RPL Welcomes Team Applegate

Residential Properties Ltd is excited to announce the formation of Team Applegate. The team is made up of Broker Associate Holly Applegate, and her husband Sales Associate Bill Applegate.

Holly Applegate originally became an agent in 1991, but four years later became Manager of RPL’s Cumberland office and accomplished so much in her 24 years there. Under Holly’s care, the Cumberland office blossomed and under her tutelage, a culture of talented and loyal agents bloomed.

“I had the daunting challenge of re-building the office. I was the only agent when I took on the task. I started by myself, listed and sold properties, and then hired the best agents I could find. I feel very proud of what I accomplished by building a vibrant office with incredibly talented, successful, and loyal agents. The Cumberland office is in a good place for me to step down.”

As a Manager, Holly was afforded a deep knowledge of today’s real estate world from helping the agents in her office.

Prior to becoming an agent Bill Applegate primarily worked in the sales of higher technology products and systems. Bill sold to a diverse clientele across the globe, which Bill states taught him the value of listening and understanding and that “You can educate and be educated at the same time.”

Bill also previously worked at RPL as part of our award-winning Marketing and Technology Department where he observed the success of various agents and learned more valuable lessons. “My biggest takeaway from all this was that Real Estate is more than the properties for sale.  The people involved – agents, sellers, buyers, and the myriad of folks doing mortgages, appraisals, inspections, etc. – are the important elements which deserve your undivided attention.”

Team Applegate will be members of our Providence office. When asked why Providence instead of Cumberland, where Holly has been for nearly a quarter century, Holly stated:

“Bill and I raised our family in Cumberland, but always had strong roots to the East Side through our ties to Lincoln School, Brown, RISD, and The Players at Barker Playhouse. We moved to the historic Benefit Street in June of 2006 and now are only a walk away from the office! Another special reason for working in the Providence office is because my mother, Patricia Blackall, a beloved real estate broker, worked there for many years.”

The husband and wife team are celebrating their 44th anniversary this year and say the opportunity to work together was a driving force in their decision to create this team. Both expressed their respect for each other and that their strengths complement each other perfectly.

The goals of the team are to strengthen their bonds with the community and build new relationships that strengthen their outreach and better support the real estate market. Team Applegate is excited to help you realize your dreams and want to let you know that:

“We are committed to listening and offering the highest level of service, the latest marketing tools provided by our company, and exceeding your expectations. We measure our success through your success.”

Residential Properties Ltd is proud to announce that at the recent Northern RI Board of REALTORS®, Inc. meeting Sales Associate Robert Williamson, of the Antrop and Williamson team, was bestowed several honors. Robert was sworn in as Treasurer of the NRIBR and was also surprised with a presentation for Rookie of the Year Award.

IMG_9563The Rookie of the Year Award is “Presented to an NRIBR member, of 5 years or less, who has demonstrated true REALTOR® spirit, good REALTOR® ethics, participated in the board, and who demonstrates promise for future Board leadership.”

Robert Williamson was surprised to be named Rookie of the Year and stated, “It was an honor to win the award, which was last given out to my teammate Ryan Antrop in 2011.” Robert Williamson continued to speak about the criteria for the award saying that, “I make a commitment to practice good realtor ethics on a daily basis.  That is the part of the award that I pride myself in the most. Since becoming a Realtor I have strived to do things the right way and always have a determination to learn as much as possible about the job.”

Speaking on being sworn in as Treasurer, Robert spoke of what an honor it was and how he is proud of his ascension through the ranks after being named Corporate Secretary last year. Looking towards the future, Robert looks forward to utilizing his previous experience as a financial accountant to “ensure that the board is fiscally responsible and grows accordingly.”

The NRIBR is a professional trade association which provides professional training and resources to it members across Pawtucket, Woonsocket, North Smithfield, Lincoln and the rest of Northern Rhode Island. They are active in their community and provide charitable donations and time. Robert states he knew he wanted to be a member as soon as he became a real estate agent in 2013. Since completing that goal, Robert has been a member of multiple boards, including the Scholarship Committee and the Board of Directors.

When asked about the importance of the board and how it has affected him and how it can affect others Robert said, “Through my participation with the board I have had the pleasure of meeting and working side by side with many other experienced realtors.  I have gained a better understanding of what the responsibilities of a Realtor are, and I have acquired valuable knowledge from my colleagues. I would recommend that all members of the board get involved in a committee that they are passionate about.”
