Global real estate franchise RE/MAX has reached significant milestones expanding its international influence. As part of a continuing global initiative, two master franchise sales and an improved online experience for global.remax.com visitors kicked off the first quarter.
“RE/MAX is the most productive real estate network and we’re always looking for new, vibrant ways to expand international opportunities on behalf of our franchisees and consumers,” said Larry Oberly, Vice President, Global Development of RE/MAX, LLC.
“Our growth around the world is due to the strength of the RE/MAX business model, which attracts entrepreneurial minded people with a variety of business backgrounds.”
In the first quarter of 2016, RE/MAX sold two master franchises in Malaysia and Myanmar.
Andre Keller and Alex Gomez, region owners of RE/MAX Malaysia, are planning the opening of their first regional office in Kuala Lumpur. The duo plans to focus on working with younger professionals to provide career opportunities rooted in an innovative network, international brand power and advanced technology.
RE/MAX Myanmar co-Region Owners Joseph Khoo, Ken Lim, Stephen Lee, Darrit Cho and Kaung Myat are expecting to establish a regional office in Yangon, the country’s economic center. The group, with strong ties to RE/MAX Singapore, is looking forward to expanding the American-based franchise model, while creating higher professional standards within the local real estate community.
These recent global successes come on the heels of a successful 2015. Last year, four countries joined the RE/MAX network propelling the total number of RE/MAX agents outside the U.S. and Canada to more than 25,000, an annual growth of 15.4 percent. RE/MAX now has more offices in more countries than any other real estate brand.
