History

REMAX International


In 1973, Dave Liniger was fairly fresh out of the U.S. Air Force and not too far removed from his rural Indiana boyhood. He had found his niche selling real estate, energized by the gratitude he received from the families he helped. But as he learned more about his profession, he realized, "There's a better way to do this." Unable to find an office ready for his ideas, he started RE/MAX as a one-agent office in Denver.

His dream was pretty big: Create a real estate organization that any buyer or seller could approach anywhere in the world knowing that only experienced, career-minded professionals worked there.


The concept, strikingly simple in hindsight, caught on; and the competition never caught up. RE/MAX grew from 21 agents in 1973 to around 90,000 today.

Today, the RE/MAX Balloon stands for trustworthy, results-oriented real estate sales help in more than 80 countries. RE/MAX Sales Associates help more families buy and sell real estate every year than any other brokerage organization in the world. The founders believed that to attract and retain the best agents in the business, brokers must offer maximum compensation, advanced support services and the freedom to succeed. Agents would invest in the brokerage operations, and in return receive a wide variety of services, and more control over their business.

The strategy worked. Today RE/MAX has more than 90,000 agents in over 80 countries, and is recognized around the world for its red, white and blue hot air balloon logo. The network’s streamlined management system means problems are anticipated, and decisions are implemented quickly, efficiently and effectively to help you and your agents sell real estate.

At RE/MAX, the question of stability is no question at all. The continuity and strength of leadership – combined with turn-on-a-dime flexibility – helps ensure RE/MAX will weather any economy, just as it has through the past four decades.
