The RE/MAX® Awards & Recognition Program

Career Awards

One of the three different types of awards within RE/MAX's extensive awards program. Career Awards are given to individual Associates to acknowledge outstanding professional achievements. There are three different career awards: The Hall of Fame, Lifetime Achievement and Circle of Legends Awards. These are awarded by RE/MAX International and it is the responsibility of the Associate to complete and submit applications for these awards.

Circle of Legends

Club Awards

One of the three different types of awards within RE/MAX's extensive awards program. Club Awards are individual awards that are based on levels of annual commission.
