ERA Real Estate

Stepping into the role of president and CEO of ERA Franchise Systems LLC in March 2018, Simon Chen challenged his staff and the entire ERA network to get back to the entrepreneurial roots that made them great as Electronic Realty Associates (ERA’s original name).

Having studied molecular biology, industrial design and business in college, Chen went to work for a consulting firm after graduation, investing in real estate on the side. As an investor, he saw a tremendous need and opportunity for innovation in real estate.
