If I Were A RE/MAX Agent...

I just finished attending the first day of Real Trend's Marketing and Technology conference.  I have pages of notes that I hope I can find the time to turn into blog posts, but wanted to get a quick hit up before heading back to the meeting. 

I just finished listening to Kristi Graning, SVP of IT and eBusiness for RE/MAX.  She is a huge asset to RE/MAX. 

If I were a RE/MAX agent, I would make sure I could easily ramble off the following stats to my clients:

- Remax.com has over 4.7 million listings on the site, some of which are updated up to 8 times a day

- Because of this rich content, the website is the number one visited brokerage site in the US.  It generated 56,000,000 million visits in 2007.

- Collectively as a brand (this includes the agent level to the national level to the international field) ONE BILLION dollars (yes, that is with a B) are spent annually promoting the RE/MAX brand.
