WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Prestige Partners Becomes Newest Affiliate
Atlanta, Ga. / March 1, 2017 – Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. is pleased to announce that RBS Realty in Atlanta has joined their national franchise system. The new office, now known as WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Prestige Partners, is an independently owned and operated affiliate run by Broker/Owner Stephanie Kennedy.
“I am so excited to be joining the Weichert system. Going with Weichert is one of the best business decisions I’ve made during my real estate career,” said Kennedy, who has been a licensed real estate agent since 2000. “Deciding to affiliate with a franchise is a direct result of my attending the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Business program at Babson College.”
The Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program that Kennedy completed helps entrepreneurs create jobs and economic opportunities by providing them with greater access to education, capital and business support services. The Atlanta resident took what she learned in the program and began researching franchise opportunities.
Kennedy spoke with several national realty brands in recent months and felt none were the right fit for her company. She eventually met with representatives from Weichert, including their leadership team in Morris Plains, New Jersey, and was thoroughly impressed with the business tools and marketing support Weichert could provide to help grow her company’s local market share.
“I was really impressed with the technology Weichert uses to produce strong sales leads for its affiliates and how they can help me recruit the best agents in the industry,” added Kennedy, who started her own agency in 2013. “I can definitely see my company growing with Weichert and eventually taking the brand international and opening a branch office overseas, which has always been a dream of mine.”
Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. President and COO Bill Scavone was pleased to welcome the newest Georgia office. “I am thrilled to welcome our new friends at WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Prestige Partners and their clients to the Weichert family. Their office has a reputation for great customer service and they are highly regarded in the Atlanta area. The office also shares our client-first philosophy and is rooted in the region it serves.”
