Dallas, TX, September 16, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- United Real Estate | Richmond has announced that it has opened a second office location in Hanover, Virginia. Overwhelming recent growth has spurred John and Jeffrey Finn, managing broker and owners of the franchise, to expand their footprint in the Central Virginia market. When the Finns’ purchased the United franchise in 2015, they launched the business with only six agents and have grown their company to an impressive 153 agents in three short years.
With the support of the United model, United | Richmond has become a fierce competitor among the brokerages in their market and even the community is beginning to take notice of this rapidly-growing enterprise. According to the Richmond Association of REALTORS®, United | Richmond currently ranks as the seventh largest real estate firm in Richmond and continues to gain traction with productive agents joining the innovative brokerage daily.
“The growth we have seen as a United Real Estate franchise has been phenomenal, I never imagined that we could grow this fast,” said John Finn, senior managing broker of United | Richmond. “This is the first organization that I’ve ever been involved in that allows us to grow organically at a local level. Agents in the Virginia market are recognizing the benefits available with United and we hope to share the model with more agents as we continue to expand our footprint throughout the Commonwealth.”
One of the key differentiators of the United model is the support agents receive from their brokers and office staff. As a result of United | Richmond’s recent growth, the Finns’ are continuing to invest in supporting their agents through the expansion of their business interests. In 2017, the Finns’ established Piedmont Title & Escrow LLC, and in early 2018 they acquired Richmond’s oldest black-owned real estate firm, Robinson Harris and Company, which will provide consulting and development services to municipalities as well as the private sector. “We have been busy,” says Jeffrey Finn, principal broker of United | Richmond. “Our expansions ensure our agents have the technology, services and support they need to continue their success in the industry.” The growth also includes additions to the management team, with the hire of a Director of Agent Development and a Director of Marketing.
United Real Estate | Richmond plans to further expand its footprint with Chesapeake and Virginia Beach locations opening mid-2019. The new Hanover office is located at 9097 Atlee Station Road near the I-295 Exchange. A grand opening is scheduled for Wednesday, October 24, 2018, with additional details to come.
