Looking Through The Front Windshield
One thing in common with all great companies; they create WOW impressions, a memorable experience and a well satisfied consumer. Today, it is harder than ever to achieve this kind of results, but the entire RE/MAX Town Centre Organization continues to strive for excellence.
The business philosophy and creativity of The Disney Company, Starbuck Coffee and the W Hotel organization was the benchmark for the re-branding efforts of RE/MAX Town Centre, the remodel of our flagship office, the design of our new website and our updated creative marketing material. Basically, after 10 years, it was time to RE/INVENT ourselves….New Look…New Technology…New Marketing…New Ways. The real estate industry has changed, and as entrepreneurs, we must RE-IGNITE, RE-DESIGN & RE-ALLIGN ourselves, always looking to improve and position ourselves for the years ahead.
The new RE/MAX Town Centre launched new marketing tag lines, “ A World Class Leader In Global Real Estate” and “EXPERIENCE COUNTS…….RESULTS DEFINE US”. Both of these tag lines will be used as well as our new logo design.
A Clear Vision
This year we are we are celebrating what we have as a team….a team of seasoned professionals; and to be part of an organization that is home grown, and although not perfect…. one that I am very proud of. Our organization is very fortunate to have the most powerful aircraft in the world flying us through this economic storm, and that aircraft is called RE/MAX.
We are an elite team of “World Class” Realtors with the “drive to succeed and the conviction to get there first”. The real estate industry is being redefined as RE/MAX Town Centre sets the stage for the new standards of performance. I am very proud to say that over the 10 yrs, RE/MAX Town Centre has become The City’s Most Celebrated Real Estate Company.
As you can see I have been a very busy Broker working sometimes as late as 4 am! Someone told me that I am relentless ….never giving up even when I was faced with the US economic tsunami. With all of this, I personally wish to thank each and every one of you individually for sticking with me over the recent 5 years. It has been a challenging time for all of us and I am truly honored to be your Broker, Leader, Mentor and the Visionary-Founder of RE/MAX Town Centre.
