Miami, Florida (PRWEB) March 29, 2013
WEICHERT, REALTORS® - Best Beach Real Estate owners Abraham Chehebar and Alberto Bassal have announced a sixth office opening for the company that joined the Weichert® franchise network just over six years ago. The partners became Weichert affiliates in 2006 with locations in Miami Beach and Miami. Offices were subsequently added in Weston, Boca Raton and Ft. Lauderdale. The firm’s growth in south Florida “puts us on track for meeting our goal of becoming one of, if not the, biggest Weichert franchise,” Bassal said.
The newest addition, at 17100 Collins Avenue, Suite 205, Sunny Isles Beach, brings the number of agents serving south Florida under the WEICHERT, REALTORS® - Best Beach Real Estate banner to 300, while expanding the opportunity to serve a much larger market. “This location is very important to us,” Bassal said. “It positions us to provide better service to our clients in Sunny Isles, Aventura, Golden Beach, Hollywood and Bal Harbor area.” The area, known for its million dollar properties and a vast inventory of high end buildings, is home to many of the company’s agents who are already serving clients throughout the market.
“We are actively recruiting new and veteran Realtors to focus on this market,” said Chehebar. Among the company’s time-proven tools and systems for agents are in-person and online training, mentoring, one-on-one coaching for experienced agents, and the Weichert® Lead Network, a perennial award winner that sends leads directly to Weichert agents from consumers who call into the Weichert call center as a result of viewing listings on line.
When the Miami based company opened its fifth office in Ft. Lauderdale (July 2012), it was the second highest producing company in the Weichert Affiliates network. “That’s still the case, as of the December 2012 year-to-date report, and as of the latest, February 2013,” said Weichert Affiliates Senior Vice President Bill Scott.
Scott, a long-time south Florida real estate professional and original member of the Weichert franchising team, has worked closely with Chehebar and Bassal since they joined the franchise. “WEICHERT, REALTORS – Best Beach Real Estate continues to grow and excel because they do it right,” Scott said. “They brought their exceptional backgrounds and talent to an organization with a proven operating system and put everything together to serve the market they know so well.”
Chehebar, the company’s broker/owner, and manager/owner Bassal, joined WREA with an impressive 10-year local track record as partners in a brokerage firm, preceded by an apartment building investment and home renovation business. They base their success with the earlier ventures and as Weichert affiliates on the company philosophy of “exceptional customer service, a family oriented approach to doing business and extensive knowledge of the neighborhoods and overall market,” Chehebar said. Chehebar and Bassal are available at 305-866-0777. Agents servicing the Sunny Isles/Aventura area can be reached at 305-704-3699. Company website is http://www.bestbeach.net.
