Re/Max takes control of franchising in Texas

Company now owns 10 of 32 US master franchise regions

Denver-based franchisor Re/Max LLC will now have the right to sign up Re/Max franchisees in Texas after taking ownership of the "master franchise" region.

Richard and Jeanne Filip, owners of Houston-based Re/Max of Texas since 1996, agreed to transfer ownership of the master franchise for the state of Texas late last year. They remain the owners of several individual Re/Max brokerages.
