No matter what the occasion, whether it is the news your family is growing or a work promotion requiring your family to find a new place to call home, finding the right school in the right neighbourhood can be a difficult task.

We recently did a study with Leger that found that most Canadian parents (84 per cent) want access to information on schools during their new home search, and we listened. With that, we are excited to announce the RE/MAX School Tool! Learn more in the video below:

The RE/MAX School Tool gives families one less thing to worry about as we’ve made finding the right home near the right school a simple search on This intuitive feature is highly visual and can help you see various schools associated with a listing, and match schools to a specific home address.

Homebuyers now have the ability to see the location of 14,500+ public, separate and private schools and search listings within the catchment area of 9,000+ public schools on This easy-to-use search tool allows users the opportunity to review school options for a particular street address and assist you in your search process. What does this mean for you? It means your homework just got a little easier. It’s simple math, your perfect home plus the perfect neighbourhood minus the hassle of determining which school falls within the boundary, equals the perfect match.

Whether searching for a listing, a neighbourhood, or a specific school first, we’re committed to helping move more Canadian families into their ideal homes and neighbourhoods. We’re listening to Canadians and we’re focused on providing technologies like the School Tool making the search for your home easier and more efficient, so you can focus on the next soccer practice or helping to solve that tricky math problem during homework time.
