December 3, 2019 (Shelton, Conn.) — William Raveis Real Estate (WRRE), the top family-owned real estate company spanning the Northeast to Florida, and top real estate producer Renee Roberts, are pleased to announce the opening of two new offices in Canton and Sharon, Massachusetts today, further strengthening Raveis’ top market position in the state. The team has already affiliated 61 experienced sales agents, representing more than $200 million in sales volume and more than 400 transactions.
Roberts, the top producing real estate agent in Canton for the last 10 years and one of the highest producing realtors in Mass., will serve as managing principal and continue to grow the two offices. WRRE now has nearly 40 offices in Mass., representing approximately $3.8 billion in sales volume over the last 12 months. The company anticipates leveraging their business model with several new expansion opportunities throughout the state and the Northeast.
“We are fortunate to partner with Renee Roberts and welcome these talented agents, who are reputable experts in their market and region, to our growing Raveis family,” said Chris Raveis, President of Residential Sales for William Raveis Real Estate and Affiliates. “Company-wide, we are keenly focused on coaching and mentoring our agents to build careers at the highest levels. Renee matches our commitment and we’re excited to continue to grow in this region.”
“Becoming a part of the William Raveis team will enable us to better service our loyal clients with customized marketing, innovative tools, cutting edge technology and a global reach — but still maintain the hometown feel of a family-owned real estate company,” said Roberts. From investing in new resources and services, like state-of-the-art technology, tools and marketing, to providing top-tier coaching and training to empower their 4,100 agents to help
them succeed in real estate, WRRE is continuously at the forefront of innovation and nurturing talent. Last year, WRRE launched the William Raveis Certified Mentor and Coach program, the first-ever, company-wide, certified training program for managers so they can expertly guide the company’s agents and staff achieve their goals and building outstanding businesses. This year, WRRE is growing its strong foundation by partnering with Tom Ferry, the #1 real estate educator in the country.
When CEO William Raveis founded the family-owned company nearly 45 years ago, he was the first real estate entrepreneur to identify the agents as their primary customers, understanding that nurturing talent and empowering their agents with the best resources and services to take their business to the next level is imperative for success. This motto is the North Star that has guided him as his company has grown and expanded from a single office in Fairfield to 135 offices in nine states.
