Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. has been named one of the top franchises in the country for U.S. military veterans by Franchise Business Review in its “2017 Best of the Best: Top 100 Franchises for Veterans” list, an annual ranking based on franchise owners’ satisfaction with their franchisor, the company recently announced. This marks the second year in a row that the Weichert® national franchise network has been recognized on Franchise Business Review’s prestigious annual veterans list.
“It truly is an honor to continue to be held in high regard by the brave men and women that proudly served this country during their military careers,” says Bill Scavone, president and COO of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. “The positive feedback from our veteran owners speaks volumes to the personal support and proven operating and management systems we provide our affiliates to help them capture a larger share of their local real estate market, as well as the Weichert brand itself.
“It’s exciting to see the Weichert brand—and what it represents—continue to be viewed favorably by our franchise owners,” Scavone says. “It also continues to be recognized by prominent independent organizations, which helps elevate our profile among real estate franchise options and makes the Weichert brand even more attractive to independent brokerages.”
