IMMEDIATE RELEASE: WEICHERT, REALTORS® – TRADEMARK IS NEW NAME, NEW AFFILIATION FOR GROWING SHAVERTOWN AGENCY
Shavertown, Pa., October 1, 2012–Broker/Owner Elena Katarsky’s Weichert Realtors TradeMark, serving Luzerne, Lackawanna, Carbon, Wayne, Monroe and Pike Counties since 2007, is the most recent Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area agency to join the Weichert® franchise organization. WEICHERT, REALTORS® – Trademark, located at 1112 Memorial Highway in Shavertown, is “still independently owned and operated,” Katarsky said. “But now I have the additional support needed to provide the best service possible and to give my agents all that they need to succeed.”
An important part of Katarsky’s decision to become a member of Weichert Real Estate Affiliates was “the security of knowing about Jim Weichert’s history of growth into the owner of 170 offices with no corporate influence,” she said. The management team of the franchise division is likewise made up of people who have been in the field as realtors, brokers, office owners, managers and sales people. Katarsky herself has been self-employed since moving from Greece to the United States in 1986. The independent self-starter owned a Yellow Taxi Company and a restaurant in New York City before entering real estate in 2002.
Weichert Affiliates President Martin J. Rueter shared in the announcement saying, “Elena is the caliber of broker/owner that we seek to represent our good name. Her philosophy and professionalism combine to make her a most welcome addition to the Weichert family.”

Weichert Real Estate Affiliates, opened its first franchised office in 2002, grew to earn a “fastest growing franchise” tag by 2005, and is now serving some 300 markets from coast-to-coast.
