It all began with one man's vision.

Let's face it, real estate development is tough. It's a business in which only the best succeed. It takes drive, vision, purpose and an unrelenting passion.

At Raveis Marketing Group we understand what it takes to win. Our roots run deep in New England real estate. When Bill Raveis established William Raveis Real Estate in 1974, he had a phone, a desk, an MLS directory and a bold vision for selling real estate in new and creative ways.

His plan focused on people, not just property. It was about understanding customer needs and matching those needs to the right real estate solution. It was about applying new technologies. It was about doing the research. It was about integrity. It was about simply listening. And it was about hiring the right people who both shared his vision and his passion for his customers.

Like many an entrepreneur he was told he would never succeed, but he kept his course and the rest is history.

Fast forward 40 years. William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage and Insurance is now the largest family-owned real estate company in the Northeast and the 8th largest real estate company in the U.S.. Raveis company divisions have been awarded the Gold Medal distinction by the Commercial Record and Banker & Tradesman for five consecutive years. In 2011, the company was named the Most Innovative Brokerage by Inman News.

As part of a family-owned business, Raveis Marketing Group doesn't answer to outside corporate interests, Wall Street pressures or public markets. We answer only to you, our clients and customers. We know what it takes to succeed.
