and their friends. This is more than twice the industry average, which says plenty about the way we do things.
