Company Begins to Execute on its Planned Roll-Up Strategy
Celebration, FL, Oct. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — La Rosa Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: LRHC) (“La Rosa” or the “Company”), a holding company for five agent-centric, technology-integrated, cloud-based, multi-service real estate companies, today announced that it has acquired a controlling interest in the Company’s franchisee – La Rosa Realty Lake Nona, Inc. (“Lake Nona”) located in Orlando, Florida.
Lake Nona generated revenue in excess of $9.8 million and positive net income in 2022. The franchisee provides residential and commercial real estate brokerage services. It also provides coaching and support services to agents on a fee basis.
“We are excited to welcome the franchisee into the corporate organization,” said Joe La Rosa, CEO of La Rosa Holdings Corp. “We believe that not only does this acquisition expand our footprint in Florida, but it will also increase our top line revenue. With future planned franchisee acquisitions, we expect both our top line and bottom line to improve considerably as our current infrastructure is set up to support five times our current agent count. We have a brokerage model which is agent centric with 100% commission. In our view, our agent-centric commission model enables our sales agents to obtain higher net commissions than they would otherwise receive from many of our competitors in our local markets. We provide our real estate brokers and sales agents who are seeking financial independence with a turnkey solution and support them in growing their brokerages while they fund their own businesses. This enables us to maintain a low fixed-cost business model with several recurring revenue streams, yielding relatively high margins and cash flow. Moreover, we believe that our proprietary technology, training, and the support that we provide to our agents at a minimal cost to them is one of the best offered in the industry. Our strategy is to drive exponential growth to capitalize on the changing agency model trends occurring in the industry.”
