William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance, the largest family owned real estate brokerage company in the Northeast, has officially launched a new division: Raveis Escapes.
“We have seen a huge demand from New Yorkers looking to purchase homes in markets outside of the city and we’re the ideal brokerage to be the ‘one-stop shop’ they need,” noted Kathy Braddock, who along with Paul Purcell serves as a managing director at William Raveis New York City.
“Raveis Escapes allows us to empower these potential buyers — many of whom are frustrated by the prices and process of owning in the city — with capturing a bit of the American dream in other highly desirable towns and cities, from Cape Cod to Candlewood Lake, Nantucket to Croton and everything in between.
“While many still want to use their city home as a hub, they are interested in reaping the benefits of buying, such as tax deductions and lifestyle perks, particularly with today’s attractive mortgage rates.”
The New York City office is serving a conduit for Raveis Escapes, analyzing the needs of prospective buyers, honing in on the best possible locations and connecting them with an appropriate local agent for their search.
William Raveis will also issue bi-monthly email blasts with a round-up of featured, themed properties for buyers to consider.
Purcell added, “We are in a unique position to provide buyers with the on-the-ground knowledge they need to make such an important financial decision. This is the kind of detailed insider information you can only get from working with firms who have a genuine local presence in these locations.”
