DUNCAN, S.C. / May 17, 2021 — Weichert, Realtors® – Shaun & Shari Group, a Weichert® franchised office serving Upstate South Carolina, has expanded its operations with the acquisition of another local affiliate, Weichert, Realtors® – The Partners Group, located in Duncan.
With the acquisition, Weichert, Realtors® – Shaun & Shari Group now has offices in Simpsonville and Duncan. The company has brought on all the agents from Weichert, Realtors® – The Partners Group to increase its team to 24 total agents between the two offices.
The acquisition marks a period of growth for Weichert, Realtors® – Shaun & Shari Group, which joined the Weichert franchise network in November of 2019. “Our goal in franchising with Weichert was to grow our brokerage and provide our agents with the best resources in the industry,” said Broker/Owner Shari Phillips. “We are very fortunate this acquisition opportunity came along and are excited to have a physical presence in Duncan to continue serving clients in the growing area.”
Shaun and Shari Phillips were approached by Chris and Michelle White, the previous owners of Weichert, Realtors® – The Partners Group, about a potential acquisition earlier this year. The Whites were looking to put more focus on their outside appraisal business but wanted to give their team of agents the opportunity to continue working with a successful brokerage. Due to Shaun and Shari Phillips’ tremendous track record of success in the area, the Whites presented an acquisition opportunity to the Phillips with a strong belief they could do an outstanding job growing the business and helping their agents thrive.
“We’ve known Chris and Michelle for years and have become very close with them,” said Shaun Phillips. “There is a big trust factor in our relationship that made this process a lot easier. It’s extremely humbling that they entrusted us to take over their brokerage and lead their team of agents.”
The team at Weichert, Realtors® – Shaun & Shari Group has worked with many clients in the Duncan area in the past, and brings on multiple agents from Weichert, Realtors® – The Partners Group who have served the area extensively.
“Duncan is a very desirable area with a large amount of new construction and affordable housing,” said Director of Business Development Nathan Gamble, who played a pivotal role in bringing the acquisition together. “By adding an office in Duncan, we’re confident we’ll have a strong presence and be able to provide exceptional service to clients in the area.”
Weichert, Realtors® – Shaun & Shari Group is an independently owned and operated Weichert® affiliate. The office serves the Upstate South Carolina area.
