The Franchise Advisory Council (FAC) represents Broker/Owners from across the Realty Executives International system. The group, which rotates membership periodically, works with management to exchange ideas and opportunities for growing Realty Executives at the grassroots and network levels.
“The FAC provides the perfect setting for franchisees to participate in the development of the Realty Executives brand, marketing, technology, tools, training, and concierge support,” says David Celaya, Vice President of Training and Product Development.
The FAC currently consists of nine members spread across North America and meets twice a year to help shape the development agenda for the network. Members are not only expected to participate in meetings, but to also reach out to their peers for ideas and input throughout the year. FAC member brokerages also participate in beta testing for technology and marketing initiatives in order to help fine-tune plans prior to releasing to the system-wide network.
