Inman News Features United® Real Estate Franchise Model and CEO Dan Duffy

Expanding Franchise Group Recognized for Rapid Growth and Unique Model

July 17, 2014 - KANSAS CITY, Mo. and SYDNEY, Australia – United® Real Estate, the rapidly expanding North American franchise network, and CEO Dan Duffy were recently featured in Inman News after finalizing a partnership with Colliers International's Asia-Pacific residential subsidiary, PRDnationwide (PRD) that will see the two groups combine their significant influence and resources.

Operating under the United PRD International brand, the newly formed alliance plans to be highly active on the global residential property landscape, with the first order of business to be an expansion of its coverage in the United Kingdom, Europe, Asia-Pacific and other select international markets. PRDnationwide's 115 offices will slowly transition to the United PRD International brand.

"United Real Estate will disrupt the industry with its "Freedom Model," said Dan Duffy, CEO and Chairman, United Real Estate, which has grown to over 1,000 agents since launching in 2011. "Agents pay a flat fee for technology, marketing and lead-gen services and keep 100 percent of their commissions. Our customer is the agent."

Both groups have made a significant financial commitment and will share resources to grow the international business and attract suitable partners in key growth locations.

"United Real Estate has continued to innovate and expand its service offerings and referral network through the establishment of full-service franchise brokerage offices in urban centers across the country," said Peter Giese, President of United Real Estate. "With the addition of PRDnationwide, we have no doubt that we'll be able to continue our rapid pace of success."

By year's end, United Real Estate expects to have 22 brokerages in its franchise network in more than 30 exclusive territories. Territories are defined by the area that can support the business goals of a franchisee, Duffy said. United currently has segmented out approximately 400 territories in the U.S.
