From the start, Restaino &amp; Associates has been a company that challenged the status quo, recognized the need to add ancillary businesses to their portfolio, and who, through hard work and determination, has developed their own successful relocation business. We couldn't be happier to welcome Restaino &amp; Associates, a company whose entrepreneurial spirit so closely aligns with our own.&quot;<br/>-<b><span class="xn-person">Sherry Chris</span>, CEO of ERA Real Estate</b></p> <p>&quot;We've been courted by many franchisors over the years. We'd listen politely, but we ultimately declined each offer because they all required us to swallow our brand, our identity, and essentially give up our autonomy. This all changed when I received an interesting call from ERA about the <i>ERA Powered</i> concept, and realized it was the great solution we'd been looking for all along: a franchise that gives us the tools, service and support that we need, while allowing us to remain who we are.&quot;<br/>-<b><span class="xn-person">Ron Restaino</span>, founder and owner of Restaino &amp; Associates</b></p> <p><b>About ERA Real Estate<u><br/></u></b>At <u><a target="_blank" href="https://c212.net/c/link/?t=0&amp;l=en&amp;o=2617429-1&amp;h=523246540&amp;u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.era.com%2F&amp;a=ERA+Real+Estate" rel="nofollow">ERA Real Estate</a></u>, we don't adapt to change, we create it.
