United Country Real Estate Honored as 2011
Military Friendly Franchise by G.I. Jobs Magazine
Share |

June 1, 2011 – (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – United Country Real Estate has been named one of the top military friendly franchises by G.I. Jobs in their recently released 2011 Military Friendly Franchise list. United Country is among only 7 percent of franchise brands nationwide to receive this honor. 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.

“The list was created out of demand for military veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin,” said Sean Collins, Senior Brand Manager for G.I. Jobs. “Military veterans can execute a plan, lead employees, and are trained to overcome adversity. Combine this background and work ethic with an established franchise system and you have greatly increased the
odds of the business succeeding.”

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. Veterans interested in opening a franchise
office or information on sales agent positions can learn more by calling 800-444-5044.

“The foundation of a successful real estate business hinges on honesty, discipline and a strong work
ethic; the very same qualities that come to mind when you think of our military professionals. The real estate profession has so much to offer veterans, including self-employment, flexible hours, work variety, unlimited income potential and the ability to be of service to others,” said Mike Duffy, president of
United Country Real Estate.

“Whether a veteran is looking for a franchise opportunity or a career in real estate sales, United Country has developed extensive training programs and a market-leading value proposition including enhanced marketing, cutting-edge technology, auction services and proprietary lead lists, to ensure agents and brokers have the skills and tools necessary to become leaders in their markets.”

The full list of Military Friendly Franchises will be published in the June 2011 issue of G.I. Jobs Magazine and on www.militaryfranchising.com.
