William “Bill” Raveis, founder and CEO, who launched the company 50 years ago, has grown it into a luxury real estate powerhouse with more than 4,500 agents in eight states. “We are the number one luxury brokerage across our marketplace and sharing our business model and 140-office footprint gives CRG an unparalleled marketing network, agent coaching programs, along with Raveis365, a one-of-a-kind communication and technology platform developed exclusively for us by Microsoft.” Raveis continues, “Our South Carolina expansion is the next strategic step in building our luxury marketplace from Maine to Florida. It’s a win-win for all clients and sales associates.”

“The two CRG branches, one on Hilton Head Island and another in Bluffton, further connect and strengthen our position among our many branches in the Northeast and South Florida,” says Matt Lane, General Manager for William Raveis Florida and South Carolina. “We are very active right now. We have found a great partner in the Prud’homme family and together we are excited to get started on our growth in South Carolina and will use our success in Florida as a framework”, adds Lane.
Dan and Sheri Prud’homme, owners of Carolina Realty Group, talk about their alliance with William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage, and Insurance, “Our team is thrilled. Being welcomed by a top family real estate company, that is also committed to growing like we are, is an incredible opportunity for us. Through the Raveis referral network, clients down in Florida as well as up in New York and New England now have a stream of services to help them buy and sell here. It’s a completely seamless process, and we’re ready for it.”
Highlighting its strength in the luxury marketplace, year to date average selling price for Carolina Realty Group is nearly $900,000, as compared to the marketplace average selling price of just under $700,000 as of June 2023.
