RE/Max real estate veterans Joseph Madaio, Robert Coppolino and Sal Carola have opened new offices in Brooklyn and Staten Island.
The two RE/MAX Elite offices are located at 8201 Third Avenue in Bay Ridge and 7001 Amboy Road, Staten Island.
The new offices are part of a larger New York expansion by the franchise giant, which now has 18 offices in the city and nearly 200 agents.
In June, founder and president Dave Liniger named a new co-CEO to lead daily operations as he focuses on growth across both New York and New Jersey.
“We have a talented and dedicated group of leaders at RE/MAX and I’ve been actively working with them to build our future,” said Liniger.
The newest offices are home to dozens of RE/MAX professionals providing residential, commercial, industrial, co-op,condo, multi-family and investment property brokerage services as well as insurance services and mortgage financing.
Madaio has been in the real estate industry since 1984; Coppolino and Carola since the early 2000s. Madaio opened the first of two RE/MAX offices in Brooklyn in 1991.
After selling the business in 2008, he remained manager of RE/MAX Metro’s Third Ave. location and is now a co-Broker/owner of RE/MAX Elite.
“Our ownership team has been with the RE/MAX System for many years and we welcome the opportunity to grow the brand here in Brooklyn and Staten Island. RE/MAX offers the best approach in the industry for real estate professionals and we are confident that our office will thrive,” said Madaio.
“RE/MAX is the No. 1 brand in real estate because of the trust, quality service and professionalism by all of its agents.”
Coppolino joined RE/MAX 1st Choice in 2005 and remained when the office became part of RE/MAX Metro in 2008. He is now co-Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Elite.
“Working with top real estate professionals and helping them serve buyers and sellers is what we focus on every day,” said Coppolino.
“Whether it is finding a couple their first home or a dream home, our RE/MAX professionals are committed to getting the job done; this is why they are the elite in the real estate business.”
Carola joined RE/MAX Regal in Staten Island in 2005. Three years later he joined RE/MAX Metro and is now co-Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Elite.
He said 30 agents are working from the office and the firm expects to add at least ten more within the year.
All three broker/owners (pictured top) have each been recipients of many real estate and RE/MAX awards, including RE/MAX’s Hall of Fame, Lifetime Achievement and Platinum Awards.
