Franchising Helps WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Centennial Increase its Local Market Presence
NORMAN, Okla. / Aug. 23, 2017 — Like most parts of the country, the real estate market in the Oklahoma City metro area has gone through a lot of changes over the past decade. Record-setting home sale prices, followed by a housing market crash that left many in the industry wondering how to survive.
But not WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Centennial, an independently owned and operated Weichert® affiliate in Norman.
The family-owned business opened in 2007 and quickly became known for its exceptional customer service, which helped carry them through the market’s recession. As the housing market rebounded, the company’s broker/owner, Tony Graham, set his sights on growing the business while maintaining its reputation.
That’s when Graham turned to Weichert.
“Joining the Weichert national franchise system is one of the best decisions I’ve made throughout my years in real estate,” said Graham, whose Norman agency became a Weichert affiliate in 2013. “They’ve given us everything we’ve needed over the past four years to help increase our local market share. I’m afraid to wonder where this company would have been 10 years after it opened if we didn’t join Weichert.”
Graham’s office has seen its share of the local real estate market increase significantly since joining Weichert. His agents have also benefited from the move, several of whom were recognized by the national franchise system earlier this year for their outstanding sales production in 2016.
The office is planning an event in the fall to celebrate its 10th anniversary and has started to reach out to current and former clients to join them.
“We can’t wait to see our current and former clients at this event to thank them again for all their support and trust in us to help them with their real estate needs,” added Graham.
WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Centennial is a full service real estate agency. The office serves the Oklahoma City metro area.
