HomeSmart International Seeks Expansion Across the United States

Arizona Real Estate Firm Looks to Open New Franchise in San Francisco

November 07, 2013 // // PHOENIX – Real estate firm HomeSmart International is on a mission to continue its nationwide growth with intentions to franchise in San Francisco. Based in Phoenix, HomeSmart began franchising two years ago, offering one of the most attractive business models in the real estate industry.

HomeSmart CEO and President Chuck Lemire believes that expansion to San Francisco will continue the international growth of HomeSmart and provide great brokerage services through potential franchise owners’ leadership and experience in the Bay area. As the 14th most populous city in the United States, San Francisco is an ideal location for a HomeSmart franchise.

Since opening in January 2000, HomeSmart has had tremendous success by growing to over 7,000 agents nationwide. HomeSmart provides their Franchise Partners with specific systems and technology that create efficiency in operations and keep costs down while allowing exponential growth.

"I am thrilled about the potential opportunity to bring HomeSmart to San Francisco," said John Wuycheck, Vice President of Franchising for HomeSmart. "This franchise partnership will now allow agents throughout the Bay area to have an end to end paperless system supported with cutting edge technology to serve the needs of their customers and clients."

HomeSmart’s mission is to become the #1 residential real estate brand by delivering low-fee, high-value brokerage services through SMART execution and service (operational excellence). Since they began expanding throughout the United States, HomeSmart has created a like-minded family of profitable franchises who emulate SMART execution and service in every community of the nation.

HomeSmart emphasizes the importance of being aware of client needs and exceeding their expectations, which in turn builds strong relationships with the buyers and sellers in every market. Created by Founder and Chairman Matt Widdows and his development team, HomeSmart’s proprietary software positions its franchise partners ahead of the curve—saving business owners huge costs attributed to web hosting, lead generation and back office systems.

HomeSmart continues to open new offices and add jobs across the United States, with offices throughout eleven states and international operations in Shanghai, China. HomeSmart has most recently franchised in Chicago, IL and opened their first East Coast office in Tampa, FL. They added approximately 3,500 new jobs in 2012, and their goal is to continue to grow nationally and internationally in 2013 and for years to come.
