HomeSmart Creates Largest Real Estate Brokerage in AZ
HomeSmart Real Estate today announced its acquisition of Phoenix-based Dan Schwartz Realty, Inc. HomeSmart emerges from this acquisition with over 3,300 agents, making it the largest real estate brokerage in Arizona, and one of the largest real estate companies in the nation.
HomeSmart has been nationally recognized for introducing cutting edge technology to the real estate industry and for delivering superior customer service. Dan Schwartz Realty, one of the largest firms in Phoenix, brings more than 30 years of experience serving the Arizona real estate market.
HomeSmart and Dan Schwartz Realty share a commitment to providing clients with unparalleled quality of service by combining real estate expertise with innovative technology. These collaborative strengths will allow HomeSmart to offer agents and clients superior resources and support services.
“Arizona’s real estate market has a bright future, and we are well positioned to take full advantage of those opportunities,” said Matt Widdows, President and CEO of HomeSmart, “HomeSmart’s acquisition of Dan Schwartz Realty allows us to combine the best of two great companies, and the new economies of scale will allow us to provide an unmatched array of resources for our agents and customers.”
While other real estate companies continue to close offices, Widdows plans to continue opening new HomeSmart offices throughout the Valley in the coming months. Dan Schwartz Realty will close two offices in areas that already have a HomeSmart office, and the HomeSmart headquarters, currently located at 5611 N. 16th St. will temporarily relocate to the current Dan Schwartz Realty corporate offices at 1715 W. Northern. In the coming months, HomeSmart plans to identify new space in the Biltmore area to relocate its corporate headquarters permanently. Widdows will remain as the company’s president, and Dan Schwartz president Duane Fouts, who has distinguished himself as an honored industry leader and as a model of excellence for his agents to follow, will continue to serve as a managing broker. HomeSmart plans to release a series of innovative resources and tools for agents and customers throughout the year.
HomeSmart Real Estate entered the residential real estate market in January of 2000. Today, HomeSmart remains the fastest growing multi-office brokerage firm in the Phoenix Market.
HomeSmart invests in its agents by providing outstanding training, support, and unparalleled technological innovations.
Dan Schwartz Realty, Inc. has more than 30 years of experience serving thousands of families buying and selling Arizona real estate. Dan Schwartz Realty has been built on a foundation of integrity and quality, values that are shared by the founders of HomeSmart.
