On an equally important note, RE/MAX Advantage is here to provide both personal and professional growth to all of our in-house real estate brokers and/or real estate practitioners who are looking to maximize their income potential and go global with their business.” says Joel Advincula.

“What attracted me to RE/MAX is the unparalleled training when it comes to generating new client leads, leveraging the RE/MAX brand name, the ability to do business across the world and earn from the referrals extended by the 155,000 agents located in different parts of the globe, not to mention the confidence I get from having instant recognition simply because I have the RE/MAX brand attached to my name along with the instant credibility the brand gives me when it comes to dealing with the pickiest client. Truly, RE/MAX has improved my sales production by 110% since I started with RE/MAX in February of 2013.” confesses Jose Sehwanhi of RE/MAX Sparc, another RE/MAX Franchisee based in Makati, Metro Manila.
