Whether you're buying or selling, choosing Prudential Real Estate Affiliates (PREA) might be prudent. PREA operates a franchise network of some 2,100 residential real estate brokerages across the US, Canada, and Mexico. The company, part of Prudential Financial's Real Estate and Relocation Services division, licenses the Prudential brand and name to commercial brokers, as well. Most of PREA's franchises are independently owned and operated. The company's network of affiliates reaches throughout all 50 US states and nine Canadian provinces.
PREA offers franchise opportunities to independent agents buying and selling both residential and commercial properties. The company offers its affiliates such services as training and marketing. In 2008 PREA launched a new program called DreamBuilder, which offers affiliates access to benefits such as group health insurance and retirement options.
