Re/Max International recently held its annual conference of broker/owners and office managers in Ottawa, with nearly 800 attendees from North America, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Caribbean.

At the opening session, Re/Max co-founder and chairman Dave Liniger, who missed the event last year due to a life-threatening illness, told the audience that personal drive is what makes everyone a survivor.

“We’re now seeing a recovery and Re/Max is growing again,” said Liniger. “We survived as a team and learned from it, and now have a tremendous opportunity before us.  I’m excited about where we’re about to go.”

Liniger became a bestselling author this year, with the release of his motivational book, My Next Step: An Extraordinary Journey of Healing and Hope.  The book recounts Liniger’s determination as he fought through a paralyzing staph infection.

Re/Max CEO Margaret Kelly moderated a panel of broker/owners from the United States and Canada about the improving aspects of the two economies and their respective real estate markets.

The keynote speaker, Kentucky Wildcat basketball coach John Calipari, delivered a message of recruiting and retaining the best performers, while motivating team members to achieve their best.
