Chicago, IL, April 25, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- When Linda Feinstein changed the affiliation of her successful real estate brokerage in Hinsdale, Ill., from ERA to the RE/MAX Northern Illinois network in October of last year, she brought along 40 affiliated brokers and established RE/MAX Signature Homes.
Feinstein was honored at the annual RE/MAX convention in March, held this year in Las Vegas, for completing the 2014 conversion of a single office that brought the largest number of agents into the RE/MAX network in the United States. In 2014, RE/MAX welcomed 36 existing real estate brokerages and their 256 affiliated agents into its U.S. network. RE/MAX added a total of 253 franchises in the U.S. last year.
“The Hinsdale area is one of the premier housing markets in the Chicago suburbs, so adding such an outstanding office and talented group of brokers has been a huge positive for our network,” said Jim Merrion, regional director of RE/MAX Northern Illinois.
Feinstein explained that the decision to affiliate her office with RE/MAX was based on the organization’s progressive approach to all facets of the real estate business.
“I was especially impressed with the technology that RE/MAX provides,” said Feinstein. “It is light-years ahead of the competition. I see this as an opportunity to grow my own business, but more importantly as a way to grow the business of every broker in our office.”
RE/MAX has been the leader in the northern Illinois real estate market since 1989 and is continually growing.
