“Since October of 2018, we have opened more than 20 franchises across the United States with more in development,” said Giuseppe ‘JP’ Piccinini, Founder/President of JP & Associates REALTORS®. “However, given the fact that this will be our first franchise in Texas where JPAR was born and made, I am beyond thrilled for what this opportunity has in store for the agents and communities in this bustling market.”
Chris Sears, industry acclaimed, long-time real estate professional has partnered with JP & Associates REALTORS® to open its first Texas franchise in the city of Houston.
“Having witnessed first-hand the success and growth of this company,” Sears stated, “I am both pleased and very excited to open this franchise.”
Mr. Sears’ resume is far from mediocre, which boasts notable titles and accolades, such as CEO and Team Leader of a $1.6 billion sales volume producing brokerage, Trainer, Business Coach and Consultant to 4 of the top 10 brokerages in the Houston MSA (with over a decade’s worth of experience), and most recently, President and COO of the 4th largest real estate brokerage in Houston, TX.
During his 22 years in the business, Chris has overseen 60,000+ real estate transactions in 7 states (and internationally), closed over $9.7 billion in real estate transactions since 2005, served two terms on the Texas Associates of Realtors Commercial Contracts Task Force, with over 16 years as a qualified, corporate sales trainer.
“The Houston market and its agents are in for a real treat,” said Frank Gay, CEO of JP & Associates REALTORS® Franchise Division. “Chris is an incredibly driven, lucrative individual that possesses the skills and ability to create successful Realtors. Without a doubt, there could not be a more suitable person to partner with in opening this new location.”
