The Big Realty office in Fresno is growing and its business model is changing as the real estate market recovers.
The company, which opened its Fresno real estate office on West Shaw Avenue in 2009, specialized in foreclosure properties and helping struggling minority homeowners make decisions about their homes.
“Now our focus has changed into growing as a company and helping agents build their business,” said Mark Chu, broker. The company also wants to help educate today’s buyers, he said.
Big Realty, which has 23 agents, moved into a new 5,000-square-foot office at 1273 E. Shaw Ave., near Fashion Fair Mall, early last month. A grand opening will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. today to tour the office and meet with real estate experts including those from the mortgage and insurance industries.
The company plans to add more agents in the future. The new office gives Big Realty an additional 3,000 square feet of space to conduct training classes for agents and to hold homeownership classes for first-time buyers or veterans.
A first-time homebuyer education class will be held on Dec. 7. For more information, call (559) 389-7777.
