We're the Real Estate Leaders. No one in the world sells more real estate than REMAX.
REMAX at a glance:
What began in Denver, Colo., in 1973 as "a pad of paper and a dream" is now a global real estate franchise network that spreads across 39 countries and eight territories, on six continents.
The revolutionary REMAX Concept of enabling real estate professionals to maximize their business potential has evolved into an organization of more than 72,000 Sales Associates in more than 4,200 offices worldwide.
REMAX Real Estate Agents and Realtors, on average, lead the industry in production, experience, and professional designations.
The red, white and blue REMAX Balloon, with its "Above the Crowd!®"slogan, is one of the most recognizable business logos in the world. With nearly 90 REMAX Hot Air Balloons around the globe, REMAX has the world's largest balloon fleet.
REMAX is the No. 1 real estate organization in Canada and in the United States.
The first REMAX region outside the United States and Canada was the Caribbean Basin, opened in 1991. It was followed two years later by REMAX of Mexico. In 1995, REMAX expanded into Southern Africa, Spain, Israel, Italy,and Germany. Since then, REMAX regions have become established in across Europe, in Asia, and in Australia.
In 1999, REMAX Associates were involved in more than 1 million sales transaction sides within a single year in the United States alone – an industry milestone. The audited production figures represent the most transaction sides in a single year ever recorded by any real estate network. The REMAX network has repeated the feat ever since.
REMAX stands for "real estate maximums."
In exchange for paying a management fee and a share of the monthly office overhead, REMAX Associates keep the maximum allowed amount of their commissions and receive the many benefits of REMAX programs and services.
By offering Real Estate Agents and Realtors maximum commissions and maximum career freedom, REMAX influenced competitors to re-examine and adjust their own policies toward Real Estate 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 REMAX 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, REMAX is the only major real estate network still owned and directed by its founders.
REMAX commitment to its membership has led to an ever-increasing number of accolades from the business community at large, including selection of REMAX as the best in the business. In its annual ranking of top franchises, Entrepreneur magazine named REMAX 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.
Community involvement is highly valued at all levels of the REMAX organization - from individual Real Estate agents and Realtors to REMAX offices, regions, and RE/MAX International.
