Realty Executives Premier Continues Legacy with New Ownership of Janesville Brokerage

Realty Executives of Janesville, WI, is excited to announce the grand opening of Realty Executives Premier under new Broker/Owner Sarah McLean.

Previously Realty Executives Janesville, the Wisconsin brokerage has established itself as a respected family-run business since its opening in 1999. Founded by Millie Fournais, the brokerage has since been passed down to her son and Broker, Erik Fournais, and now their former Executive and teammate, Sarah McLean. 

McLean joined the Realty Executives team and quickly grew her career and expertise within the business. When offered the opportunity to take the next step and become a brokerage owner, McLean was thrilled to be able to keep the team together and continue the success the brokerage has seen for over 20 years.

“Becoming a Broker/Owner has been an amazing opportunity.  I am excited to continue the success of Realty Executives in the years to come.” McLean said.

This transition from high-producing agent to Broker/Owner is an incredible example of the opportunities available to Realty Executives agents looking to challenge themselves and step into the next level of their career. The new ownership also provides relief for the Fournais family, as Erik and his extended family can be assured their mother’s business and legacy will live on through not only a powerful businesswoman, but a fellow Executive and friend.

“It’s extremely exciting to watch our agents, whom we call Executives, develop their careers and eventually step into different forms of ownership- from individual businesses to teams to franchises.” Alysia Heun, Vice President of Realty Executives International, said. “Our Broker/Owners are true entrepreneurs and natural leaders, and Sarah undoubtedly embodies both of those qualities. We are grateful for the hard work and dedication of the Fournais family, who have built a legacy in Janesville, and equally excited to see Realty Executives Premier begin this new chapter in business.”
