United Country Named Among Best Franchises for Veterans

Lifestyle Real Estate Firm Provides Model Desired By Former Service Members

November 11, 2013 (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – United Country Real Estate has once again been listed as one of the best franchises for veterans by Franchise Business Review, who surveyed nearly 3,000 past military member franchisees, representing close to 300 franchise brands, to compile its list of the top 100 vet-friendly franchises. The research findings, published this week in Veterans and Franchising 2013, show that franchisees with military experience prefer certain franchise models.

"Veterans truly understand the American Dream," said Mike Duffy, president of United Country Real Estate. "Owning your own business and being your own boss is as steeped in American culture as the right to own land and property, and we are honored to give our U.S. service members the opportunity to pursue a career in real estate to realize all three."

According to the Franchise Business Review report, franchise owners who are veterans tend to rate their satisfaction highest include advertising and promotional programs, effective use of technology, ongoing support and system-wide communications. United Country management attributes the company’s inclusion on this list year after year to their ability to provide these tools in a consistent, unique and proven fashion to their franchisees. The company also offers special incentives to military veterans in respect of their service to the country.

"We always honor our military owners and agents and recognize the significant percentage of United Country affiliates that are veterans," Duffy said. "Whether a veteran is looking for a franchise opportunity or an agent career in real estate sales, United Country has developed extensive training programs and market-leading solutions to successfully compete in the lifestyle (non-urban) real estate market. The United Country Real Estate value proposition includes exclusive marketing tools, cutting-edge technology systems, auction services proprietary lead lists and extensive training to ensure agents and brokers have the tools and skills necessary to gain a competitive advantage in their markets."
