"We were impressed by what we learned about Jim Weichert and his people when we visited New Jersey headquarters."
Ontario, California (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Homa Javadi and Arturo Rubio, owners of H & A Realty in Ontario, California, have taken a step up in their longtime partnership, announcing they are now the independent owners and operators of a franchise with Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. (WREA). WEICHERT, REALTORS® - H & A Associates raised the banner in the Inland Empire for the expanding national brand on July 14.
The agency also launched an ambitious recruiting campaign on July 8 called “Career Opportunity Night.” The sessions will be available every Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Weichert® office located at 2411 South Grove Avenue in Ontario. A grand opening event will be announced at a later date. Meanwhile, Javadi, Rubio and the staff and sales team can be reached at 909-390-4663.
Javadi, speaking for himself and Rubio, who is the firm’s Broker of Record, said they joined the Weichert franchise network to shift direction from doing “business as usual” to the franchise organization’s “clearly defined operating system for marketing and managing a real estate business,” with a focus on customer service system in place.
“We were impressed not only by what we heard about the organization’s reputation from other businesses, but by what we learned about Jim Weichert and his people when we visited New Jersey headquarters,” Javadi said. Specifically, the entire management team, from founder Jim Weichert, to Weichert Affiliates President Martin J. Rueter and his staff, is made up of people who have been in the field as Realtors, Brokers, office owners, managers and sales people. “Jim was an agent himself,” Javadi said. “He has started as a Realtor and knows what it takes and what needs to be done.”
Rueter welcomed the company. “We are proud to announce our presence in Ontario with the addition of such an outstanding team as Homa and Arturo,” he said. “We have high expectations that together, we’ll bring superior service to the Inland Empire communities they serve.”
