RE/MAX is hands down the most successful network of real estate agents in the world. There’s a good reason they’ve consistently be named a top franchisor over the last four decades. The company gives their agents all the tools to establish a healthy, stable and flourishing real estate business in your market.
Their estate franchise model is designed to be as close to a completely autonomous business as possible. The RE/MAX brand aims to attract entrepreneurial-minded property professional who want to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves. The company is geared towards setting people up for independence giving them the ability to retain the maximum percentage of their earned commissions.
The company was founded in 1973 by Dave and Gail Liniger, two real estate agents from Denver, Colorado. The pair wanted to develop a new real estate concept where agents could enjoy the freedom of running their own business and allow them to keep a maximum proportion of their commission.
It wasn’t until 1994, that RE/MAX was brought to Europe by Walter J. Schneider and Frank J. Polzler. In Europe alone, RE/MAX has over 29,000 agents and over 2,200 offices. RE/MAX continues to prove it’s dedicating to improving the quality of its services while also expanding its branch network.
In fact, the brand inked agreements for 170+ franchises and renewed 285 affiliated offices from January-March 2022. This reflects RE/MAX’s first quarter report of 2022 which had a growth of over a quarter in total revenue.
"Our doors are always open to motivated entrepreneurs who want to leverage the various resources that come with associating with RE/MAX," said Peter Luft, RE/MAX Vice President of Franchise Sales.
"Many independent offices have interest in joining a worldwide leader and having the support of a brand behind them that is very responsive to the needs of an agent today," Mr Luft said.
