Envirian LLC Announces Central Oregon Franchise
Climate Draws Entrepreneur To Oregon and Envirian Franchise Opportunity
Reston, VA – Nov. 1, 2006 — Central Oregon’s mild climate, affordable cost of living and growing population of incoming retirees provides an attractive marketplace to open Envirian of Central Oregon, according to the firm’s broker/owner Scott Mueller.
“This area of Oregon ranks high in terms of the quality of life it offers,” said Mueller, who has been involved in the real estate industry for more than 17 years. “My wife and I moved here because of the climate. Here there are 300 days of sunny weather and an annual rainfall of about 8 inches. I chose to invest in an Envirian franchise because of the priority the firm places on quality of life for owners and their agents,” he explained.
“The Envirian model, which promotes collaboration and teamwork through its principles, and offers a high-tech operating system designed to deliver immediate leads via the Internet to real estate professionals was attractive to me and I was sold on it,” he added.
Mueller, whose real estate experience includes residential sales, international sales and resort property sales, said he had explored other franchise offerings by some of the larger real estate companies but felt they would be too removed. “Envirian offers one of the best technology-based lead generation systems in the industry. That factor, along with the genuine sense of family and camaraderie offered was unmatched by any other firm I had looked at,” Mueller added.
Envirian of Central Oregon joins franchises already in operation in Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New Mexico, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
“We’re very excited to welcome our newest Envirian franchisee to the family,” said G. Dean Wood, President/CFO Envirian LLC. “Clearly the Envirian model, which marries technological innovation with a renewed focus on teamwork and customer satisfaction, is striking a chord among residential real estate professionals.”
“The opening of Envirian of Central Oregon increases our foothold in the country’s pacific northwest real estate market. Scott Mueller understands the power of technology and the Internet and we are very fortunate to have him at the helm of this franchise,” the company’s Chief Administrative Officer Francisco Barragan, added.
According to Barragan, Envirian is the only national company to provide a continuous supply of Internet generated leads to its agents and offer a generous commission split. He attributes the firm’s Internet lead technology, its lean corporate structure and its commitment to keep the real estate transaction simple to the increasing number of franchises opening nationwide.
Registered users of the new Envirian of Central Oregon site, http://www.central-oregon-fine-homes.com, will be able to view listed properties on the map that are color coded by price, making the old real estate adage of finding the least expensive property in the more expensive locations easier. Envirian of Central Oregon is located at 1250 N.E. 3rd Street Bend OR 97701. For more information about Envirian of Central Oregon, contact Scott Mueller at 541/312-4188.
As technology continues to impact the traditional real estate business model, Envirian looks poised to set a new standard for both the consumer and the real estate agent, Wood said.
“The rapid growth of the franchise and multiple territory ownership by most franchisees will likely lead to a rapid decline in available territories. As Envirian’s model provides exclusive protected territories there is only some 1,000 or so possible territories available in the entire United States,” he added.
