The RE/MAX R4 Convention is not only a fantastic networking and educational opportunity, it’s also a time to celebrate the incredible talent and larger-than-life personalities of the RE/MAX network. RE/MAX Awards recognize achievements of Affiliates during the previous calendar year, as well as their continuous commitment to clients.
Did you earn an award in 2016? Congratulations! Here’s everything you need to know about awards at R4.
Q: What awards does RE/MAX give out?
A: Awards fall into three groups:
• Club Awards – Recognizing Sales Associates and Team Leaders based on commission earnings in a given year. Club Award trophies for the 100% Club and above are presented at R4 award events. Executive Club trophies are not available at R4.
• Career Awards – Recognizing Sales Associates based on cumulative earnings while with the RE/MAX network. All Career Award trophies are presented during the Best of RE/MAX Awards Celebration at R4.
• Special Awards – Recognizing Sales Associates, Broker/Owners, Regional Leaders and others in a variety of categories (production, growth, service and more). Special Awards are presented at R4 during the Special Awards luncheon.
A full list of awards can be found in the official awards brochure.
Q: How will I know if I won an award?
A: You will receive an email from the Customer Relations team at RE/MAX, LLC. The timing can vary depending on the award. If you’ve achieved a Club Award level (either as an Individual or as a Team Leader), you’ll be notified of your new status by the second week of February before R4. If you’ve earned a Career Award, you’ll be notified within 90 days of reaching the tenure and production requirements.
Sales Associates who make the final Top 100 of the year are also notified by the second week of February, but the final Top 10 and Top 5 Affiliates aren’t announced until the Special Awards Luncheon.
There are also three Special Awards that are determined through a nomination process. Those are: Distinguished Service, Broker/Owner of the Year and Manager of the Year. These recipients are notified that they’ve won a Special Award, but which one is kept a secret until the Special Awards Luncheon.
Q: When will the final Top 100 lists be released?
A: The final Top 100 List is published in the Special R4 Edition of the RE/MAX Update, which is sent the Wednesday of R4. The final Top 5 and Top 10 Individuals are announced during the Special Awards Luncheon.
Q: Which award event should I attend?
A: There are three award events at R4: the Special Awards Luncheon, the 100% Club Recognition Luncheon (new this year) and the Best of RE/MAX Awards Celebration. This chart illustrates which event you can attend to receive your award. Of course, you can always pick up your trophy at the Trophy Booth in the Approved Supplier Marketplace.
Q: I’m part of an award-winning team. How will we be recognized at R4?
A: Team Club Awards are awarded to Team Leaders in recognition of the entire team’s success. Although only the Team Leader receives a trophy at R4, all Team Members are invited to take the stage. Additional Team Club Award trophies for Team Members can be purchased at shop.remax.net.
Only Team Club Awards for the 100% Club and above are presented at R4.
Team Members are also eligible for Individual Club Awards based on their production for the year. All Individual Club Award winners for the 100% Club and above are invited to accept their award on stage at the appropriate event or they can pick up their trophy in the awards booth in the Marketplace.
Here is a helpful FAQ with more information about Team Awards.
Q: Do I need a ticket to attend award events?
A: Yes. If you are receiving an award at the Special Awards Luncheon, your ticket is complimentary. Otherwise you – and any of your guests – will need to purchase a ticket for any of the three award events: the Special Awards Luncheon, 100% Club Recognition Luncheon, and the Best of RE/MAX Awards Celebration.
