The Weichert Story

Weichert. Built and led by real real estate people
“ People buy people before they buy products and services, and we believe
Weichert people are the very best.”

On a warm spring day in his very first year in real estate,
Jim Weichert was invited to meet a couple looking for someone to help
sell their home. He began by going all over their house, talking to them
about its best features. Then he invested extra time to appreciate
everything about their home’s exterior, even walking the property line.
He ended up in their basement, down on one knee in his best suit
reading their hot water heater. The couple liked him immediately and
trusted him; they appreciated his willingness to go the extra mile.
From then on, Jim worked hard to get to know every prospect he met
and to earn their trust. What’s more, he never stopped working to keep
his relationships up. That’s why so many of his customers came back
to him and even told their friends and family members, “I know a guy
in real estate you’re gonna love working with.”
Jim had discovered a great way to set himself apart from his competition.
But even he couldn’t have imagined that it would lead to a Weichert
family of companies that’s one of the nation’s leading providers of real
estate-related services. Yet, his determination to do everything possible
to help people move into the home of their dreams led exactly there.
Today, his philosophy and the resulting selling system that his
co-president and son, James, has organized as the Weichert Way,
continue to be the basis of our success.
