September 11, 2013 // Franchising.com // IRVINE, Calif. - Realty ONE Group recently celebrated its two year anniversary of acquiring John Hall & Associates -- and based on the unprecedented growth, it's clear it should be called the "Terrific Twos."
"It started with two industry leaders coming together with a common vision, and it has allowed us expand in more ways than we ever thought possible," said Kuba Jewgieniew, Realty ONE Group’s founder and CEO.
Since the acquisition, Realty ONE Group has grown to 1,550 professionals, which represents an increase of 116 percent. In 2013 alone, Realty ONE Group's Arizona offices have completed 5,060 transaction, worth $1.2 billion - and the numbers increase exponentially very month.
"This marriage with such a reputable and innovative company has helped transform Realty ONE Group into a market leader in Arizona,” said Jim Sexton. He notes that this alliance has transformed everything from the small - such as a modern, appealing look forthe offices - to the major, such as improved agent compensation and updated technology and agent support.
Sexton mentioned that the agents appreciated the streamlined agent payment process, which allows them to get paid quicker after closing; and they have found that Realty ONE Group’s fee structure puts more money in their pockets.
He also said that the introduction of approved vendors has been beneficial since it provides access to vetted companies that can offer the best products, services and features.In the past, he said that most of the marketing had been up to the individual agent, while Realty ONE Group offers a complete suite of services. The firm now has five offices with more on the way, strategically located throughout the Valley. Sexton said that the company change had been almost seamless to the public with the same service and quality they had come to rely on from John Hall and Associates, which had been a Phoenix mainstay since 1974.
