ERA Real Estate, a global franchising leader, today announced that a real estate leader in the Tri-State region serving Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C., formerly RE/Max 2000, has joined ERA Real Estate. Established in 1989, the firm will now operate as ERA Realty Group.

With the support of Zap®,ERA’s lead generation program, he hopes to further boost transactions and productivity with the ultimate goal of doubling the size of his team and adding new offices.

“The more tech you have, the more outreach you can have in your community. And the Zap program is the ticket for us,” Thomas added. “Combine that with ERA’s acquisition services and we’re really in a position to thrive.”
