Southeast region office signings drive majority of quarterly growth
MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. / Oct. 11, 2018 — Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. continued to grow into 2018, with 10 offices signings in Q3 contributing to an 11 percent increase in overall offices compared to the same time last year.
The double-digit increase in office growth was buoyed by the addition of 10 new offices across the country during the third quarter of 2018.
The southern region accounted for the majority of increase in new offices during the year’s third quarter, with half located in Alabama, Georgia and Kentucky. The national franchise network also added Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin offices to its Midwest region while it continued to grow its footprint out West, with the addition of its tenth affiliate office in California.
“We are thrilled to see the Weichert® franchise footprint continue to grow year over year,” said Bill Scavone, president and chief operating officer of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc.
“A major selling point, when talking with companies, is the personalized support and proven operating and management systems we provide to help affiliates run their business and capture a larger share of their local market,” added Scavone. “Independent companies find tremendous value in being part of the Weichert franchise system.”
As a result of the increased popularity of the brand and the resources it provides its affiliates, the Weichert franchise model has become more attractive to independent brokerages across the country.
One such agency is Weichert, Realtors® – JBR Legacy in Group in Dothan, Alabama, which joined the national franchise network this past August.
“Joining Weichert gives our agents access to some amazing resources to help them better serve our clients,” said Dwayne Bowman, the president/owner of the newest Alabama affiliate. “We look at this move as a win-win for everyone.”
Weichert currently has affiliate offices serving over 300 markets in 37 states, representing smart entrepreneurs who were interested in joining a nationally recognized brand which offers incomparable tools, training and marketing techniques to set them apart from the competition. Each Weichert affiliated office is independently owned and operated.
