Local Real Estate Firm Honoured by Vicki Prince

DFH Real

Estate, an institution in Victoria and Southern Vancouver Island for over 50 years, has been chosen to represent Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®. This Chicago-based global network is comprised of over 500 firms with 4,600 offices and 140,000 sales associates in over 30 countries. Leading Real Estate® affiliates are responsible for $235 billion in annual home sales – more than any other real estate organization. The firms that make up this global real estate network are the most powerful independent brokerage firms in the world. Only the best of the best are part of the select group whose name says it all. DFH was invited to join the global network after meeting specific standards of excellence that included being ranked among the top independent firms in their market for reputation, stability, tenure, quality, relocation capabilities and other factors. The strength of LeadingRE® is the quality of each individual brokerage firm. Companies don’t simply “pay for” a franchise brand name – they must earn the designation of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, year after year. This new relationship provides a global marketing reach for DFH Real Estate property listings, delivers expanded online exposure and brings international connections and the power of a global network. The affiliation has already proven to be a beneficial source for buyers. It also allows the firm to assist individuals purchasing or selling property in virtually any community worldwide and to service corporate relocation accounts through RELO Direct®, Leading RE’s corporate relocation management company. As an affiliate of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®, DFH has access to a wide range of brokerage services to further strengthen its marketing presence and offerings. In addition, company representatives have the opportunity to collaborate with other "best in class" firms from around the world for idea sharing, referrals and business development opportunities at conferences and online through the network’s private interactive community. "We are delighted that DFH Real Estate has joined Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®," commented President and CEO of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®

Pam O’Connor. "Their selection was based on the company’s outstanding reputation, as well as its demonstrated ability to deliver the same high quality service and reliability as our other affiliates. This level of service is the foundation of our network and is the basis for our longevity and success as one of the industry’s leading providers of real estate and relocation services." DFH has a powerful local brand in Victoria and Southern Vancouver Island and has long been recognized for its local expertise and ethical dealings. Despite some predictions of a challenging year ahead in the local real estate market, DFH is confident 2013 will be a successful year for its 120+ agents.
