Why work with RE/Max

By
Real Estate Agent with Premiere Property Group, LLC 200504175

 Everyone always asks me why I work with Re/Max and why I don't just work for myself.  Well let me tell you why!  Last month I received a lead generated from remax.net and it was a buyer wanting to preview a $1.2 million house that weekend.  I called her and we made the appointment.  I wasn't so sure it was a qualified lead, but when I met them, they were so interested in that home, they wanted to set up a second showing at one of the homes they saw.  I set up the 2nd and then wrote the offer and had it accepted.  The only reason I procured those buyers is because they like the REMAX logo and trusted that a quality agent would respond to their request. 

Then the very next week, I was busy working in our office and we received a walk in!  I was the only one working in the "round" and the secretary asked if I could help this seller.  I met him in the conference room and to my surprise, he needed an agent to sell a 48 unit condo project asap.  He had a previous "no name" agent helping him and needed to have RE/Max help him advertise.  I know this may just sound like crazy luck, but in both instances, both clients needed the Re/Max name to help them in some way.  This is why I pay the desk fee, this is why I work in the office all the time, and this is why I believe that Re/Max is a great company to work for!

I can't say I agree with the working in the office thing, but I definitely agree that people work with Remax agents because they know the name and like the marketing of the brand. Now, if only I could get a million dollar buyer in a market where the median price is $146k and average is $202k.... probably not.

Chanel congratulations. Great things happen at RE/MAX. I've just been with RE/MAX Classic Group for about 7 months. One of my first leads was a walk-in. I listed her home 2 days later.  The RE/MAX name brought her in, the professionalism kept her.

Chanel, I used to work at RE/MAX Realty Group in Ashland, Oregon, but wetn over to the light and opened with my partner, the Ashland Coldwell Banker.  Actually, i find it not the company brand itself, but the people within that make a difference.  Dave Koch is a great person in your organization so that is a big plus for you.

I've been thinking of joining the local Re/max.  Are you aloud to use their logo in your own marketing or on your web site.  Someone mentioned there were a lot of restrictions on marketing?

    I struggle with juggling where to do my business networking. Home seems more conducive to some activities, yet, you can't get a walk in client if you aren't there : ). I do agree that Re-Max has a strong brand name and it does help a lot when you are associated with a strong brand. We should talk more about this kind of thing in person so we can elaborate on all the pro's and con's of being an employee/independent contractor. 

later,
