Training Sessions, Networking Benefits Boulder Area Families
Twelve Broker Associates from RE/MAX of Boulder attended the RE/MAX R4 Convention in Las Vegas last week, learning the latest real estate techniques and networking with other RE/MAX agents from around the world. They were: D.B. Wilson, Irene Shaffer, Chris Carter, Jill Bryant, Lisa Wade, Peter B. Trost, Art Schwadron, Steve Carter, Duane Duggan, Carolyn Bleicher, Dave Fish and Eric Jacobson. The intensive training and educational sessions focused on helping families facing difficult economic situations and how to best serve real estate buyers and sellers.
“The convention is a huge opportunity to add to your expertise and it’s very important to you, our clients,” said D.B Wilson, Managing Broker. “The more training you have, the better prepared you are to help your buyers and sellers in this market.”
In what is believed to be an unprecedented 5th year in a row, RE/MAX of Boulder was named the Number 1 office in the United States for highest Total Sales Volume, Single Office in 2011.
RE/MAX agents hold the highest number of advanced designations and certifications in the industry, staying on the leading edge of real estate trends. The annual international convention is where many RE/MAX Affiliates take advantage of educational opportunities and it’s also where they make important connections with RE/MAX agents from other states or countries that might have the perfect buyer or seller for Boulder area families.
In January, RE/MAX celebrated its 39th anniversary, celebrating several key accomplishments in 2011. Perhaps the most high profile recognition was the vote of confidence received from consumers.

Power and Associates 2011 Home Buyer/Seller StudySM recognized RE/MAX for providing the “highest overall satisfaction for home sellers and home buyers among national full service real estate firms.”
