Commerce Township, MI-based brokerage to operate as Real Living Metro Real Estate

IRVINE, CA (August 9, 2016) - Real Living Real Estate, one of the nation’s leading real estate franchisors and a member of the HSF Affiliates LLC family of real estate brokerage franchise networks, today announced that CM Management Services LLC has joined the network operating as Real Living Metro Real Estate.

Ann Byer, brokerage president, will operate the firm along with her daughter, Connie Valente, who will serve as brokerage CEO. Previously, the pair operated RE/MAX Royal in Commerce Township. Byer said Real Living Real Estate was a clear choice for the company, with a philosophy and vision closely aligned to her own. "When I first became a broker, I was driving around my area, saw a Real Living sign and had an immediate, gut feeling that this was the brand for us," she said. "Careful research confirmed our feelings - Real Living is the right fit for our brokerage, and we’ve found our home with this brand."

Real Living also provides the company with a brand not previously seen in the market. "We know agents are searching for another option other than what's already out there," she said. "Real Living is a fresh, new name in Commerce Township and brings with it all the marketing, technology and educational development opportunities to help our agents grow their businesses."

With their affiliation, Real Living Metro Real Estate agents gain access to a comprehensive and integrated suite of resources aimed at helping sales professionals and their clients successfully navigate the home buying and selling process. "We're excited to have the advantage of the innovative tools, technology and professional development offered by Real Living," said Valente.

"Our mission is to work together as a business team to support each other and celebrate our successes; as a member of the Real Living brokerage network, I know we'll be able to do just that."
