Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message! Yesterday was a day of remembrance for many of us, myself included. As I reflect back fifteen years ago, I had a busy morning planned. We were preparing for our very first meeting at RE/MAX Professionals; we were officially opening our doors on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Frank and I were excited to present our agents with the vision of our company, and the goals we had set. This was it; our big day.

In between the morning meetings, I caught a waitress with tears in her eyes. Naturally I had to ask her why she was crying and that is when I learned a plane had hit the world trade center. As our agents filtered into the restaurant, the shock and panic was obvious, but I really had no clue the magnitude of what was happening.

In the midst of national chaos, we were able to band together and fifteen years later, I am still humbled and grateful. Our country stood strong, and so did the small group of agents who were the very first to be a part of RE/MAX Professionals. Each year I thank this group of agents, because without them we may not have been able to build one of the strongest real estate companies in the Valley. We have been able to help thousands of families since September 11, 2001. Today, RE/MAX Professionals has over 200 affiliates, and Frank and I couldn’t be more proud.

As we begin our week, please take a moment to remember the first responders, our armed services, and all the men and women who lost their lives on that tragic day. Let’s never forget.
