Today’s episode is unique because I have two guests with completely different backgrounds and experiences, and both are very influential none the less. Because this interview was quite long, I did break it up into Part 1 & Part 2! Enjoy...
Matt van Winkle is the CEO of RE/MAX Northwest with 10 offices, almost 400 agents and support staff, and $2.5 billion in sales.

Moreover, he has built RE/MAX Northwest into the #1 RE/MAX in Washington State and is also a consultant and coach for brokers and brokerage owners across the country. His strategy? Work Hard. Be Nice.®
Nick Bailey rejoined RE/MAX as Chief Customer Officer in September 2019 where he oversees all support services provided by RE/MAX LLC to its expansive network of franchisees and Affiliates. He also is responsible for driving the network’s business growth, professional development and engagement. Nick’s experience includes being a Sr. Vice President at Market Leader, a Vice President at Trulia/Zillow and, most recently, the President and CEO of Century 21.
