Top Producing Agents want RE/MAX

Top Producing Agents want RE/MAX

What happened?

Top Producing AgentsAs reported in Above Magazine’s blog post, in April 2016, the managing brokers of a RE/MAX office in Toronto decided to convert the brokerage to another brand – Royal LePage. Regrettably, the managing brokers failed to see a big hole in their plan – their associates didn’t want to leave RE/MAX.

Within a few short months, 12 of the office’s top producing agents left the brokerage and went right back to the Balloon. They joined RE/MAX Community Realty Inc., a sizable competitor in the Toronto market.

Why did they return to RE/MAX?

Shan Thayaparan was among the 12 agents who returned to RE/MAX. He didn’t want to leave the RE/MAX brand in the first place, but he was willing to give Royal LePage a try. This was largely because he enjoyed working with his colleagues. Ultimately, low morale soon set in at the Royal LePage office.

“We weren’t feeling comfortable at the new brand,” Thayaparan says. “Our hearts and minds weren’t with Royal LePage.”

Two months after the conversion, Thayaparan and his colleagues were thrilled to be back at RE/MAX.
