After completing a lengthy application process and surpassing a strict set of standards, Residential Properties Ltd. has been awarded the prestigious RELO® Quality Certification by Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®. The RELO® Quality Certification (RQC) was the first program in the relocation industry to quantify and qualify what true relocation service excellence means. Modeled after the Malcolm Baldrige national quality award, it was created by the network to provide measurable standards for the pursuit of relocation excellence.
Under the guidance of Corporate and Relocation Services Vice President, Elizabeth Messier, Residential Properties Ltd. earned the certification only after its relocation department met stringent standards and completed a rigorous and lengthy application process, overseen by a committee of leading industry professionals. Virtually every aspect of the company’s relocation operation was reviewed thoroughly, using specific criteria to evaluate performance and production, staffing, training and continuing education, quality and scope of relocation service, program marketing, customer satisfaction, technology resources, office facilities, and more.
After earning the certification, a company must complete a recertification process every five years to ensure it continues to meet the program’s rigorous standards and remains current in terms of technology, relocation trends and other relevant areas.
“Relocating to a new area can be extremely stressful for an individual or family,” explains Messier. “Having a trained relocation specialist help them navigate this transition can make all the difference. We’re not just selling them a house, but concentrating on helping find the right community and experience suited to the lifestyle they are searching for. We pride ourselves on being here for them before, during and after their move.”
Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® President/CEO Paul Boomsma commends Residential Properties Ltd. for its focus on excellence in relocation. “The RQC is awarded only to the industry’s most highly respected relocation departments,” Boomsma commented. “RQC firms have distinguished themselves by demonstrating real expertise in addressing employee mobility and talent management needs, and it is a true pleasure to welcome Residential Properties to this elite group of companies.”

Could you explain a little about the path that led you to RPL?
I moved to Providence in 2013 from the Seattle area with our two children for my husband’s engineering career. I have an art and design background, and had been working throughout Washington State developing a public arts program. My experience with economic development and teaching in the arts is a tremendous help in real estate; as my approach is both information-driven, and hands-on. I began my real estate career upon moving to Rhode Island, and I could not be happier! This has been a fantastic career switch for me; and I feel lucky to spend my time with people making such important life choices, like buying-and-selling a home.
How do you feel this move will positively impact your career?
I began my real estate career as part of a successful team, and that business model accelerated my learning curve tremendously. My transfer to Residential Properties as an individual agent will expedite that growth as this company continues to lead the Rhode Island real estate industry. I am thrilled to bring my unique, client-centered approach to the growing real estate market through the Residential Properties office – it’s a great fit for both the company and myself!
What was it that made you want to join this company?
I decided to make this move because my interactions with other RPL agents in the field have shown me that this company dedicates maximum effort to their clients, and to maintaining their success as Rhode Island’s leading brokerage office. I want to be a part of a company that has their eye on the future of Rhode Island real estate and sets their goals accordingly.
What are you excited about most going forward?
The training and support which Residential Properties offers its agents is truly superior. I am looking forward to improving my best-practices while working with a company which values my experience and opinions as a business person, working mother, and creative-minded person.
What are some things you would like to accomplish as a member of Residential Properties?
As a West-Coast transplant, I have found many wonderful communities throughout the state which aren’t often highlighted. I intend to bring my fresh perspective and sense of discovery to the company, and be able to better connect with the evolving home-buyer profile. I love taking clients out to tour neighborhoods and towns they had not heard of or considered before. There is real satisfaction for me in helping my clients be as informed about their options as they can be during the discovery process, and helping them represent their home or neighborhood.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us regarding your recent move, our company, or the real estate industry in general?
This is such an exciting time to be a part of the real estate industry, especially for buyers and sellers! They have access to more information than ever before, and the savvy and competitive nature of the current market means I can help my clients make informed choices while achieving their real estate goals. I feel the most important aspect of my work is to create opportunities for my clients’ success and happiness.
