RE/MAX began operations in Australia in 1997. The company was brought here by two highly-successful and innovative Australian real estate agents and businessmen Peter Hanscomb, Chief Executive and Regional Director, and Don Marion, Queensland Operations Director.
In 1995 Peter Hanscomb, who has more than 22 years experience in real estate, went to the United States looking for a new way of doing business. Like Dave Liniger in 1973, Hanscomb felt Australia typical real estate franchise systems were outdated and that it was time for an industry shake-up. While in the US he discovered RE/MAX and it was a perfect fit.
Since 1997, RE/MAX Australia has experienced excellent growth as more and more agents realise the freedom, profitability and personal growth opportunities available to them at RE/MAX. The first office was opened in Queensland in 1997. Offices in New South Wales and Western Australia followed a few years later. Offices in South Australia opened in 2004 and offices will be opening in Victoria soon.
In 2002, RE/MAX launched a Financial Services Division offering home mortgage and business financing solutions as an added service to our clients. RE/MAX also has specialists in commercial property, auctioneering and business brokering.
RE/MAX now has over 100,000 Associates in 6,275 Offices across 97 Countries.
