BIG LAKE, Minn. / July 27, 2018 – Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. continues to grow its Midwest market presence with the addition of Weichert, Realtors® – MNsota in Big Lake, Minnesota. The addition of the new real estate agency marks the 16th Weichert® affiliate office in the state.
The owner of the company, Jeff Nagorski, made the decision to franchise after meeting with the Weichert leadership team in Morris Plains, New Jersey. Nagorski saw tremendous value in joining a brand like Weichert and the support they provide their affiliated owners, brokers and agents.
“Everything I heard from the leadership team at Weichert during my visit at their New Jersey headquarters was in line with what I was looking for to help grow my business,” said Nagorski, whose agency, formerly known as MNsota Real Estate, opened in 2005.
“Joining a national brand like Weichert is a big move for a small agency like mine,” added Nagorski. “But it’s one I’m looking forward to.”
As part of the Weichert franchise network, the Big Lake affiliate can take advantage of agent training programs and management systems to help offer the best real estate service in the industry. The office is also eligible to receive sales leads from the Weichert call center to help grow its local market share.
Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. President and COO Bill Scavone was pleased to welcome the newest Minnesota affiliate. “I am thrilled to welcome our new friends at Weichert, Realtors® – MNsota and their clients to the Weichert family. Their office has a reputation for great customer service and they are highly regarded in the Big Lake area. The office also shares our client-first philosophy and is rooted in the region it serves.”
Weichert, Realtors® – MNsota is an independently owned and operated Weichert affiliate. The office serves the west suburbs and central area of Minnesota.
