February 13, 2014 // Franchising.com // KANSAS CITY, Mo. – United® Real Estate, a fast-growing urban-centric real estate and franchise operation company, today announces that Kevin Oldham has been named as Chief Marketing Officer. As CMO, Oldham will be responsible for creating value in United Real Estate’s markets while working with the company’s partners to secure continued business growth.
Oldham will work to expand upon the current technology and marketing support tools available to both agents and brokers through United’s unique brokerage model. The United 100 percent commission strategy focuses on developing top performing agents by providing a comprehensive suite of services including a national referral network, personal branding tools and a café style office available to agents, brokers and their clients.
"This is an exciting time to be a part of the United Real Estate team," said Kevin Oldham. "Having already surpassed our own expectations of franchise growth, we are fully prepared to expand our platform offerings for not only agents and brokers, but also the consumer. United’s suite of support tools is designed to ensure success, and we are excited about taking those services to the next level."
In a recent interview with Kelly Mitchell, industry-influencer and creator of real estate podcast, Agent Caffeine, United’s CEO, Dan Duffy, shares his insight into the coming growth of United’s business model and his plans to cater the company’s services specifically for the consumer. Much like United’s contemporary office design, which eliminates the need to go off site in order to complete day-to-day operational tasks, United will be growing its technology platform to give consumers all of the information they need when buying a home.
"We do not want our agents, brokers or consumers to have to go elsewhere in order to get the information and resources they require to be successful," said Dan Duffy. "We have looked at other companies outside of the industry to better understand the user experience and with Kevin’s rich understanding of real estate, technology and marketing, we are fully equipped to expand United’s services and accelerate our already rapid growth."
