A Message From Bill Raveis

raveis.family In 1974, I opened the first William Raveis Real Estate office in a room above a grocery store. My tools consisted of a desk, phone and an MLS book. My strength was our family, dreams and a passion to deliver the highest level of service to our customer.

Now, 39 years later, I am proud to say that William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance is one of the top companies in the nation. We are the #1 family-owned real estate firm in the Northeast, the #3 largest family-owned real estate company in the United States and 8th largest real estate firm nationwide based on sales volume; yet, we still offer the local, personalized attention that we did 39 years ago.

I am particularly proud that my sons, Chris and Ryan, are actively involved in the company, as well. They have been a part of my business life since they were old enough to understand what Dad did and have experienced every component of the real estate and mortgage industry. Now, with Chris as the Managing Partner of William Raveis NY and MA and Ryan in charge of our mortgage bankers, my dream of continuing in the family tradition for the next generation has materialized. We appreciate the contributions of our 3,000 sales associates, managers, staff and our mortgage and insurance team. Their hard work and expertise results in annual real estate sales of nearly $5.6 billion, 2,500 corporate relocation transferees a year and a total mortgage volume of $9 billion. We consider them to be our business family. Our philosophy is to build long and trusting relationships in a supportive environment while giving our team the opportunity to achieve success.

We embrace research and technology – always searching for ideas that will facilitate the buying and selling process. One of our landmark technology achievements lies in the creation of raveis.com. Since its inception in 1995, raveis.com has revolutionized the buying and selling experience. A wealth of information, ranging from simple property search to an evaluation of complex market statistics on local housing data, is available at the click of a mouse or at the touch of a finger on our mobile site.

As a family business, we are creating a legacy of values for our future business family that are as powerful as the tools and innovative ideas that have helped us become a leader in the real estate industry.

We invite you to join our thousands of satisfied clients and experience the William Raveis difference.
