Chris Sears, a longtime real estate professional, has partnered with JP & Associates REALTORSÂ®Â to open its first Texas franchise in the city of Houston.Â
“Since October of 2018, we have opened more than 20 franchises across the United States with more in development,” says Giuseppe “JP” Piccinini, founder/president of JP & Associates REALTORSÂ®. “However, given the fact that this will be our first franchise in Texas where JPAR was born and made, I am beyond thrilled for what this opportunity has in store for the agents and communities in this bustling market.”
“Having witnessed firsthand the success and growth of this company, I am both pleased and very excited to open this franchise,” Sears states.
Sears’ resume includes CEO and team leader of a $1.6 billion sales volume-producing brokerage, according to a company release, as well as trainer, business coach and consultant to four of the top 10 brokerages in the Houston MSA (with over a decade’s worth of experience), and most recently, president and COO of the fourth-largest real estate brokerage in Houston.
During his 22 years in the business, Sears has overseen 60,000-plus real estate transactions in seven states (and internationally), closed over $9.7 billion in real estate transactions since 2005 and served two terms on the Texas Association of RealtorsÂ® Commercial Contracts Task Force, with over 16 years as a corporate sales trainer.
“The Houston market and its agents are in for a real treat,” says Frank Gay, CEO of JP & Associates REALTORSÂ®Â Franchise Division. “Chris is an incredibly driven, lucrative individual that possesses the skills and ability to create successful REALTORSÂ®. Without a doubt, there could not be a more suitable person to partner with in opening this new location.”
