PELHAM, Ala. / March 1, 2017 – Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. continues to grow its market presence in the Southeast region of the country with the addition of WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Romano Properties. The addition of the new real estate office in Pelham, formerly known as Romano Properties, LLC, marks the ninth Weichert® office in the state.
“My team and I are thrilled to be a part of the Weichert Franchise System,” said Marie Romano, the broker/owner of WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Romano Properties. “After meeting their leadership team up in New Jersey and hearing everything they could provide to help me grow my business, going with Weichert was hands-down a better fit than any other realty brand I talked with.”
Romano opened the Pelham real estate agency four years ago after she decided to branch out on her own, something she considers one of her biggest career accomplishments. She also believes affiliating with Weichert was a defining moment in her real estate career.
“I’m also excited to take advantage of the business tools and marketing support provided by Weichert to help us stand apart from our competitors while making us a more attractive agency for home buyers and sellers,” added Romano, a lifelong Birmingham resident whose office has built a reputation for its excellent customer service.
Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. President and COO Bill Scavone was pleased to welcome the newest Alabama office. “I am thrilled to welcome our new friends at WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Romano Properties and their clients to the Weichert family. Their office has a reputation for great customer service and they are highly regarded in the Birmingham area. The office also shares our client-first philosophy and is rooted in the region it serves.”
WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Romano Properties is a full service real estate agency serving the Birmingham metro area.  The office is also a member of the Birmingham Better Business Bureau as well as the Birmingham Association of REALTORS and National Association of REALTORS.
