Dave Liniger's, the found of the RE/MAX brand had a bold vision for the real estate industry and it was nothing short of groundbreaking. He aimed to provide experienced agents with more control over their businesses, along with increased commission rates. And what started as an idea on paper quickly revolutionized the industry through maximum-commission models and powerful marketing tools. With this new approach, agents no longer had to settle for traditional commission splits and instead could pool resources to cover office expenses. Liniger's innovative plan ultimately changed the course of history, forever altering the landscape of the real estate world.
From its humble beginnings in 1973, the RE/MAX real estate network has seen consistently rising success. With each decade came new milestones: globalization with expansions into Canada and other markets; agent count growth that pushed it past 5,000 agents in 1984 and beyond 25,000 before 1990 was out; then finally to over 50k by 1998! This allowed them to reach their market peak of 1 million transaction sides sold annually- a first for any brand involved in global real estate - earning the mantra "Nobody can sell more!"
In the 1990s, RE/MAX experienced international expansion on a massive scale with franchises launching across Europe and South Africa. Additionally, they introduced groundbreaking initiatives such as their Satellite Network - enabling agents to access unparalleled industry training - and made charitable commitments through support of Children's Miracle Network charities. These milestones have since evolved into quintessential cornerstones that account for much of the brand's ongoing success today.
While RE/MAX experienced rapid international growth in the early 2000s, they were forced to respond quickly when a global financial meltdown struck years later. Dave Liniger and his team worked hard to address housing challenges by advocating for easier short-selling processes and providing education opportunities so agents could help families facing foreclosure. Thanks to these efforts, RE/MAX now boasts an extensive network of knowledgeable real estate professionals around the world prepared with the skills needed during difficult times.
RE/MAX is a trailblazing name in the global real estate landscape, boasting over 140,000 agents across 110 countries and territories. As part of its mission to lead cutting-edge innovation and technology solutions for buyers around the world, it launched remax.com allowing users to search listings through their own language or currency as well as introduce other platforms like MyRU eLearning and RE/MAX Commercial websites that are always ahead of industry trends. Having celebrated 40 years since inception back in 2013 - when REMAX Holdings Inc also became publicly traded on NYSE's RMAX stock exchange - this powerhouse network shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon!
