Posted by John Biondolillo — February 3, 2012
The office will remain at 1360 US Route 4 in Mendon, allowing BCK Real Estate to offer nine real estate office locations conveniently located throughout Central and Northern Vermont. Louise Harrison Real Estate has a long and proud history in Mendon, Killington and Rutland Counties. Louise Harrison, Broker/Owner said, “This is the right time for our company to align with the best real estate company in the state.”
"Louise Harrison has a proven track record of delivering top-quality service to clients for many years in all kinds of market conditions. The experience and knowledge of the agents, coupled with the BCK’s tools and technology, will be a great asset to buyers and sellers in the area,” said John Biondolillo, President and CEO of BCK Real Estate. “What appeals to the brokers we partner with is the fact that they can maintain their independence while tapping into our successful infrastructure.” said Biondolillo “When you combine the wealth of knowledge and experience that Louise Harrison brings to the table, combined with BCK’s cutting edge systems, it is a win-win for everyone – the broker, agents and their customers and clients. We are thrilled to be associated with her.”
Marcia Biondolillo, native Vermonter and company CFO, adds, “From a business standpoint, we are able to combine budgets, marketing and advertising in a more strategic and cost-effective manner. Real estate is cyclical, and as in past mergers of this type, the local real estate market has consolidated to create new alliances with great success.”
“We’re small enough to ensure local knowledge, local control and continued community involvement, yet large enough to provide the range of services and technologies typically associated with national companies that today’s consumer demands,” added Biondolillo.
In addition to residential home sales, BCK has a commercial division specializing in commercial & investment sales and leasing. Louise Harrison Real Estate currently offers short & long term quality rentals. One area that the company plans to emphasize is vacation rentals. BCK, through its Stowe Realty office, currently leases over 300 vacation properties in Stowe. “We enjoy matching vacationers with high quality rentals. We feel like there is a good opportunity to help Killington vacationers much like we are already doing in Stowe,” said Biondolillo. Louise Harrison is the newest member of the BCK family which includes Stowe Realty and Quatrini Real Estate and currently offers locations in Barre, Montpelier, Morrisville, Northfield, Rochester, St. Johnsbury, Stowe, and Waterbury as well as Mendon.
BCK can trace its origin to Berg, Carmolli & Kent Real Estate Company in Barre starting in 1981. Even in today’s economic climate BCK Real Estate continues to expand and prosper. BCK opened offices in Northfield and Rochester in 2008. In 2009 it acquired Potvin Real Estate in Barre and Stowe Realty. Last year BCK acquired Quatrini Real Estate (St. Johnsbury) and All Seasons Rentals (Stowe). To contact Louise Harrison Real Estate, call (802) 775-9999. January 31, 2012
