HomeSmart International Opens Franchise in Northwestern Indiana

HomeSmart Legacy to Offer 100% Commission Brokerage Model to Real Estate Agents

(Schererville, IN.) – HomeSmart International is excited to announce that its 100-percent commission brokerage model is expanding to northern Indiana with the opening of the HomeSmart Legacy franchise in Schererville, Indiana.

After nearly two decades of working as a real estate broker and six years as the owner of HomeSmart Realty Group of Illinois, HomeSmart Legacy owner Dan Bowden plans to better serve northwestern Indiana agents with a high-value, low-cost brokerage model. The brokerage will serve agents and consumers in Schererville, Merrillville, Crown Point and the entire GNIAR northern Indiana territory from IL to MI borders.

“HomeSmart has the best tools, technology and support,” Bowden said. “HomeSmart Legacy plans to grow fast and recruit 250 agents in five years with three offices across the northern part of the state. HomeSmart supports its brokers in giving consumers top-notch service and remaining competitive and relevant in this ever-changing market.”

HomeSmart Legacy is not your traditional brokerage. 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 16,600 real estate agents, across 171 offices in 28 states.

“We are thrilled to have Dan Bowden expand HomeSmart’s footprint in northwestern Indiana,” said Matt Widdows, HomeSmart International founder and chief executive officer. “He’s been a wonderful advocate for the HomeSmart International business model for years and knows it works.”
