NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RE/MAX, LLC, the Denver based global real estate franchisor, announced today the launch of a cutting edge loyalty program called RE/MAX REWARDS for their affiliates to provide to their customers. RE/MAX has combined forces with Next Jump, the leading provider of loyalty platforms.
“The program’s ability to bring on-going communication and recognition between the agent and consumers is its greatest benefit, allowing them to build affinity in ways that are not currently available”
With this new platform, RE/MAX Affiliates in the U.S. will be able to give their clients and new homebuyers access to deep discounts and Next Jump’s proprietary WOWPoints loyalty technology with access to thousands of local and national merchants on everything from home goods, electronics, and dining. Clients of RE/MAX Affiliates will be able to take advantage of savings crucial during the move to their new home.
“This RE/MAX exclusive program will be a great tool for agents to provide to their customers. The average family spends over $2,500 after they list their home, and again when they move into a new home. The program is designed to help them save on these purchases.“ said Mike Reagan, RE/MAX Senior Vice President Business Alliances.
RE/MAX REWARDS will allow affiliates to create a unique loyalty program for their individual set of clients and create a strong differentiation in the highly competitive real estate market.
“Next Jump is proud to partner with an industry leader, RE/MAX, on this next generation program. RE/MAX is a strong company that truly believes in arming its agents with key technology that will reward their clients“says Greg Kunkel, Next Jump’s SVP of Business Development.
The program is garnering some strong attention from industry experts, “The program’s ability to bring on-going communication and recognition between the agent and consumers is its greatest benefit, allowing them to build affinity in ways that are not currently available” said Barry Westgard, President/CEO of Westgard & Associates.
Two recent respected national surveys show RE/MAX agents continue to outperform their competitors, selling more homes, assisting more families, and leading all other national real estate franchises in sales performance. In the 2011 REAL Trends 500 report, the average RE/MAX agent closed 14.5 Transaction Sides, compared with the 6.8 average of all others in the survey. In the 2011 RISMedia Power Broker Report, RE/MAX agents averaged an impressive 14.7 transaction sides, outselling many competitors by more than two-to-one.

The Company has an ambitious goal of putting the loyalty back into loyalty programs leveraging their technology platform.
