The new owner, Wendy Franco is a proven entrepreneur with over 26 years in banking and with the airline industry and also as a successful real estate professional. More importantly, she’s a perfect fit for Realty ONE Group as she cares deeply about giving back to the people and country that she and her family love.

“We continue to paint the globe gold the right way with ambitious partners like Wendy who will uphold our core values and COOLTURE which are the heart and soul of our dynamic organization,” said Kuba Jewgieniew ( ), CEO and Founder of Realty ONE Group. “While we have an abundant opportunity to grow fast, we stay focused on a disciplined expansion strategy that ensures the long-term success of our partners and our company.”

Franco first met Realty ONE Group at a National Association of REALTORS(R) convention but knew instantly that the company’s extraordinary brand and vision were perfect for Ecuador.

“I believe you should not live just to live, but live to transform lives knowing that anything is possible,” said Franco. “Our purpose is to use the gifts that life gives us, turning them into extraordinary opportunities to make dreams come true for others.”
