For his part, Smith states, “I am very excited to join JPAR Franchising, which has already achieved the status of fastest-growing 100-percent commission brokerage and is now one of America’s hottest business franchises. JPAR has proven that its transaction fee model, combined with great technology and a productivity standard, is the model agents and brokers are looking for. I am eager to accelerate the trajectory of JPAR’s growth.”
