“Our strong growth in the region has allowed us to structure franchise opportunities and we have seen our model and technology work in both small and large markets." - HomeSmart Founder Matt Widdows
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) May 28, 2012
Arizona-based real estate brokerage firm HomeSmart is continuing to grow by opening franchises outside of Phoenix. The nationwide company recently began making its way to other cities in states across the United States offering one of the most attractive business models in the real estate industry.
Since opening in January 2000, HomeSmart has had tremendous success by growing to over 4,300 agents in Arizona alone. Such unparalleled growth has catapulted HomeSmart to rank as the largest real estate brokerage in the southwestern United States and among the top ten brokerages in the country.
This month, HomeSmart launched franchises in California including Santa Rosa, Modesto, and Palm Springs, as well as offices in Arizona in Ahwatukee and Green Valley. The brokerage also has international operations in Beijing, China. Their goal is to continue to open franchises in cities across the United States.
“We are excited to take our model nationwide and for the future of HomeSmart,” said Founder Matt Widdows, who ranks in the Top Ten National Independent Companies by Inman News. “Our strong growth in the region has allowed us to structure franchise opportunities and we have seen our model and technology work in both small and large markets. HomeSmart has built its reputation on exceptional customer service with our unique franchise package that gives our brokers and agents a competitive advantage in this industry.”
HomeSmart’s proprietary software puts its franchise partners ahead of the curve. Developed by Widdows and his development team, the reputable systems are proven to save business owners huge costs attributed to web hosting, lead generation and back office systems. This allows the franchise owners to provide the industry leading technology and support to their agents while offering a competitive commission structure. Other advantages to HomeSmart’s franchise program include a virtual receptionist, generous fee structure, and a full suite of branding and marketing products.
HomeSmart prides itself on successfully blending technology with a personal touch, something that is often lost in the industry. They continue to implement new technologies that empower its agents to provide outstanding service to their clients. This summer, HomeSmart will launch a new mobile application allowing residents to access market information at their fingertips. Users can take notes, rank properties, and share properties they like on social networking sites with friends.
The Arizona brokerage donates time and money to many national and local charities, including Phoenix Children’s Hospital, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Back to School 4 Kids, American Diabetes, Make a Wish Foundation and more.
