PRESCOTT, Ariz. / June 17, 2019 – Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. continues to grow its market presence in the Southwest region with the addition of Weichert, Realtors® – CLA, a new affiliate in Arizona.
The addition of the new real estate office, formerly known as CLA Realty, in Prescott marks the seventh Weichert® affiliate in the state and first in Yavapai County.
“We’re so excited about joining the Weichert national franchise system,” said Colleen McElmell, the broker/owner of the Prescott-based Weichert affiliate. “There’s such a positive buzz around the office about this move. We’re definitely headed in the right direction with our new Weichert affiliation.”
As part of the Weichert franchise network, McElmell’s team can take advantage of training programs provided by Weichert to help them offer the best real estate service in the industry. The office will also be eligible to receive sales leads from the Weichert call center to help grow its local market share.
McElmell also sees tremendous value in the Weichert brand and the broad spectrum of support the company offers its franchisees.
“It’s an uphill battle for smaller, independent agencies like ours to stay competitive in a thriving real estate market,” added McElmell. “With Weichert backing us we have what it takes to stay ahead of the competition by providing our clients a best-in-class real estate experience.”
Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc.
