“Our team has spent a decade under the radar doing the heavy lifting to refine our business model, deploy our proprietary cloud-based technology stack and build the operational infrastructure to become an Exceptionally High Growth Organization,” said Dan Duffy, CEO of United Real Estate Group. “We are now realizing the benefits of the efforts of our talented group of dedicated professionals.”

“We’ve built remarkable scalability and efficiency into United’s technology, support and operational platform,” he added. “As our growth accelerates, the financial and operational leverage is being realized and margins are expanding even as revenues accelerate. It is really exciting to see everyone’s diligent efforts paying off in so many ways to the benefit of our agents, brokers and their clients.”

“The scale of our business now allows us to double down on investments in innovation with a regular cadence and enhance our value proposition to our stakeholders,” Duffy said. “We are adding new resources, tools and core services to our already robust technology-enabled business services platform. All these efforts are made more efficient with greater effectiveness as a result of moving our technology stack to the cloud.” 

“Through United Real Estate’s unique, proprietary marketing and technology platform and our low agent fee, full-support business model, we have facilitated nearly a quarter-billion more of commission income to our affiliated agents than they would have received from traditional commission-split business models. This allows our agents to earn a better living while still being responsive to consumer demands for lower-cost transactions and industry-wide changes as they evolve. Empowering our network of brokers and agents to be nimble and responsive to consumers is a hallmark of our network and our penultimate goal.”
