Envirian® LLC Announces Charlottesville, VA Franchise###
New Brokerage Model Combines Web Technology and New Approach to Agent’s Role
Reston, VA - April 7th, 2006
Envirian® LLC, a Reston, Va. technology-based real estate company welcomes Envirian® of Charlottesville to its growing list of franchises. The addition of Envirian® of Charlottesville joins those already in operation in Arizona, Maryland, Minnesota, 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 and 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's Charlottesville franchise now provides us with a greater foothold in the country’s southern real estate market,” he added.
According to Drake Van de Castle, broker/owner of Envirian® of Charlottesville, the new real estate brokerage model and operating system developed by Envirian® which integrates Web mapping and satellite imaging systems with the display of properties listed for sale on the multiple listing service, makes searching for a new home much more efficient for tech-savvy consumers.
“Envirian is the only national company to provide a continuous supply of Internet generated leads to its agents and offer a generous commission split. This Internet lead technology and Envirian’s lean corporate structure and commitment to keeping the operation simple is what attracted us this company,” Van de Castle said.
“Registered users of the new Envirian of Charlottesville site, www.charlottesville-fine-homes.com, can 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’” he added.
Envirian® of Charlottesville is located at 900 Gardens Blvd., Charlottesville, VA 22901. For more information, contact Drake Van de Castle at 434/975-6777.
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 1,150 or so possible territories available in the entire United States,” Wood added.
