Giuseppe “JP” Piccinini is the Founder of JP and Associates REALTORS® (JPAR) as well as chairman of the board for Vesuvius Holdings LLC, the holding company over JPAR, JPAR Franchising, and LendGenie.
A real estate agent turned entrepreneur, an author, philanthropist and a proud father; Piccinini was born in Naples, Italy and immigrated to the US when he was just 13 years old. In his new hometown of Wichita Falls, TX, he attended Burkburnett High School and had a crash course in English and American culture. After high school, his parents returned to Italy, but he stayed to pursue the American dream, earning a BS degree in Engineering at Midwestern University and beginning his journey.
Piccinini became a top-selling agent in South Carolina, closing 10 times more deals in a year than an average REALTOR®. After several years of selling and hundreds of deals under his belt, he was compelled to move back to Texas in DFW to be close to his family. In October 2011, in his home at Frisco, Texas, Piccinini began JPAR with a vision of a real estate brokerage firm dedicated to exceeding expectations through productivity and true service. His plan was to train and hire only full-time career real estate professionals who shared the same passion for real estate and helping others as he did.
“Build a company so valuable for our REALTORS® that the value it brings to THEIR business will be PRICELESS,” says JPPiccinini, Founder, and Owner of JP & Associates REALTORS®.
In 2012, he embarked on his entrepreneurial journey with a team of 3 agents and now he is celebrated for growing JPAR to a national real estate firm of 1800 agents closing $3B in sales by 2018. The firm is ranked as the #50 real estate brokerage in the US by ‘Sales Volume’ and the fastest-growing 100% real estate company by ‘Real Trends’. JPAR evolved as a franchise organization in December 2018, now holds a number of well-operating offices in 6 states and is moving forward together with the goal to be in all 50 states by 2023. With the company’s overly successful 100%-commission model, it truly is a full-service brokerage at a transaction-cap model cost, with a productivity standard and a service-based culture.
Why would a client choose to work with JPAR?
When asked this question, Piccinini says,
“A better question would be ‘why would they not?’ With more than just a sign in the yard and a listing in the MLS, a JPAR agent is empowered to: leverage our national and local networks of buyers and investors to generate a faster and stronger offer; market listings online, in person and in mail; ensure the seller that incoming inquiries from certain portals are answered with a human calling within 8 minutes; and coordinate a smooth closing with local partners to make necessary repairs, handle their move and connect their utilities.”
As America’s fastest-growing 100%-commission real estate company with the motto of ‘exceeding expectations’, trademarked for those who seek high standards; JPAR offers its agents some of the strongest compensation plans in the industry while receiving top-of-the-line technology, support, coaching, and training. JPAR currently has 23 company-owned offices open and 11 franchise offices open. They have sold over 40 franchises in their first 6 months of operation as a franchise organization, many of which are contracted to open in the next couple of years. It is remarkable how JPAR has grown into a huge family of more than 2000 agents who specialize in a variety of fields under commercial and residential real estate. Their agents are ready to work with anyone from a first-time home buyer or tenant to an experienced investor.
Why franchise with JPAR?
With a low-cost and high service model, JPAR provides its franchise owners with specific training courses and a centralized support system and compliance. The franchise partners are invited to the corporate headquarters to attend ‘Broker School’, a week about how to run a JPAR franchise office. They go over every aspect of running the business which includes best practices, compliance, marketing, recruiting, strategy and space planning along with additional training video calls and coaching.
Led by an experienced team of industry-recognized and award-winning professionals who are committed to the growth of all their franchisees, JPAR provides a base level of recruiting campaigns, masterminds and training sessions that drive an abundance of leads for the partners. ‘B.O.S.S.S’ i.e. Broker One Stop Shop System is JPAR’s industry-leading tech platform that brings all vital services, training, and support onto a single sign-on platform, provides help with listings, lead generation, professional development, CRM, social media and benefits for agents. Piccinini assures, “We handle a portion of your compliance and administrative burden by onboarding new agents and handling document review and sending necessary funding documents to the title. This allows you to focus on the parts of your business that matter to you most.”
