Whether buying or selling your home, you have several decisions to make.

Should you work with a REALTOR®? Which real estate company will provide the best value? Which REALTOR® within that company will be best suited to help you through the process?

We reached out to the RE/MAX Influencers: A panel consisting of RE/MAX Sales Associates from throughout Canada. We asked them: Why should a consumer work with RE/MAX when he/she has so many options out there?

The Brand

Chances are, you would have a hard time finding someone who has never heard of “RE/MAX.” With 100,000 Sales Associates in nearly 100 countries worldwide, the RE/MAX name—along with the iconic balloon—represents a professional organization that has become an industry leader.

RE/MAX also advertises through many mediums, including: Television, print, online and physical signs such as NHL rink boards. This high level of exposure will go to work for you when listing your property. Many RE/MAX Sales Associates are also affiliated with the Children’s Miracle Network; therefore, the sale of a RE/MAX Miracle Home will help support your local children’s hospital. According to ComScore, RE/MAX Canada also leads other real estate brands with its significant traffic to remax.ca.

“In an uncertain market, consumers become less speculative. Instead, they rely on proven brands to reinforce their efforts to manage one of their most important investments. They rely on the experience and expertise that has made RE/MAX one of the most recognizable brands in the real estate world.”

Sales Associates

RE/MAX Sales Associates have the experience to get the job done in today’s market.

The vast majority of our membership are full-time agents who are experts in their local communities. They work hard and are committed to help their clients through the home buying or selling process. *RE/MAX agents sell more real estate than any other Canadian brand.

“RE/MAX is often a collection of the top REALTORS® in any given marketplace. RE/MAX also has an international network: This type of network could be where the buyer of my client’s home comes from.”

How To Visually Increase Your Small Kitchen

January 9th, 2018 by purrfect-properties

Small houses may be the latest trend, but it seems as if most homeowners still want, or at least the impression of, a large kitchen. If your room is 70 square feet or less, you now know that you have a “small” kitchen.

You may be feeling claustrophobic in your tiny workspace, but before you tackle a major renovation, it’s time to clean out all those non-essential items that have been taking up extra space. When was the last time you used that bread maker? Time to donate it to a better cause. Do you really need three gravy ladles or five cookbooks? Purging some of under-utilized items should free up some space and make room for those things that you really can use.

Another 5 Star Review for this Edmonton Realtor

Another 5 Star Review for this Edmonton Realtor

Jeanine recently helped us buy our first home in Edmonton and we could not have been more pleased with the process! My partner and I contacted Jeanine initially based on the positive experience I had when I accompanied a friend to look at homes (for her) in Edmonton earlier in 2017. Jeanine came to our first meeting enthusiastic and well prepared, and every interaction we had with her after that was the same. She’s the perfect balance between professionalism and complete honesty which was a real asset given we were first time home buyers.
