This will be the first time the realty brand has entered the Central American region.
Realty ONE Group has signed a master franchising rights in Costa Rica to an ambitious business owner, who will bring the real estate franchisor’s concept to Central America.
Sergio E. Gonzalez has more than two decades of real estate experience, and is a 30-year resident of Costa Rica. He’s looking to recruit real estate professionals throughout the country to open new offices, and use Costa Rica as a gateway for Realty ONE Group to expand into South America.
“Realty ONE Group is offering me an opportunity to help more real estate professionals and to be incredibly competitive with a business model and brand that make perfect sense,” said Gonzalez, who is an active board member and president of the Ethics Tribunal in Costa Rica.
Realty ONE Group was founded in 2005 and has a network of more than 16,000 real estate agents in over 300 offices throughout 45 U.S. states and Canada. It recently signed similar deals to open offices in Spain and Singapore.
“We’ve found another passionate and dynamic owner who believes, like we do, in opening doors to new, impactful, and more successful careers for real estate pros and creating wow experiences for buyers and sellers,” said Kuba Jewgieniew, CEO and founder of Realty ONE Group.
