HomeSmart Realty Partners, one of HomeSmart International’s franchises throughout North America, is pleased to announce the purchase of franchise rights in Grand Junction, Colorado.
Led by broker/owner Brian Marincic, HomeSmart Realty Partners’ office will serve agents and consumers throughout the Western Slope. Marincic, who joined HomeSmart in September 2017 as the HomeSmart CH4 franchise broker/owner in Wyoming, will operate the home office for western Colorado in Grand Junction.
“Brian has the experience of building a dynamic brokerage and culture for agents in Wyoming,” said Bryan Brooks, HomeSmart International senior vice president of franchise sales. “His expertise in running offices in similar mountain communities, makes him the perfect person to operate in Grand Junction.”
HomeSmart International prides itself on being a brokerage model that supports its agents, brokers and franchise owners and is committed to helping its franchises grow. As an entrepreneur, Marincic planned for growth in the rural West and expansion to the Western Slope aligned perfectly with that vision.
“I understand these markets,” said Marincic. “I’m a small town guy, and along with HomeSmart, I’m always excited to expand what is a truly innovative and forward thinking business model to areas that probably aren’t on the top of most folks’ lists.”
The franchisor believes having an owner like Marincic will accelerate the growth of the HomeSmart brand and the individual business of each of the HomeSmart Realty Partners agents.
“Since joining HomeSmart, Brian very quickly saw value in our vision and model and knew he wanted to play a larger role beyond the presence he created in Wyoming,” said Wendy Forsythe, COO of HomeSmart International. “Seeing an existing franchisee further invest in the brand, tells us there is tremendous enthusiasm within the network for what HomeSmart is doing for the real estate industry.”
