Annually, Franchise Times Magazine reports the top franchises nationwide. In 2009, Advance Realty debuted at #214 and is among the top fifteen in The Next 100 Top Franchises report. Advance Realty placed 6th on the list when compared to other real estate franchises. “We continue to gain on our competition and grow despite the economy. Our growth has been driven by our ability to work with our franchisees as a team. Today as a franchisor one needs to recognize the necessity to have compassion and use it as a positive and motivating force. We are committed to serving the needs of our clients, office owners, and agents.” notes Harry W. Blondell, CEO.
The figures used to determine the ranking were from the 2008 year-end sales reports and unit numbers as of the first quarter of 2009; at that time, Advance had 18 offices. In the nine months since, the company has added 11 more locations and grown to 29 offices in seven states with more contracts pending. With such record expansion and momentum, Advance Realty is confident that their rankings in several industry metrics will climb even higher in 2010.
