October 25, 2014 — WEICHERT, REALTORS® – New Colony will open a new branch in Mount Airy, Md., this December.
“This is an incredible expansion opportunity for us,” says Michael McKenna, senior vice president and chief operating officer of WEICHERT, REALTORS® – New Colony.
“Mount Airy is a developing area with superb schools and attractive amenities. You have mountain views and open fields, yet still a direct commute to Baltimore and D.C. There’s a demand for a place like that. I think that Mount Airy is great fit for our company.”
Realtor® Denise Davis will be the branch manager of the new location. She is a long-time resident of Mt. Airy, Md., and has been a Realtor® since 2010.
“With a branch right on Main Street, we can better serve a region that our agents have already been serving,” Davis says. “We’ll be closer to our Carroll County and Frederick County clients and more immediately accessible to them. Also, we can offer other Weichert agents a home-base when they are working outside of their region. We expect to work closely with agents whose Montgomery County and Howard County clients are looking to move to this area.”
WEICHERT, REALTORS® – New Colony will continue to operate its Columbia branch at 6925 Oakland Mills Road.
Vice president and Columbia branch manager Erin Phelps says about the expansion, “In my nine years of working with Michael McKenna and David Vane, they’ve always been able to spot an opportunity and grab a hold of it. This is one of those moments for our company.”
“Denise is knowledgeable and invested in the Mount Airy community,” Phelps says. “Her excitement for the real estate business and the Weichert system made her the obvious choice to help us expand into this new marketplace.”
WEICHERT, REALTORS® – New Colony will host a grand opening celebration at the new branch in spring 2015.
