Despite the low inventory of the current real estate market, United Real Estate agents have continued to see tremendous success. With United's business model, agents are growing their businesses and reaching their financial goals.

Among United Real Estate's impressive success stories is Cody Pressley. With three months still left in 2018, the United Real Estate | Columbia agent has surpassed the 10 million dollar mark in sales with transactions still to come before year end.

"I joined United Real Estate | Columbia approximately two and a half years ago after working for another broker. When I met agent Latrice Armstrong, who had joined United a few months prior, she began to share the benefits and incentives provided to United agents," Pressley says. "Motivated by our discussion, I requested an interview with owner and operator, Winston Velpula. I immediately took a liking to him because of his business prowess and humility. After our conversation, I switched my license over in the matter of a few days."

The United Real Estate philosophy is to treat agents as if they're family and Pressley is one of the many people who recognize, appreciate and contribute to the unique culture of the company. He says, "Since my transition, I have been surrounded with incredible support including Preston Young, who I consider to be one of the most knowledgeable brokers in the real estate industry, Susie Mandel, our closing coordinator, Lesley Thompson, our receptionist, and our owners, Winston and Sylvia Velpula."

In an industry as vast and competitive as real estate, there are many brokerages available for agents. United Real Estate pours its time, energy and resources into creating the best possible opportunities for business owners to showcase their entrepreneurial spirits. "I love United Real Estate because it affords me the freedom to be myself and achieve goals that I personally create," says Pressley. "More so, I am not forced to operate in a system that limits my progress, like many other organizations."

United Real Estate stands out among competitors thanks to its unique, innovative business model which stems from a foundation made up of deep core values that go beyond the business world. "United not only values diversity within the company, but aligns with my personal beliefs of giving back and helping others," Pressley explains. "It has been so awesome to be part of a company that is rapidly expanding and establishing dominance in marketplaces throughout the United States."

Part of what sets United Real Estate apart from other real estate brands is its consideration for the well-being of its agents. United clears the path to success and provides agents with all of the tools they need in order to reach their goals. The motivational atmosphere United Real Estate creates enhances agents' confidence and pushes them to see their full potential. "I believe that within the next two years, I have the ability to be the best realtor in South Carolina as the result of my dedicated work and the company's philosophy," says Pressley. "Honestly, I'm very thankful and humbled that at the age of 26, I can be part of a movement that's helping catapult my business into a place I never imagined."
