IRVINE, CA–(Marketwired – Jul 15, 2013) – JWilliams Staffing, the leading source of staffing and recruitment solutions for the real estate industry, is offering franchise opportunities throughout the United States. Franchisees will offer the company's proven staffing expertise to builders and property management companies seeking specialized candidates and new job opportunities to qualified industry professionals.
The expansion of JWilliams Staffing, which is already well-established in California, Arizona, Nevada, Texas and Colorado, comes at a very promising time. The national unemployment rate has dropped to 7.6%, reducing the available supply of capable workers that employers require. In addition, with the housing industry recovering, companies whose staffs have been depleted during the recent downturn are looking for help finding the experts they need to capitalize on the resurgence.
'According to the American Staffing Association, U.S. staffing companies employed an average of 2.86 million temporary and contract workers per day in the first quarter of 2013,' explained JoAnne Williams, president and founder of JWilliams Staffing. 'We have a strong presence in the market, and we come to the table with solutions that will help our clients meet the growing need for temporary employees. We identify good people, not just good resumes, and we do the pre-screening that today's busy executives don't have time to do.'
Williams added, 'When you become a JWilliams franchisee, you gain the advantage of being affiliated with the number-one real estate staffing firm in the country in terms of gross revenue, geographic coverage area and number of employees. We offer a proven business model to launch and expand your business and the expertise to help you make smart decisions. You also have the benefit of our commitment to your future, and you avoid much of the risk and initial mistakes involved in starting a new business on your own. We've been doing this successfully for 10 years — even during the real estate downturn — and everything that we have learned will lead to your success. Plus I have worked on the sales and marketing side of the business, so I know what the challenges are and how to collaborate with you in order to overcome them and achieve greater profitability.'
Along with targeting new-home builders, franchisees will have the opportunity to fulfill the needs of property management companies serving the booming and consistent apartment market. 'Apartment developers are building in all metro areas,' Williams pointed out, 'and the staffing industry in general is on fire. The reason is simple: part-time workers are in demand because they keep overhead down.' In the property management field, JWilliams Staffing currently does business with several well-respected companies in the property management industry including Western National Group and Riverstone Residential.
JWilliams franchisees will receive hands-on training at the company's corporate headquarters in Irvine, CA. The training program includes recruitment, candidate assessment and the specialized training of candidates to fill specific positions. Franchisees will also receive operations, marketing and public relations support for their grand opening; ongoing support and guidance; regular visits from the JWilliams executive team; and a proprietary back office support program that includes payroll, invoicing clients, payroll tax filings and dispatching of candidates.
JWilliams Staffing also has an impressive roster of big-name home-builder clients, including Lennar Homes, The New Home Company, TRI Pointe Homes, and Standard Pacific Homes. Doug Bauer, CEO of TRI Pointe Homes stated, 'JWilliams Staffing is our go-to resource for top-quality real estate sales and marketing professionals. Their recruitment and selection process is extremely thorough, and they bring us people who understand our specialized needs.'
JWilliams Staffing is a full-service real estate staffing agency that provides personnel who meet the complete spectrum of real estate industry needs, including general office, administration and accounting staff and special events staff as well as new home sales and marketing professionals.
