RE/MAX PROFESSIONALS SAINT JOHN INC.
When Gordon and Joanne Breau took over the RE/MAX franchise in Saint John in 1997, the company had 16 agents and operated from small leased office spaces.
Of the 16 original agents, those who remain today are known as the “Original 6.” True to the industry, RE/MAX Professionals invests in real estate, and believes in it, and now owns two large office buildings.
Gordon became involved in the company’s operation from day one, became broker in 1999, and continues to serve as President of the company. Joanne became a licensed Realtor in 2000, and is currently Secretary/Treasurer.
Under Gordon’s leadership, the business has grown to include 52 Realtors and has become the leader in market share for the Saint John area to an impressive 30-35%. As a forerunner in the real estate industry, RE/MAX adopted innovative technology and marketing programs to expand its reach through a revolutionary global listing site. With listings from more than 80 countries displayed in over 40 languages, RE/MAX agents have the opportunity to search and post listings internationally, making international transactions easier than ever.
At the heart of RE/MAX is a deep commitment to the communities in which we operate. Following Gordon’s lead and core values, RE/MAX Professionals have become leaders themselves in supporting their community, giving to local foodbanks, supporting local children’s hockey and baseball, and are proud supporters of the Saint John Sea Dogs. Many of the Realtors volunteer as coaches, assist in school programs, and spend time at the hospital with people in need. They hold positions with the Saint John Real Estate Board and the New Brunswick Real Estate Association, as well as several other local boards, to give back to their community.
Globally RE/MAX has developed the exclusive Miracle Home Program, which allows RE/MAX agents to directly donate a portion of their home sales toward quality healthcare for children. RE/MAX agents also contribute millions of dollars to the Children’s Miracle Network each year.
RE/MAX Professionals run an annual auction in support of the IWK. Each of the Realtors proudly contribute to the Children’s Miracle Network. This combined effort has made RE/MAX Professionals the top contributing RE/MAX office in Atlantic Canada for 4 consecutive years. With last years donation of $47,000.00 in support of IWK, the year to date total is over $400,000.00.
In 2016, RE/MAX Professionals were awarded the highest producing RE/MAX office for a population of 50,000-100,000, and also received the Telegraph Journal’s award for the top Real Estate company for the area.
RE/MAX is the No. 1 Real Estate company in the world. Its familiar balloon is synonymous with real estate, and is one of the most recognized corporate symbols in the world, keeping RE/MAX “Above the crowd” among consumers.
Your home is one of the biggest investments of your life. When you’re ready to buy or sell, choose wisely—choose RE/MAX.
