— Michele Watson

MORRIS PLAINS, N.J. / May 9, 2018 – Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. has been named a top U.S. franchise by Franchise Business Review in its “2018 Top Multi-Unit Franchises” report, which is based solely on franchise owners’ satisfaction with their franchisor.
The top franchises were named to the report based on feedback Franchise Business Review gathered from surveying over 6,600 multi-unit franchise owners, representing more than 250 leading franchise brands in 2017. Franchise owners must also own more than three units for inclusion on the list.
“Being named one of the best franchises in the country as a result of the positive feedback provided by our multi-unit franchise owners is truly an honor,” said Bill Scavone, president and chief operating officer of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. “Inclusion on this prestigious list also reflects the tremendous faith our multi-unit franchise owners have in the quality products and support we provide our affiliates and in the Weichert brand itself.”
One such franchise is Weichert, Realtors® – Coastal Properties in South Carolina, one of the top-producing Weichert affiliates nationally.
“We opened our company as an independent agency in Hilton Head Island, and as we grew and tried to establish ourselves in the marketplace, it was clear that we needed a better business plan,” said Karen Ryan, whose company has opened three additional offices in South Carolina since joining Weichert in 2004. “We were attracted to Weichert because they have a clear plan for success for their franchisees.”
Joe and Karen Ryan were also named 2017 Rockstar Franchisees by Franchise Business Review, which Joe Ryan credits to his affiliation with Weichert.
“I am constantly amazed that with every level and milestone we have achieved in our growth and success, Weichert has been with us each step of the way,” said Joe Ryan. “It has been extremely successful and fulfilling to be affiliated with such a strong and powerful brand.”
Franchise Business Review publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual “Guide to Today’s Top Franchises,” as well as in special reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.
