United Real Estate continues to grow as it welcomes Legé Properties into its Houston office. The move brings the branch to 100 agents and is the latest sign of solid growth for the company.
United Real Estate operates under its “Freedom Model,” a system that combines support tools and a 100-percent commission program. Laura Caffey, co-owner of Legé Properties along with Clint Legé, says that she looks forward to operating under the agent-friendly system and is extremely optimistic for the future.
“I am very excited to join the United Real Estate team and really look forward to much success in the upcoming years,” Caffey said. “This partnership will be a force to be reckoned with in the Houston real estate market.”
Caffey also noted that the team at Legé Properties had been limited, especially in terms of technology. She said that the tools United has to offer would mean more opportunities for her agents to grow their business.
Legé Properties Merges with United Real Estate’s Houston Office
Dianne Moore, managing broker at United’s Houston office, is also very pleased with the merger as well as what it means for the company.
“We are growing by leaps and bounds,” she said. “With more and more agents recognizing the extreme value we provide them for such a small dollar, they are able to expand upon that which they can provide to their own customers and clients – everyone wins.”
United has already experienced considerable success in the Lone Star State, with their Dallas office being the fastest growing real estate company in northern Texas last year. The company has also experienced recruitment gains in Washington, D.C., Chicago and Philadelphia.
