RE/MAX Platinum Realty has announced the launch of its newly formed International Department. The department brings international real estate buyers to the Sarasota-Bradenton area by leveraging the global RE/MAX brand and the RE/MAX broker network in more than 85 countries.
“The RE/MAX name, along with the RE/MAX balloon logo, is one of the most recognized and trusted brands in the world,” said Broker-Owner Bryan Guentner. “In addition, RE/MAX provides great tools that are accessible to every franchise, but few franchises really maximize them. Our International Department will use those tools to their full potential.”
Guentner said the launch of the International Department was timed for the summer, which is the season for international tourists. “Many people who come here on vacation from other countries are looking for second homes in Florida,” he noted.
The department was formed with the support of a number of RE/MAX Platinum Realty agents, many of whom are natives of foreign countries, representing multiple languages including Danish, English, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish.
The department works closely with the new Global New Homes Division, which markets builder and developer properties internationally through the RE/MAX broker network, international trade shows and active company sales efforts.
RE/MAX Platinum Realty offers full-service residential real estate solutions in Sarasota and Manatee Counties, specializing in luxury and waterfront properties. The company markets homes to 87 countries in 32 languages, and maintains offices in downtown Sarasota, St. Armands, Lakewood Ranch, Osprey and Venice. TeleP: (941) 929-9090.
RE/MAX was founded in 1973 by Dave and Gail Liniger, real estate industry visionaries who still lead the Denver-based global franchisor today. RE/MAX is recognized as one of the leading real estate franchise companies with the most productive sales force in the industry and a global reach of more than 80 countries. With a passion for the communities in which its agents live and work, RE/MAX is proud to have raised more than $100 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, Susan G. Komen for the Cure® and other charities.
