RE/MAX A Success Story Unequaled in Modern Business History When RE/MAX began more than 40 years ago, all the founders Dave and Gail Liniger could offer other agents was a simple, yet powerful concept: instead of paying your company huge percentages of your commission check, equitably share expenses with other agents, and keep 100% of your commission. For a while, it didn’t look as though RE/MAX would survive. But they did. And then they did more than survive—they began to thrive. Now, RE/MAX is the undisputed No.1 real estate company in the world. RE/MAX now offers not just a compensation model, but the full spectrum of benefits agents most often want: market share, technology, training, great facilities, supportive staff and management, top brand name, advertising penetration, referrals and leads, and leadership into the future. The idea that was started 45+ years ago has now resulted in RE/MAX setting the standard in the industry. When agents move to RE/MAX, they rarely leave. The reason? When an agent honestly looks at the trade-off between true costs and benefits, the RE/MAX business model excels. From the very beginning, RE/MAX set out to attract the most experienced, highest producing sales associates in real estate. Now with training and mentor programs, RE/MAX has grown from a single top producer to over 100,000 associates in 98 countries during the past few decades.

Community Involvement “As a company we are dedicated to enriching many organizations locally and globally through partnerships, volunteer efforts, and community events. Our amazing agents and staff volunteer countless hours and donate financially year after year. We work hard to give back to our local communities and organizations across the world.� - Chad Ochsner, RE/MAX Alliance President, Broker/Owner


Community Involvement

Children’s Miracle Network RE/MAX Associates generated more than $8 million in donations last year alone. Said Carolynn Bond, former liaison to Children’s Miracle Network for RE/MAX International, “Our business is about more than just buying or selling homes. Our business is to care for families, and what better way to show that care and concern than to support Children’s Miracle Network.” RE/MAX Alliance associates raised over $116,000 through Honor Card, Miracle Home Programs and our Annual Golf Tournaments in 2015. RE/MAX Alliance is the number one contributing organization in the Rocky Mountain Region, where 100% of our donations stay in the local community, benefiting Children’s Hospital and National Jewish Research Center.

Honor Card Program By making a $25 donation to Children’s Miracle Network in honor of a client, you give desperately ill children hope for the future. The gift recipient will receive a CMN-RE/MAX card that explains where the gift came from and what it means. Once a month you will receive a letter from the CMN office listing the names of the clients who received an Honor Card. This special gift makes a unique and lasting impression. Both you and your client will have the satisfaction of knowing that together, you have reached children in need. And your gift is tax deductible! This is a great opportunity for one last follow up with your client. Essentially, this program offers advertising to your client from a third party. You’ll benefit from the referrals this program will generate!

Miracle Home Program The Miracle Home program enables RE/MAX Affiliates to participate in a worthy cause and have positive impact on their individual business. Agents simply pledge to make a contribution for every real estate transaction. With the Miracle Home Program, the amount you contribute per transaction is up to you, however there is a $10 minimum. How to sign up - it’s easy! Fill out the CMN Pledge form (available from your office administrator) and THAT’S IT! You’re done! Your office will then coordinate with the folks at CMN for your donations. As an agent, you simply need to decide which program you would liek to support, and how much money you would like to donate per transaction. Once you’ve signed up the program literally runs itself!

Community Involvement

Everyone deserves a safe home. Every dollar donated goes directly to funding homes in Haiti. Thousands of families in Haiti were left living in temporary tents following the earthquake in 2010. Today, many of those families are still living in tents without running water, sanitation systems, or actual shelter. Without basic needs like this it’s next to impossible to go to work or school or make any improvements in your day-to-day life.

We can write their new story.

It starts with a home...

For locals, by locals


A home changes everything. Sustainable, and affordable, we can build a home in Haiti for just $6,000.

New Story Charity works with local vendors and workers for the entire construction process.

All funds go directly to building homes. You receive video proof once the home is built and the family moves in.

Join Us!

Questions & Myths

Questions & Myths

The Bills are too high! This myth has been passed around the industry for years. RE/MAX is based on a maximum commission concept. Agents share expenses and keep the maximum amount of their commissions. This is customary for independent contractors in other industries. Under this arrangement, agents will always pay less of a business expense on an annualized basis. They look at the short term. They focus on when they pay, rather than how much. If you choose a brokerage using a traditional split system, you generally will pay more annually. The difference is that under traditional split arrangements the financial risk is shifted to the company and they must average a higher average return per agent than in a maximum commission company. In this business model, lower producing agents or new agents are subsidized by higher producing agents. All professional real estate companies have overhead to meet, and they know what they need to collect from their agents to meet it and make a profit. This is why in a traditional split scenario, as long as you are closing about ten sides a year or more, you will always pay more. Always! Our unprecedented growth and success with experienced agents is testimony to this.

Does RE/MAX hire new agents and do they have training? “RE/MAX only hires existing agents and not new”. In the beginning, 45 years ago, this was true. This was one of the organizing principles. RE/MAX only hired “all stars.” Hard working agents realized they were paying too much back to their broker when they worked on a percentage basis and discovered the benefits of working with other top agents at RE/MAX. By raising the hiring standards above the industry and demonstrating a system that helped agents achieve greater levels of success, RE/MAX avoided high turnover and a bad reputation for poor customer service. Things are different now. Training is now a necessity. The real estate sales industry is attracting more second-career agents than ever before. Professionals whose previous employers have been downsized are looking for new career paths. The average agent is now about 55 years old. College graduates are choosing real estate as their primary career path, rather than a second job. RE/MAX Alliance offers full training for newly licensed associates and a mentor program that includes one-on-one coaching, utilizing professionally produced audio, visual and printed materials. In addition, agents have access to RE/MAX University, with hours of 24/7 streaming educational content viewable online. In addition, RE/MAX Alliance provides many educational opportunities, some with CE credits on a monthly basis. For the new agents, we offer a transitional commission structure. There is no high monthly bill or high office overhead to worry about. But we expect you to work toward a base of business compatible with a maximum commission system. We are seeking full-time real estate professionals. We are dedicated to helping you succeed in your new career. 38

Questions & Myths

Is there a “team” environment at RE/MAX Alliance? RE/MAX has the best possible environment for shared values because our agents are united by their personal business philosophies, not what the company dictates. It is one of the best possible environments for associates because they are able to run their businesses without interference from big brother. We do not tell you where to advertise, the commission to charge, how to pay your team, or how to set-up your finances. This ability to operate independent of management binds our agents together in a way not offered by the competition. The RE/MAX annual convention routinely draws close to 10,000 agents. Ask any national trainer what company they do more business with, what agents invest more in themselves, and they will tell you, without question, RE/MAX is the backbone of their business. Our agents invest more in themselves and rely on each other more for sharing ideas, referrals, and motivation. Our people have a shared vision and guiding principles about their business. This is the strongest team, because it is bound by choice, not directive.

Is RE/MAX Alliance a full service company? RE/MAX Alliance has not only invested heavily in its infrastructure to support its agents, it has outpaced the competition because we have the ability to hear from the best in the business—other RE/MAX organizations and our parent company, RE/MAX, LLC. We service our agents in all facets of the business, from inputting listings to auditing files, to setting up showings. Our staff to agent ratio is among the highest in the market, and our staff turnover among the lowest. We have sophisticated company software to generate reports which assist agents in monitoring their business plans. We provide high–tech classroom capability. We support your marketing and advertising needs with in-house coordination and print discounts. We have on-site technology support, our own server and of course high-speed internet services. We could list more facts to dispel this myth. We also do more with less. RE/MAX Alliance is operated efficiently and returns a much higher percentage of agent’s company shared commission dollars back into the business. We do not charge our agents on a percentage basis, the net effect of which is penalizing top agents. We do not have mandatory meetings or requirements for you to use a certain lender or title company. We don’t promise you profits we don’t have and we don’t mandate the commission YOU charge. At RE/MAX Alliance you have all the benefits of a full service company without the interference that often goes with it.

RE/MAX has the best possible environment for shared values because our agents are united by their personal business philosophies, not what the company dictates.


Questions & Myths

In A Nutshell Commission Structure • The RE/MAX high compensation concept first attracted top-producing agents to RE/MAX and caused competitors to re-examine their traditional commission structures.

Associate Flexibility • RE/MAX Associates have the freedom to make core business decisions that keep them in control of their days and their futures, something not often found at other organizations.

Be Your Own Boss • Associates set their own income goals and schedules at RE/MAX. With RE/MAX, Associates can reduce their work hours without reducing their earnings, or work longer hours and increase their earnings. And with its dedication to promoting life balance, the network encourages Associates to play just as hard as they work.

Choose Your Expertise • RE/MAX Associates have the freedom to pursue any listings or sales specialties that pique their interest. The RE/MAX Web Roster lists dozens of residential and commercial specialty areas, such as luxury homes or land development, that Associates can declare.

Advertise on Your Terms • RE/MAX Associates choose how to market themselves to their communities and their clients. At RE/MAX, the Associate – not the Broker/Owner – determines how much to spend on individual advertising and personal promotion. And with RE/MAX, Associates receive the leads they generate.

Negotiate Your Commission Rates • Sales agents at other companies are often required to follow pre-established commission rates. Not at RE/MAX. Here, brokerages empower Associates to negotiate commission rates with clients.

Operate a Team • When you’re running your real estate sales business as a true business, the growth can quickly exceed one individual’s capabilities. RE/MAX pioneered agents’ use of licensed and unlicensed assistants, partners and teams. Today, some of the most successful agent-led sales teams in the industry call RE/MAX home.

Sources of Business • Thanks to a combination of professional experience, high commissions and attention to repeat and referral business, many RE/MAX Associates have a multitude of satisfied customers. • This repeat and referral base can help RE/MAX Associates withstand shifts in the real estate market. When a local market slows down, an agent with a solid contact base is prepared to weather the rocky times.

With the maximum commission concept of RE/MAX Alliance you’ll... • Have the knowledge and security in knowing your financial horizons are unrestricted and unlimited • Know that you truly have a return on your investment • Truly know the freedom you felt when you first chose a real estate career 40

A Few Last Words

A Few Last Words The Right Move The ultimate goal of most real estate professionals is a long, prosperous, enjoyable career. Realtors are uniquely fortunate in the sense that this goal can further be enhanced by the potential of unlimited earnings. Very few careers offer all these benefits.
