Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. added 44 offices in 2017, accounting for an 8 percent increase for the year and a 17 percent increase since 2015, the company recently announced. Expansion in the Southern region of the country contributed significantly to the franchise’s growth, with more than half of the newly added offices located in Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, Texas and South Carolina. The franchise continued to grow its footprint out West, as well, with the addition of two new affiliates in Arizona and five new offices in California.
“Weichert continues to be an attractive brand for independent agencies from coast to coast that want access to industry-leading management systems, tools and training programs to help them build a world-class brokerage firm,” says Bill Scavone, president and COO of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. “Seeing the Weichert brand continue to grow across the country—especially as we open in new markets and expand in others—is truly exciting.”
One of those new agencies is Weichert, Realtors® – HH and Associates in Brentwood, Calif., which joined the franchise in April 2017.
“We believe strongly in building up our managers and agents to help them provide the best real estate services available, but you have to have the right systems in place to do that,” says Maggie Hurtado, co-owner of Weichert, Realtors® – HH and Associates. “Making those systems available to your agents can be a challenge when you’re an independent agency. This is one of the many things Weichert has helped us with.”
