Envirian LLC Announces New Offices for Greater Knoxville, TN Franchise
Envirian Greater Knoxville Fine Homes Opens New Doors with Grand Opening Gala
Reston, VA October 19, 2007 — Just in time for the college football season, Envirian Greater Knoxville Homes kicked open the doors to its new offices by hosting a Grand Opening featuring a live radio remote cast by one of the largest sports talk stations in the area, local guest celebrities and a drawing for two tickets to the University of Tennessee's (UT) homecoming game.
"Our new office location has incredible visibility on one of the main thoroughfares in Knoxville. This in itself helped to make our recent grand opening a huge success," said Brantley M. Ferrell, Broker for the Greater Knoxville Fine Homes Franchise.
According to Ferrell, the Greater Knoxville Fine Homes grand opening attracted a large turnout of people comprised of potential clients, networking partners and local celebrities. "The live remote by 99.1 FM really helped draw in the crowd as did hot dogs and hamburgers grilled on-site by one of our local exterminator firms," he said.
Envirian, a national real estate technology franchise brokerage offers a business model promoting collaboration and teamwork through its principles. In addition, the Envirian system integrates Web mapping and satellite imaging systems with the display of properties listed for sale on the multiple listing service. The company has franchises operating in numerous territories in Arizona, California, Washington, D.C., Maryland, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Washington. Franchises are scheduled to open in the near future in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Virginia Beach, VA.
"I believe that the basic premise of Envirian's lead system is a solid alternative to today's unpredictable market," Ferrell said. "In my nine years as an agent, I have never seen such an increase in market time for listings. The fact that it is a heavy buyer's market, and that the leads give us a pool of ready and able buyers, makes it easier to sustain and prosper during this downward swing in the real estate economy," he explained.
"We are starting to realize that it takes a little more time for the leads to transpire, but the writing is on the wall, so to speak. We believe it will be a "snowball" effect once we really collectively get going," he added.
Ferrell said the company currently has eight agents in place and expects another three to join in the coming few weeks. Expectations are for the office to carry as many as 20 agents within the first 6 to 8 months.
"We feel confident that our efforts have and will continue to lead to an incredible framework for Envirian to succeed in our marketplace," Ferrell said. "Our grand opening proved to be a wonderful day. Our agents meandered through the crowd shaking hands and kissing babies with a backdrop of live interviews, music, great food, some celebrity signing by one of the radio show's hosts. Of course, the drawing for tickets to UT's homecoming game just added to the fun," he noted.
Registered users of the Envirian Greater Knoxville Fine Homes site, http://www.knoxville-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.
