The holiday season always sparks the bright thoughts of what matters most in our lives. We spend time with loved ones, give back to our communities, reflect and celebrate the year past, and look forward to the New Year.

As Regional Director Fiona Petrie said in her holiday address, to those Brokers, Sales Associates, Owners, Managers and all staff members in our network: thank you for continuing to raise the bar, and going above and beyond in every aspect of your business. Your efforts are unmatched and make it a pleasure to work with each and every one of you.

We’ve been impressed by the strength of our network and its ability to embrace and tackle challenges, as well as continuing to lead the industry as expert real estate agents.

2016 was a busy year in the Midwest! As part of our focus, we continue to increase personalized service from the exceptional regional teams out of the Minneapolis and Indianapolis offices. Additionally, one of the main pillars we repeatedly strive for is innovation and strategically reinvigorating ourselves to stay ahead of the pack. As we celebrate the successes of 2016, let’s take a look a few notable highlights:

  • RE/MAX holds the #1 market share in: 77 cities in Wisconsin; 90 cities in Indiana; 94 cities in Minnesota
  • The newly launched “Go With Those Who Know” marketing campaign reached far and wide: over 417 million outdoor impressions with billboards; over 491,000 print media impressions; over 25 million local and national digital media impressions
  • Midwest RE/MAX Agents saw a year over year increase of: 7.56% in commissions, 8.7% in volume, and 3.6% in transactions
  • RE/MAX continues to fly high above others with over 960,000 total residential transactions in the U.S. and over 104,000 agents worldwide

The New Year will bring forth a new set of challenges and successes, and with that being said, we have no doubt that our network of the most productive and professional brokers, owners and agents will continue to achieve momentum and business growth. We wish you and your families some well-deserved rest and joy this holiday season, and look forward to our work in 2017.

Don’t forget, the RE/MAX INTEGRA Regional Office will be closed from December 23, 2016, and will reopen bright and early in the New Year on January 2nd!

Have a safe and happy holidays!
