ERA Real Estate continues to be an industry leader with presence in more than 35 countries and territories. It is now preparing its new venture into Spain, increasing its presence in Europe, with an ERA Master Franchise Agreement.
ERA Real Estate, a leading global franchise within the Realogy family of brands, announced today the signing of a Master Franchise Agreement for SPAIN with ACL Consultores, SL, which will mark the beginning of a new expansion project for ERA Real Estate in Spain in the coming months.
The ACL CONSULTORES group, led by Rafael Tarajano Carrillo and José Juan Muñoz de Campos, two entrepreneurs with a long history and experience in the real estate brokerage sector, has the support and backing of the REALOGY family for this new project, which will allow ERA Real Estate to continue to grow internationally and increase its presence in the European real estate market.
ACL CONSULTORES and its directors have extensive knowledge in the real estate field, having participated in various projects and business initiatives with another brand of the REALOGY group in the territory of the Canary Islands, all with great success and recognition.
The Spanish real estate market is one of the largest in Europe with a stock of more than 26 million homes. In 2021, 565,523 transactions took place and a significant increase is expected in 2022, with strong demand in the market from home buyers and investors. In addition, one of the characteristics of the Spanish real estate market is that it is not only desired by Spaniards but it is also highly demanded by the international market whereby purchases by foreigners added up to close to 20% of the total last year.
ERA Spain plans to start its operations in the Canary Islands market with the opening of its first agencies, through the first founding ERA franchisees in Spain and then plans to expand in other areas of the national territory in a next phase.
"The Spanish real estate industry is one of the engines of the economy at all levels. We will continue with the work we started years ago to give prestige to the real estate profession, to bring value to all operators, now hand in hand with one of the world leaders in the industry that enjoys great prestige in Europe. ERA Portugal and ERA France must be our benchmarks of success. We want to build more than a successful business, we want to generate around ERA Spain a new family of first-class real estate professionals" Rafa Tarajano, CEO and founding partner of ERA España.
José Juan Muñoz de Campos, Director and founding partner of ERA España, considers that: "the strength and confidence of the ERA brand, together with its capacity for innovation and adaptation to different markets and situations, are a guarantee to achieve what is undoubtedly one of the objectives of the ERA España project, to ensure that our franchisees and agents not only have a highly profitable business but also become the reference in services and quality that leads the real estate market".
François Gagnon, President of ERA Europe added: “We are very excited to welcome Rafa and José Juan to the ERA Europe Team, now present in 18 European countries with over 1,100 agencies and 6,000 members. Their commitment to customer satisfaction and to bringing innovative as well as proven tools to the Spanish real estate profession will take them to the top of the market. We know ERA Spain will be a great success. We look forward to working with them closely to help them achieve this.”
