In 2019, Shawn Phelps (Broker/Owner) of State Line Properties in Smith Center, Kansas understood that continuing to operate as an independent real estate brokerage would become harder to sustain in the ever-changing technology-driven real estate industry. Technology alone won't replace the real estate agent, but real estate agents powered by a company dedicated to investing in technology will. The goal was to align his brokerage with a nationally known real estate brand that would consistently offer his agents cutting-edge technology, marketing, training and support to better serve their customers.
After researching multiple large real estate franchise companies, it led him to Realty ONE Group. Realty ONE Group easily showed they offered unmatched and innovative solutions that would allow his brokerage to not only survive but thrive. In February of 2020, after seven memorable years and 226 real estate transactions, locally-owned State Line Properties became the locally owned Realty ONE Group Solitude. Realty ONE Group Solitude is excited to be a franchisee of the Realty ONE Group family.
Realty ONE Group has gained national attention as an industry disruptor by radically changing the face of the real estate industry with its unique 100 % commission model, culture, technology, and superior support for its real estate professionals.
