About RE/MAX

In January 1973 Dave and Gail Liniger opened their real estate office in Denver, Colorado and in doing so, RE/MAX was born. With a system based on attracting productive agents and providing them with the support they need, brand awareness, opportunities to learn, and other competitive advantages, the Linigers have grown from their single Denver office to a global real estate network of franchisee-owned and operated offices.

While there were those who said it couldn’t be done, the Linigers and their core group continued to build the foundations of the network with hard work, belief, and resolve. In 1975 the first franchised office opened outside Colorado, in Kansas City. Consistently growing at the rate of at least one new franchise office a month RE/MAX continued to attract serious real estate professionals. Then in 1997 RE/MAX went international, when the first Canadian RE/MAX brokerage office opened in Calgary, Alberta.

In 1978, the RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon made its maiden flight at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta, in a promotion conceived by the Regional Director in New Mexico. A year later, the balloon became the network’s official logo; a global brand was born.

1995 launch of RE/MAX Europe and regional operations in Spain, Italy, Germany and Israel. RE/MAX of Southern Africa debuted as well, marking the network’s first move onto the continent. Successful regions in the Caribbean, Australia and elsewhere spread the brand even farther. RE/MAX China is among the newest of the RE/MAX regional frontiers.

RE/MAX celebrated its 40 th anniversary in 2013. Today, the RE/MAX network has more than 100,000 agents in over 100 countries and territories.

The Linigers are still in their leadership roles at RE/MAX World Headquarters in Denver. Their vision, grit and drive have inspired thousands of productive entrepreneurs – the very people they hoped their model would attract – to pursue their own dreams of real estate success.
