A network where everyone can grow
The familiar red, white and blue RE/MAX Hot Air Balloon can now be found in 35 countries across Europe, with more than 17,000 agents working in over 1,700 offices.
More European countries on their way to the top
The European RE/MAX family has grown considerably by now and the following countries have joined the three pioneers: Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK.
The balloon is ready to take off
RE/MAX lands in Europe. Walter J. Schneider and Frank J. Polzler bring the hot air balloon across the big pond. One year later the RE/MAX sign begins to appear in real estate offices in Spain, Israel and Italy.
Two great minds, one vision
RE/MAX is born. Gail and Dave Liniger, two 20-something real estate agents from Denver, Colorado, decide to develop a new real estate concept. They create RE/MAX, an acronym for "real estate maximums", a system where quality agents would keep a maximum proportion of their commissions and enjoy the freedom to run their business as they saw fit.
The RE/MAX Story
Our history – your future
Started by two real estate agents in their 20s with a pen and pad in 1973, RE/MAX has since grown into a vast, global organization. Our sales associates help more families to buy and sell real estate every year than any other brokerage company in the world.
