RE/MAX On the Lake, a locally owned real estate brokerage, is expanding further into the Seattle metropolitan area with the acquisition of RE/MAX Northwest REALTORS. The owners of RE/MAX On the Lake have signed an agreement to purchase the RE/MAX Northwest REALTORS brokerage; the parties expect the transaction to close in early 2016. Following the close, RE/MAX Northwest REALTORS will continue to operate under the same name, but will return to local ownership with current RE/MAX on the Lake Broker/Owner Matt van Winkle.
RE/MAX Northwest REALTORS has approximately 160 real estate agents in three office locations: Bothell, Kirkland and Seattle. All offices combined will be home to more than 240 Associates in six offices, resulting in the largest RE/MAX brokerage in the state by agent count and sales volume.
“RE/MAX Northwest has tenured, experienced agents who provide a high level of service to their clients, which is a perfect fit for RE/MAX On the Lake,” van Winkle said. “Together, our offices will ensure a more efficient and effective business environment that will ultimately take customer service to another level. It’s a win – win for everyone.”
By joining forces, RE/MAX On the Lake and RE/MAX Northwest REALTORS are able to expand its entrepreneurial atmosphere to a wider audience of Associates. By providing valuable productivity tools, enhanced coaching opportunities and a collaborative work environment, Associates will be able to have a more efficient business strategy tailored to each client’s needs.
