Hattiesburg-based brokerage Realty Executives The Executive Team is opening a new office in Petal, Mississippi. Realty Executives The Executive Team (Petal) is the first franchise real estate firm in the City of Petal, with this expansion making Realty Executives the first franchise real estate firm in the local market to have two offices.

“Jim and his team at Realty Executives The Executive Team continue to be leaders within the Realty Executives franchise system, as well as in their local real estate community. The expansion into Petal is just one example of Jim’s commitment to his agents and the community they serve,” says Drew Rambo, Regional Developer for Realty Executives Midsouth Region.

“We have been doing business in Petal for over 20 years, and felt a physical presence there where we pay taxes and contribute to job creation in the area was warranted. We hope to provide a local, professional real estate presence as an option to Petal buyers and sellers to use for their real estate needs,” explains Jim Stroo, former President of the Hattiesburg Area Association of REALTORS® and Broker/Owner of the franchise.
