Published Wednesday, December 2, 2015

CENTURY 21 Affiliated is pleased to announce a partnership with CENTURY 21 First Realty located in Appleton, WI.  The company will operate under CENTURY 21 Affiliated First Realty and specialize in residential and commercial property sales.

As respected and innovative real estate brokerage companies in their own right, the coming together of these companies means more opportunities for area home buyers and sellers.

Candace Kriner, owner of CENTURY 21 First Realty, first joined the CENTURY 21 franchise in June of 1999 while simultaneously merging with another local firm, Shorewest Fox Valley REALTORS, owned by Keith Sippel. Both Kriner and Sippel will continue with CENTURY 21 Affiliated First Realty. Kriner will remain an owner and Team Leader of the new entity, with Sippel managing agents with transactions, training and contracts.

“The primary motive in establishing this partnership between myself and CENTURY 21 Affiliated is to solidify the long-term future of the company and all the people who choose to work here,” said Kriner. “I am excited about our future because we are associating with a firm that has a solid reputation, a bias for growth, and energetic leadership that will carry us forward for decades in the Fox Cities market. We will continue to be a very viable CENTURY 21 presence in the Fox Cities and surrounding areas, and we will remain a prominent player in this market.”

CENTURY 21 Affiliated First Realty has 25 real estate sales associates, with 8 individuals and two teams earning prestigious national CENTURY 21 awards in 2014. For 2015, even more agents are on track for these awards. The office itself has consistently been a Centurion office, won the Quality Service Pinnacle Award, the Presidents Award and the Per Person Productivity Award.

“Kriner and CENTURY 21 First Realty have built a solid and successful real estate firm with a reputation for high quality customer service and high per agent productivity,” said Dan Kruse, President and CEO of CENTURY 21 Affiliated. “We are thrilled to team up with such an established team of agents that share our business philosophy about 100% dedication to the consumer and the community.”

“Going forward, we are excited that this culture will continue to flourish due to our partner’s similar philosophies and business practices,” said Kriner.

Through this merger, CENTURY 21 Affiliated now stands as one of the largest real estate brokerages in the Midwest with 1,600 licensed sales professionals and 80+ offices.
