RE/MAX has hired Ben Fairfield to be a vice president and lead region development, regional operations and franchisee support in 15 states in the Western region from the Dakotas to Hawaii, according to an announcement made last week.
At RE/MAX, Fairfield said his primary focus will be to help RE/MAX franchisees leverage the strength of the brand to grow their brokerages and the network.
Fairfield has over 16 years of experience in the real estate industry. In his most recent position, launched and built the SUCCESS Coaching program for SUCCESS Enterprises, a subsidiary of eXp World Holdings, Inc. Prior to that, he served as the director of expansion and sales at United Home Group, served as CEO of Keller Williams Realty Coeur D’Alene, and was the sales manager of Century 21 Beutler & Associates, which he grew to be the largest Century 21 office in the world at the time, according to an announcement. Fairfield also served as the past president and director of the Coeur d’Alene Multiple Listing Service.
“With his years of experience of helping agents increase productivity and brokers scale their businesses, Ben is a fantastic addition to the leadership team here at RE/MAX, LLC. He knows how to inspire, how to help brokerages grow, and what is needed to support successful real estate offices,” Amy Lessinger, the senior vice president of region development at RE/MAX, said in a statement.
In a press statement, Fairfield said he was drawn to RE/MAX due to the strength and consistency of the brand.
“RE/MAX has a solid track record of success. A lot of other brands are the new kid on the block, but I’ve seen a lot of companies hit metrics right away and then aren’t around five, 10 years after they started. RE/MAX hasn’t wavered,” Fairfield said in a statement.
