Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

Kristi Graning is leaving RE/MAX

When I first heard the news I was shocked.

After a stunning 21 year career Kristi Graning has announced she is leaving RE/MAX. I’ve written a lot about Kristi on this blog. She is what I call a “triple-threat” in the industry. Having worked with her back when RE/MAX launched their “network of broker IDX websites” (which put RE/MAX as the solid number 1 franchisor on the web) I witnessed first hand the commitment she gave RE/MAX and the huge accomplishments she made during her tenure there.

This move gives me some pause on the state of RE/MAX currently. This departure was clearly Kristi’s decision and makes me wonder what she knows that the rest of us don’t know.

She had posted on Facebook that she has been talking to several companies but decided to spend the summer with her boys.

I wish her nothing but success and know that we will be hearing from her soon enough on her next chapter.

  1. Well said Greg. With our eNeighborhoods team, we both had the opportunity to work closely with Kristi and her RE/MAX tech team over the years on MANY projects. As we always said, she was one of the toughest, smartest, fairest people we worked with in the industry, which made it so gratifying that we were able to accomplish some amazing things together between our companies.

    I’m surprised that RE/MAX would even let Kristi go, as I can only imagine that they do not fully know what they are losing!

    All the best to you Kristi, and I look forward to seeing what you do next … of course after you enjoy that valuable time off with the family.

  2. Kristi – it is an utter delight to have worked with you … and shivered with you at the Stapleton TV Taping for RE/MAX Satellite Network.

    I still that photo of 3 bearded guys talking about this internet thing.
