HomeSmart International Opens Bilingual Franchise in Brooklyn

HomeSmart Interstate Realty Brings 100-Percent Commission Model to New York City Borough

(BROOKLYN, NY) – HomeSmart International announced the expansion of its 100-percent commission brokerage model with the opening of HomeSmart Interstate Realty in Brooklyn, New York.

“HomeSmart is the fastest-growing franchise in the real estate industry,” said HomeSmart Interstate Realty broker and owner Irina Martin. “It’s breaking the old approach by offering a low-fee structure and very high service level technology to real estate agents. Currently, there are no brokerages in Brooklyn that offer this model. I’m thrilled to be part of this movement and bring this opportunity to as many real estate agents in Brooklyn as possible.”

With seven years in the residential real estate industry and decades of experience as a top-producing sales executive, Martin is excited to offer services to the English and Russian speaking community in Brooklyn.

“Knowledge is power and all of my SmartAgents will have access to the information and resources they need,” Martin said. “The best thing about HomeSmart technology is that all of the tools are offered in one place. One platform with a single login allows agents to have full control of their transactions, generate reports, market themselves and get updates, all with one click.”

Agents keep 100 percent of their commission while having access to free training, an arsenal of marketing tools, proprietary transaction management software and expert broker support. The company is part of the nationally-ranked HomeSmart International brand that currently has more than 17,000 real estate agents, across 166 offices in 28 states.

“We are thrilled to have Irina expand HomeSmart’s 100-percent commission model in New York,” said Matt Widdows, HomeSmart International founder and chief executive officer. “Martin is passionate about the Brooklyn community and is motivated to make a difference to its residents and real estate agents who serve them.”

In addition to leading the new HomeSmart franchise, Martin is a licensed loan officer at Interstate Home Loan Center where she has closed more than 600 purchase and refinance transactions. Martin plans to grow HomeSmart Interstate Realty to 50 agents within the first year, eventually expanding to the rest of Brooklyn and Staten Island area.
