RISMEDIA, May 7, 2009-Despite market conditions, recruiting is up 50% for Leading Real Estate Companies of the World year-to-date through April, versus the same period last year, the company has announced.
LeadingRE reports adding 14 new member companies with 35 offices and over 650 associates since January, versus nine member firms last year. New affiliates provide additional coverage in Taos, NM; Fremont, CA; the Hamptons, NY; Baltimore, MD; Murphy, NC; Wailea, HI; South Elgin, IL; Strasburg, VA; Stowe, VT; Telluride, CO; Aspen, CO; Incline Village, NV; Lake Tahoe, NV; and Lansing, MI. Two of the companies were former national franchise affiliates who have returned to independence.
“While virtually all brokers are trimming expenses everywhere possible in this environment,” comments LeadingRE President/CEO Pam O’Connor, “many are also re-deploying dollars in strategic areas to position themselves for growth when the market turns. The robust resources provided by our network today, ranging from lead generation to luxury marketing to blogging platforms and Web tools, are obviously resonating with brokers looking to be here for the long haul.”
