2018 REAL Trends 500 Image

Residential Properties Ltd., Rhode Island’s leading real estate company, has been announced as a member of the 2018 REAL Trends 500 – an independently verified list of the top 500 most successful real estate companies in the entire nation. This marks the sixth year in a row that RPL has earned a spot on this prestigious rankings list.

During 2017, RPL ranked #1 in Rhode Island for a third consecutive year in both homes sold (1,852) and overall sales volume ($794,854,526) in the Providence Business News Book of Lists – compiling over $300,000,000 more in sales than the next closest competitor for a second straight year.

With this level of production, Residential Properties Ltd. appeared on the 2018 REAL Trends 500 ranked #347 in the entire country for overall sales volume.

According to a research report produced by REAL Trends, this group of the nation’s 500 largest residential real estate brokerage firms closed over 3.2 million residential sales transactions in 2017. These transactions represent approximately one-third of all new and resale transactions completed by brokers during the year, yet the REAL Trends 500 represented less than one-half of one percent of all brokerage firms.

REAL Trends has been recognized as the trusted source of news, analysis, and information on the residential brokerage industry since 1987. This year’s survey represents the most comprehensive collection of data assembled on the leaders of the residential brokerage industry, and all numbers were documented by outside accounting firms.

Rich Epstein_2016 Realtor of the Year

Residential Properties Ltd. is proud to announce that Rich Epstein of our Providence office has been named REALTOR® of the Year by the Greater Providence Board of REALTORS® (GPBOR).

Epstein has been a member of the REALTOR® Association since 2007 and was selected as the Acting President in April 2015 to complete the remainder of the 2015 term for Donna Andrews, the former President and now CEO of GPBOR. Epstein was formally sworn in last October, and was President for 20 months.happyhappyaward

A licensed broker in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Epstein has been with Residential Properties Ltd. since 1999. When President and CEO Sally Lapides recruited Epstein 17 years ago, he explains he “wanted a career where [he] could automate systems and focus on client development as well as work one on one with people.”

Epstein is humbled by this recognition saying, “There are so many excellent agents working out there that I just feel fortunate to be named.”

Epstein credits his success to self motivation, and using technology to help streamline his day. His affiliation with RPL, he says, helps when meeting clients for the first time due to its great reputation. While the reputation gets him through the door, he says it’s up to him to keep the level of service and expertise up to those expectations.

For agents starting out, he advises, “Don’t try to market to the world. Start with who you know and create systems and checklists etc. to get the word out and stay consistent with it. Most of your business is going to come from people you know and their friends [and] family.”
