Our new Cohasset, Mass. office will be afforded the full support and backing of the William Raveis family of companies.”

“Cohasset embodies New England’s history and character,” said David Friend, sales manager of the Cohasset office.  “Coastal Living Magazine named the town one of America’s top 15 happiest seaside towns and, with only 7500 residents, it provides a small town feel with the amenities of living close to Boston.  William Raveis Real Estate looks forward to being a successful member of the community.”

William Raveis continues to solidify its position as the largest independent brokerage in Massachusetts with 33 offices and over 700 agents and employees.
