ERA Insite Realty Celebrates 25 Years of Growth in Westchester County
Posted by Barbara Wollenberg — January 26, 2011
White Plains, NY (January 24, 2011) – ERA Insite Realty Services, a full service, family owned and operated residential real estate firm headquartered in White Plains, recently celebrated its 25th year of successful business in Westchester County. The firm, which is the region’s #1 ERA company and in the top 100 of ERA companies nationwide, commemorated its silver anniversary by announcing that they will donate $25 from every closed sale in 2011 to The Bridge Fund of Westchester, a privately funded program whose mission is to prevent homelessness for the working poor.
Prospering in any business for 25 years is a milestone, but growing in the recent economy and real estate market is quite another. While many local real estate firms are downsizing, ERA Insite has grown significantly in the past five years through a series of mergers with competing firms, including ERA Save, ERA Gem of Yonkers, and ERA Advantage of Pleasantville. Their most recent merger was with Greentree Realty and Relocation Company of White Plains. Established in 2002 by Gabriela Kosek and partner Mel Weill, Greentree developed into a major force in Westchester’s rental brokerage business. This latest merger reinforces ERA Insite’s already highly recognized and award-winning rental and relocation division. “We are thrilled to welcome the talented, customer-centric real estate professionals of Greentree Realty and Relocation to further strengthen our expertise,” said Lou Budetti, a principal broker who founded ERA Insite with his wife, Debra Budetti, a relocation specialist.
ERA Insite’s 25-year history is rich in community outreach. In speaking to the firm’s recent decision to donate to The Bridge Fund of Westchester, Debra Budetti said, “The core responsibility of a real estate professional is to help people who are in need of a home. There is no better way to celebrate our success and share our responsibility than by helping to maintain shelter for those who struggle to keep a roof over their heads.”
With an experienced team of over 100 knowledgeable agents and longstanding roster of both corporate and individual clients, ERA Insite has built a reputation of outstanding service within the real estate industry and throughout the community. ERA Insite’s team of agents are qualified in all areas of real estate including residential sales, residential rentals, relocations, foreclosures, short sales, and commercial and investment properties. Many are also fluent in a number of foreign languages. ERA Insite Realty Services is headquartered at 600 North Broadway in White Plains, NY with a second location at 639 McLean Avenue in Yonkers, NY.
