Ryan's Re/Max Realty Business Card Collection

Brief History of the Re/Max Realty Franchise Network:

In 1973, Re/Max Realty was born in Denver, Colorado to Dave and Gail Liniger.

Re/Max is an acronym for "Real Estate Maximums".

In 1975, Re/Max established its first franchise outside of Colorado USA.

In 1978, Re/Max celebrated its fifth birthday and celebrated by launching its first trademark Re/Max hot air balloon.

In 1979, Re/Max came to Canada! Frank Polzler and Walter Schneider were the two Canadians to convince Lininger to start Re/Max Ontario-Atlantic Canada.

In 1988, Re/Max had over 20,000 Sales Associates and became the number one realty in Canada.

In 1997, Re/Max celebrated its 25th anniversary with 48,000 Sales Associates in 2,900 offices all over the world.

In 2004, Re/Max continues to grow in 38 countries and 69,825 Sales Associates.

My Interest in collecting Re/Max Realty Business Cards:

I have to admit that it was a local fellow collector in Sarnia, Ontario that collected the red, white and blue Re/Max Realty business cards before I did.

Edward J. Banik who is also a close friend and a business card trader here in Sarnia showed me many years ago his growing Re/Max Realty collection.

Ed Banik had a lot of Re/Max business cards so I thought I should sort the ones I had in my collection and compare the totals with Ed's Re/Max collection.

Once I sorted my Re/Max business cards by both Province and State, I noticed that I was missing Re/Max representation from many areas.

When I discovered how easy it is to access the addresses for any of the franchised locations I started my mailing campaigns.

The campaign consisted of a brief request to Re/Max agents mostly in North America along with a couple of my personal collector cards.

The request was simple. "May I have one or two of your business cards from each Sales associate in your office?"

Some Re/Max agents never responded but many did and still do.

A big thank you to all the Re/Max employees that have helped my collection grow.

My total Re/Max collection today consists of over 7,300 diferent Re/Max agents.

Below are my specific totals for both North America and the world.

Do I have cards from your geographic area?

Even if I do, please save any Re/Max business cards and send them to me!

Thank you.
