William Raveis Real Estate Receives High Honors
Posted by Supriya Anand — April 27, 2011
William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance, the largest family-owned real estate company in the northeast, recently boosted its standing amongst other renowned brokerages, ranking #9 nationwide in sales volume and maintaining its standing as the #1 family-owned business in the northeast. These numbers were recently released by RisMedia’s 2011 Power Broker Report, an annual assemblage of the top 300 real estate companies in the United States.
Bill Raveis, Chairman and CEO of William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance, credited the company’s associates and staff for innovation and persistence in a challenging real estate market.
“We were able to increase market share and grow in an environment where real estate companies are consolidating and downsizing,” said Mr. Raveis. “This is a testament to our drive for providing innovative technology tools, education and competitive advantages to our agents, as well as our customers. Agent and customer needs are evolving along with an ever changing digital landscape and we are continuously thinking of and producing creative solutions to surpass their expectations. I believe this is one of several reasons William Raveis has become a national and international leader in real estate and the full suite of home services.”
William Raveis’ achievements in 2010 were impressive. In addition to increasing its market position, the company further expanded its footprint in the northeast. Seven new offices were opened in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island and experienced agents hired totaled a volume of over $800 million in sales production.
The firm also created the nation’s first free CRM, business management and marketing platform for its 2,700 agents, called Agent Dashboard. This tool enables increasingly mobile sales associates to manage their business anywhere, anytime.
