RE/MAX, short for "Real Estate Maximums," is an American international real estate company that operates through a franchise system. The company has held the number one market share in the United States and Canada since 1999, as measured by residential transaction sides. RE/MAX has more than 100,000 agents in 6,800 offices. RE/MAX operates in about 100 countries.
Early history: 1970–1976
RE/MAX was founded in January 1973 by Dave and Gail Liniger. The company was established with a maximum commission concept, meaning agents would keep nearly all of their commissions and pay their broker a share of the office expenses, rather than a share of the commission. In 1975, Dennis Curtin purchased the first RE/MAX franchise outside of Colorado, in Kansas City, Missouri. The company had 100 franchises in two years. RE/MAX held its first convention in Las Vegas in 1976. It became an annual event.
In 1992, RE/MAX became a sponsor of Children's Miracle Network. The company hosts art auctions, organizes golf tournaments, and encourages agent fundraising activities. When buying or selling a home through RE/MAX, listing as a Miracle Home with the balloon logo helps the local Children's Miracle Network hospital. RE/MAX affiliates have raised $147 million for the Children's Miracle Network hospitals in over 20 years of sponsorship.
Local RE/MAX offices use hot air balloons for educational programs and non-profit organization fundraisers.
