Transformation, kindness and productivity were on display at the opener, which encouraged the 6000 plus crowd at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino to continue to help transform lives.
Mr Davoren said the R4 convention gave attendees the opportunity to network, learn from industry leaders and work on professional growth, as well as celebrate the achievements of the network.
The theme of transformation continued to guide attendees of the event over the following days.
The R4 program featured network and industry updates affecting agents and consumers internationally and included speakers from some of RE/MAX Australia’s members.
Wynnum’s Rob Levy joined a panel on stage talking all things video and marketing and Justin Miller from Robina on the Gold Coast presented an education session, sharing his expertise on what it takes to establish a successful property management business.
“RE/MAX CEO Adam Contos shared that RE/MAX has grown to more than 130,000 agents worldwide, which is the most in the company’s history. This transformation solidifies that that RE/MAX leads the industry because of its people,” Mr Davoren said.
“Nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX and as a brand we keep evolving to enhance our advantages to meet the needs of our agents, business owners and consumers.”
