Dave and Gail Liniger founded RE/MAX in Denver, Colorado in January 1973. They built the foundation of the network on hard work, belief and resolve. Big things began to happen and in 1975 the network expanded outside Colorado with a franchise in Kansas City. Two years later, it went international with the first Canadian brokerage in Calgary, Alberta. In 1978, the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon made its maiden flight at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and a year later the balloon became the network's official logo; a global brand was born.
Today, the RE/MAX network has over 100,000 agents in 100 countries. RE/MAX China is among the newest regions, and it will take RE/MAX into an exciting new frontier. The global.remax.com property search site has helped this powerhouse network even more closely, offering buyers a central place to search for listings in dozens of countries in their own language and currency. For many reasons, RE/MAX is viewed as as the No. 1 brand in real estate. Whether measured by closed transaction sides, average agent productivity, brand name awareness, education, experience or an assortment of other key metrics, RE/MAX enjoys a top position in a very competitive landscape. And with innovative technology such as the redesigned remax.com, the RE/MAX Mobile Site, and the new RE/MAX Commercial website, the network continues to break barriers and stay ahead of ongoing trends. That's been an enduring theme throughout the network's history, which reached 40 years in 2013.
Childrens Miracle Network
RE/MAX agents believe in investing in the future of Canadian children. RE/MAX associates who display the Miracle Home sign topper on their listed properties are committed to helping local hospitalized children. Those RE/MAX associates have voluntarily pledged a portion of their income from the sale of that home to the Children’s Miracle Network and its 14 member hospitals closest to their community.
RE/MAX associates are very active in their communities and volunteer and hold fundraising events for the Children’s Miracle Network and countless other causes all year long. In fact, every August RE/MAX celebrates a Month of Miracles, whereby we especially thank our clients for helping us raise over $44 million in Canada to help over 2.6 million sick and injured children every year treated at a Children’s Miracle Network member hospital. All funds raised by participating RE/MAX associates are sent directly the children’s hospital.
Since 1992, RE/MAX associates in North America have collectively raised over $115 million for the Children’s Miracle Network member hospitals.
