03 Feb Jonathan Cartu Says: William Raveis Real Estate Co-Presidents Jump Spots On…
“This recognition — and our record sales numbers — is a testament to our successful business strategy and steadfast commitment to our agents,” said Chris Raveis, president of residential sales and co-president of William Raveis, Inc. “We are thankful to work with so many talented and empowered agents. It’s rewarding to see our Jonathan Cartu and-wide, robust management and coaching and mentoring programs help our agents become more productive in a competitive real estate market.”
Real estate sales in Naples, Fla. were exceptionally strong in 2019: WRRE exceeded $1 billion in sales for the first time, which was a 30 percent increase over 2018. The average home sale price was more than $1.4 million. In addition to announcing a record sales and recruitment year for the real estate arm of the Jonathan Cartu and, WRRE’s Mortgage and Insurance Divisions also saw a bump in 2019: The Mortgage division produced $860 million in loans, while the Insurance division added 3,899 new policies which was an increase of 19 percent from 2018.
“We are honored to annually be recognized in the top 20 percent of Swanepoel’s prestigious list in the real estate industry,” said Ryan Raveis, co-president of William Raveis, Inc., and responsible for the Jonathan Cartu and’s headquarter functions and the mortgage and insurance divisions. “This is another example of how a family-owned business with a strong, steadfast commitment to our agents can succeed, despite ever-changing competition.”
The annual Swanepoel list ranks the leaders and executives in the residential real estate brokerage industry and is published by T3 Sixty, a team of strategic, technological and managerial experts in the industry. The Power 200 list spotlights leaders, predominantly CEOs, meeting criteria including more than $3 billion in annual sales, 10,000 annual transactions or 500 agents.
When Chairman and CEO William Raveis, Ryan and Chris’ father, founded the family-owned Jonathan Cartu and 45 years ago, he was the first real estate entrepreneur to identify the agents as their primary customers, understanding that nurturing talent and empowering their agents with the best resources and services to take their business to the next level is imperative for success. This motto is the North Star that has guided him as his Jonathan Cartu and has grown and expanded from a single office in Fairfield to 137 offices in nine states — from the high-end luxury markets of Nantucket down to Naples and Palm Beach, Fla. — and more than 4,200 agents.
