About ERA Real Estate

ERA Real Estate was founded on the premise of building a franchise system based on the principle of collaboration- the idea that by working together and helping one another, a stronger community of real estate professionals could be built. Each ERA office helps strengthen the communities where they work and practice real estate.

Our global community of real estate professionals combines local neighborhood experience with up-to-the-minute real estate resources to deliver the results home buyers and sellers need today.

Buying and selling real estate is a process with many steps involved to complete a transaction. That's why we keep our approach as simple and straightforward as possible. This website and the ERA Real Estate YouTube Channel provide information about some of the most commonly asked questions about real estate. To find out more about your neighborhood, your home search, or selling your house contact an ERA Real Estate professional in your community.

Company History:

In 1971, Jim Jackson founded the company, originally called Electronic Realty Associates, with the vision of utilizing the latest technology – then a fax machine - to provide the highest quality service. Since that time, ERA Real Estate has continued its innovator role. In 1973, ERA Real Estate offered the first nationwide home warranty program. A few years later, the company introduced its ERA® Sellers Security® Plan, a unique program that offers qualified sellers a specific price and sales date. Today, ERA Real Estate continues to be a pioneer in the industry by capitalizing on the power of the Internet to offer unique offerings to both sales associates and consumers.


Corporate Charity:

Since 1977, ERA Real Estate has been the sole corporate sponsor from the real estate industry for the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). During that time, the ERA® network has raised nearly $35 million to help MDA fight neuromuscular diseases.
