Margaret Ford & Associates Joins Real Living Real Estate Brokerage Network

Charlotte, NC-based brokerage to operate as Real Living Margaret Ford Realty

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - June 20, 2016 - (BUSINESS WIRE) - Real Living Real Estate, one of the nation's leading real estate franchisors and a member of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage networks, today announced that Margaret Ford & Associates has joined the network operating as Real Living Margaret Ford Realty.

Brokerage Owner Margaret Ford said Real Living Real Estate was an ideal match for the Charlotte-based company, with a brand philosophy and vision closely aligned to her own. “One of the biggest draws is the Real Living slogan: ‘The Power of Us, the Freedom to Be You,’” she said. “I’ve never wanted my company to be like any other but I want us to be backed by the strength of a national network with the best technology and resources to help my agents - and their clients - succeed.”

Ford added that the turnkey tools offered by Real Living will allow her to concentrate on the strength of her brokerage: relationships. “It’s so reassuring to know the structure and systems are already in place so we can focus on what real estate is really about, and that’s the people,” she said. “I want to build a culture where the person-to-person aspect of the broker-client relationship isn’t lost in the fast-pace of technology. When you have a culture built on people, clients will naturally gravitate to your business because they’ll know they’re working with agents who care.”

With their affiliation, Real Living Margaret Ford Realty agents gain access to a comprehensive and integrated suite of resources aimed at helping sales professionals and their clients successfully navigate the home buying and selling process. “We’re excited to have the advantage of the tools and professional development of a national brand,” Ford explained. “But we’ll also be carrying a name known locally and continuing our local approach to real estate.”

Bob McAdams, president of Real Living Real Estate, welcomed Real Living Margaret Ford Realty to the network. “Margaret and the team are well respected throughout the Charlotte area for their quality service and expertise,” he said. “We’re proud they’ve chosen to join the Real Living family and know they’ve got a very bright future ahead.”

Real Living Margaret Ford Realty bases operations at 233 S. Sharon Amity Road Ste. 105, Charlotte, NC 28211; (704) 362-2233.
