Red, white, and blue balloon to make its second landing at CSU

For the second year in a row, Dave and Gail Liniger will make an appearance at Colorado State University to talk with and inspire students. Their area of expertise: real estate. The Linigers are the co-founders of the world’s top-producing real-estate network, RE/MAX, and they will be sharing their story with interested CSU students on November 29 at 10 a.m. in the Bohemian Auditorium.

RE/MAX, which now boasts a network of more than 100,000 agents in 82 countries, was not always the successful company for which it is renowned today. You can expect Dave and Gail to share stories of their own failures and what they learned from their experiences. For example, Dave failed out of college – a result, he says, of having no goals. However, Dave would later go on to be named one of the “50 Most Powerful People in Real Estate” in 2010.

Gail Liniger

Gail too faced difficulties through the growing process of RE/MAX. While Dave was in charge of recruiting agents to get the company running, Gail maintained the duty of keeping their creditors at bay until they had the funds to pay their dues. But In 1989, Gail was awarded the “Entrepreneur of the Year Award” for the real estate and construction category in Colorado in 1989 by the international accounting firm Ernst & Young and Inc. Magazine. Hard work and perseverance always delivered for the Linigers in the end.

Tales of their struggles, triumphs, and more can be expected during their presentation. As a Denver-based company, RE/MAX has shown a tremendous amount of support in helping CSU to cultivate a culture conducive to the success of business and real estate students. Attending the event is free and open to students, and the College of Business highly encourages interested students to take advantage of this opportunity.
