National Realty Group named to Top 100 New Franchises List
Leola, PA â€“ Up-and-coming franchise company National Realty Group â€“ known for its innovative full service approach to residential real estate â€“ has been â€œdiscoveredâ€ by franchise industry veterans and recognized as one of the â€œTop 100 New Franchisesâ€ by Franchise Market, a national trade magazine that partners with the SBA, SCORE and Small Business Development Centers throughout the country.
The chain had caught the eye of Sean Kelly, a franchise industry veteran engaged by Franchise Market magazine to nominate new, high-potential companies that had recently begun offering franchises. Kellyâ€™s PA-based company IdeaFarm publishes a new-franchise scouting report called FranBest.Com.
According to Kelly, the upstart franchise chain provides a unique opportunity for real estate agents looking to own their own business in the booming residential real estate market.
Residential real estate continues to be one of the largest and strongest sectors in the U.S. economy. Nearly two trillion dollars are exchanged each year in the sale of new and existing homes. However, the availability of property listings on the Internet, new discount brokerage businesses and declining commissions have made it more difficult for traditional real estate agents to survive, much less thrive, despite a booming market.
According to Kelly, National Realty Group founder Jeff Maas has pioneered an innovative, one-stop real estate system that provides better service to real estate consumers, and an enhanced potential revenue model for his franchise owners. As owners of the National Realty Group franchise, real estate agents can offer high quality assistance in buying and selling homes, but can also provide full mortgage and escrow services through their NationalOne Mortgage and Escrow 1 affiliates.
According to Jeff Maas, National Realty Group franchise provides the ultimate win-win situation: enhanced service, convenience and efficiency for home buyers and sellers, and additional potential revenue streams for franchise owners.
