Residential Properties Ltd. is proud to announce the addition of Sales Associate Michael J. Sweeney as a member of its Providence office, where he will join RPL Sales Associate Kira Greene to launch the Greene | Sweeney Team.
“I am thrilled to announce the new partnership of Kira Greene and Michael Sweeney,” says RPL President & CEO Sally Lapides. “Individually, each is an extraordinary real estate professional. Together, they will bring their expertise, experience and energy to another of Residential Properties Ltd.’s successful partnerships.”
Growing up on the East Side of Providence, Sweeney got his first real estate itch at the young age of just 11 years old when he accompanied his mother and father to an open house. After attending Wheeler School and La Salle Academy, Sweeney went on to graduate from the University of Rhode Island. Following three years of working in New York, he made the decision to return to Rhode Island and follow his passion for real estate full-time. This past year, he exceeded $10 million in sales, earning the 2017 Circle of Sales Excellence Gold Award.
“If I could dream up the perfect business partner, I couldn’t do better than Michael Sweeney,” explains Kira Greene. “Michael is a genuinely exceptional human being, with real estate superpowers. I know if he were to see a client in my place, I would get a call raving about how stellar he is at his job and what a joy it was to work with him.”
When asked about his decision to join RPL, Sweeney was quick to point out his admiration for Kira Greene as well. “One of the biggest reasons I chose to come to Residential Properties was the fact that I knew I was going to be starting something unique, fresh and brilliant when it came to teaming with an agent I respect and admire. Kira has been someone I have loved working with, someone who’s approach to representing her clients has inspired me to be a better agent, and someone who’s work ethic is unparalleled – which is something I admire very much.”
A native New Yorker, Kira Greene moved to Providence in 1997. Her professional background in advertising, interactive marketing and sales, and client account management allowed her to make a successful transition into real estate. Today, she has earned numerous awards and honors, compiling over $20 million in sales last year while earning the 2017 Circle of Sales Excellence Platinum Award and being named to Real Trends’ list of “America’s Best Real Estate Professionals.”
Despite achieving so much success on their own, both Greene and Sweeney understand the advantages of working as part of a team.
“As partners, we can provide our clients with 24/7 accessibility to the highest level of service in our industry,” explains Sweeney. “Greene | Sweeney is something I feel will benefit any buyer or seller because of our complete synchrony in understanding and truly caring for our clients from the beginning to the end of the transaction, and even after – making this sometimes difficult process fun and comfortable throughout every step.”
Residential Properties Ltd. recently completed the sale of 420 Cole Avenue for $1,550,000 – marking the second highest sale on the East Side of Providence this year.

Set in the desirable Blackstone neighborhood, this property presented a rare opportunity to purchase a brand new custom built home on the historic East Side of Providence. The rich millwork, crown molding, and gorgeous hardwood floors throughout the interior create an heirloom property to be admired for generations.
The listing agent, Jim DeRentis, was a recipient of the 2017 Circle of Sales Excellence Platinum Plus Award, and has been included on Real Trends’ list of “America’s Top Real Estate Agents”. To learn more about DeRentis and view his current listings, please visit ThePVDRealEstateGuy.com.
