Pinehurst, NC (PRWEB) May 02, 2013
Debra Serino-Brenner has announced her company’s new affiliation with Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. as the franchise organization’s representative in the greater Pinehurst market. Newly named WEICHERT, REALTORS® - Town & Country, the company at 30 Chinquapin Road, formerly Brenner Real Estate, is now an independently owned and operated member of the Weichert® network.
“I’ve been watching Weichert’s growth from the sidelines over time and am excited to steer this amazing company to its full potential in my market,” said Broker/Owner Serino-Brenner, a long-established broker/developer whose earned reputation began some 27 years ago.
“Debbie is ideally suited to maximize the Weichert way of doing business,” said Weichert Affiliates President Martin Rueter. “The brand is in the good hands of a broker whose vast and varied experience is matched only by her realistic appreciation of what’s possible,” Rueter said.
Serino-Brenner came to Pinehurst from Boston in 1988. A graduate cum laude of Boston College with a degree in accounting and economics, she got into real estate “because that’s what I really wanted to do,” she said. Dealing with people had more appeal than accounting so in 1985 she earned her sales associate license and worked for three years as an agent. In Pinehurst, she expanded her sales experience into development, building and marketing such projects as Linden Pines Village and Cotswold Townhomes. Current projects include Linden Close which is about to launch, 19 luxury home sites in the historic district Village of Pinehurst, and The Arboretum, a Southern Pines community which includes single family residences and cottage homes.
Serino-Brenner was approached by and investigated several other franchise organizations and decided that “Weichert makes a lot of sense to me.” She is impressed with Weichert’s systems, tools, recruiting operations, relocation outreach, consistently top ranked Internet presence, agent training and award-winning Weichert® Lead Network, which provides leads direct to agents.
The company has “an industry reputation that deserves mention,” Serino-Brenner pointed out. Recent news of the brand’s rise since launching its first affiliate in 2002 is the no. 2 ranking by Entrepreneur magazine among all other competitors in the real estate category in the “Entrepreneur 2013 Franchise 500®” list, an annual ranking of America’s top franchise opportunities.
The Pinehurst agency is home to a team of established Broker Associates and is seeking additional “serious professionals” to increase the sales staff. WEICHERT, REALTORS® - Town & Country holds membership in the Pinehurst Southern Pines Area Association of REALTORS® (PSPAR), North Carolina Real Estate Commission, NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR) and the Moore County Chamber of Commerce. The firm can be reached at 910-295-9040.
