Respected and innovative industry leader, Jose Perez, has been making a difference for over 25 years. After a long and storied career at Realogy, where he began as Franchise Sales Director for CENTURY 21 and rose to the rank of Senior Vice President of Franchise Sales and Acquisitions for CENTURY 21, Coldwell Banker, and ERA, Jose resigned in July 2007 to launch PCMS Consulting. While at Realogy, he was responsible for the affiliation and/or acquisition of thousands of companies generating millions of dollars in fees. In addition, he was a frequent speaker at company events, trained hundreds of sales people, and played an active role in helping develop many systems that are still in place today. As an entrepreneur, Jose set out to position PCMS Consulting to be at the forefront of the emerging real estate brokerage industry. His mantra is the REinvention of the real estate brokerage. He and his team of forward thinking industry professionals and strategic partners focus on delivering innovative solutions that leading companies require to enhance their market position and profitability. His vision is focused on helping brokerages bridge the gap between the growing expectations of consumers and the lack of innovation the industry has been able to deliver over the past few years. As a result, PCMS has become synonymous with broker REinvention. Programs like Camp REinvent™ as well as hard-hitting blogs, articles, and speaking engagements, have solidified Jose’s industry leadership position and allowed PCMS to grow every year it has been in business. An accomplished guitarist, Jose often entertains clients at company functions. He is also an avid racquetball player, cook, and fan of great cuisine. Jose currently resides in Atlanta, GA with his wife of 25 years. He has two boys aged 23 and 18.
