The Best Decision I Ever Made – New @properties Franchisees Share the LOVE
CHICAGO and LAS VEGAS (October 26, 2021) – One year ago, @properties launched its franchise division, and in February the firm signed its first franchise affiliate in Detroit. Since then, the company has been quickly moving towards its goal of becoming a national brand, onboarding brokerages in Texas, Indiana and Wisconsin, with more to come before the end of 2021.
As a company, @properties prides itself on its people- and collaboration-focused corporate culture. Thus, @properties’ co-founder, Thad Wong, said, “It’s incredibly important to the company to grow the right way, carefully selecting affiliates with a similar culture and spirit that aligns with the @properties’ brand.”
Overwhelmingly, franchisees are attracted to @properties’ best-in-class technology, original coaching and training programs and award-winning marketing. Although each of the franchise markets is unique, the past year has proven that @properties’ brand translates into success across the country.
At the company’s recent Franchise Opportunity Summit in Chicago, franchisees shared their thoughts on their first few months with the @properties brand:
- “Our agents tell me they are incredibly grateful because joining @properties has elevated their business. It’s by far the best decision we’ve made as an organization.” – Eric Wahlstrom, co-owner and principal broker, @properties Detroit, whose agency has seen its annual sales volume triple since joining @properties
- “With increasing competition in our market, @properties’ technology solutions give our agents a real competitive advantage. But even before we thought about the tech and the training, we knew that @properties’ culture aligned with who we are.”— Rex Fischer, co-owner, @properties Indianapolis
- “What attracted me to @properties was the technology integration, which makes all of our agents’ lives so much easier.” – Piper Young, partner and vice president of strategic partnerships, @properties Dallas
