United Real Estate Group Continues Rapid Growth, Earning Worldwide Recognition

Stepfan Swanepoel Ranks CEO Dan Duffy in Power 200

January 22, 2015 // Franchising.com // KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Dan Duffy has been recognized as part of the next generation of real estate brokers by real estate education and consultancy firm T3 Experts. The firm is led by real estate speaker, consultant and author Stefan Swanepoel, along with technology and brokerage experts Michael McClure and Jack Miller. Since acquiring United Country Real Estate in 2006, Duffy was the only person to successfully launch two real estate companies during possibly the worst housing crisis in America's history – United Real Estate and United Country Auction Services.

"We are honored to be recognized by Stefan for the second year in a row," said Dan Duffy, CEO of United Real Estate. "United Real Estate Group is always looking to improve upon its offerings to agents and brokers. Our overarching goal is to provide our agents with the tools to be successful and with our ongoing expansion to top national markets. We continually prove that United's business model is unlike any other in the industry."

Since the 2006 acquisition, Duffy has had a significant impact on the real estate industry, growing United Country Real Estate to rank as the sixth largest real estate franchise in the United States. Launching United Country Auction Services in 2006, the company has been named among The Land Report magazine's "Top Auction Houses" each year since its inception. The newest of the companies, United Real Estate, operates more than 20 offices and continues to grow its agents, offices and transactions exponentially.

Much of the recent growth can be attributed to United's 100-percent commission strategy and focus on developing top-performing agents with its unmatched agent-centric business model. The United Real Estate combines a comprehensive suite of support tools with access to a national referral network to real estate agents and to owners of real estate companies through a franchise offering.

"Continuing to expand our presence adds a new dimension and point of differentiation for all United offices," said Duffy. "Our goal is simple: to create the preferred partner of choice for buyers and sellers of residential real estate on a global basis. Reinvesting in ourselves has provided the tools and talent needed to continue our rapid growth."
