RE/MAX Realty Centre Named Top Brokerage in Region
Office Ranks at #1 in Olney, Md. and Clarksburg, Md.
Olney, Md. (I-Newswire) February 15, 2013 - In recognition of its outstanding achievements, RE/MAX Realty Centre has been named the 2012 Brokerage of the Year for the Central Atlantic Region. This brokerage was chosen among nearly 200 RE/MAX franchises.
Joe and Bette Buffington, and Joe Buffington II, Broker/Owners of RE/MAX Realty Centre, accepted their award Tuesday morning when headquarters staff surprised them during a monthly office meeting.
“This is a tremendous honor for the Buffington family, RE/MAX Realty Centre and more than 100 professional agents within the Olney and Clarksburg offices, who are now recognized as being among the best in their profession,” said Kevin Northrup, Vice President, Central Atlantic Region. “This award represents trust, integrity and community leadership that the entire team encompasses - a win, win for this market.”
Exceeding the Expectations
Amid a downturn in the housing market, agents at RE/MAX Realty Centre increased their volume more than 20 percent over the past twelve months, averaging more than $3 million each in total sales volume for the year. Also in 2012, the RE/MAX network in its entirety was recognized as the highest-ranking real estate company in both Entrepreneur magazine’s “Franchise 500” and Franchise Times magazine’s “Top 200.”
An Office Invested in the Community
RE/MAX Realty Centre’s achievements go beyond just office productivity; they’re also reflected in its community involvement. The Olney location has a space dedicated to training agents, and it also doubles as a social meeting space for community meetings and gatherings. The Clarksburg location operates from a historical district where Joe and Bette cautiously erected a multi-business building while adhering to strict historic guidelines. And when the community asked them to open the building to other businesses, they welcomed a new restaurant that became a popular new social spot.
RE/MAX Realty Centre agents similarly pride themselves on their community involvement. The team shows its support through a wide variety of activities ranging from Olney Community Night and Pumpkin Festival to contributing to food drives and toy drives. For the past five years, RE/MAX Realty Centre has partnered with the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to host an annual golf tournament and silent auction. More than $25,000 was raised in last year’s event alone.
The Buffingtons opened their first RE/MAX brokerage in 1985, and have since established themselves as exceptional leaders, mentors and business owners. Their brokerage stands as a cornerstone in their local community and they’ve played a significant role in expanding the presence of RE/MAX throughout Maryland.
“As a proud member of the office for 19 years, I have watched Bette and Joe build their offices from the ground up,” said Jenni Davies, RE/MAX Realty Centre Associate. “They work hard to educate us on new industry laws and trends, top tech ideas and so much more. They’ve made a real difference in a lot of lives and are truly deserving of their award.”
