We are also a family…made friends around the world

RE/MAX REALTORS® are competitive but we are also a family. Through attendance at conventions I have improved my skills, surpassed my goals and made friends around the world. We all know there are some great agents in every real estate company, the difference at RE/MAX is simply that there are a higher percentage of great agents there. You can only get better at what you do if you surround yourself with the best ideas and the most capable REALTORS® – your colleagues at RE/MAX will challenge you to succeed & strive to be better.

We interviewed five different brokers from five different RE/MAX offices

Before we chose RE/MAX River City, we actually interviewed five different brokers from five different RE/MAX offices and none had the same personality, none had the same location, efficiency with the conveyancing team and administration. These are the reasons we chose RE/MAX River City and that is the reason that other agents should choose them as well.

Surround yourself with the best to be the best

I know you’re influenced by the company you keep, so I wanted to keep company with top-producing agents. I wanted to learn from the best. Plus, the RE/MAX mindset rewards people who innovate and share great ideas. And that’s what I’m all about.

I came back to RE/MAX River City…

I came back to RE/MAX River City because I wanted to work with a brokerage that was properly run with a professional and knowledgeable team. There is something to be said about experience, not only as an agent, but as a broker. I want to offer my clients the best and to do this I need the best beside me.

…Like a long bike ride with the wind at your back.

As we approach the final stretch of my first full calendar year at RE/MAX River City, I’m finding myself being on track for one of my best years in my 31 -year career in real estate.
I think it’s appropriate to say to you that I attribute much of this year’s success to the support systems and resources provided by the brokerage under your leadership. Everything from the top down-from getting advice from you on how to deal with potentially-tricky situations, to the helpful, well-trained administration, conveyancing, social media, transaction coordinators, front-end and other support staff have helped me and Catherine service our clients more efficiently and easily.
If a real estate career was a long bike ride, a real estate career at REMAX River City would be like a long bike ride with the wind at your back. You still have to do the work, but the tailwind makes the ride more enjoyable and less exhausting!

…not all brokerages are alike

I came to this office from another RE/MAX brokerage because not all brokerages are alike. River City offers one-on-one mentorship and industry-leading training, but even more important to me was (and is) the culture: one of agent-to-agent support and encouragement, continual growth, and exceptional generosity in our community.

#1 office in Edmonton

Carolyn Knispel - Testimonial

Being client sensitive, I wanted to be associated with an international company with top REALTORS® nationwide to recommend looking after my clients that are relocating. RE/MAX was the only choice. Interviewing other offices within Edmonton, I quickly knew that this office offers many advantages. Central location with plenty of parking for clients, continual up to date training/industry updates, great support staff and colleagues who are serious about our business and willing to share success ideas within the office. It was a good choice! It is no wonder that we, at RE/MAX River City, have been the #1 office in Edmonton. I’m glad to be associated with River City.

The people at REMAX River City are what make it so great

As I started my profession in real estate, I felt it was imperative that I start things off on the right foot, in the right brokerage. I spent the next month interviewing nearly 20 brokers and REALTORS to help me make the best decision. When it was all said and done, REMAX River City was the best fit for three reasons: the REMAX brand; everyone was so friendly and welcoming; and the Mentorship Program.
The REMAX brand. Everyone knows the brand and what it represents. Need I say more?
Like any community, the people at REMAX River City are what make it so great. From the moment you set foot in the place your welcomed by friendly, smiling and helpful staff. As I meet others in the office, I began to see a pattern. The River City team shared the same spirit. That thoughtful, caring energy was clearly present in the office leadership. This is likely why River City has the mentorship program and it was my tipping point to join the team.
The River City mentorship program was invaluable to me. It really felt like it was “all hands on deck” to assist me in getting things off the ground. I was able to act more confidently knowing that the extra support was available. Consequently, my first handful of sales happened more quickly and with less stress. Careers in real estate takes years to nurture, however, the mentorship program not only accelerated my developed but reinforced that at REMAX River City I’m not alone. I’m part of thoughtful, professional, kick-ass team.
