At Weichert we’ve seen all the reasons brokerages fail or succeed. Today’s brokers are getting squeezed from every angle, struggling to preserve margins, struggling to hire and keep talented sales associates, and struggling to differentiate themselves in a crowded local market. It’s no wonder that many of the brokers that come to us are still spending most of their time listing and selling their own properties just to keep their business going.
The Weichert real estate franchise system goes way beyond our powerful national brand name. It is a proven system that gives broker-owners both the leads and the tools that will finally allow them to achieve real growth in their business. It is a relationship; it's like a family; and it gets results where other franchise systems can’t. Most of all it is a system that complements your independent style and allows you to synthesize your own approach in your local area.
When You’re An Independent Broker, It’s ALL About You
You’re not just the broker/owner of a real estate company, you’re the problem solver in chief, HR department, marketing director, advertising manager, technology consultant, CFO, COO and maybe even your own best salesperson.
You want that next level of success, but a person can wear only so many hats. You’re not afraid to work hard but you need a better system to manage your business, your agents, and a lead and listing funnel that keeps everyone busy.
Why Real Estate Franchising With Weichert?
It’s because you actually get something meaningful and impactful for your affiliation that can make a real difference in your business, your financial future,
even your quality of life.
You don’t have to take our word for it either. Listen to the feelings of some of our franchisees as they describe what being a part of the Weichert Family has meant to their business, and in some cases, their very survival in tough times.
Buying a Brand Name vs. Buying a Business Process
As you explore real estate franchise opportunities, consider what’s most important to you. Some of the biggest brands in the marketplace offer franchisees little more than the use of their logo to market your realty.
If you’re looking for a franchise that provides real value — with one of the most powerful entities in real estate today — Weichert® may be the perfect fit. Much more than an iconic brand, Weichert offers our real estate franchisees a comprehensive solution to the problems of growing your agency.
- SYSTEMS you can implement immediately, covering everything from recruiting, leads and transaction management to staff training and effective local real estate broker marketing plans.
- Best practices shown to BOOST SALES, such as impactful listing presentations, neighborhood marketing strategies, and weekly recruitment activities.
- Cutting-edge TECHNOLOGY to assist with everything from lead generation to marketing to cutting edge real estate CRM tools.
- Personalized support from our corporate LEADERSHIP TEAM down to your local business consultants and the hundreds of other Weichert franchisees in our system.
Unique in the real estate franchise arena, Weichert isn’t for everyone. It’s for driven brokerage owners looking for a different, better way of doing business.
Advanced Technology Equals Real Estate Lead Generation
In an internet world where competition for leads and listings is a constant challenge, connecting with buyers and sellers at the right time and in the right places is key. The use of online and traditional media sources has evolved and as a broker, you’ll need a leg up to understand and use these tactics effectively.
The Weichert Lead Generation System is a unique and powerful resource. We invest millions of dollars every year to bring advanced lead technology to Weichert offices across the country to help them grow their business.
Weichert invests in weichert.com, digital marketing and its unique call center to attract active customers and deliver those warm leads to agents who can close them. These leads come from all over the country and support franchisees in their local markets, wherever they are.
How Does the Weichert Real Estate Lead Generation System Work?
Weichert.com is at the heart of our national presence and our continued growth as a top 5 national real estate brokerage site. As such, we invest millions of dollars to advertise online, offline, and run our call center to ensure you and your agents will never miss a lead, and will close more of them.
- Weichert.com gets more than 40 million visitors nationally each year–more than 3 million visits every month–and thousands of online and phone inquiries every day from across the country.
- These calls and contacts come to our state-of-the-art call center and are pre-screened by specially trained representatives. Qualified leads are then routed to qualified agents within minutes.
- In an industry where nearly half of all inquiries go unanswered, the response time of the Weichert call center maximizes lead opportunities and is major point of differentiation in customer service.
- Our call center is open 7 days a week making sure you don’t miss any opportunity.
Other real estate franchise brands offer you little more than their name, but Weichert is a brand built by agents and brokers, for agents and brokers. We know what activities lead to success. An integral part to that success is a buyer/seller lead funnel and marketing engine that keeps your agents busy closing real estate transactions instead of chasing listings.
