GRAVOIS MILLS, Mo. / Feb. 24, 2021 – Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. continues to grow its presence in Missouri with the addition of Weichert, Realtors® – Laurie Realty in Gravois Mills.

The newest Weichert® affiliate is the company’s fourth franchise in the state of Missouri and the first in Morgan County.

Weichert, Realtors® – Laurie Realty, formerly known as Laurie Realty, is the oldest continuously operating real estate office on the Lake of the Ozarks.

The owner of the company, Billy Boulden, made the decision to join the Weichert national franchise network after extensive talks with the Weichert leadership team. Boulden saw tremendous value in joining a brand like Weichert and the support it provides to affiliated owners, brokers and agents.

“I was thoroughly impressed with the overall tools and business support that Weichert offers its franchise offices to help them capture a larger market share,” said Boulden. “With Weichert’s extensive support, training and technology now readily available for our office, I believe we truly have a great opportunity for growth and expansion.”

As part of the Weichert franchise network, the Missouri affiliate can take advantage of agent training programs, management systems and marketing technology 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.

“In addition to securing the best possible resources for our agents, I was also drawn to Weichert because of the coaching and support they offer,” added Boulden. “I’m continuously looking to grow and become the best possible broker/owner, and I believe Weichert’s strong support system will help myself and our office reach our full potential.”

Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. President and COO Bill Scavone was pleased to welcome the company’s newest affiliate. “We are thrilled to welcome our new friends at Weichert, Realtors® – Laurie Realty and their clients to the Weichert family.
