Commenting on the Event which he has attended for the second time, Mauro Sammut said, “For anybody else in our local industry it is a once in a life time experience, luckily because we are RE/MAX, we have the opportunity to experience this every year. After all the learning and networking we do, it is very hard not to attend next year . I will attend next year.”
During the four-day convention the Maltese affiliates attended several training courses, meetings and an International Referral Networking event where they promoted Maltese properties, The Global Residence Programme and The Citizenship by Investment Programme. Attending the event were delegates from ninety different countries from all over the world. “We have negotiated agreements with African, Middle Eastern as well as British regions amongst others to promote Malta as a destination for a second home or residence.” Mr, Kevin Buttigieg said.
Another key training session at “R4” was that of the company’s’ own trainer Paul Vincenti. Mr. Vincenti was invited by RE/MAX International and delivered a powerful one hour session related to the four different types of psychological characters that RE/MAX associates meet whilst selling property. The session named “4” was attended by over 400 associates from around the world. Mr. Vincenti has also trained in the past; RE/MAX Turkey, RE/MAX Italy, RE/MAX Ireland and England South and is in negotiations to train other regions.
On the last day of the event, RE/MAX International honour their high achievers during a Gala Dinner called the “Night of the Stars”.
