Company Information

Dave and Gail Liniger founded RE/MAX in Denver, Colorado in 1973. RE/MAX has grown every single month for more than 40+ years to a company with over 6019 offices located in 100+ territories and countries. To date, RE/MAX employs over 120,000 associates worldwide.

RE/MAX has been the #1 residential real estate network in Canada since 1987 and is a leading industry force in the United States and many other regions. Locally, RE/MAX holds the largest market share in the Sarasota area.

The most significant growth for RE/MAX in recent years has come from outside of the United States, with expansion into Africa, the Caribbean, Central America, Europe, Mexico, New Zealand and South America.

RE/MAX’s exclusive Marketing System represents the company’s ongoing commitment to meeting and exceeding the customer’s expectations. The advertising and public relations campaigns are designed to create a strategic real estate marketing plan for home buyers and sellers alike, rather than simply traditional techniques used by the majority of real estate professionals.

Some of the innovative services offered by RE/MAX on a local and international level include the RE/MAX Collection Fine Homes and Luxury Properties Program, Relocation Management, Property Management, Asset Management, Commercial Investment, and International Agent Referral Network, State-of-the-Art Technological Tools, RE/MAX International website, and national television advertising campaigns.

RE/MAX demonstrates a strong sense of community. Nationally, RE/MAX is an avid supporter of the Children’s Miracle Network helping to raise over $157 million for children’s hospitals throughout North America and RE/MAX is one of the top three donors of all time. RE/MAX continues to support the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation dedicated to advanced breast cancer research. As of 2018, $240 million has been donated to the cause by real estate agents within the company. Locally, RE/MAX donates considerable resources to various other local service organizations annually. Our brokerage professionals donate a portion of every sale to this cause to help make our world a better place. Our team personally donates a portion of our commission to Jill and Justin’s Place, a faith based addiction recovery program supported by St. Matthew’s House Homeless Shelter in Naples, Florida.


Our office: The Cavanagh’s founded the RE/MAX Tropical Sands franchise office, which is located on the well-known barrier island of Siesta Key in Sarasota, Florida. Anne has been with our office since its inception in 2005! She likes being a part of a national real estate company that stands behind their reputation. RE/MAX is a real estate household brand name. The benefit of working with a national company is we work directly with our affiliate RE/MAX offices to transition our customers when they come to the area or move out of the area. This way our customers know they are in good hands.

Our office is located directly across the street from the famous soft white sugary fine-quartz sandy beaches and pristine aqua-blue waters on Siesta Key! Anne and her team love this location because our office attracts buyers from all over the United States and around the world. Siesta Key is a tourist destination. People come back every year to stop by our office and browse the listings in the windows and see the amazing beaches.

If you are a seller, our office location serves as an advantage for you because it’s a great place to find vacation buyers who are dreaming about relocating to the tropics. We get to post our listings on our office store front windows. Many buyers walk into our office every day looking for property in the Sarasota and Manatee County areas.

If you are a buyer, our home selling team is ready to help you find that perfect property. We will gladly show you vacation properties, waterfront properties, golf community properties, acreage properties, equestrian properties, short sale properties, bank-owned properties, vacant land, and estate or fine home properties. We are ready to serve you and make your dreams come true!
