Real opens for business in Delaware and bolsters its presence in D.C. and Maryland with the addition of two high-performing teams
TORONTO & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$REAX #therealbrokerage–The Real Brokerage Inc. (TSX: REAX) (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing publicly traded real estate brokerage, today announced its launch of operations in Delaware. It also announced the addition of Garner & Co. and Kilner & Kirk Group, two top-producing teams serving Baltimore and the D.C. region, that bring a combined 29 agents to Real.
The expansion into Delaware gives the Company a presence throughout the Eastern Seaboard. Real estate broker Ray Petkevis will represent the Company as its Principal Broker in Delaware.
“Delaware is a natural bridge between our presence in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and the D.C. region, and allows our existing agents to better serve their clients as they explore their homeownership opportunities,” said Real Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tamir Poleg. “We’re thrilled to continue our expansion in the Mid-Atlantic through our launch in Delaware and the addition of Garner & Co. and Kilner & Kirk Group. Both are top-producing teams that significantly increase our presence in the region.”
Ranked among the top producing teams serving Baltimore, Garner & Co., joins Real from Side. Led by veteran real estate agent Ben Garner, Real Trends has consistently ranked the team among the Top 10 in the state of Maryland. The 20-member team closed more than 275 real estate transactions valued at over $100 million in 2022.
“Our primary objective is to allow our team members to take their careers to the next level,” Garner said. “Real provides an excellent environment for growth and development, including a supportive community of like-minded professionals, training opportunities and top-of-the-line technology.”
Kilner & Kirk joins Real from Real Living @Properties. Led by Patrick Kilner and John Kirk, the nine-agent team serves the D.C. metropolitan area, including Maryland and Northern Virginia. In 2022, Kilner & Kirk team closed approximately 100 transactions totaling $80 million in sales.
“Current brokerage models are not sustainable. A brand like Real not only understands teams, but they are cutting off a lot of the fat that traditional brokerage firms are saddled with,” Kilner, a 19-year industry veteran, said. “We’ve operated virtually and relied on technology to increase productivity for the past decade. That, combined with the ability to offer our team equity, confirmed Real was the right choice for us.”
