A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM
Growing up, I enjoyed watching Wayne and Schuster on CBC TV. They were true Canadian Icons who truly understood our national identity and delivered a reflection of ourselves, in true Canadian comedic style. One of my favourite skits was their rendition as Julius Caesar and Brutus in a skit called, “A funny thing happened on the way to the forum.”
The RE/MAX videos portraying a RE/MAX sales associate and an independent Realtor® remind me of those early Wayne and Shuster skits. These videos are very much tongue in cheek renditions of what separates RE/MAX associates from the rest of the crowd.
Many of us, having been with RE/MAX on average for 12 years, take the tools and services for granted. We have forgotten what it is really like to work in an office that has a revolving door of licensees coming and going, many part timers and those that are just generally unsuccessful.
We grew as an organization of full time Realtors® who excelled by working together, sharing ideas and working toward earning Premier Market Presence. Those of us who were involved in those early years all recall when the big question was what is a Remac…? But despite those kinds of comments we persevered and together built the most successful organization of broker owners and sales associates ever achieved.
Here are links to have a look at some of the videos; they are a light hearted way to appreciate our advantages.
