ERA Awarded to Brokerage for Demonstrating Excellence and Integrity Across the Real Estate Network

February 27, 2024 // Franchising.com // MADISON, N.J. - ERA® Real Estate has named ERA Brokers Consolidated in Saint George, Utah, ERA Colonial Real Estate in Harker Heights, Texas and ERA Donahoe Realty in Temecula, California as the winners of its 2023 ERA® Gene Francis Memorial Award for Top All-Around Company.

The award, named after ERA Real Estate co-founder Gene Francis, is the highest honor given to an ERA® affiliated company and reflects the qualities most respected throughout the global ERA system and the real estate industry. Known for his forward-thinking business acumen and philanthropic spirit, Francis established a defining culture of service to which all ERA-affiliated companies aspire. Factored into the award selection are high customer satisfaction ratings, strong brand engagement and use of the ERA brand resources and company growth.

The firm was founded in 1982 by the late Mark Walter. Serving their clients and communities for over 40 years, ERA Brokers Consolidated, ERA Colonial Real Estate and ERA Donahoe Realty have grown to be a powerhouse at ERA Real Estate. Additionally, over the years, ERA Brokers Consolidated has launched a proprietary technology platform called ARTI®, introduced a real estate education platform and published monthly market research for more than a decade.

Second-generation leaders Neil, Jon and Matt Walter are committed to the continued growth and expansion of the company, as well as differentiating themselves in their markets. In 2022, they acquired ERA Colonial Real Estate and ERA Donahoe Realty. Under their leadership, the firm has achieved Top Affiliate status over the years, which is given to the top 20 ERA affiliated companies in units and volume. ERA Brokers Consolidated won the ERA Gene Francis Memorial Award for Top All-Around Company in 2017, a multi-time finalist for the same award, a member of the ERA Hall of Fame Class of 2015 and landed in the top 1% for companies in units and volume within the ERA Franchise System for 2023.

“The winner of the ERA Gene Francis Memorial Award for Top All-Around Company personifies the model ERA company and ERA Brokers Consolidated, ERA Colonial Real Estate and ERA Donahoe Realty are no exceptions,” said Alex Vidal, president of ERA Real Estate. “We are thankful to these companies and their leadership for ensuring that the steadfast spirit of Gene Francis remains at the forefront of the way these companies work with the communities they service.”

“It is an honor to receive the Gene Francis Memorial Award on behalf of all of the real estate professionals on our team. Our staff, property managers, leadership, and real estate agents work every day to lead the industry in client service by being good, being kind, and doing good,” said Neil Walter, CEO of ERA Brokers Consolidated, ERA Colonial Real Estate and ERA Donahoe Realty.
