RE/MAX awarded #1 in homebuyer and home seller satisfaction by J.D. Power & Associates consumer survey
My wife and Real Estate partner Ruby and I attended the annual RE/MAX North Central Fall Conference and Vendor Show on October 12, 2011. This large event is typically help both in Wisconsin and Minnesota, and this year at the St Paul River Center. We always look forward to this full day event, and are always inspired by the articulate speakers, education breakout sessions, and great networking. This year marked several exciting, personal and professional milestones for us. I celebrate my 21st year with the RE/MAX Network, 20 years with RE/MAX Results 25 years as an agent, while Ruby celebrated her 11th year with RE/MAX Results. Being associated with RE/MAX Results and its brilliant, successful Broker owners and close friends, has been both rewarding, and enlightening. Despite recent downturns in Real Estate market, the continued growth, success, and rapidly increasing market share in the Metro Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St Paul has now positioned RE/MAX as the # 1 home seller, based on the number of home sale transactions generated annually.
We are delighted to have personally assisted nearly 500 individuals, families, relocation employees, and investors, to fulfill dreams and goals of home and Real Estate ownership. 2011 marks a milestone for nearly 90 thousand RE/MAX agents in 6290 offices in 85 countries with two J.D. Power & Associates Awards. Selling more Real Estate than any other company in the world is no simple task, and an accomplishment that we have always been honored to be a small part of. But there is another, and significantly more important part of our work that is the real story behind the success of RE/MAX and RE/MAX Results 25 independently franchised offices, and that is customer service. It has been the core of my mission statement since the very beginning 25 years ago. We are, and will always be dedicated to, as Ruby and I put it: “World-Class, Superior Personal Service” To actually hold these awards was humbling and difficult, since we played only a tiny roll in earning them, and the things were really, really heavy to hold up for the picture! Whew!
