Oklahoma City's Twin Rivers Realty Joins RE/MAX Franchise
Franchise Partner Adds Instant Brand Power
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Twin Rivers Realty, located in the Oklahoma City suburb of Yukon, announced that it has recently partnered with RE/MAX, a leading real estate network in the United States and the number one in Canada.
Fourteen-year real estate veteran Brian Woodward, co-Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Twin Rivers Realty, had been a member of a competing network for the past twelve years. RE/MAX's leadership, vision, and resources, however, fueled his decision to make the switch.
"The decision to join RE/MAX was a no-brainer," says Woodward. "My wife, Susan, and I knew that RE/MAX was a company run by REALTORS®. It's an organization that understands what we face every day in the marketplace."
The Woodward's bring more than thirty Sales Associates into the RE/MAX family, who collectively ranked number one in total sales volume in 2009 in the Yukon market.
"There's a buzz of excitement in the office," says Woodward, whose office closed $65.5 million in total volume and 437 total transactions in 2009. "During a recent in-office RE/MAX LeadStreet training, our associates were getting leads before we even finished the course. That's powerful!" exclaimed Brian.
The move to RE/MAX brings benefits to both companies. Woodward had been searching for better brand reputation and a partner who specialized in growing businesses. The addition of Twin Rivers Realty fulfills RE/MAX's drive to grow its Oklahoma City market share.
"Twin Rivers Realty is the cornerstone of our mission to take back Oklahoma City," says Wayne Fredrick, REMAX Mid-States & Dixie Regional Director of Business Development. "Literally overnight, we now have a huge presence in the Yukon and Mustang areas, which will only get larger as this great group of associates become engaged in the RE/MAX system."
Not all real estate franchises are created equal. The most successful have stellar reputations, are well respected by clients, offer business tools to help brokers and agents succeed, offer opportunities for continued learning, and provide training.
"The best in the business continue to seek out opportunities that will take their business to even higher levels," says RE/MAX Mid-States & Dixie Region Owner Dennis Curtin. "While most real estate companies are retrenching in these challenging times, Coldwell Banker Twin Rivers Realty made the wise decision to come aboard the RE/MAX organization. We see this as a perfect fit," adds Curtin.
RE/MAX is a leading industry force in the United States and the number one residential real estate network in Canada. Rated number 22 on Entrepreneur's list of Top 500 Low-Cost Franchises of 2010, RE/MAX International offers its members an international referral network, advanced training courses, state-of-the-art technological tools and national advertising campaigns. It was the first and only real estate network to invent and maintain a satellite television network (RE/MAX Satellite Network) dedicated to real estate professionals. RE/MAX is owned by its founders.
In the 2010 REAL Trends 500 survey, RE/MAX agents and offices far outperformed all competitors, including Coldwell Banker, Keller Williams, Century 21 and Prudential Real Estate. Averaging an impressive 14.4 transaction sides per year, RE/MAX agents worked on 46% more home sales than their next closest competitor.
