A real estate firm continues to grow in Brooklyn.
Serving Brooklyn’s diverse real estate market for 50 years, Fillmore Real Estate has joined the Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), a move that will make the real estate company – already one of the borough’s largest residential and commercial firms – even bigger.
“We joined with REBNY [and now] we can take advantage of the network of brokers that exists and open up more inventory for our sales agents to sell,” said President and CEO of Fillmore Real Estate John Reinhardt. “Their professionalism and code of ethics and standards are all praiseworthy and we look forward to Fillmore agents attending the REBNY education courses and taking advantage of the benefits that that’ll offer.
“It opens up our market place and is an important next step forward,” he continued, “and a perfect fit for our company.”
The move will allow the firm’s 300 agents to take advantage of REBNY’s access to broker exclusives, Residential Listing Services (RLS), research and free Legal Line, continuing educational courses, seminars, networking opportunities, specialized certifications and awards, among other REBNY member benefits.
“We are delighted to welcome Fillmore Real Estate as new members of REBNY,” said REBNY President John Banks III. “We trust that this is the start of a long and mutually beneficial relationship that will help advance the interests of Fillmore agents, other REBNY members and most importantly, the consumer. When we all work together, everyone wins.”
The announcement was celebrated with a special reception at Gargiulo’s Restaurant, 2911 West 15th Street, on Thursday, February 11.
REBNY now boasts an impressive 17,000 members and represents major commercial and residential property owners and builders; brokers and managers; banks; financial service companies; attorneys; architects and contractors throughout the city.
The board was originally established as the Real Estate Board of Brokers of the City of New York in 1896. At the time, the board’s 27 members met every Tuesday on Liberty Street in Manhattan.
