ERA was the first real estate group to enter the African continent. Since 1993, when a master licensing agreement with ERA Franchise Systems Inc. USA was concluded, it has grown to a formidable player within the real estate industry in South Africa. ERA South Africa merged with Jigsaw Holdings Limited in 1999 and is currently one of the largest real estate franchise groups in South Africa. Presently ERA South Africa consists of a number of select, independently owned and operated real estate companies, each a market leader in its field. ERA began selling franchises in the USA in 1972 and in 1981 began its international expansion programme – a world first! Cendant Corporation, the world’s largest consumer and business Services Company, owns the global ERA® brand.
