Who is RE/MAX®?
RE/MAX was founded in 1973 by Dave and Gail Liniger, real estate industry visionaries who still lead the Denver-based global franchisor today. RE/MAX is recognized as one of the leading real estate franchise companies with the most productive sales force in the industry and a global reach of more than 80 countries. With a passion for the communities in which its agents live and work, RE/MAX is proud to have raised more than $100 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and other charities. Nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX.
A little about Dave Liniger:
In 1973, Dave Liniger was fairly fresh out of the U.S. Air Force and not too far removed from his rural Indiana boyhood. He had found his niche selling real estate, energized by the gratitude he received from the families he helped.
But as he learned more about his profession, he realized, "There's a better way to do this." Unable to find an office ready for his ideas, he started RE/MAX as a one-agent office in Denver.
His dream was pretty big: Create a real estate organization that any buyer or seller could approach anywhere in the world knowing that only experienced, career-minded professionals worked there - No part-timers. No dabblers. No wheeler-dealers.
The concept, strikingly simple in hindsight, caught on; and the competition never caught up. RE/MAX grew from 21 agents in 1973 to around 90,000 today.
Today, the RE/MAX Balloon stands for trustworthy, results-oriented real estate sales help in more than 80 countries.
RE/MAX Sales Associates help more families buy and sell real estate every year than any other brokerage organization in the world. And this Web site, the first of its kind to display all of the listings in thousands of cities and towns, sets the pace for the industry.
He's still in charge. And he inspires everybody in the organization to keep thinking, "There's a better way to do this."

Home of the Best Agents®
RE/MAX agents average more sales than other real estate agents. They are better qualified to set the right price for the homes they list, better equipped to market those homes, and 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 Kelly Cockerham, buyers can rest easy.

RE/MAX CELEBRATES 38 YEARS
DENVER, CO – One of the largest real estate franchises in the world is celebrating its 38th anniversary and a year of significant success despite a challenging housing market. This month, RE/MAX and its Co-Founders, Dave and Gail Liniger, celebrate a year of remarkable achievements and Founder’s Day, the day RE/MAX was created.
In 2010, RE/MAX worldwide franchise sales were up nearly 30% from the previous year and RE/MAX agents were ranked the most productive in the industry by two notable industry surveys.
“It’s been an exhilarating ride, through the ups and downs of every type of market imaginable,” said RE/MAX Chairman Dave Liniger who pioneered the maximum commission concept when he opened his first RE/MAX office in 1973, forever changing the face of real estate. “We’ve accomplished a lot of things in 38 years but by far our greatest success is having an impassioned network of the most professional agents in the business helping buyers and sellers around the world. They’re making a difference every day and I couldn’t be more proud of their accomplishments.”
RE/MAX is now in more than 80 countries around the world, a presence greater than any of its competitors, and building on four decades of tradition, the global network continues to set the pace for the real estate industry. Most notably, Liniger and RE/MAX CEO Margaret Kelly have been instrumental in shaping the housing recovery and government policies. Kelly serves on the Federal Reserve Board and Liniger was named one of BusinessWeek Magazine’s 50 Most Powerful People in Real Estate 2010. And both RE/MAX executives were named to Inman News’ 2010 Top 100 Most Influential Real Estate Leaders list.
