Wethersfield, Conn., January 31, 2012— Broker John Zubretsky, Jr., a high-profile Hartford area broker for 35 years, has announced his company’s affiliation with Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, Inc. (WREA). Co-owned by Ann Zubretsky, WEICHERT, REALTORS® – The Zubretsky Group has 85 agents at 449 Silas Deane Highway, Suite 2A, Wethersfield. John Zubretsky III is vice president of operations.
“Weichert really has its act together,” Zubretsky said, citing the organization’s commitment to brokers, agents and profitability. A longtime member of the franchise arena, he is aware of the synergy and benefits that are possible. “Weichert is run by Realtors,” he said. “Others are run by Wall Street.” From founder Jim Weichert to WREA President Martin J. Rueter and his management staff, the team is made up of people who are rooted in real estate.
“We are impressed with the way this company has earned its place in the market with leadership and a client-centric, family philosophy that is in sync with our own,” said Rueter. In 2011, the Wethersfield firm, as a Century 21 office, was identified as no. 1 in units sold of all Century 21 affiliates throughout Central New England. Its Executive Asset Group was ranked the no. 1 team in Connecticut and no. 5 nationally.
The realty was formed by Zubretsky and his father, John Zubretsky, Sr. When John Sr. passed away in 1999, they merged with eight franchised brokerages to form a top 10 nationwide system under the Access America name. “The offices split in March, and we went our separate ways,” Zubretsky said. “Our agents have been with us for a long time and are looking forward to being part of the Weichert family. The timing is good. It’s the right fit.”
WREA announced its first affiliate in January 2002 in Florida and has expanded to some 300 markets in 36 states. The parent company, Weichert, Realtors®, is one of the nation’s largest privately owned providers of real estate and home ownership services. One-stop shopping offers mortgage and insurance services, an award-winning Internet lead-generation platform and a multinational relocation company. Weichert is known for support to brokers and agents, providing in-person local training and online education, marketing and an agent recruitment system.
