Leading independent Firm Leverages Unique ERA Powered® Model to Fuel Growth

The company, headquartered in St. Charles, IL., serves the Greater Chicago area and will now be known as Results Realty ERA Powered.
The ERA Powered® branding model allows a company that has invested in building local brand equity to affiliate with the ERA® brand and benefit from the entirety of the brand’s platform in marketing, training and operations.
Judy Cox, a 20-year real estate veteran who established Results Realty in 2013, has operated as both an independent brokerage and a franchised operation over the course of her career. Her company currently has more than 40 agents.
The Greater Chicago metropolitan area is noted for its array of well-developed small-to mid- sized towns with vibrant downtowns and lively cultural and lifestyle offerings – all within in close communing distance to the city of Chicago. The firm caters to clients across a wide range of price points and housing needs, serving many first-time buyers, as well as families looking for more space.

“Judy has invested 20 years in building her strong local brand which is predicated on exemplary service and deep knowledge of the communities she serves. She recognized a unique opportunity with the ERA Powered model to realize her growth goals as we will enhance the invaluable brand cache she has established over two decades. From increasing agent productivity and recruiting new members to the team, to opening more offices and developing new lines of business, Judy is approaching growth from multiple perspectives. Her measured and astute will undoubtedly serve to increase ERA’s presence in the third largest metro region in the country and we are excited for what’s to come from our new affiliate in Chicagoland.”
–Sherry Chris, President and CEO of ERA Real Estate
“ERA’s many formalized programs and platforms combined with sophisticated technology and tools will provide an incredible steppingstone for our agents to enhance their performance, compete at a higher level and earn more market share. While I have enjoyed supporting my agents in their professional development, I knew we needed a new level of support to bring our company to the next level. We’ve built a close-knit family over the last seven years and being able to retain our identity as a firm is a critical element for growing together as an ERA Powered® company.”
