Imagine winning the Super Bowl 19 years in a row.
A virtually impossible task.
But RE/MAX Real Estate (Central) in Calgary has done just that in the real estate industry – an incredible feat – by capturing the award as the top producing single RE/MAX office in the world in 2017.
Realtors with the local firm, which began operations in 1984, were involved in 5,046 transactions.
The award was announced at this week’s RE/MAX international R4 Convention in Las Vegas.
The Central office is owned by Patrick and Denise Hare.
“We’ve actually won it 20 times,” says Nick Profeta, Chief Happiness Officer, Manager and Agent with RE/MAX Real Estate (Central). “So we won it in 1997 the first time. We lost it in 1998. And we won it again in 1999 and we’ve won it every year since.
“This year we actually won dollar volume in Canada and we won transactions for the world.”
The office has close to 300 realtors.
“When we won it the first year you could have said it was the Calgary market or the economy or the oil industry. But for us to win it consecutively for 19 years in a row, we know we have top notch staff and agents. The city of Calgary is an incredible city and we owe credit to our clients that choose us,” says Profeta.
“But I feel it’s because of the strong group of people who really believe and care about doing the job the best they can. And what impresses me the most is the collaboration, sharing, engagement between everyone in the office – experienced, young and old. They truly work together. We’ve lost agents. Top agents retire or downsize their business. But still the new people coming in are buying into what we have at Central with our culture and energy. And we’re selling homes and making people happy.”
“Besides that we definitely have a good structure in Calgary, the real estate board, our association and the council as well as the RE/MAX head office and the regional RE/MAX office in Kelowna who have provided support through the years,” says Profeta.
