[VIP] RE/MAX, Q2/2019: Something’s Gotta Give

After RE/MAX reported last quarter, I wrote a post saying that RE/MAX was poised on the brink of greatness, but was refusing to make the jump. Q2 earnings results do nothing to make me change my mind on that, but now, there are signs that RE/MAX is going to have to make some difficult choices sooner rather than later.

Before we dive in, I should let everyone know that I had the opportunity to visit RE/MAX a couple of months back and have some in-depth conversations with some of the senior executives, including Adam Contos. I won’t use or divulge any of the information learned during that visit, but I will relate that I came away extraordinarily impressed with Contos and the team that he has assembled around him. They’re far from sleepy dinosaurs stuck in the old ways of real estate from 1973. They’re smart, relatively young, energetic, and driven. They all understand the industry, understand the business, understand franchising, understand brokers and agents, and are (once again) poised for greatness.

Managing Partner of 7DS Associates, and the grand poobah of this here blog. Once called "a revolutionary in a really nice suit", people often wonder what I do for a living because I have the temerity to not talk about my clients and my work for clients. Suffice to say that I do strategy work for some of the largest organizations and companies in real estate, as well as some of the smallest startups and agent teams, but usually only on projects that interest me with big implications for reforming this wonderful, crazy, lovable yet frustrating real estate industry of ours.
