William Raveis Real Estate acquired Sarasota, Fla.-based Key Solutions Real Estate, a luxury and family-owned brokerage with 44 associates.
The addition of two offices in Sarasota brings the total number of William Raveis offices in Florida to 14. Since opening its Naples office in 2016 and then expanding to Palm Beach in 2018, the company is on track to close more than $3 billion in sales in the Sunshine State, according to a press release. The acquisition broadens William Raveis’ network from areas in the Northeast, including Nantucket, Wellesley, Greenwich, Westchester and Manhattan.
“Florida is hot in more ways than one,” founder, Chairman and CEO Bill Raveis said in the release. “As more and more people from the Northeast buy primary or vacation homes in Florida, we plan to expand throughout Florida for many years, further strengthening our luxury network.”
Susan Saltalamacchia, who along with her son, Brian Tresidder, and close family friend, Keith Redding, spent a decade building Key Solutions. Saltalamacchia will continue working as a broker for the two Sarasota offices.
“When we were approached to join William Raveis Real Estate, we knew it was a perfect fit,” Saltalamacchia said in the same release. “Their company and leadership team have the same values we embrace in our offices and their focus on agent success and training to improve the customer experience is second to none. We knew this was a company we wanted to be working with, and not against.”
