HomeSmart Int’l opens in Sac

By From page HS21 | June 28, 2013

PHOENIX — Real estate firm HomeSmart International continues its nationwide growth with the opening of one of its newest franchises in Sacramento. Based in Phoenix, HomeSmart began franchising two years ago, offering one of the most attractive business models in the real estate industry.

HomeSmart CEO and President Chuck Lemire believes this new partnership will continue the international growth of HomeSmart and provide great brokerage services through the franchise owners leadership and experience in northern California. Sacramento is the nation’s 35 largest city and HomeSmart is the number one independent brokerage firm in the Southwest.

Since opening in January 2000, HomeSmart has had tremendous success by growing to over 7,500 agents nationwide. HomeSmart provides its franchise partners with specific systems and technology that create efficiency in operations and keep costs down while allowing exponential growth.

Sacramento franchise owner Isom Coleman brings seven years of real estate experience and more than 19 years of management experience to HomeSmart. Coleman brings a team of 10 agents and the franchise will operate as HomeSmart ICARE Realty.

“With the systems and technologies we offer to our business partners, Isom will be able to provide high quality service at an efficient pace throughout Sacramento, and potentially beyond its borders,” said Lemire. “We are proud to say ‘Welcome Home!’ to Isom and his partners.”

HomeSmart emphasizes the importance of being aware of client needs and exceeding their expectations, which in turn builds strong relationships with the buyers and sellers in every market. HomeSmart’s proprietary software also positions its franchise partners ahead of the curve. Created by Founder and Chairman Matt Widdows and his development team, the reputable systems are proven to save business owners huge costs attributed to web hosting, lead generation and back office systems. This allows the franchise owners to provide the technology to their agents for free while allowing the agents to keep 100 percent of their commissions. Other advantages to HomeSmart’s franchise program include a virtual receptionist, generous fee structure, and a full suite of branding and marketing products.

HomeSmart continues to open new offices and add jobs across the United States, with offices throughout 10 states and international operations in Shanghai, China. The company added approximately 3,500 new jobs in 2012, and its goal is to continue to grow nationally and internationally in 2013.
