ERA Real Estate Expands Presence In Kansas With Franchise Affiliation In Wichita

April 13, 2017

MADISON, N.J. (April 13, 2017) - ERA Real Estate, a global franchising leader, today announced a new affiliate in Kansas that will do business as ERA Great American Realty in the Wichita market.

Led by Brodrick and Mary Jayroe, the new affiliate is comprised of three offices and 72 independent sales associates. Last year the three offices were responsible for $142 million in sales volume.

“Brodrick Jayroe has leveraged his exceptional experience as a top-producing agent to motivate and develop his growing, high-producing team, which consistently out-performs the market,” said Sue Yannaccone, president and CEO of ERA Real Estate. “With a competitive position in the Wichita region, ERA Great American Realty is well-positioned to increase its service area and client base.”

“As an ERA® affiliate in this market, we will tap into the brand’s extensive suite of unique marketing tools, industry-leading technology and CRM platform, and proven recruiting program to distinguish ourselves from our competitors and expand our presence in our market and beyond,” said Brodrick Jayroe, majority owner of ERA Great American Realty. “From creating a compelling consumer experience to enhancing our value proposition to our current and prospective sales associates, we are excited to fuel growth for the future.”

“We have worked hard to establish a supportive, collaborative culture, which aligns so well with ERA’s defining core values, and we will leverage those inherent synergies to provide our affiliated sales associates and our clients with a next-generation experience that is second to none,” said vice president Mary Jayroe. “We pride ourselves on being a group of professionals who are always there for each other and we are excited to join a global brand that shares that approach.”

“I’m beyond excited for the future of this new franchise,” said Eric Locke, the firm's No. 1 producing sales associate and one of the region’s top team leaders. “We now have the opportunity to leverage ERA’s impressive resources to better serve customers, clients, teams and agents, moving us to the head of the class. Being part of ERA Real Estate is going to have a beneficial impact on everyone involved working both for and with our company.”

Known as the air capital of the world, Wichita’s economy is driven by a significant presence of aerospace companies including Boeing, Raytheon, Learjet and Cessna. Wichita is also a highly entrepreneurial community, known as the birthplace of a number of successful businesses including Pizza Hut, Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, and Rent-A-Center. The firm also serves a large number of military families stationed at the McConnel Air Force Base and relocation clients employed by Koch Industries.
