Residential Properties Ltd. is proud to announce the opening of a new office at 376 Broadway on the West Side of Providence, as well as the addition of four experienced Realtors® in Jane Driver, Joe Roch, Kevin Darrow, and Joe Elliott.
Since opening its first office in 1981, Residential Properties Ltd. has quickly grown to become Rhode Island’s largest independent real estate brokerage. Today, the company is comprised of over 180 agents and now has a total of six office locations.
“It has been a dream of mine for years to expand to the West Side of Providence,” remarks RPL President and CEO, Sally Lapides. “It is an area filled with fabulous architecture, delicious restaurants, and hip people.”
To staff the new office, RPL has hired four experienced Realtor’s with extensive knowledge of the local area.
“Jane Driver, Joe Roch, Kevin Darrow, and Joe Elliott have deep roots in the community,” explains Lapides. “They live there and have worked there for years. Our professional real estate advisors, as well as our marketing, are what differentiate us. I look forward to many years of working alongside them and engaging with the community.”
When asking the agents about their recent transition, Joe Roch was eager to express his excitement. “It’s an incredible honor, not only to join Residential Properties, but to also be opening up a brand new office in my home market on the West Side of Providence,” says Roch. “I’m even more thrilled to be making this move with my dear friends and colleagues.”
Among those friends and colleagues is Realtor® Kevin Darrow, who shared Roch’s enthusiasm for the new office. “There’s so much untapped potential across 1-95,” Darrow explains. “I think the committed presence of Residential Properties in that part of town (MY part of town!) will help encourage the already burgeoning growth and development from Broadway to the Armory to Elmwood to Roger Williams Park.”
Darrow went on to say that he is “super excited about all the resources that Residential Properties offers its sales agents, including access to top notch photographers, home staging, and marketing, not to mention relocation services, referral services, and an army of super helpful and knowledgeable administrative staff.”
