Real Estate News

In 1928, United Country changed the real estate marketing landscape by introducing the first real estate catalog. In the years since, we’ve found innumerable ways to communicate with brokers, agents, buyers and sellers and are constantly looking for new ways to hold conversations about real estate, auctions, lifestyle properties and more. Platforms like this allow people to communicate regardless of geography – the very thing our founder, Roscoe Chamberlain, had in mind when he printed that first catalog nearly a century ago.

Our vision for this blog is that it will allow us to share the things we think are most important with you – industry and market information, company announcements, videos, helpful home buying and selling hints and more – as well as get input from you about your real estate experiences.
