George Slusser, head of the WAV Group's New Real Estate M&A Advisory Division

prnewswire | January 14, 2021

George Slusser, one of the land business' generally capable and notable valuation specialists, will join WAV Group to head its new Mergers and Acquisition Advisory Division, land's driving counseling and examination firm reported today. As the most up to date individual from the WAV group, Slusser brings over 35 years of involvement, remembering individual investment for more than 300 land business consolidations and acquisitions on both the procuring and selling side including many financier organization valuations. "George literally wrote the book on real estate M&As," WAV Group Managing Partner Victor Lund said. Slusser authored the industry best-selling book, Acquiring Profit, which created the foundation for today's modern M&A industry for U.S. real estate brokerages. "We can honestly say that no one will offer brokers better M&A advice than WAV Group with George on board." Lund clarified that at Cendant, Slusser helped led the significant acquisitions that made what is currently Realogy, the world's biggest land organization. Slusser most as of late was the previous COO and Chief Growth Officer of SVN International (earlier Sperry Van Ness), and past President and COO of Coldwell Banker Commercial Real Estate. He likewise was a top leader at GMAC Home Services, ERA Franchise Systems, and Merrill Lynch Realty. "No one has more experience helping real estate brokers navigate the challenges of preparing a succession plan and the right exit strategy than George," added Marilyn Wilson, WAV Group Managing Partner. "WAV Group already assists organizations to increase the value of their companies with the services we provide in technology, recruiting, retention and organizational excellence. Once an acquisition is complete, WAV Group supports brokerages with overhauling branding strategies, technology and data services creating operational and organizational efficiencies. WAV Group Communications is there to help the newly formed organization communicate the vision and strengths of the new entity to expand the brand strength as well as helping to retain agents and clients by minimizing disruptions. With our new M&A division, we now provide an end-to-end service to help our clients maximize the growth and profitability of their businesses­­­," she added. For Slusser, heading up the WAV Group's new M&A Advisory division allows him to "fill an unmet need for broker-owners." "There's an absence of firms offering brokers comprehensive M&A advice," Slusser said. "In the next three years, we expect the record consolidation we have already seen in the real estate brokerage industry to continue. As the ownership in our industry continues to age, the transfer to the next generation is underway. Broker-owners want - and need - guidance. We specialize in helping them understand the value of their company, create succession planning, explore partnership structures, help them raise capital, and most importantly, provide strategic support for each of these processes. And with M&As, both the selling side and acquiring side benefits from independent representation." At WAV Group, the M&A Advisory Division offers a far reaching scope of value and moderate administrations for customers, conveying "unparalleled skill." Slusser will head a group that has partaken in more than 600 acquisitions and consolidations with buy costs adding up to $1.1 billion. With a consolidated 55 years of M&A experience explicit to the land business, the Division can deal with a wide scope of arrangements, going from little consolidations or association purchase outs to the biggest, most complex industry exchanges. M&A Advisory administrations are accessible to land business organizations, both private and business, property the executives firms, innovation suppliers serving the land business, and start-up or beginning phase financier and specialist co-op organizations. "Our experience in being owner/operators, as well as senior executives with multiple top brands, allows us to bring a unique perspective unmatched by other advisory services. Our practical knowledge allows us not only to help properly value your firm, but we deeply understand that the most important assets of your organization are your reputation and people," Slusser said.
