Why use RE/MAX? When you choose a RE/MAX Sales Associate to sell your home or help you in the home buying process, you'll experience an exemplary level of service.
First, RE/MAX Associates are The Hometown Experts With a World of Experience®. They are the most knowledgeable agents who have the experience and community connections to assist you in the home buying process. Across the globe, they make their living in the same communities in which they live. They're the people next door, or just down the block.
Consummate professionals, RE/MAX Associates on average lead agents affiliated with competing brands in advanced real estate education and production. That's why customers going through the home buying process know RE/MAX Associates as The Real Estate Leaders® and why no one in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX.
Customer Satisfaction The proof of quality service is in repeat customers and in customers who refer RE/MAX Associates to friends who are embarking on the home buying process. RE/MAX Sales Associates average 70 percent of their business from repeats and referrals, while other agents average about 30 percent from those sources.
Education RE/MAX Associates lead agents of competing brands in professional designations, which represent specialized training and education. These designations - some geared toward clients in the home buying process and toward others who are selling - set RE/MAX Associates apart from the rest of the crowd. They dominate the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), Certified Relocation Professional (CRP), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) ranks
Miracle Home® Program Why list your home with a RE/MAX Associate? Your home may be designated as a Miracle Home®. If it is, your RE/MAX Sales Associate will make a contribution during the home buying process to the local hospital affiliated with Children's Miracle Network once the transaction is complete. The funds raised in your community remain in the area to benefit local families. Sold for the CureTM Mirroring the Miracle Home Program, Sold for the Cure gives your RE/MAX Sales Associate the opportunity to designate your home as a Sold for the Cure property to benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Upon completion of the transaction, your RE/MAX agent will make a donation to the local Komen Affiliate to help support the breast cancer movement. Programs like these make the home buying process an even sweeter deal for buyers who are indirectly contributing to the Komen mission of finding a cure for breast cancer. For All You're Worth® On average, RE/MAX Associates sell more real estate than other agents. They are better qualified to set the right price for the homes they list, are better equipped to market those homes, and are likely to find clients engaged in the home buying process in a shorter period of time. That experience and education also means they are better qualified to find the right home for any buyer. The home buying process can be a daunting task, but with the expertise of a RE/MAX Associate, buyers can rest easy.

Personal advertising plus national television advertising and Internet exposure generates the highest number of prospects in the home buying process and sales market.
