Business Digest: Clovis Realty joins national franchise

CNJ staff

Clovis Realty and Associates at 201 E. Llano Estacado Blvd. has joined a national franchise and become Exit Clovis Realty, according to one of the owners.

Lonnie Mitchell said the firm joined Exit Realty because of the benefits to sales associates as well as clients.

“I believe it has some benefit for our agents,” he said. For example, the company offers sales associates residual benefits in retirement, he said. “That’s a big plus for any agent.”

He also said using Exit Realty’s national network for referrals will help clients.

Mitchell said the Clovis office will service Curry and Roosevelt counties.

He and his wife and co-owner Cindy are lifelong Curry County residents and have farmed near Clovis for more than 30 years, according to an Exit Realty New Mexico news release.

The Clovis office has 12 licensed sales associates.

Information: 762-4200.

North Plains Mall will host a home-based business expo from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

The event will include a variety of home-based businesses, according to information posted on the mall’s Web site.

The businesses will offer products for sale as well as provide information about becoming a new consultant and booking shows.
