RISMEDIA, January 24, 2011—Prudential Real Estate and Relocation Services, a Prudential Financial, Inc. company announced that Prudential Advantage Realty has combined with Century 21 Vision Real Estate. The transaction more than doubles the size of Prudential Advantage Realty’s sales force and triples the size of its headquarters.
The company’s leadership team includes Broker/Owner Darcy Ihrke, partners Richard Dicks and Becky Hermanson-Hill, and Bob Hansen, former co-owner of Century 21 Vision Real Estate. Ihrke said the transaction enables Prudential Advantage Realty to extend its service and reach in Southern Minnesota. “Our expanded team is composed of local-market experts,” she said. “We will rock our market with the knowledge, experience and innovation customers need today to make great real estate decisions.”
Prudential Advantage Realty serves all segments of residential real estate in Owatonna, Waseca and surrounding communities, from entry-level and move-up markets to luxury homes. The company also provides complete commercial and relocation services, and offers an extensive referral network within Prudential Real Estate.
Hansen said the combined company will capitalize on Prudential Real Estate’s Online Advantage customer contact and lead generation systems, and its extensive LearnCenter education portal, which provides professionals 24/7 access to a large array of professional development opportunities and options. “Our agents just completed onsite training covering the Prudential Real Estate Network and all online resources are now available to us,” he said. “Agents enjoyed the training and are eager to go forward. Prudential Real Estate and Relocation Services offers top-notch real estate technology that will help our agents provide even better service to their customers.”
Prudential Advantage Realty will continue adding top professionals, as opportunities arise. “We’re proud to be growing, even through a transitioning market,” said Ihrke. “Our company is well positioned now and for the future; we will lead our market for years to come.”
