SCHERERVILLE, IN / July 6, 2022 – Weichert, Realtors® – Wold Group located in Schererville is pleased to announce its purchase of Weichert, Realtors® – NWI & Company, with offices in Laporte and Valparaiso. This acquisition brings the two Indiana brokerages together under one umbrella and a new name: Weichert, Realtors® – Illiana. The new brokerage with its three locations will service Northwest Indiana and South Suburban Chicago, under the ownership of Thomas Wold and Kyle Wade.
According to the new Weichert, Realtors® – Illiana broker and primary owner Thomas Wold, the merger builds on the strength of the individual brokerages; creates better opportunities for their agents’ success, growth and development; and increases regional market share. The former Weichert, Realtors® – Wold Group was owned by Thomas Wold and Kyle Wade; the former Weichert, Realtors® – NWI & Company, was owned by Peter and Renata LaSalle. The change took place effective May 1, 2022. As part of the Weichert franchise network, the team at Weichert, Realtors® – Illiana has access to in-depth agent training programs, the latest technology and the most powerful sales and marketing tools in the industry to help provide their clients the best possible real estate service.
“This new venture combines the experience of two great leadership teams and two great sales teams,” says Wold. “Each team has enjoyed great success and an excellent reputation in their respective local communities. We are confident that the new Weichert, Realtors® – Illiana will build on that success, offering even more opportunity to our agents and more comprehensive service to our clients.”
“Having offices in Lake, Porter and La Porte Counties is a huge benefit to both our clients and our agents,” said Kyle Wade, who shares ownership of the new Weichert, Realtors® – Illiana with Wold. “Our goal has always been to offer great customer service to each and every client. This new collaboration allows us to continue following that path to success. We are proud and excited to be part of the Weichert family and look forward to continuing to paint our region with Weichert’s distinctive bright yellow signs!”
