RE/MAX is holding its annual R4 international convention this week at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Nearly 6,000 attending agents are here to listen to the vision of cofounders Dave and Gail Liniger, learn best practices from respected coaches, and network with their colleagues from 53 countries around the globe.
“The housing market has experienced a positive rebound during the last few years and RE/MAX is pleased to play a role by serving so many homebuyers and sellers,” says Dave Liniger, CEO, Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder of RE/MAX, LLC. “Our continued success is no secret, it’s simply the high quality agents who choose to work at RE/MAX. Consumers around the world have come to expect a superior level of service from their RE/MAX agent and our agents have delivered time and again.”
Addressing the gathering this afternoon in the Mandalay Bay Special Events Center, Dave Liniger announced that the company continues to grow by all significant measurements.
The audience was excited to hear the details of the network’s 2014 achievements as compared to the prior year:
- Worldwide agent count grew by 5.1 percent to 98,010
- Agent count in the U.S. increased by 4.8 percent to 57,105
- The total number of RE/MAX offices grew to 6,751, an increase of 4.2 percent
- Transaction sides rose to more than 1.4 million across the entire network
With a presence in over 95 countries, no other real estate brand matches our global footprint. RE/MAX added to its country count in 2014 by selling the Master Franchise rights to another five countries. It remains true that nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX.
Linger says, “RE/MAX agents are among the most productive in real estate and they’ve been successful in both challenging markets and recovering ones, and in a great many housing markets around the world.” The RE/MAX R4 convention continues through Thursday at the Mandalay Bay with a keynote presentation from NFL future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning on Wednesday. Other presentations will be made by Kevin Carroll, Mitch Albom, Shawn Achor and Darren Hardy. The event closes out on Thursday evening with a special performance by Aerosmith frontman, Steven Tyler.
