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 No. 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 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 clients’ 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, an International Agent Referral Network, State-of-the-Art Technological Tools, RE/MAX international Internet 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. Locally, RE/MAX donates considerable resources to various local service organizations annually. Our brokerage professionals donate a portion of every sale to help make our world a better place.
