2021 Vanguard: James O’Bryon


James O’Bryon’s vision has guided RE/MAX Gold Nation for more than 23 years. Since joining the company, his ideas for change and growth have proven to be priceless and shown to be truly prophetic. 

O’Bryon has led the company through many hurdles over the years, including the Great Recession of 2008 where he emerged with an organization that was smarter, healthier and better poised for growth and support. Similarly, when the pandemic presented unique challenges, O’Bryon leaned into growth and the company grew from one state with 98 offices to five states with 119 offices and 2,688 agents. O’Bryon’s insight and vision during this challenging time helped create a reassuring and supportive place not only for agents, but also for staff and leadership creating further trust in their company. 

Under O’Bryon’s leadership, RE/MAX Gold Nation developed a partnership with Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. From 2015 to 2020, the company has donated over $1.2 million to children and families in need. The company’s ability to give back has increased with its success over the years, growing from supporting three hospitals to seven, benefiting thousands of families.

Gold Nation’s belief in servant leadership comes directly from O’Bryon’s guidance and has created an environment of caring and experienced leaders who strive to put the agent first. O’Bryon’s relentless approach to growth, adaptation and change has created an environment of leaders who are always looking at how they can evolve and improve. Without him, the company would not have seen the same astronomical growth or an environment that puts its agents and communities first.

What is the secret to your success?

“We are relentless. Our success is driven by an incredible group of caring and relentless leaders, employees, and agents who recognize the value of putting the REAL in real estate. Providing value and protection for our clients transcends all else.”
