New Ownership and Management Team Takes Over at Weichert, Realtors® – Cornerstone in Martinez

— Evan Roeser

MARTINEZ, Ga. / November 17, 2023 – Weichert, Realtors® – Cornerstone, one of the area’s premier real estate brokerages with roots in Martinez dating back to 2006, was recently sold to Aaron Duncan and William Webb, owners of two separate successful Weichert® affiliated companies in the region.

Duncan, who also owns Weichert, Realtors® – Real Estate Professionals in Hinesville, serves as the qualifying broker for Weichert, Realtors® – Cornerstone in both Georgia and South Carolina. With a long-time commitment to serving the Fort Stewart community, the idea of converting the Weichert Augusta franchise to a veteran-owned business and expanding the focus on Fort Eisenhower (formerly Fort Gordon) was particularly appealing. Duncan is also a Georgia real estate instructor who will be teaching local pre-license courses in addition to training associates in an ever-changing industry. “The Weichert world-class tools and systems enable our agents to be the best option for both buyers and sellers, and new technologies are always being introduced,” said Duncan. “I look forward to building on the great foundation that Betty has established and ensuring our team remains among the best in the business.”

Webb, the owner of Weichert, Realtors® – Webb and Associates in Statesboro, serves as an associate broker and relocation coordinator with Weichert, Realtors® – Cornerstone. “I’m pleased to have been given the opportunity to partake in this endeavor,” said Webb. “While there will certainly be growing pains, our goal and expectation is to continue to improve while broadening our service area capabilities. This is a great group of real estate professionals in a very competitive market. I’m certain that we all will learn and benefit together.”

Weichert, Realtors® – Cornerstone was originally a small independent company opened in 2006 by Betty and Tom Renard. They joined the Weichert franchise system in 2010 and grew their team to 22 total associates, most of whom are licensed in both Georgia and South Carolina.

Betty and Tom Renard will both remain with the office as associate brokers. “This move increases the level of support, experience, opportunity, and education available to our associates, which ultimately benefits our clients,” said Betty Renard. “It further provides a future path for the company as Tom and I approach retirement. It also allows for the continued operation of the company with the same identity, values, and agent roster.”

Weichert, Realtors® – Cornerstone is an independently owned and operated Weichert® affiliate.
