United Country Real Estate Named 2012 Military Friendly Franchise by G.I. Jobs Magazine
Share |

May 22, 2011 – (KANSAS CITY, Mo.) – United Country Real Estate has once again been ranked in
the top 10 percent of all franchises nationwide and named a 2012 Military Friendly Franchise® by G.I.
Jobs Magazine. United Country is among only 10 percent of franchise brands nationwide to receive this
honor. The 2012 Military Friendly Franchise® list, which represents the top 10 percent of the nation’s
franchises that are doing the most to recruit military veterans, is determined through exhaustive
research by the G.I. Jobs Military Friendly Franchise team. The research includes a
comprehensive survey of more than 4,000 franchises.

“The Military Friendly Franchises® list was created three years ago out of demand from military
veterans, many of whom want to start or own their own business but are unclear where to begin,”
said Sean Collins, director for G.I. Jobs. “Being selected as a Military Friendly Franchise places United
Country Real Estate in this elite group, and is testimony to United Country’s world class programs
and policies that support military veterans interested franchise opportunities”

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® is published each June in G.I. Jobs Magazine, and
on www.MilitaryFranchising.com,  a web tool that helps veterans decide which franchise to choose.
