Today I’m very excited to announce that Madden Real Estate has merged with the Dar Walden Team out of Anchorage. What does this merger mean?
To put it into perspective, in 2016 our two teams served a combined 778 clients for almost $200 million worth of sales production. This also means our team will join the Keller Williams network. Keller Williams is the world’s largest real estate franchise, with more than 150,000 agents worldwide in 800 different offices. This expansive network was something that I saw great value in, and there were several reasons we decided to join it.
First, it gives us true statewide coverage for our clients. We are now the only team who has ever served all of Alaska, and we can help any client who has to move all the way across the state. This capability is something I’ve been particularly excited about, and I’m glad we’ve finally been able to realize it.
This merger also gives us more horsepower for our proven marketing system. Now that we’re connected to 150,000 other agents, we can use this new referral network to create even more buyer demand for our clients’ properties. Also, if you’re a seller and you have to leave the state, we’ll be able to pair you with a top-notch agent in whatever market you’re moving into.
By the way, Dar Walden is also endorsed by Barbara Corcoran. I can’t wait to have some fun shooting some TV commercials with her!
Last but not least, our teams share the same core values. I’ve known Dar and Ed for a long time, and I can’t think of two better people to be in business with. It’s one thing to be in business with someone; it’s another thing to share the same business ethos with them. That was very important to me in continuing the Madden Real Estate legacy.
I will still serve as the CEO of Madden Real Estate for the foreseeable future, so you can rest assured that you will still receive the same extraordinary service from us that you’ve grown accustomed to. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I’d be glad to help.
