“There is new power in the United Country system and people are noticing and joining United Country like I have not seen in my 28 years,” said Richard Thompson, National Executive Vice-President of Sales for UCRE. “Everything we’ve all been working so hard over the last few years to do has come together and that’s why so many talented brokers, auctioneers and agents are seeking us out and joining our team. When this happens and we welcome more franchises, we add more sales, which increases advertising, promotion, marketing and other services to drive more brand recognition and buyer leads to all of our affiliates. We also have a bigger network to share information and referrals with. This adds value to every affiliates local brand and office.”


UCRE now also provides a retirement transition program, which facilitates the seamless transfer of retiring office owners who have been with UCRE for decades to new owners. In addition to bringing on new offices, the UCRE business development team was able to work directly with these retiring office owners to successfully sell and transition their businesses to new ownership in order to keep finances flowing smoothly and allow the previous owner to enjoy retirement. The new program is a free service to all UCRE affiliates.


UCRE’s growth comes at the heels of many successful advances and launches in technology, including 38 specialty property group websites launches as well new and advanced agent specific websites that boost SEO and branding opportunities for individual agents in the UCRE network.
