Owner Tracie Rich is not surprised at the initial success the company has had in Rockford, “The RE/MAX motto is Outstanding Agents, Outstanding Results and we definitely have outstanding agents and they have produced outstanding results for their clients all over Rockford and the Greater Grand Rapids area. Tom & I knew going into this that the Rockford community would do everything it could to support us and help us grow and the community has certainly done that. Local businesses, the Chamber of Commerce, the Rockford Squire, and others have reached out to us and offered help and advice along the way that proved invaluable to getting up and running quickly. We are doing everything we can to return that support by being an active participant in local events and an advocate for our community.”
