RE/MAX Results: Acquires RE/MAX First Choice in southwestern Wisconsin

LA CROSSE; ONALASKA; GAINESVILLE, WI, September 22, 2020—Today, The RE/MAX Results leadership team of Broker/Owner John Collopy and Chief Executive Officer Brenda Tushaus, is pleased to announce that they have acquired the RE/MAX First Choice offices in Western Wisconsin. The offices, previously owned by Mike Richgels and Brian Stephan, are located in La Crosse, Onalaska and Galesville, WI and will be rebranded as RE/MAX Results.

RE/MAX Results operates out of the Twin Cities, St. Cloud, Rochester, Duluth/Superior, Mankato and Western Wisconsin markets. With this latest acquisition, RE/MAX Results has grown to 44 offices and nearly 1,200 Sales Executives, making it the largest and most productive RE/MAX franchise in the United States. 

“RE/MAX Results always looks to grow and expand our presence,” shares Brenda Tushaus, CEO of RE/MAX Results. “We believe this newest addition is a solid fit. Brian and Mike run a highly-productive brokerage whose business model aligns well with RE/MAX Results’. We anticipate a seamless transition for our newest agents and their clients.”

Regarding the acquisition, John Collopy, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Results says, “We’re simply taking a company that was already great and making it even better by adding the Results’ network of associates, technology tools, training and support staff.”

RE/MAX First Choice originally opened with one office in Onalaska, WI in 1994 and over the years grew to four offices and more than 30 agents. Both former owners plan to stay on with RE/MAX Results as consultants to RE/MAX Results and Sales Executives & Team Leaders. They are looking forward to watching the offices and agents flourish under the RE/MAX Results brand. 

“Our agents are the most productive in the area and this was not an easy decision to make,” shares Stephan. “But we think RE/MAX Results provides the best opportunity for our agents to have excellent resources to grow their business and represent their clients. And for Mike and I, we have the peace of mind knowing the office is very capable of continuing to serve our communities with the same level of professionalism and success we developed as RE/MAX First Choice.” 

“This is a favorable opportunity,” says Fiona Petrie, RE/MAX INTEGRA EVP and Managing Director of US Operations. “John and Brenda are forward-thinking leaders. They understand the market and are driven to make a difference in the lives of their agents and the communities they serve.”

The new RE/MAX Results offices are located at:

  • 757 Sand Lake Road, Onalaska, WI
  • 3210 State Road, La Crosse, WI
  • 16859 S 1st St, Galesville, WI
