United Country Real Estate named among nation’s top military friendly franchises
United Country Real Estate has announced that it was named one of the top military friendly franchises by G.I. Jobs in their 2010 Military Friendly Franchise list, released last month. According to the information provided, the list was compiled through extensive research including polls of thousands of franchises nationwide and precisely developed methodology and criteria, which revealed the top franchises offering the most incentive to America’s veterans. United Country is among the top 10 percent of all franchise systems nationwide to receive this honor, one of only two national real estate franchise brands featured on the list and the only real estate franchise offering discounts and incentives for veterans.
“United Country was founded in 1925 with the mission of helping people achieve the American dream of owning a piece of this nation’s land,” said Mike Duffy, president of United Country Real Estate. “Our veterans have ensured our freedom to live our dreams, and they fully deserve the freedom to transition into the best business opportunity to help them achieve theirs.”
United Country’s military veteran franchise program provides discounted franchise fees, start-up assistance and training programs. The program is available to veterans who are qualified real estate brokers, or those who have a spouse who is a qualified broker. Sales agent opportunities are available within the company’s franchise offices across the nation.
United Country Real Estate is, it says, the largest fully integrated franchise network of conventional and auction real estate professionals in the United States. Based in Kansas City, Mo., the company has been an innovator in real estate marketing since 1925. United Country has a network of nearly 650 offices across the U.S. and in Costa Rica. (kbp)
