This effort required extensive resources, including a project team comprised of ERA Live Moore Executive Leadership and rebranding teams, affiliated agents and staff, as well as key members of ERA Real Estate’s and Anywhere’s corporate marketing, technology and communications departments. From taking advantage of the ERA brand’s marketing tools, including new signage and branded collateral, recruiting presentations, to creating a new vision and set of values to chart this path forward, ERA Live Moore was able to showcase who the company is and where they are going.
