Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. continued to expand its national franchise footprint with the addition of 50 new offices in 2018, a 6 percent increase on the year. This was the third consecutive year of new office growth. The brand’s office footprint has expanded 22 percent since 2015.
The Southern and Midwest regions of the country saw the most significant increase in new offices during 2018, which accounted for 36 out of the 50 new offices added.
Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. also continued to grow its footprint out West with the addition of three new offices in California, one of the country’s most competitive real estate markets.
The Weichert® national brand also expanded its footprint into the state of New Mexico, with the addition of two new companies.
“We’re excited to see the Weichert franchise footprint continue to grow year-over-year—especially as we open in new markets and expand in others,” says Bill Scavone, president and chief operating officer of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc.
“Our sustained growth is proof that Weichert continues to be an attractive brand for independent companies across the country that want access to industry-leading operating and management systems and training programs to help them build a world-class brokerage,” adds Scavone.
One such agency is Weichert, Realtors® – Superior Homes in Oxnard, Calif., which joined the national franchise network last May.
“We looked into what Weichert had to offer and we liked what we saw,” says Jose Escamilla, the company’s broker/co-owner. “Your agents need as much support and training as you can give them when doing business in a highly competitive market like ours and that’s definitely something we’ll get from Weichert.”
Weichert currently has affiliate offices serving over 300 markets in 38 states, representing smart entrepreneurs who were interested in joining a nationally recognized brand which offers incomparable tools, training and marketing techniques to set them apart from the competition. Each Weichert affiliated office is independently-owned and -operated.
