When you think of Crawford County Real Estate, the name that comes to mind should be Kress! The Kress family mane has been synonymous with real estate since 1945. Vic Kress Sr. started the company, Vic Kress Real Estate, as a “one person operation” that year. In later years, his sons, Vic Kress Jr. in 1960 and Richard “Biff” Kress in 1976 after their college graduations, joined him. Vic Kress Sr. subsequently retired in 1977.
The two brothers continued to work and grow the business and in 1997 due in part to their outstanding reputation for providing professional real estate service were selected to join the Better Homes and Gardens real estate network. This network consists of over 1,300 real estate offices nationwide and has over 22,000 sales professionals. In 2000, GMAC Home Services Division purchased Better Homes and Gardens and the company became Kress GMAC Real Estate.
In 2010, GMAC Real Estate was bought out and became Real Living Real Estate. At that point, “Biff” was offered the opportunity to affiliate with the NUMBER ONE REAL ESTATE COMPANY IN THE WORLD…RE/MAX. Along with his long time co-worker and fellow broker, Andy Bacallao, they partnered to form RE/MAX Hometown Realty.
“Although we have been a recognized family name in Crawford County real estate for over 65 years, the day we joined RE/MAX everybody knows our name,” states Biff Kress. This is the result of the billions of dollars RE/MAX has invested over the years building the brand and the tens of millions of satisfied customers who’ve been assisted by RE/MAX Associates and cementing RE/MAX reputation for quality in real estate. Combine the powerful RE/MAX brand with our history of real estate service and you have a great new company…RE/MAX Hometown Realty.
