From day one of my real estate career, I had intentions to one day open my own brokerage.
Personally, I had no desire to follow the crowd by joining a franchise nor had I any intentions to own a franchise brokerage as their one-size-fits-all approach was not appealing to me.
When I was approached by United Country with the opportunity to start a franchise, I agreed to a meeting. I wasn’t losing anything by hearing what they had to offer and truthfully, I was hoping I could apply some of the concepts to a future solo brokerage.
After doing my due diligence post our initial meeting, I reevaluated my beliefs that UCRE is just like any other real estate brokerage. From the training and other UCRE offerings to the mere concept of their image in rural real estate and the support they offer agents and brokers, I was very impressed.
They focus on broker & agent empowerment that a startup brokerage could not possibly obtain on its own. From their SEO strategy, and experienced associates who are always willing to assist, to many other amenities.
I highly recommend to any aspiring associate brokers or existing brokerages with the thought of opening their own rural-based brokerage to consider a consultation with UCRE.
There are many franchises to consider, but for those agents and brokers with 25% or more rural property transactions, you won’t find a better option than UCRE.
