WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - February 10, 2016 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Hi-Land Properties LLC, a West Palm Beach-based independently owned and operated franchise of HomeVestors of America, also known as the We Buy Ugly Houses® company, won top honors at the company’s 2015 awards at its annual convention. Hi-Land Properties won first place in Top Sales Volume - an award that recognizes the franchise that has the highest dollar volume of total property sales out of 660 franchisees nationwide. The franchise also took home honors in two other categories.
“Hi-Land Properties strives every year to go above and beyond HomeVestors’ standards since we started our franchise in 2005,” said Don Cameron, Hi-Land Properties LLC. “Our company’s ability to perform at a high level has to do with our commitment to stick to the game plan and continue to reinvest in our business even during the market downturn,” said Cameron. “I believe our success is largely based on our ability to provide home sellers in South Florida services they would not be able to receive if they sold their property through a realtor or to another investor. Our experience handling a variety of situations from probates to foreclosures to back taxes, coupled with covering the cost of all normal closing expenses, is a huge bonus to our clients.”
Cameron continued, “Sellers appreciate our flexibility to close at whatever time best meets their situation. Our business model of offering home owners a fair value for their property in a fragile economy has proven to be very successful.”
The HomeVestors annual meeting, held in Phoenix, Arizona in early December, recognized the outstanding achievements of HomeVestors’ nationwide network of independently owned and operated franchisees. HomeVestors also recognized Hi-Land Properties for its position of second place in the Top Sales Units category and second place in the Top Closer category for homes purchased in 2015.
