He is further responsible for assisting with the identification and recruitment of additional franchised locations in the greater southeastern Michigan market.
Michael McClure, CPA, the President and CEO of Professional One Franchising, LLC, had this to say: "We are proud to add Brian to the management team. As our entire franchise concept is predicated on an unwavering commitment to leading the industry in terms of professionalism and excellence, Brian is the ideal candidate to reinforce that commitment."
McClure continued: "By his own admission, Brian was initially attracted to us specifically because of our branding concept, which is unique for real estate, and our proprietary, industry-leading Commission $haring© passive income program. He was receptive to our message because he shares the Professional One management team's vision of the path the industry has to take to survive. We think this proves the validity of our concept: that culture really does matter, and that people are attracted to corporate ideals that line up with their own personal codes of ethics. Brian is a perfect illustration of this."
Stacey Bibik, the Professional One Director of Franchise Development-West based in Boulder, CO, added, "Our focus is on the qualitative - excellence, professionalism, integrity, etc. - rather than the quantitative - sales volumes, agent rankings, etc. That's not to say that sales volumes don't matter - of course they do. But we believe that if we first focus on the right intangibles, this will produce the hoped-for tangible results. The press is absolutely full of stories right now about how the public is fed up with the overall lack of competency within the real estate industry. That bodes well for us, as we know that people are justifiably demanding more, and that's what you get from Professional One real estate professionals. Brian is the right person to perpetuate our Mission Statements and our Core Values."
Wines stated that he was "delighted to have this opportunity to help provide real solutions to an industry facing so many challenges," and that "the Professional One messages of professionalism, excellence and income diversification are absolutely perfect for the vast majority of real estate professionals looking for a better way." Wines concluded by saying, "Like many agents, the biggest question I had about joining a new franchise like Professional One was whether this would have any impact on my real estate sales business. After working here for several years, I can tell you that my volume has not been negatively impacted, and the best part is that my clients absolutely love the Professional One brand image - they get it."
