Envirian® LLC Announces Albuquerque, NM Franchise
Collaboration, Teamwork and Technology Draws Albuquerque Real Estate
Professionals to Envirian®
Reston, VA - May 16th, 2006
The owners of Envirian® of Albuquerque, NM,
attribute their attraction to joining the Envirian® family of franchises
to the company's business principles that promote collaboration and teamwork, as
well the new real estate brokerage model and operating system developed by the
Reston, VA technology-based real estate company. The Envirian® system
integrates Web mapping and satellite imaging systems with the display of properties
listed for sale on the multiple listing service. The addition of Envirian® of
Albuquerque joins franchises already in operation in Arizona, California, Maryland,
Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia and Washington, D.C.
"We are so excited about this system and this franchise because we know what
is going to happen," said Mike Freirich, who with his wife, Shelley, is
broker/owner of Envirian® of Albuquerque. "We were already a functioning
company and we had somewhat of a baby model of doing business through the Internet so we
knew what the Internet could do for us. We looked at many other companies
that were headed in the same direction but knew when we found Envirian that this
system has what we were looking for," he added.
"We also really liked Envirian's business principles that encourage
collaboration and teamwork among agents within and office. The whole
concept of quality of service rather than quantity made sense to us. It is the way we want to do
business," Freirich noted.
Envirian® of Albuquerque expects to open its doors to the public within the
next two weeks. According to Freirich, the office should open with10 agents,
but expects to begin recruiting more soon after.
"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 Albuquerque franchise now provides us with a
greater foothold in the country's south western real estate market," Wood
"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 has been attracting so
many folks to us," said Dr. Lee Konowe, CEO of Envirian® LLC.
Registered users of the new Envirian® of Albuquerque site,
http://www.albuquerque-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, Konowe added.

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, Konowe 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," he added.
