HomeFinder.com And RE/MAX Team Up For The Second Year To Support Children's Miracle Network HospitalsA®

CHICAGO, May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  HomeFinder.com, a leading digital real estate site, today announced it is teaming up with RE/MAX for the second year to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals® (CMN Hospitals). For every RE/MAX agent who enters the HomeFinder.com Agent Makeover Sweepstakes presented by PNC Mortgage ( http://agentmakeover.homefinder.com/remax), HomeFinder.com will donate $1 to CMN Hospitals, a North American nonprofit organization that raises funds for 170 member children's hospitals, medical research and community awareness of children's health issues.

HomeFinder.com and RE/MAX share the same core values: a loyal commitment to agents and broker/owners, and a dedication to the communities in which RE/MAX agents live and work. RE/MAX agents who enter to win the HomeFinder.com Agent Makeover Sweepstakes presented by PNC Mortgage have the opportunity to win a two-night trip to Chicago to receive a business and style makeover, while furthering the RE/MAX commitment to CMN Hospitals. In 2013, 3,020 RE/MAX agents entered the sweepstakes, which meant CMN Hospitals received $3,020. Michael Downing, with RE/MAX Pro in Hays, Kansas was one of the five winners.

"We're pleased that HomeFinder.com is joining us in support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals," said Mike Reagan, senior vice president, Business Alliances. "RE/MAX agents have long been committed to assisting sick children and their families by donating more than $130 million since 1992. Our agents will certainly support this effort to raise even more money for a great cause."

HomeFinder.com wants to provide the winners and participants with the tools they need to stand out locally and grow a successful business. Compared to one year ago, the National Association of Realtors® reports a 7.1% decrease in home sales due to limited inventory and rising home prices; in such a competitive market, agents need to have every advantage possible to win new clients. RE/MAX agents have the opportunity to be one of five randomly chosen winners flown to Chicago to receive real estate specific marketing training to revamp their brand strategy and succeed on a local level.

"HomeFinder.com and RE/MAX are both committed to real estate agents and their communities," says Doug Breaker, president and CEO, HomeFinder.com. "By teaming up with RE/MAX in support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, we are excited to help RE/MAX agents further their charitable efforts within their communities."

The winners will network with industry leaders, receive one-on-one digital marketing training and work individually with a professional business coach. Each winner will also receive a style makeover that includes: a consultation with a personal stylist, a new outfit, makeup application or shave, hair styling and professional headshots.
