DALLAS and MADISON, N.J., Sept. 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Century 21 Real Estate LLC, franchisor of the iconic CENTURY 21® brand, announced today that Nathan Grace Real Estate has joined the CENTURY 21 franchise system by entering into a partnership with Dallas-based CENTURY 21 Judge Fite Company. Nathan Grace, a previously unaffiliated brokerage with 160 sales professionals and five offices in and around Dallas and Collin counties in Texas, will now operate as CENTURY 21 Nathan Grace Fine Homes & Estates.
"Our legacy is deep-rooted in this industry," said Nick Bailey, president and chief executive officer, Century 21 Real Estate LLC. "However, it is the innovative spirit, agent focus and hustle from our sales professionals, and the authentic interaction we openly encourage with home buyers and sellers, that is the cultural foundation of today's iconic C21® brand and the driving force that helps affiliates like Judge Fite grow."
"The value add for real estate consumers in the Dallas-Fort Worth market is that we share a similar culture and the values of a truly service-centric organization," said Jim Fite, chief executive officer of CENTURY 21 Judge Fite Company. "We joined forces with Nathan Grace knowing that this partnership would provide enhanced services to the people we serve and lead to the continued success of both brokerages and their agents."
Within the CENTURY 21 System, CENTURY 21 Judge Fite Company is ranked the No. 1 brokerage by sales production and units closed in the DFW area, and in Texas, and is the fourth-ranked C21® company in the United States. Both companies have earned honors from the Dallas Business Journal as "Best Places to Work" and Dallas Morning News as "Top 100 Places to Work."
"The partnership allows the Nathan Grace team the capability of serving their clients with a company that offers national and international recognition, relocation services, and property management and leasing," explained Jan Fite Miller, executive vice president of CENTURY 21 Judge Fite Company. "The combination of both companies' leadership builds a powerhouse of experience that is second to none in the marketplace."
Led by seasoned management teams, the combined entity of CENTURY 21 Judge Fite Company and CENTURY 21 Nathan Grace Fine Homes & Estates now consists of approximately 1,000 sales associates in 25 offices covering the DFW Metroplex or 11,000 square miles. The Client Service Center for CENTURY 21 Judge Fite Company and CENTURY 21 Nathan Grace Fine Homes & Estates is located at 400 S. Zang Blvd., Ste. 310, Dallas, Texas.
"Consumers and industry professionals looking for a new place to call home should feel confident – like me – that Jim, Jan and the leadership teams at both brokerages will work well together to deliver the best personalized experience possible," added Bailey. "This is terrific news for us, but even better news for home buyers and sellers throughout Texas."
