“The competitive advantages RE/MAX offers simply can’t be matched,” Kelly says. “The best part is that RE/MAX agents use them to build their personal business.”
Forging Their Destinies
Many RE/MAX agents embrace the resources and transform them into more business, more profits and, most importantly, more happy clients.
Georges Bardagi is a perfect example. Bardagi, a Team Leader with RE/MAX du Cartier in Montreal, Quebec, has been an elite producer for two decades. He started his career at RE/MAX in 1991 and kept finding new reasons to stay.
Over the years, Bardagi has succeeded in great markets and in bad ones. Right now, Montreal is riddled with for-sale-by-owner listings, all organized on a regional website that poses a unique challenge to his business. When Bardagi approaches those sellers, who are often frustrated after months of no activity, he’s backed by the brand locals know and trust.
“RE/MAX has 40 years of support and results behind it, and nothing beats that,” Bardagi says. “I never have to sell the brand; I only have to sell my team’s abilities.”
That’s not a problem for Bardagi, whose team has closed more than $70 million in sales so far this year.
“At the end of the day, if you have a great brand but the agents don’t provide great service, business will suffer,” Bardagi says. “RE/MAX agents are the best. People know they can trust us to do a great job.”
