WOBURN, MA--(Marketwire - Nov 16, 2011) - EXIT Realty Corp. International recently announced that OwnAmerica, a national network of trained and certified Residential Investment Specialists, has joined its elite Approved Supplier program. The affiliation allows EXIT Realty brokerages and agents to provide educational programs and analysis tools to real estate investors during one of the biggest real estate investment booms in history. EXIT Realty is the first national real estate franchise organization to forge such an alliance.

Using the Investor Center on participating brokerage and agent websites, real estate investors can learn how to best capitalize on the challenging housing market by learning how to choose markets on the upswing, find properties at under-market values, and build a real estate portfolio for long term wealth creation. The Investor Center guides new real estate investors down the right path and streamlines the process for more seasoned investors.

"The residential investor is the most motivated and active segment of the market today," explains Amy Youngren, EXIT Realty's Manager of Ancillary Services. "We teamed up with OwnAmerica because we see a clear need to represent the investment value of the homes in the neighborhoods we serve. The Investor Center provides the resources to help today's investors profit by building a real estate portfolio for the long haul."

OwnAmerica and the Investor Center were created by Greg Rand, a twenty-year real estate industry veteran and author of the book Crash Boom! to prevent investors from getting burned.

"We've seen too many people giving bad advice about 'getting rich quick' in real estate. In truth, real estate is a long term wealth building asset. It works when you do it right. We want to show our clients how to do it right," says Rand, CEO of OwnAmerica and host of WABC Radio's Rand on Real Estate.

"We are in an incredible growth phase at EXIT Realty and we see the next ten years as an opportunity to build our international footprint by being the smartest real estate company in the hemisphere," said Tami Bonnell, President of the U.S. Organization for EXIT Realty, "The way we will accomplish this is by training and certifying our existing organization of brokerages in every State on how to represent housing as an asset class, using it to recruit more career professionals to our team, and dominate the investor market in the process. Then we will educate hundreds of thousands of consumers on the Art of Real Estate Investing."
