N o matter what we do in life, those who do it best are those who have true drive and deep purpose. It's a lesson we teach our kids, but one we unwittingly forgo in our own day- to-day endeavors. We all know that in the real estate business, in particular, drive and passion are the difference between mediocrity and excellence. We see this exemplified in the story of RE/MAX. For more than 40 years, RE/MAX has consistently aimed high to achieve big-picture goals for the growth of the brand, as well as more immediate goals in terms of agent production. According to RE/MAX, the network's agent count has grown every quarter for more than four years, collectively closing over 960,000 sides in 2015. "We've always been the best choice for top producers as well as agents who aspire to become top producers," says RE/MAX CEO, Chairman and Co-founder Dave Liniger in this month's cover story (page 32). "Agents join us because they understand that a productive environment, filled with productive people, is the ideal place to build or expand a successful career." I had the privilege of participating on the Power Panel at the RE/MAX Broker Owner Conference in Chicago last month. I discussed the evolution of the real estate business and how it's been shaped by both the seen and unseen. The real message, however, is that all of us—agent, broker or brand—need to shape our own evolution. We need the drive to take our business to the next level by closely monitoring changing consumer needs, technology trends and our overall economic climate. Let's face it: If we don't evolve, we usually fail. At RISMedia's Real Estate CEO Exchange this month, Power Brokers from across the country will share their own evolutionary journeys and how they continue to succeed despite the seen and unseen forces that mold our business. We hope to see you at the Harvard Club in New York on September 13 and 14 for these important discussions. You can find the full agenda and speaker line- up at www.rismedia.com/ceo-exchange-2016. Wishing you continued success, John E. Featherston CEO & Publisher Driven to Succeed Expanding Homeownership Opportunities
