MORRIS PLAINS, NJ—Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. continued to expand its national franchise footprint with the addition of 53 new offices in 2016. The addition of new offices last year increases the Weichert franchise presence to 340 affiliate offices in 39 states.
The continued growth of the nationally recognized real estate brand was driven largely by the Midwest and South regions, which accounted for nearly two-thirds of the new offices. Illinois led Midwest growth, with eight new Weichert affiliate offices, while Georgia saw the largest increase in the South with four new affiliates added to the national franchise system.
Part of the last year’s growth also included Weichert expanding its franchise footprint in the highly competitive Southern California and Pacific Northwest real estate markets. New offices opened in San Clemente, CA and Bellevue, WA. Weichert also opened its first affiliate office in Western Colorado and a third office in Nevada, which continues to rebound after being one of the hardest hit real estate markets of the recession.
“It’s exciting to see the Weichert franchise network continue to grow across the country at such a rapid pace,” said Bill Scavone, president and chief operating officer of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. “Our continued growth is rooted, in part, by the amazing marketing support and management systems we can provide new affiliates to help them capture a larger share of their local real estate market.”
