Addition of West Coast Offices Drives 3rd Quarter Growth
MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. / Oct. 18, 2017 — Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. continued to increase its U.S. market presence with new office signings across the country during the third quarter of 2017.
The West Coast accounted for the majority of third quarter office growth, with one-third of new office signings coming from California, one of most competitive real estate markets in the nation. The national franchise network also added new offices in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Tennessee, Illinois and Massachusetts last quarter.
“We’re thrilled to see the Weichert® brand continue to grow across the country – especially as we open in new markets and expand in others,” said Bill Scavone, president and chief operating officer of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc.
The quarterly growth report follows Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. being named one of the top franchise brands in the United States by Entrepreneur magazine in its “Top Franchise Brands” list for 2017.
“Independent brokerages have tremendous faith in the Weichert brand and strongly believe in the systems we provide to help them capture a larger share of their local market,” added Scavone.
As a result of the increased popularity of the Weichert brand and the resources it provides its affiliates, the franchise model has become more attractive to independent brokerages across the country.
“The growth opportunities that Weichert can offer agents is a key reason I decided to join their franchise system,” said Kelly McDaniel, the principal broker/owner of Weichert, Realtors® – Southern Realty Partners in Hendersonville, Tenn.
McDaniel, whose agency joined the Weichert national franchise network in June, added: “The sales leads that Weichert can provide our office, along with the training programs for my agents, really caught my attention when I met with Weichert earlier this year to discuss franchising.”
Weichert currently has affiliate offices serving over 300 markets in 39 states, representing smart entrepreneurs who were interested in joining a nationally recognized brand which offers incomparable tools, training and marketing techniques to set them apart from the competition. Each Weichert affiliated office is independently owned and operated.
