International Franchise Advisory Services Continues Global Expansion for U.S. Commercial Real Estate Brand
The international franchise sales firm facilitated the opening of the first Mexican Franchise location for Sperry Van Ness International Corporation (SVN), a commercial real estate brokerage franchisor
December 15, 2015: International Franchise Advisory Services (IFAS), a fully outsourced international franchise sales solution, announced today it has facilitated the launch of the first Mexican franchise location for Sperry Van Ness International Corporation (SVN), one of the most recognized commercial real estate services franchisors in North America. The Mexico City office location, operating under the name SVN Mexico City, will build on SVN’s successful business model of compensated cooperation as well as bring cutting-edge real estate platforms to Mexico’s industry professionals.
This is the third international market expansion IFAS has facilitated for SVN who expanded into Russia in October 2014 and Canada in October of this year. The commercial real estate franchisor plans to continue its rapid international expansion into targeted markets across the globe.
“The SVN platform is one-of-a-kind and offers such innovative advantages to franchise owners located in international markets,” says IFAS Managing Partner Albert Mendoza. “The global expansion is really taking speed and we’re already looking ahead to additional major markets we have in the pipeline.”
SVN franchisees harness the power of an international network of over 1,300 specialized real state consultants and partners from 190 offices serving over 500 markets in four countries. This robust network offers the relationships, expanded visibility and marketing dexterity to reach the widest possible investor audience and service a broader array of asset classes.
"The SVN platform offers originative business strategies that will strengthen profits for our stakeholders in the Mexican real estate market,” says Xavier Pumarejo, President & General Director of SVN México. “By partnering with SVN we subscribe to a culture built on collaboration, which allows us to provide win-win situations for both our clients and brokers. We’re expanding in México so we can offer this vision to the national market."
SVN Mexico City will encourage brokers to come together as franchisees, building value networks for the benefit of the client and the industry as a whole. “The traditional brokerage model is dysfunctional,” says SVN President and CEO Kevin Maggiacomo. “The way the system is designed encourages brokers to hold their listings closely and not share with the wider market, even though it’s well known that a larger market means more offers, which means higher prices and better deals for all stakeholders.”
