DENVER – RE/MAX LLC is celebrating its 41st year as the company continues to lead in market share, agent productivity and international expansion. Co-founded by Dave and Gail Liniger on January 30, 1973, the company has attained countless achievements throughout the years, including a successful public offering last October. RE/MAX trades under the ticker symbol RMAX on the New York Stock Exchange.
“Over four decades, RE/MAX has weathered the ups and downs of the real estate market and has continued to grow, outperforming our competitors,” said Dave Liniger, RE/MAX Co-Founder and Chairman. “Our agents are dedicated to helping folks realize the American dream of homeownership. And, we’re dedicated to supporting our agents and offices.”
RE/MAX was born in a single brokerage office in Denver, based on an innovative agent-centric philosophy that attracted the industry’s top performers. In 2013, for the 11th time in 15 years, RE/MAX, LLC was recognized as the highest ranking real estate company in Entrepreneur magazine’s 34th annual “Franchise 500.”
In October, RE/MAX was the leading real estate organization in the Franchise Times Top 200 for the fifth consecutive year. The annual survey is based on worldwide sales. And, RE/MAX was the only real estate company to be included in the Top 50 Franchises for Minorities compiled by the National Minority Franchising Initiative. It was the sixth straight year that RE/MAX made the list.
“The philosophy within our company is that the harder you work, the more successful you are,” said Gail Liniger, RE/MAX Co-Founder and Vice Chairman. “And every single year, RE/MAX agents prove how right that is.”
During the first three quarters of 2013, RE/MAX added 454 franchises worldwide, with 166 new franchises in the United States. During the same time period, RE/MAX sold 147 new franchises in Europe including 41 in Turkey. Elsewhere, 30 new franchises were sold in India and 23 in Brazil.
Master franchise rights for 13 countries were also sold in the first three quarters of the year including the sale of Japan, the world’s third-largest economy. RE/MAX now has a presence in over 90 countries, more than any of its competitors.
Beginning March 3, thousands of RE/MAX affiliates from around the world will gather at The Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino for the annual RE/MAX R4 convention.
