WORCESTER, Mass. / Jan. 9, 2019 – Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. is pleased to welcome a new Massachusetts real estate company that prides itself on the high-quality service provided by its agents.
The addition of Weichert, Realtors® – Hope & Associates, formerly known as Hope Realty and Associates, LLC, also marks a homecoming of sorts for the company’s broker/owner, Julia Acquaah-Harrison.
“My first job in real estate was at a Weichert® office in southern New Jersey almost 30 years ago,” said Acquaah-Harrison. “So when Weichert approached me with an opportunity to join their national franchise system I saw it as a chance to reunite with people that are like family to me.”
The opportunity to take advantage of all the resources Weichert provides its affiliated agents to help them succeed also contributed to Acquaah-Harrison’s decision to join the national brand.
“Weichert gave me everything I needed to succeed when I started working in real estate, so I know first-hand how beneficial this move will be for both my new and experienced agents,” said Acquaah-Harrison.
As part of the Weichert franchise network, Acquaah-Harrison’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.
Acquaah-Harrison added: “It’s great to be back with a winning team. Joining Weichert will be a game-changer for us.”
