About RE/MAX

RE/MAX - the world's largest real estate network

Established in 1973, the #1 real estate franchise company, RE/MAX has grown into the world's largest real estate network of franchisee-owned and operated offices, with over 100,000 sales associates in nearly 100 countries. Today, RE/MAX has become the most trusted name in real estate around the world.


Providing Broker Owners and sales associates with the best tools, valuable support and educational opportunities, RE/MAX ensures consistent high standards in real estate services to all our clients. Unlike typical real estate offices, the RE/MAX business concept was founded to attract, retain and develop the best sales associates by offering them maximum compensation and advanced support with state-of-the art services and the freedom to succeed. By earning fair profit, expanding and growing their market share and the opportunity to compete in a changing industry, RE/MAX allows its sales associates and Broker Owners to become leading entrepreneurs and own one of the most succesful franchises in the world. Today, Sakr Real Estate is proud to announce its acquisition of the master franchise of RE/MAX Lebanon, consolidating its positioning as the partner of excellence by building solid business relationships with leading worldwide brands in different sectors.

It all began as a dream and a plan on a pad of paper.

It all started with the introduction of the Real Estate Maximum concept in 1973 by the founders Dave and Gail Liniger, which revolutionized the real estate market. The idea was simple: attracting the best real estate agents by providing various competitive advantages all under the RE/MAX brand. Better commission plans for associates, a unique training system and state-of-the-art technology helped RE/MAX to take off. The idea has since proven highly successful and enabled us to evolve into an extensive international network of real estate professionals.

A family-run business raised RE/MAX to Number One in Europe

In 1995, Walter Schneider and Frank Polzler navigated the RE/MAX balloon to Europe, establishing the European headquarters in Zug, Switzerland and Vienna, Austria. They were the driving force behind the expansion of RE/MAX into the Canadian market in 1980 and 15 years later into Europe. Polzer Polzer Schneider Picture: Frank J.

Today their family-run business represents 30% of RE/MAX worldwide. Born into this family of real estate pioneers, Michael Polzler holds the role of Managing Director of RE/MAX Europe. Pursuing the tried-and-tested system and adding his entrepreneurial spirit and vision, the RE/MAX network in Europe has grown to more than 14,000 agents operating in 32 countries across the continent.
