ERA Real Estate is built on the foundation of creating an infrastructure that empowers affiliated companies to exceed their growth and profitability goals. The brand has a storied history of cultivating a strong, collaborative culture rooted in innovation that helps our affiliates grow their businesses. The recent renewals of four ERA's long-tenured brokerages are representative of the strength of the ERA network as well as the tangible value the ERA brand affiliation can deliver to companies over the years – and decades,

Sherry Chris, President and CEO of ERA Real Estate.



ERA Reardon Realty, under the leadership of broker/owner Rick Reardon, has been affiliated with ERA since 2000. As a top 20 company in the global network, ERA Reardon is the largest ERA affiliate in Michigan with more than 100 agents in seven offices across the state. The company generated 1,227 transaction sides in 2019 and $230 million in sales volume. The company has grown in sides and volume by more than 1050% and 2200%, respectively, since 2001.  Reardon is a second-generation owner having taken over Gail Reardon Realty, which was founded in 1987 by his parents. His firm is recognized for its superior client service, agent-centric culture and commitment to supporting ERA's collaborative network.

ERA Reardon Realty's growth has also been fueled by the company's merger and acquisition strategy in collaboration with ERA. The most recent acquisition came in January when Reardon took an ownership stake in Midwest Properties ERA Powered in the Grand Rapids region, adding nearly 85 new agents and four new offices.

 

ERA is woven into the fabric of our company, and we would not want to be anywhere else. Through our 25 years with the ERA brand, we've successfully achieved the true value of a franchised partnership. Not only have we grown because of the guidance, resources and support we continually receive from ERA, but also from the incredible collaboration that exists. We firmly believe that the ERA network gives us a competitive advantage that is second to none,
