Dave Liniger, founder of Re/Max International, recently stopped by to visit Kathie Lickwar (left) and Sandy Gervais of Re/Max Advantage in Avon.

Re/Max Advantage in Avon was the highest bidder for a visit from Dave Liniger, chairman of the board and founder of Re/Max International. The visit was auctioned at the Re/Max International Convention and the $11,000 bid for his visit was donated to Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, the charity of choice for the Avon real estate agency.

During his visit, Liniger addressed Connecticut Re/Max real estate associates on the latest trends and issues in real estate. A widely respected leader and real estate trendsetter, Liniger is generally credited with doing more than anyone in the industry to improve the working environment and income potential of sales agents.

“My business partner, Sandy Gervais, and I were thrilled to be a top bidder at the Re/Max International Convention,” said Kathie Lickwar, broker/owner of Re/Max Advantage. “Not only did we get a visit from Dave, but we were also able to help the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.”
