About Holly B. Applegate

Holly started in the real estate business in 1991. She followed in the footsteps of her mother, Patricia Blackall who was in real estate for 30 plus years on the East Side. She was Manager of the Cumberland Office of Residential Properties for 24 years. She decided to step down as Manager in 2019 to embark on this new partnership in real estate with her husband, Bill. After working together since the beginning of January 2019, they decided to add their daughter, Brecken Schneider to their team in August 2019. With Holly’s experience in real estate and Bill’s years in high tech and real estate marketing and Brecken’s extensive background in psychology and in insurance, she feels their different work experiences and close relationship will enable them to work well together. Holly is committed to the importance of listening, being proactive, responding to requests, and finding creative solutions to represent buyers and sellers in one of the most important lifetime decisions.

Holly raised their family in Cumberland, but moved to Historic Benefit Street on the East Side in 2006. This history provides a strong knowledge of the housing market in Northern RI, nearby Mass, and the greater Providence areas.

Holly takes pride in her creativity in helping a seller re-create the essence of his or her home with staging and that special touch to help tell a story to a new buyer. She brings attention to detail, enthusiasm and passion for her business, and quick responsiveness to make things happen. Holly is passionate about giving back to her community with her continued involvement at The Players at Barker Playhouse, The Barker Foundation, The Providence Preservation Society, The Providence Art Club, The Colonial Dames of RI, The Handicraft Club, Year-Up, The Providence Rotary Club. and The Mile of History Association. Holly is also committed to giving grants to non-profit organizations through their Applegate Fund of The RI Foundation. Holly is also a trained vocalist who has been in many musical productions over the years at The Players. One of Holly’s favorite hobbies is floral design. She enjoys decorating her Red Door on Benefit Street.
