Jose Perez, Founder and President
Respected and innovative industry leader, Jose Perez, has been making a difference for almost 30 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. While at Realogy, he was responsible for the affiliation and/or acquisition of thousands of companies generating hundreds of millions of dollars in fees. In addition, he was a frequent speaker at company events, trained both domestic and international 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 as an alternative to traditional real estate franchising. 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 a suite of innovative, a la carte, solutions 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 agents 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. PCMS programs like Camp REinvent™ along with tools such as the REinvent Assessment™ in addition to hard-hitting blogs, articles, and speaking engagements, have solidified Jose’s industry leadership position and allowed PCMS to prosper in spite of the tough market conditions that existed during the real recession.
As President of PCMS, Jose is responsible for driving the growth of the organization while maintaining a pulse on the needs of its clients. Since many brokerages rely on PCMS’ advice as they strive to REinvent their businesses, he and his team are committed to vetting solutions so clients don’t have to.
Born in Cuba, Jose and his family immigrated to the United States in 1962. He grew up in New York City and finished high school in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where his father had been transferred. He has a Bachelor’s degree from the University of Miami where he majored in Finance and Economics. He also has an MBA in Real Estate from the University of Texas at Austin. He is fluent in Spanish and Portuguese.
An accomplished guitarist, Jose often entertains clients at company functions. He is also an avid racquetball player, cook, and fan of great cuisine. Jose divides his time between Miami, FL and Atlanta, GA with his wife of 27 years. He has two boys aged 25 and 20.
