United® Real Estate Expands Franchise Presence to Indianapolis
Well-Established Real Estate Agency Affiliates with United to Amplify Their Offering
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - September 08, 2014 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - United® Real Estate, a fast-growing urban-centric real estate and franchise operation company, announces the addition of a new office in Indianapolis to its network of franchise offices, increasing the company’s presence within key real estate markets nationwide. After 10 years of owning and operating Sycamore Group Realtors, Paul and Chris Scherrer recently announced their conversion to a United Real Estate franchise.
"Several companies have tried to acquire or convert us," said Paul Scherrer, Managing Partner, United Real Estate – Indianapolis, "but no one offered us what United did. The Sycamore Group was designed to help agents keep their costs down – only requiring them to pay for the services they wanted – and United allows us to do this more effectively. With the training and technology tools, we can help agents save money and provide them with what they need to be more successful."
The Scherrer brothers started Sycamore Group Associates nearly 10 years ago, based on their father’s model. In 2013, the brothers merged their company with Sycamore Group Realtors – owned and operated by their father and his business partner, Fred Kortepeter. With more than 70 agents and 800 transactions last year, the group attracts high performing agents from around the Indianapolis area.
"Combining the United Real Estate franchise model with their existing brokerage provides a streamlined service offering to agents and buyers alike," said Peter Giese, President of United Real Estate. "With the training, technology and marketing tools we offer, agents will be able to grow their careers while continuing to work under a 100-percent commission model. We enthusiastically welcome Paul and Chris as our franchise partners, enabling us to bring the United Real Estate advantage to all the real estate agents in the Indianapolis area."
