Since the opening, the owners may have changed, but the ideals, concepts, and even the location on which the company was founded, have not.
Hendersonville, NC (PRWEB) January 14, 2014
Preferred Realty, a Hendersonville-based real estate agency specializing in residential properties, is celebrating its 25th anniversary in the real estate business. When the agency opened in 1988, it had six owners. This was the only company of its kind in Henderson County and one of very few in North Carolina.
Unlike the franchised companies, Preferred Realty is owned and operated by member agents. They started with a concept that was entirely new to the real estate world - a privately held company that shared goals and ideas openly and freely.
“The concept began with a group of like-minded realtors having a common goal of bettering services for buyers and sellers alike,” said Jim Phelan, Broker-In-Charge of Preferred Realty, who has been with the company since 1999. “The business concept has proven successful by an individual's success becoming the group’s success. Since the opening, the owners may have changed, but the ideals, concepts, and even the location on which the company was founded, have not.”
Mr. Phelan went on to credit the member agents’ knowledge, experience, and superior ability as reasons the company has remained strong, both over the course of its 25-year history and in the face of the economic downturn of recent years. Mr. Phelan also expressed his confidence in the agency’s future.
“I am extremely proud of our team of professional and experienced realtors. Hendersonville, NC residents and community organizations have also been extremely supportive, and we’re looking forward to celebrating with everyone again when we reach the 50 year anniversary,” Mr. Phelan added.
Preferred Realty is located at 227 7th Ave E, Hendersonville, NC, 28792-3755 and is always looking for experienced agents to join their growing company.
