United Country Achieves Sixth Largest
Real Estate Franchise in the US
Up from Eighth in just Two Years
Share |

Aug. 1, 2011 – (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – United Country Real Estate® has achieved the rank of sixth
largest real estate franchise business in the United States, a jump of two positions since the last survey. This leap has occurred in just two years and during what some have called the most challenging real estate market in modern history.

“Our aggressive investment in marketing and technology service offerings to support our affiliated
offices and agents has paid big dividends in the past few years,” said Mike Duffy, president of United Country Real Estate. “We understand clearly, now more than ever, we must continue to support each agent’s efforts to grow their business while keeping their costs to a minimum with unique and innovative programs no other company offers. When we invest, thousands of agents and auctioneers benefit from that investment and we have no intent to stop investing heavily regardless of market conditions as we have done even more over the last few years.”

The ranking is released every other year by REALTOR® Magazine as part of their Comparison of Residential Real Estate Franchises. This report compares number of sales associates and brokers;
number of offices; target area; franchise programs; total investment; and other factors. This ranking combines the office count of each company’s controlled real estate brands.

Also this year, United Country Real Estate was once again named one of the top military friendly franchises by G.I. Jobs in their recently released 2011 Military Friendly Franchise list. United Country
is among only seven percent of all franchise brands, even those outside of Real Estate, nationwide to receive this honor. The list was compiled through extensive research including polls of thousands of franchises nationwide and precisely developed methodology and criteria, which revealed the top franchises for America’s veterans.

“We are obviously thrilled to receive recognition from these organizations,” said Duffy. “We are even more excited about accelerating the growth, strength and momentum that these rankings reflect as we continue to add solutions for real estate brokers, agents and auctioneers in the U.S. and select foreign markets.”
