(New York, NY) — Growing to 51 locations in just over two years, Rapid Realty is making moves and carving out a niche in the high stakes world of New York City real estate.
Its secret weapon appears to be two-fold: the strategic promotion of a Rapid Realty franchise ownership and strong brand positioning as NYC’s only rental based franchise company.
This time, Rapid Realty is expanding where it planted its roots – Brooklyn.
On Sunday, BrokerPulse had the privilege of attending their latest location opening in Clinton Hill. There were over 300 people in attendance for the ribbon cutting ceremony, including numerous Rapid Realty franchisees who came out to show their support and welcome co-franchisees of the Clinton Hill location Ernest Hill and Paul Perez into the close-knit Rapid franchisee network.
High profile attendees included Carlo Scissura, senior advisor to Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz and the front-running candidate to be the next Borough President himself. Carlo was on hand to a provide wonderful proclamation recognizing the “positive impact of this new Rapid Realty franchise on the Clinton Hill community and to the fabric of Brooklyn as a whole.”
It’s was exciting to have so many people attend this great event–not just our team, but to see a lot of the people from the community and local business owners and landlords show us support, it really means a lot.” says Anthony Lolli, CEO of Rapid Realty.
After the ribbon cutting and champagne toast, everyone moved down the road to the newly opened Brooklyn Tap House and partied the night away in style, celebrating this milestone.
“There’s a lot of buzz and hype about the company right now and the event created a lot of franchise fever as there were over a dozen people who approached us about opening their own Rapid Realty franchise.”
This new office in Clinton Hill North is in a prime location to serve one of the most vibrant and active rental neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Clinton Hill is an area that’s on everybody’s list of neighborhoods to watch – with its mix of classic brownstones and beautiful new developments, it’s an area that is attracting everyone from college students to families.
Ernest Hill and Paul Perez know the area like the back of their hand. As real estate agents, they have been serving the Clinton Hill community for years, and joining forces on this Rapid Realty franchise will enable them to do that in a whole new way and to pass their knowledge onto a new staff of agents who will become experts on the neighborhood as well, enabling them to better serve apartment hunters.
While Rapid Realty has offices in all five boroughs of New York City, including Long Island, and even a location in New Jersey, it’s always particularly special when they can expand further in Brooklyn, where it all began.
