Congratulations on your decision to choose real estate as your new career. I am the Vice-President of Residential Marketing at RE/MAX ADVISORS headquartered in Devon, PA. Rather than focus on "downlines" and agent count, we are focused on professional development (RE/MAX UNIVERSITY) and closing more transaction sides per agent, as compared to our peers. Furthermore, we have a few divisions that may cater to your longer term career goals, including but not limited to, asset disposition services, commercial leasing and sales, and business brokerage. If I can be of further assistance, let me know. Good Hunting!
