Basel is not like any typical Broker Owner and RE/MAX AT HOME is NOT a typical REal Estate Office. Basel provides a beautiful place to work for his agents and I am proud to be there. Basel wants only the best for his agents and is always there to to answer any questions and spends time helping each individual agent grow their business. (Dont know how he finds the time!)

"“As a broker owner for 10 years I dreamed to create a RE/MAX environment that would have all the amenities agents would ever need to grow and serve their clients. Appropriate space with the latest tools, conference rooms to relax with clients, a complete design center that will have your clients talking and referring others, a training room with all the latest technology and a broker owner who believes in training so much, he leads the way.

Basel Tarabein has built this dream RE/MAX facility at 3215 W Algonquin Road in Rolling Meadows and he has built a RE/MAX office that literally 1000’s of broker Owners have dreamed to do, but have not.

What I am most impressed about Basel Terabein; is that he built all of this by true passion and love. Passion to serve and love for people. He has done this not for himself, but for the agents and their clients who call RE/MAX at Home, “Home”. Congratulations and GOD Bless RE/MAX at HOME!

"“I have been spending a lot of time at RE/MAX AT HOME because I am virtually assisting him and many of his agents. Basel's office and the Home Design Center is AWESOME!! I had the opportunity to do a seminar at his office and his training room is a trainer's DREAM COME TRUE. I have sat in on a couple of his office meetings and they are so informative and up to date. Basel is not only a great manager, but has terrific presentation skills and makes his office meeting well worth attending. His knowledge on technology and networking is fantastic and I have had the opportunity to not only serve him, but also learn from him.
We had the pleasure to photograph his office and thought we would share that virtual tour with you--take a look at our work and his great office.
