FAQs


1. When has RE/MAX been founded?

Dave and Gail Liniger founded RE/MAX in Denver, Colorado in 1973, prompted by their dissatisfaction with the way real estate was conducted. Today RE/MAX has over 100,000 agents operating in more than 6,800 offices in over 98 countries. The network's streamlined management system means problems are anticipated, and decisions are implemented quickly, efficiently and effectively to help you sell or let your property.

2. What does the RE/MAX business model look like?

RE/MAX has assembled a wealth of business-building systems and resources, including global brand name awareness, on-demand training and education, global lead and referral generation systems and leading-edge technology. These valuable resources become available your first day at RE/MAX and were designed to help you grow your business both as an agent and office owner.

3. Can I alienate my franchise license and business?

It is a standard procedure in franchise that any possible party entering your business has to be approved by RE/MAX.

4. Does the Licensing system require previous estate agency experience?

No, everything you will have to know about the UK property industry can be found within the RE/MAX system. In fact we do have as many successful Franchisees without any previous property experience, as we have former property professionals on board. However, having previous experience in property might help you to set-up your business in a shorter time.

5. What is the realistic working capital needed?

By guess, you will need an amount of approximately GBP 100.000 to GBP 150.000 depending on the location of the office. The figure consists of the following components: Franchise fee, training, office fitting, working capital for the start-up phase and fixed ongoing costs of your company.

The duration of the agreement is five years.
