This week, we're celebrating 20 years as a RE/MAX Approved Supplier. As a result of this long-standing partnership — which began Jan. 30, 1996 — RE/MAX agents receive the very best that Magnets USA has to offer, including discounted pricing, company-approved designs, a tailored webpage and a dedicated team of personal representatives.
One of those representatives is Alan Dever, who's been working with RE/MAX agents since 2008.
"I'm privileged to get to work with them." Alan said. "I've learned so much about the industry, the brand and have not only made long-lasting business relationships, but actual friendships with many RE/MAX agents. RE/MAX is a unique real estate company — and No. 1 in the world for a reason."
Like the rest of our RE/MAX team, Alan travels to several conferences a year, meeting customers face-to-face and absorbing the company culture.
One of his most memorable moments occurred at the 2013 R4 Conference Opening Session, where co-founder Dave Liniger shared his story about battling MRSA.
"The audience hung onto every word," Alan said. "It was a moving message about not giving up, which he correlated with then then-struggling real estate market. He ended his speech with powerful words of encouragement, advice and stood up out of his wheelchair and walked off the stage. It was amazing, and I was honored to be there that evening."
It's moments like these — and countless others — that make our jobs and these partnerships so worthwhile.
Cheers to 20 more years, RE/MAX!
