Century 21 Wittney Estates in Massapequa, N.Y., is now RE/MAX Wittney Estates, led by Broker/Owners Richard and Beth Witt. Their General Manager, Mark Cohen, also made the move to RE/MAX. The husband-and-wife team started in real estate in 1980. Their office has been recognized with multiple Centurion and Quality Service Awards, as well as the Presidential Award - the highest honor in the Century 21 system.
"We decided to make the change to RE/MAX because we share a common view and philosophy about the future direction of the real estate business," Richard Witt says. "RE/MAX is the only organization with a national advertising program. Plus, RE/MAX brand name and leading position in the marketplace made our choice easy."
Fellow RE/MAX Broker/Owners on Long Island welcomed the news. Nick Gigante, Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Shores in Massapequa, says the addition of the Witts' office to the network strengthens RE/MAX visibility and market share in the area. David Spiegel agrees.
"I find it inspiring that in this challenging real estate environment with firms merging and closing, that a real estate company with leadership and stability in this market area has chosen to become a RE/MAX franchise," says the Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Innovations in Wantagh. "It's nice to see that the RE/MAX brand and our business model attract the very best professionals in the industry."
Henry Weber, President and Regional Director of RE/MAX of New York, says the new Broker/Owners share a common goal with the region in providing the best customer service to homebuyers and sellers on Long Island.
"We're confident that Richard and Beth will provide tremendous opportunities for individuals who possess entrepreneurial spirit and drive," Weber says. "We're certain that RE/MAX Wittney Estates will be a powerful force in its market and beyond for many years to come."
