RE/MAX Malta’s COO, Jeff Buttigieg said that, “We strive to make the most of the possibility of tapping into the know-how of experts to expose local associates to new and diverse teachings and experiences. From the time I initiated such training courses, I have firmly believed in the effectiveness of these courses. We are frequently invited to attend conventions abroad, organised by RE/MAX Global and RE/MAX Europe and therefore we wanted to adopt their ways here in Malta too. Usually it is our associates who travel to participate in such conferences, but this time round we invited international real estate training experts to our own conference.
During this year’s event over 70 RE/MAX Sales and Letting Associates will be recognized for their excellent performance, a number of which had superseded all expectations during the calendar year of 2015. Kevin Buttigieg, CEO of RE/MAX Malta said “It is part of our culture to acknowledge our associates’ outstanding performances. During 2015, Malta outperformed Europe on a per capita basis, which makes a statement that although RE/MAX has grown exponentially, our service standard is not only second to none but has improved.”
