The RE/MAX Experience

RE/MAX Northwest was created to remedy the shortcomings of the classic real estate model. Our office is a high-energy, collaborative place for agents to work together, and we believe that a team approach benefits both our agents and our clients.

At RE/MAX Northwest, we strive to exceed expectations. We think our high quality of service should be the norm in the industry, not the exception. Buying or selling a home can be stressful and time consuming, but no one should feel like they are doing it alone. When you put your trust in RE/MAX Northwest, we work with you to ensure you are satisfied with your home buying or selling experience. You are starting a new chapter in your life and you should be free to focus on the excitement that comes with it.

Real Estate. Real people. real Success.

Our Brokers Love What They Do & It Shows

At RE/MAX Northwest, our mantra is simple: “Work Hard. Be Nice.” There are many challenging aspects of the real estate industry, and we feel strongly that these two rules can conquer any obstacle.  Improving the real estate experience requires more than just tech. It starts at the brokerage level. A brokerage that supports and guides agents positively impacts the agent and client experiences and attracts like-minded agents. We help independent business owners thrive by fostering entrepreneurial development.

Our Passion

It begins with our brokers. We choose to work with incredible real estate agents who understand the market in a unique way; it's more than just a job, it's a part of life. They live and breath real estate, they are willing to go beyond the call of duty for their clients and they support their teammates. Work Hard. Be Nice. It's not just a motto. It's what we do and who we are.


Our team

We work to create an environment that fosters entrepreneurial development where people come together, bounce ideas back and forth, build relationships, and learn real estate. By working hard and being nice, the brokerage has not only grown exponentially over the few short years since its founding, but has done so by attracting agents and staff with those same traits.


Our agents completed over 5,500 transactions last year.

2.5 billion in sales in 2017.


We're the 5th largest RE/MAX in the United States…
…and for good reason.

Collaboration & Growth

Founder, Matt van Winkle, opened the first RE/MAX On the Lake office at Green Lake in the summer of 2011, adding offices in Bellevue over the next three years. When he saw inefficiencies in current real estate tech, he developed his own software to save time for the brokerage and its agents. He later co-founded a real estate startup to continue tech development from the agent and broker perspective.

The foundation of the brokerage was simple:

Knowing the challenging aspects of the real estate industry, Matt developed a team of agents that feel strongly that these two rules can conquer any obstacle. Keeping those values close to heart, RE/MAX On the Lake began blazing a trail in the real estate industry by capitalizing on technological advancements intertwined with providing the highest level of customer service.

In 2015, RE/MAX On the Lake acquired RE/MAX Northwest to become the largest RE/MAX brokerage in Washington State, providing outstanding service around the Puget Sound with six office locations and 250 agents. Growth of this rate cannot go unnoticed and other brokerages began gleaning from RE/MAX Northwest the high-level service that Matt and his team were able to offer.

In August of 2018, RE/MAX Northwest joined forces with RE/MAX Professionals to become the fifth largest RE/MAX in the United States. Infusing innovative technology with a personal approach to real estate, RE/MAX Northwest is home to 375 agents and 10 offices to serve Washington State. We look forward to serving you as well!
