The list is long, but here are a few good reasons to choose RE/MAX®. I have been with RE/MAX® my entire career of almost 20 years. Here is what I believe are the top reasons someone should choose RE/MAX® as their brokerage of choice:
1. Brand recognition: With a brand a little over 40 years young, the red, white and blue RE/MAX® balloon insignia is among the top 10 most identifiable corporate logos in the world. The more RE/MAX® advertises, the more traffic is driven to www.remax.com and more views on your home. RE/MAX dominates the airways with over 53% of all national television advertising against its competition, we are definitely Above the Crowd!
2. Industry leading technology: In 2016 www.eBizMBA.com ranked RE/MAX® the #9 most popular real estate website, with the giant being Zillow sitting in the #1 spot. With almost 2 million unique visitors each month, this is a massive advantage as we soar way above any other franchise brokerage out there. This is among the top reasons why RE/MAX should be your choice. In 2006 virtually all US real estate listings were offered to consumers on www.remax.com.
3. Leading in transactions: In 1997 RE/MAX became the first real estate organization in history to complete 1 million transactions sides in a single year. The slogan, “Nobody In The World Sells More Real Estate” is not just a slogan, it had to be earned to use it. Since at least 1999 the US and Canada have held the #1 market share, as measured by total residential transaction sides completed. We just do more in the industry.
4. Highly trained agents: RE/MAX® agents lead the industry in earning significantly more advanced professional designations. By leading the industry in experience and productivity there is increased customer satisfaction among buyers and sellers in today’s market.
5. Customer satisfaction: RE/MAX® agents receive an average of 70% of their business through repeat and referral business. Their competitors receive an average of 30% from those sources. When you do a great job and get results, it will show in repeat and referral business.
6. Global reach: RE/MAX® is in nearly 100 countries around the world, this only increases brand recognition. Not only that, with more and more corporate relocation happening in this ever shrinking world, it makes referring clients easy and transactions smoother throughout the relocation process.
7. Charity: RE/MAX® agents have raised more than $147 million to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since 1992. It is one of the top three donors of all time. RE/MAX® agents have been recognized for their community service through the National Association of REALTORS® annual Good Neighbor Award program.
8. Respected: RE/MAX® agents are well respected among their business peers. They know when working with a RE/MAX® agent, the transaction will be handled with the utmost level of skill and professionalism. This can lead to quicker sales and thus higher prices for sellers. For the buyers, this can lead to more contracts being accepted, especially when in competition amongst multiple offers.
