Legends Realty Group Joins William Raveis Real Estate As Affiliate...
William Raveis Real Estate Announces Its New Affiliate, William Raveis Legends Realty Group
SLEEPY HOLLOW, NY- Chris Raveis, President of William Raveis Affiliates, recently announced the alliance of William Raveis Real Estate with Legends Realty Group, an independent brokerage in Sleepy Hollow, New York.
The addition of the Legends office to the William Raveis network shows their continued commitment to grow its affiliate program throughout the northeast. Legends Realty Group is the fifth company to join the William Raveis Affiliates network. William Raveis Affiliates also offers franchise opportunities to existing and start-up real estate organizations in select markets.
Marcene Hedayati remains as the Broker and Managing Partner of the new William Raveis Legends Realty Group. She, along with her four partners, Elvira Aloia, Mary Case Friedner, Phyllis Lerner and Karen Stroub, are looking forward to the opportunities afforded by this union. Prior to the affiliation with William Raveis, Legends Realty Group existed as an independent brokerage with 19 sales associates. During that time and since their inception in 2007, the group held number one market share in Tarrytown and Sleepy Hollow.
Hedayati is looking forward to phenomenal growth with the backing of William Raveis Real Estate, a highly respected, family-owned real estate firm. "The partnership with William Raveis gives us the ability to grow and expand into areas that would have been more difficult otherwise," she said. "We will have the best of both worlds. We will be able to continue nurturing our current business practices and methods that have distinguished us from the rest and at the same time, enjoy the many tools and systems that you can only find in a larger company, not to mention their exceptional education program and second to none referral network. Most importantly, we are fortunate to have found a company that shares our philosophy and culture."
