Frequently Asked Questions
Our program is the most powerful listing and marketing program in the industry. The system offers proven effective marketing designed to offer broader exposure for local real estate listings. We open the door to new, expanded opportunities by marketing the “what” as well as the “where”. Other companies are limited to buyers who know where they want to move. We attract buyers beyond the “where” by more effectively advertising certain property types and aren’t restricted to a certain area. A national property type advertising program and buyer database not limited to location means significantly more sales opportunities.
The United Country Franchise also provides enhanced marketing, technology, training and support for our real estate professionals who sell the lifestyle they enjoy such as: small town and country living, ranching, farming, waterfront and mountain living, retirement, hunting, fishing, horses and the other amazing lifestyles across the country.
