April 13, 2018 (Shelton, Conn.) — William Raveis Real Estate (WRRE), the top family-owned real estate company in the Northeast, recently announced a multi-year partnership with the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park.
As the “Official Realtor of the Boston Red Sox,” WRRE has cross promotions and branded advertising visible throughout Fenway Park which launched at the home opener Thursday, April 5. Since expanding to Boston 15 years ago, WRRE has brought a new perspective to the area’s real estate industry by focusing on the core values of a family business: a commitment to the community, candor and courtesy. The brokerage has partnered with some of the brightest stars of Boston real estate and offer their clients local knowledge and global reach.
“We are happy to announce that William Raveis Real Estate is now the Official Realtor of the Boston Red Sox!” said WRRE co-president Ryan Raveis. “We are excited to partner with such a great organization that shares many of the same values as the William Raveis Companies: from the commitment to the Boston-area community, to the respect we have in our relationships, to the quest for providing top-notch quality services.”
“We are thrilled to welcome William Raveis Real Estate to the Red Sox family,” said Red Sox Executive Vice President Troup Parkinson. “Much like the Red Sox, William Raveis made a commitment to the New England region over a decade and half ago, and we look forward to working with them throughout the season as they further expand their footprint to include Fenway Park.”
The three-year partnership agreement includes: sponsorships of all NESN home-game broadcasts, TV commercials on New England Sports Network (NESN), commercials on Fenway’s outfield video board prior to the start of all 81 home games, TV-visible branded billboards behind home plate, pavilion-level LED signage in the infield pavilion, as well as online and social promotions. The Red Sox will also highlight a realtor of the month for the five-month season who will get a private tour of Fenway, access to a VIP batting practice and branding on the scoreboard.
