RE/MAX Hallmark Realty
Prior to purchasing RE/MAX Hallmark Realty with her business partner Ken McLachlan, Debra Bain had been a top producing agent for 25 years.
That experience has shaped how she supports her team of over 1,100 agents at the No.1 RE/MAX brokerage in the world. Bain says the technological tools and training Hallmark provides its agents is critical, but so is accountability and availability.
“I think we’re really good at connecting,” Bain says. “We’re not sitting behind glass doors someplace. We’re in the offices; we’re in the field.” Bain credits Hallmark’s leadership team – Barbara Brindle, Gurinder Sandhu and Steve Tabrizi – with building the brokerage and, through their own ongoing development, leading by example.
“It’s always said, ‘So goes the leader’,” Bain says. “We’re always encouraging our agents to grow their business. If we’re not growing our business, how do we model that for our agents?”
