REMAX history

REMAX: 50 years of real estate success stories in the world and more than 25 in Spain

REMAX, The real estate network that sells the most properties in the world.

Decades of experience making dreams come true.

From an idea on paper to the most reputable brand in real estate, REMAX has grown into a long-standing global organization, helping more families buy and sell homes than any other real estate company in the world. This is our journey:


Humble beginnings. Big ideas. In the US in 1973, Dave and Gail Liniger turned the real estate pyramid upside down with a bold new concept called “real estate maximums” or REMAX: returning hard-earned commissions to agents to retain the best .

Two pioneers: REMAX lands in Europe After bringing REMAX to Canada, Frank Polzler and Walter Schneider are up high and turning their attention to the other side of the pond. The famous red, white and blue balloon lands in Europe for the first time. Offices are beginning to appear in Spain, THANKS to Pioneer Javier Sierra, president of the company in Spain, ushering in a new era of real estate in Europe. Now it is only a matter of time before the REMAX concept takes hold across the continent! In January of that year REMAX opened its first office in Spain. We sold 27 different licenses in Spain during that first year. First time the REMAX balloon has flown in Europe.
