RE/MAX honored for commitment to military families

The RE/MAX franchise has announced that it has been named a Top Ten Military Spouse Friendly Employer by Military Spouse magazine for the fourth year in a row. According to the information provided, this year's Top Ten was selected from a pool of more than 2,500 large companies and RE/MAX is the only real estate company to make the list.

Dave Liniger, RE/MAX Co-Founder and Chairman of the Board, commented, "Military spouses make excellent, dedicated employees. They are sacrificing for our country, and RE/MAX hopes to make the lives of military families a bit easier at a most difficult time."

The company’s military employment program, Operation RE/MAX, has been helping military spouses and former military personnel find jobs in real estate for the past four years. Created in cooperation with the Department of Defense, the program matches members of the military community with volunteer RE/MAX brokers, who have made a commitment to coach, train and mentor military personnel.

As a result of the success of Operation RE/MAX, the company was honored with the Office of the Secretary of Defense Exceptional Public Service Award in 2007. The prestigious award is one of the highest given to civilians, and was presented to Gail Liniger, Co-Founder and Vice Chairman of the Board, in a special Pentagon ceremony.

Operation RE/MAX has earned the cooperation of over 500 military installations and enlisted the support of more than 700 individual RE/MAX offices. Most importantly, it has placed more than 1,100 military spouses in jobs all over the world.

"Military spouses have a desire to perform well, a dedication to get the job done, and they honor their commitments," says Liniger. "In the real estate profession, military spouses have a built-in clientele because they have a personal relationship with many families who are moving regularly and trust them."

RE/MAX was founded in 1973 by Dave and Gail Liniger. From a single office in Denver, Colorado, it has grown into a global network of nearly 100,000 Sales Associates in more than 75 countries, an international presence greater, it says, than any of its competitors. (kbp)
