I moved to RE/MAX Associates over 12 years ago. I had worked with Bob Jacobs, the owner, over the years and I had great respect for him. He is an owner, commited 100% to the development of his agents and the brokerage. He has accumulated the best and the brightest in the industry, and I wanted to be affiliated with that kind of brokerage. His sacrifice, which was not apparent to me when I joined, but I quickly realized, is to the detriment of himself. Bob does not list and sell, hence he does not compete with his agents. If there is something Bob can do for his agents, he works tirelessly to find a way to make it happen. I have been affiliated with the most respected real estate brand, RE/MAX, since 2002, and I am PROUD to be a member and affiliated with RE/MAX Associates.
I chose to leave the previous brokerage for RE/MAX Associates for several reasons. I sat down with Bob Jacobs, the Broke,r and discussed the benefits of RE/MAX, and would it be a good fit. I felt after hearing the potential growth opportunities and tools available to make my business better, I made a decision to leave. I have not regreted making a brokerage change to RE/MAX, ever! 2. RE/MAX has great agent support from the Corporate office to our local office. I appreciate the programs offered to help make an agent more successful and better equipped to handle the day to day challenge of real estate. RE/MAX offers to all agents the cutting edge technology tools to be competitive and well-equipped. 3. I love my local RE/MAX office (RE/MAX Associates). I felt welcome from the first day. It is a very friendly, family-oriented environment. There is always someone available to help with a problem, Bob is a very involved broker who always makes sure we are equipped to handle any given situation. Encourages following NAR Core Values, and participation in TREPAC. Our office agent events are always a lot of fun. Sometimes just meeting after office hours, talking, laughing and maybe partaking in some wine and just getting to know each other better. We have fun parties during the year, sometimes luncheon on the parking lot, holiday parties at a beautiful venue.
