Who we are
What began in Denver, Colorado, in 1973 as "a pad of paper and a dream" is now a global real estate franchise network that spreads across 63 countries and eight territories, on six continents.
The revolutionary RE/MAX Concept of enabling real estate professionals to maximize their business potential has evolved into an organization of more than 100,000 Sales Associates in more than 6,900 offices worldwide.
RE/MAX Sales Associates
RE/MAX Associates, on average, lead the industry in production, experience, and professional designations.
The RE/MAX Balloon logo
The red, white and blue RE/MAX Balloon, with its "Above the Crowd!®" slogan, is one of the most recognizable business logos in the world. With nearly 90 RE/MAX Hot Air Balloons around the globe, RE/MAX has the world's largest balloon fleet.
An industry leader
RE/MAX is the No. 1 real estate organization in Canada and in the United States.
The first RE/MAX region outside the United States and Canada was the Caribbean Basin, opened in 1991. It was followed two years later by RE/MAX of Mexico. In 1995, RE/MAX expanded into Southern Africa, Spain, Israel, Italy and Germany. Since then, RE/MAX regions have become established across Europe, in Asia and in Australia.
Record RE/MAX production
In 1999 RE/MAX 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 RE/MAX network is now involved in over 2 million sales transactions per year.
The RE/MAX concept
RE/MAX stands for "real estate maximums."
In exchange for paying a management fee and a share of the monthly office overhead, RE/MAX Associates keep the maximum allowed amount of their commissions and receive the many benefits of RE/MAX programs and services.
By offering Associates maximum commissions and maximum career freedom, RE/MAX influenced competitors to re-examine and adjust their own policies toward sales 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 RE/MAX 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.
Committed to real estate service
In a business environment of mergers and acquisitions, RE/MAX is the only major real estate network still owned and directed by its founders.
RE/MAX commitment to its membership has led to an ever-increasing number of accolades from the business community at large, including selection of RE/MAX as the best in the business. In its annual ranking of top franchises, Entrepreneur magazine named RE/MAX the number one real estate services franchise in 2000. On the consumer front, Worth magazine honoured RE/MAX in both 1999 and 2000 with its prestigious "Readers' Choice" award as the best real estate brokerage.
35 Years "Above the Crowd!®"
RE/MAX - now an established industry leader - celebrated its 30th anniversary at the 2003 RE/MAX International Convention in Las Vegas. Young in years, but mature in experience, RE/MAX looks ahead to even greater development and success in its next thirty years.

RE/MAX Mainstreet is a "members-only Extranet web site" designed exclusively for the RE/MAX organization, providing a world of resources to help solve problems, retrieve information and access the ongoing efforts to improve the RE/MAX products and services.
This site is only open to RE/MAX Affiliates, RE/MAX Employees, and RE/MAX Approved Suppliers. The basic components of this site are: a Forum Messaging area for online discussion threads, a Chat area for real-time exchanges and conferences and a Library area for documents, forms, and other resource material submitted by RE/MAX Affiliates and RE/MAX International.
