RE/MAX celebrates success

The definition of success is the achievement of something desired, planned or attempted. For many of the RE/MAX of Southern Africa Broker/Owners and sales associates, 2013 was the epitome of that definition, achieving results which few within the industry can compete with, says Adrian Goslett, CEO of RE/MAX of Southern Africa.
He notes that it is important that these accomplishments be acknowledged and celebrated, which is why RE/MAX of Southern Africa holds annual award ceremonies recognising the various feats the professionals within the brand have achieved. The annual awards were split up into regional events that were held throughout the country during the month of February. Those who attended the various events were entertained by ventriloquist Conrad Koch and his puppet Chester Missing, dubbed as South Africa’s hottest new political analyst.
There were a number of awardees who were commended for their outstanding sales performance based on various levels of registered commission achieved during 2013.  The long list of awards included 243 agents attaining Silver Club status (R200 000), 226 agents achieving 100% Club (R350 000), 167 agents awarded as Gold Club members (R550 000), while 111 agents were awarded Platinum Club status (R750 000). A further 97 agents were awarded for being part of the Millionaire’s Club (R1 million), while 68 became Chairman’s Club members (R1.5 million) and 22 reached the top tier of Diamond Club (R3 million).
In addition, a number of RE/MAX agents received exciting career awards with 11 receiving newcomer awards (earning R150 000 and having joined within the calendar year), 43 entering the Hall of Fame (R3.5 million) for their exceptional sales results and minimum of three years of service with the brand, and five receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award for their exceptional sales results achieved over the seven or more years that they have been with RE/MAX of Southern Africa. 
Some top performers also laid claim to special awards presented for 2013, with the winners including Mariana van Schalkwyk of RE/MAX Adventure Properties, who was awarded as the top individual sales associate by registered commission in 2013. The top individual team of sales associates for 2013 by registered commission was awarded to Deanne Hamilton of RE/MAX Panache. Sales Associate of the Year 2013 by number of transactions went to Talana Foot of RE/MAX Independent Properties, while the Sales Team of the Year 2013 by number of transactions went to Christo Slabbert of RE/MAX Independent Properties.
The top producer of 2013 - which can be an individual sales associate, team leader or selling Broker/Owner - was Lance Heroldt, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Masters Properties. Lance also walked away as the Broker/Owner Sales Team of the Year 2013 by Registered Commission. The award for Broker/Owner Individual of the Year 2013 by Registered Commission went to Roma Naude of RE/MAX Property Merchants.
The Broker/Owner of the Year 2013 for a Multi Office in a Metro area went to Grant Gavin of RE/MAX Panache. Margie Geyser of RE/MAX Adventure Properties was awarded as Broker/Owner of the year for a Single Office in a Non-Metro area, while Neville and Cindy Brits of RE/MAX Dazzle took the honour in a Metro area.  Broker/Manager of the Year was presented Andrew Louw of RE/MAX Infoglobe.
The award for highest sales volume by registered commission for a Multi Office nationally went to RE/MAX Property Associates. RE/MAX Dazzle was awarded as the single office with the highest sales volume by registered commission in a Metro area, with RE/MAX Adventure Properties taking the top spot in a Non-Metro area. RE/MAX One was recognised as the Top Recruiter of the Year. The highest contributing office to the RE/MAX Foundation, a non-profit charitable organisation that aims to uplift the lives of families and individuals in need, during 2013 was RE/MAX Jowic, while the highest contributing agent was Rene Kotze of RE/MAX Lifestyle Estates.
A large majority of the agents from RE/MAX of Southern Africa accomplished incredible results during 2013 and their hard work and achievements have continued to ensure RE/MAX of Southern Africa is one of the country’s leading real estate groups. “As the largest real estate brand in South Africa, it is a fact that RE/MAX of Southern Africa agents place a family in their dream home almost every 15 minutes. That is a remarkable accomplishment that can be attributed to the calibre of the 1 900 real estate professionals who we have working within our group, who have an average of 13 years’ real estate experience among them,” says Goslett.
Goslett says that the success the brand enjoyed during last year was a direct result of RE/MAX agents going above the crowd and giving their clients excellent service, while understanding that the real estate industry is more about connecting with people and fostering relationships than just selling an asset. He notes that the training and support services offered to Broker/Owners and their agents also assisted in ideally positioning the brand. “While we have experienced a challenging economic climate in the housing market over the past few years, the RE/MAX network has been able to perform above industry norms because of the extensive resources and training available to them,” adds Goslett.
“While the property market is constantly changing and the year ahead will have its challenges, there is no doubt that RE/MAX of Southern Africa is well equipped to deal will whatever the market has to offer and will continue be the real estate group offering the best service,” Goslett concludes.
