Realty World Alliance will open a third area office next month, its broker said Wednesday.
Greg Fox, who owns the Realty World Wichita franchise with his wife, Tracy Cassidy of B-98 FM, said the new office will be at 620 N. Mulberry in Derby, across from city hall.
He said the office will open Jan. 2 with about four agents based there.
The 2,500-square-foot office has room for up to 20 agents, he said.
The Derby office is part of Fox’s long-term plan for Realty World Alliance to have a number of area branches.
“I’ve got east and west covered and the next logical place is south,” Fox said. “Ultimately I could have four, five, six of them. (But) I don’t know where I want to go next.”
He said he started making plans for a Derby office about a year and a half ago.
“An opportunity to solidify it came up about two weeks ago,” Fox said. “It’s been sudden, but it’s been great.”
The firm, which was founded in 1997 as Alliance Marketing Group and in 2004 became a Realty World franchise, has 48 agents and Wichita offices at 6100 E. Central and 8414 W. 13th.
Fox said it ranks seventh in Wichita in sales volume and eighth in the number of houses sold.
