The Real Brokerage Surpasses 10,000 Agents; To Launch Division Focused on Supporting Military Members and Veterans with the Addition of Sentry Residential
TORONTO & NEW YORK - April 4, 2023 -- The Real Brokerage Inc. (TSX: REAX) (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing publicly traded real estate brokerage, today announced Sentry Residential has merged its military-focused national brokerage into Real. Real will leverage the addition of Sentry along with Real's existing 500-plus military-focused agents to launch a Real Military Division, the first of several planned divisions of practice.
Sentry brings strong relationships with groups like the U.S. Department of Defense in supporting service personnel with housing and career needs. It has helped more than 3,000 military families and Veterans achieve their homeownership goals and provided a career path for hundreds of military-affiliated personnel across the 74 markets in 24 states in which it operates.
Sentry's addition pushed Real above the 10,000-agent mark and culminated the brokerage's strong recruiting gains in the first quarter of 2023.
"Surpassing 10,000 agents is a significant milestone," said Real Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tamir Poleg. "The fact that we've grown from just over 8,000 agents at year-end to more than 10,000 today, reinforces that our agent-centric model and the community we are building at Real is unlike any other in the industry. Successful groups like Sentry Residential see our growth and shared values as driving factors in their decision to align with Real."
Mike Chiesl, a top-producing San Diego real estate broker and decorated U.S. Marine Corps Veteran, and Daniel DeVille, the son of an Air Force Veteran and successful entrepreneur, launched Sentry in 2018 with a vision of becoming the first national brokerage firm dedicated to improving the lives of military families for generations through home ownership. Their goal was to take what Chiesl was doing locally to help military families and Veterans buy and sell homes and provide career opportunities for members of the military and expand it on a national scale. Today, Chiesl's local San Diego team ranks among the top 1% in the nation based on sales.
The Real Military Division will consist of Sentry's team, Real's 500-plus military-focused agents and any future agents seeking a brokerage that specializes in serving this community. The division is Real's first specialty practice group designed to align agents who specialize in a particular sector of real estate to collaborate and learn from one another.
"We are thrilled to welcome Mike, Dan and the Sentry team to Real. They share our commitment to bettering the lives of agents, especially those who have given so much to their country while helping our clients achieve their homeownership goals," Real President Sharran Srivatsaa said.
"We believe we have found a kindred spirit in Real. Tamir and Sharran share our passion for giving back to those who have sacrificed so much to serve their country," Chiesl said. "We are excited to bring our expertise to Real and make military real estate a core competency that's driven by a commitment to serve."
DeVille said, "Our mission to help military families has driven our business from Day One. As part of Real, we have a greater opportunity to scale and touch the lives of military families both through helping them realize their homeownership goals as well as providing life-changing career opportunities in real estate."
