Meeting Dave Liniger

Today I had the opportunity to hear Dave Liniger speak and meet him afterwards. He is the founder of the largest real estate company in the world, RE/MAX. He was an extremely motivating and interesting man who shows no signs of slowing down.

After dropping out of college and joining the military, he started buying small houses and selling them. By the time he was 21, he had sold 21 houses. From there on he had a successful career as a real estate agent for several large companies, then he founded RE/MAX.

He spoke of the many years of difficulty trying to start up the company and compete in the real estate market. Financial problems and death threats were the norm during the starting years, but once the company finally got on track, it soared. He also was very proud that RE/MAX was the only large real estate company who allowed women and minorities to become agents and upper management.

This is a bad picture for both of us, but here it is anyway!

    Hello Nev,

    Congratulation’s on everything that you are doing, and are set out to do! I am a RE/MAX agent of almost 11 years, hold several designations, and a proud member of the RE/MAX Hall of Fame. I met Dave for the first time at the 2005 International Convention. Actually, I just returned yesterday evening – late. I had the opportunity to speak with Dave – one on one. He is a down to earth – dynamic guy. Now I know why I remain – RE/MAX. Good Luck in all you do with the opportunities and support you have behind you.

    HI Nev,

    I live in Denver, CO and still haven’t been able to meet Dave Liniger in person even though we share the same interests – Real Estate, Golf, Arabian Horses, The Wildlife Experience, etc. You sure are a lucky man not only to have met him, but to also have a picture taken with him! Good Luck in your career!
