YARMOUTH PORT, Mass. (April 4, 2013)—Chris Raveis, managing partner of William Raveis Massachusetts, today announced that William Raveis has opened a new office in Yarmouth Port, Mass.
This announcement comes on the heels of the recent acquisition of South Boston’s $341M powerhouse firm GKR residential* and adding a new affiliate partner, Delta Real Estate, expanding their presence in to Medfield, Mass. A decade ago, William Raveis began expansion outside its home state of Connecticut and, in those 10 years, the company has established 45 offices throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York and New Hampshire.
“Our business model is unique versus other companies we compete against in the Northeast,” said Mr. Raveis. “We are a privately held family business that has a strict focus on the success of our sales associates. We empower them with cutting edge technology and marketing tools that allow them to be more skilled and effective in servicing their customers and clients. The company has grown significantly by attracting the most talented experienced sales associates where we have opened new offices.”
William Raveis is now the largest independent brokerage in Massachusetts with 31 offices and over 700 agents and employees.
“As we expand our presence in to Yarmouth Port, our entire team is excited to begin providing superb customer service to home buyers and sellers on Cape Cod’s Northside,” said Wendy Beaulieu, vice president of William Raveis Cape Cod. “Our team understands Cape Cod’s unique real estate market, and is prepared to begin marketing homes throughout the Cape’s beautiful bayside and historic Rte. 6A.”
The Yarmouth Port office is supported by a team of experienced, highly-professional agents. The office opens its doors with 11 experience agents with a lifetime sales volume of over $350 million*. Included among this esteemed group of agents is Peggy Crampton, a 25-year veteran of the Cape Cod real estate market with a lifetime sales volume of over $106 million* and Mark Uppendahl an experienced Cape Cod realtor with over $64 million* in lifetime sales volume.
William Raveis is excited to see continued growth in Massachusetts, and is confident that the new Yarmouth Port office will be a successful addition to its local community.
