IRVINE, Calif. - May 19, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Realty ONE Group Affiliates strengthens their foundation in key markets and continues to add top performing franchisees to the team. They are mirroring the success and fast-paced growth of Realty ONE Group's company stores that have been marketplace leaders since 2005 in Nevada, Arizona and California. Since the beginning of the year, new franchise locations have opened in California, Colorado, Texas, and Oregon.
"We knew that like-minded owners and agents would appreciate our model, culture, team spirit and reputation, and that has been proven by the top-notch caliber of franchisees continuously joining us," said Kuba Jewgieniew, Founder and CEO of Realty ONE Group.
The following dynamic and forward-thinking Realty ONE Group Franchises recently announced their affiliation with the firm:
Realty ONE Group Solutions, Santa Clarita, Calif., Patrick Raach
"When I was researching potential franchise opportunities, I knew Realty ONE Group was the one as soon as I saw their presentation. They answered every question and didn't make false promises like you hear from others. This honesty made me feel like it was the real deal. There was more of a human connection, so much less corporate. They are just so refreshing compared to traditional firms."
Realty ONE Group Trilogy, San Bernardino, Calif., Solomon Niazi
"We've been watching as one by one, high-producing agents were leaving the 'bigger known names' to join Realty ONE Group and decided we needed to open our own office to have a piece of that phenomenal success. We could not be more thrilled with how the association with Realty ONE Group has supported our launch. We have the support of this national competitor behind us to help us win."
Realty ONE Group Alliance, San Mateo, Calif., Rosemarie Figueroa
"I knew that I needed to be the first in the area with the Realty ONE Group name. Their reputation, their support and their focus on agents make it easy for me to attract the best and move us to the next level."
Realty ONE Group Lone Star, Houston, Texas, Chance Brown
"After meeting Realty ONE Group in California, it took five minutes to realize I was in the right place – it's not just the mechanics, though those are superior, but the culture. There's a younger feeling, a family environment. Everyone understands that we're going to work, but having fun doing it. As friendly as the model is to agents, the franchise model is just as friendly to franchisees."
Realty ONE Group Partners, Dallas, Texas, Tomas Castella
"Joining with Realty ONE Group has exceeded all expectations in relation to the business model, tools, marketing and support that they offer. I've been impressed with the quality of the people in every area of the organization and love their philosophy of abundance and the way they have built the whole company around the needs of agents, clients and brokers. They allow agents to reach their full potential."
Realty ONE Group Premier, Denver, Colo., Gary Carlson
"When I was trying to decide what my next move should be, the package that Realty ONE Group presented stood out like nothing else. I am amazed at how great Realty ONE Group is to work with; they truly do have the best interest of the franchises at heart in providing us the resources needed to be successful."
Realty ONE Group Platinum, Eugene, Ore., Erick Harpole
"Realty ONE Group is heading in the direction of the future of real estate. They are a class act and provide much needed positive direction for the industry."
Each of the franchisees has ambitious growth plans, and all confirm they are well on their way.
"We know that Realty ONE Group is a catalyst to transform the traditional, broken real estate industry and is creating new norms and a new culture. Clearly others are hungry to replicate the incredible success we have achieved with our agent-centric focus. They want to be part of the winning team," said Rick Hudson, Realty ONE Group's executive vice president of franchise development.
Hudson said there are plans to announce other franchises shortly, citing extreme interest in Realty ONE Group through its non-conventional franchise partner agreement.
Franchisees rave not only about the tools, systems, technology and coaching, but the culture and mission of Realty ONE Group – to make the industry a better place, to make their agents more successful and to improve the communities where they live and work through outreach like their "ONE Day" and their new foundation, Realty ONE Group Cares.
