PropertyGuys.com (Canada) Expands into the United States with Master Agreement
15 Nov 2018 - PropertyGuys.com, Canada's premier private sale marketing group, is pleased to announce that it has officially awarded a Master Franchise Licence for its proprietary real estate platform within the state of Florida. The company, now the largest private sale real estate franchise network in Canada, has made the U.S a strategic target to fuel its franchise growth over the coming years.
"We've been extremely strategic and diligent on expanding south of the border," explained Ken LeBlanc, President and CEO of PropertyGuys.com. "Not only have we waited for the right time to enter the US housing market, but we've also attracted quality partners who share our vision for disrupting real estate."
The agreement entered into with a private group of seasoned entrepreneurs gives the group the rights to develop PropertyGuys.com franchises throughout the state of Florida. The deal could represent well over 100 new locations within the state. The company is also planning to expand strategically into other states, which would bring its US franchise unit count well into the thousands in coming years.
"Florida is so attractive for us because it's a top destination for Canadian travelers and investors alike who recognize our brand - giving us a strong foundation as we expand throughout the State and beyond," continued LeBlanc.
"It's exciting and humbling to be awarded the first Master Franchise in the US," stated Patrick Belanger, who leads the investment group. "We're excited to be part of bringing this innovative and proven approach to the Florida market and look forward to replicating the success PropertyGuys.com has enjoyed in Canada across Florida."
The southern expansion comes at a time where tech-focused real estate plays like PropertyGuys.com are red-hot in both the public and private markets. Last year alone, more than $5 billion in VC-led capital entered into the US real estate market, driven by a movement to overhaul the way that buyers and sellers connect using technology.
"Real estate provides investors with access to a huge asset class - touching where every person lives, works and plays," said PropertyGuys.com Director of Partnerships, Walter Melanson. "PropertyGuys.com is at the forefront of this movement within Canada and sees the trend continuing."
