RE/MAX has announced that it will, as of now, remain open for business during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue to work with mortgage brokers. However, it will also be taking several precautions in line with recommendations from various health agencies and the federal government.
The real estate agency said it will be reducing office hours and its agents will be limiting contact with brokers by using alternative means of communication wherever possible – including texts, phone calls, and emails.

RE/MAX has also circulated information around hand washing and sanitizing with their agents and are strongly encouraging them to follow all guidelines as outlined by public health officials to “help keep themselves and their clients protected.” Moreover, agents that feel unwell have been instructed to self-isolate and not interact with the public.
“At RE/MAX, we want to offer you stability and comfort knowing your real estate needs are still being met in a safe and responsible manner,” the company said in a statement. “On remax.ca, we continue to offer up-to-the-minute listings, accurate home estimates, and timely, valuable real estate news — especially important at this time.”
“To those who are already with our RE/MAX agents buying or selling a home, our agents are there for you and if necessary, will make arrangements with you if there are any concerns around illness or potential spread of the virus,” the company added.
