ALPHARETTA, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) – If you’re one of many who are currently unemployed, you may be in luck.

According to the Atlanta Business Chronicle, one area real estate company is willing to invest thousands to create new job opportunities.

However, there is a catch.

Frank Duffy of Duffy Realty says he will only create the jobs if Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney wins this Tuesday’s election.

“It’s about a $50,000 investment that we’re willing to make on these new agents,”  Duffy told WGCL-TV. “It’ll only happen if there’s a Republican in the White House after Wednesday. If there’s a President-Elect Romney, we’re willing to make that investment.”

Some jobs will still open up at Duffy Realty even if current President Barack Obama is re-elected, though it will not amount to the reported 100 openings Duffy would potentially bankroll if Romney wins.

“I’m not willing to take that $50,000 out of my cash to make that investment,” Duffy added to the station. “I will hire agents piecemeal, five, six, seven, eight at a time, but I’m not going to make the investment going out on a limb to help the unemployed … start their life over.”

He reportedly supports Romney because he feels he’ll be better for small business. Despite his choice in candidate, however, Duffy did tell admit to WGCL-TV that his company has succeeded during President Obama’s time in office.
