Katie Totten Joins Award-Winning Brokerage
William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance (WRRE), the top family-owned real estate brokerage in the Northeast, spanning to South Florida, announces it has tapped real estate veteran Katie Totten to join the award-winning team as a Senior Vice President and Regional Strategic Growth and Sales Manager for offices located in Greater Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. Totten will be responsible for business growth through strategic relationship-building in the industry and throughout WRRE’s eight-state footprint, which includes agent recruitment, coaching and mentoring agents to build their businesses and developing marketing initiatives for the agents.
“We chose Katie for this position because she is a dynamic leader with a keen eye and an excellent reputation,” said Chris Raveis, president of residential sales of William Raveis Real Estate. “She has a proven track record of success with supporting her sales associates achieve their goals through coaching and mentoring. Her goals are perfectly aligned with our company’s culture and philosophy of coaching and servicing our sales associates.”
Totten brings more than 15 years of real estate experience, including selling, managing and coaching. Totten was most recently responsible for leading the West Hartford, Conn. office at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. Prior, she was a sales associate and then the office leader in Woodstock, Conn.
“I have always had a deep respect for the William Raveis brand. For me it stood for luxury; it stood for excellence,” she said. “As an agent competing for a listing, I always knew I had to up my game when up against a Raveis agent. They had the best marketing; they had the best website. As a manager, I knew that the Raveis manager had the most knowledgeable agents in the business. They focused on supporting and training their team. That is why when this opportunity was presented to me, to join the William Raveis family, I knew it was the best fit.”
When William “Bill” Raveis founded the family-owned company 47 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.
“I love the real estate business,” said Totten. “As a manager, I love helping our agents grow their business beyond what they could imagine and to be top in the industry. Since joining the William Raveis team, I have been introduced to our platform and programs and what we can offer an agent to be the top in the industry. I am blown away by our tools and technology! It is very apparent how successful our agents can be, backed by the brand. I feel very fortunate to have found my passion and made it my profession.”
