It’s a well-respected real estate name locally and is part of a 100-country-plus global giant, but the spotlight is all on RE/MAX Gold this month as it celebrates its fifteenth year making Gladstone Region property dreams a reality.
Opening in 2003 under the stewardship of long time real estate identities, Jeff and Karen Williams, the RE/MAX model was new to the local real estate industry.
RE/MAX Gold’s Shane McLeod explains.
“It was a concept that had been, and remains to be, hugely successful overseas having started in Denver, Colorado in 1973.
“The RE/MAX model empowered its agents to take control of their business, keep more of their hard earned money in their pockets and working for them. It unlocked the hold most traditional agencies held over their agents, to better serve the needs of sellers and buyers in the Gladstone market.”
As it turned out, the success of that agent model resulted in another of the lifetime members of the office, Mr McLeod, buying into the business and continuing the legacy today. Twenty-seven year property management veteran, Cyndi Ward, also partnered the Williams family and has steered the property management business to success for the last thirteen years.
“The success of our business truly lies with the calibre of the people we have working with us,” he said.
“We have long term rental employees who love what they do – and they do it very well – and the sales team is made of passionate, ethical professionals who have stood the test of time in good and tough markets.
“I couldn’t be prouder of the business we have here, and people we consider to be family not just staff; and as our office moves into another period of growth and prosperity for the Gladstone Region, we thank the local community and clients from all over the globe for their continuing support.
“The last fifteen years serving the real estate industry have been fantastic, and we look forward to many more,” said Mr McLeod
