OCEAN SPRINGS, Miss. / August 19, 2021 – Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. is pleased to announce that Weichert, Realtors® – Gulf Properties has joined its national franchise system.

The new real estate brokerage is owned and operated by Lynn Wade, who has nearly 22 years of experience in the real estate industry.

Wade saw tremendous value in joining a national brand like Weichert® and having proven technology, tools and systems in place for her leadership team and the company’s agents. “Weichert’s marketing tools and resources to achieve growth are top of the line within the real estate industry and will give our brokerage a great foundation for success,” said Wade.

As part of the Weichert franchise network, Wade’s team has access to the Weichert smart technology platform, which will help its agents better service buyers and sellers, as well as help increase their productivity and market share.

She got her career started at her mother’s independent agency in the North Biloxi area before joining another brokerage, where she worked her way up to managing broker, trainer and recruiter. Her love of training agents and helping them reach their goals and full potential played a large role in Wade making the decision to open her own agency.
