Celebrating 85 Years of Real Estate Innovation

by admin on August 24, 2010

uflogoOrangeUnited Country Real Estate’s rich heritage began in Kansas City, Mo., 85 years ago this month when Roscoe L. Chamberlain founded United Farm Agency.

Since that time many things have changed for the company, including the name, but many have also stayed the same, including Chamberlain’s original 1925 mission of providing people in urban and suburban areas a “roadmap to the country.”

Chamberlain’s innovative spirit has remained the foundation for what the company has become today. We celebrate the contributions of many great leaders who have championed Mr. Chamberlain’s mission throughout the years, the dedicated employees whose work continues to make this company successful, the hardworking franchisees, brokers, sales agents and auctioneers who have represented our brand so well over the years and especially our buyers and sellers, who it remains a pleasure to serve.

As we look back on our heritage this week, we want to know: What is YOUR favorite memory of United Country?

After being associated with United Country for less than 3 years, my first favorite memory so far is when Dan Duffy helped me promote our new association by calling into our local radio station for a live interview. This meant so much to me and I have not forgotten this.

My second favorite was working with United Country Haden Realty (formerly Jack Clancy Agency) just six months after joining and auctioning off 1.1 million dollars worth of land that had been on the market for over a year. It’s a great life . . .

One very clear memory Ihave of United Farm comes from about 30 years ago. I was about 7 years old and my parents owned a United Farm office in Colorado. While they were busy hustling for listings, meeting wtih clients and keep deals together, they “hired” my sister and I to staple tri-folds together that contained information about our town for buyers that were not familiar with our area. We would get $.05 a piece for every piece that we put together and stuffed into an envelope. Every time we would do a mailing, they would get busy showing property. We’d do another mailing…and they’d get even busier. It’s pretty amazing that the system that was working in the 1970’s is still working so well today!
