William Raveis is the place where agents go to GROW their business. If you do what you love, you'll never have to work a day in your life. Why not consider joining our team?

This position allows me to leverage my knowledge of real estate sales, analysis of market data, career development and training experience in both the real estate and financial services industry.

As a Sales Manager, the agents are my customers. This isn't a tag line, it's a commitment to an "agent-centric" culture throughout our company. Simply put, it is my main priority to provide an atmosphere of team collaboration, business planning and professional coaching; and most importantly a fun and positive workplace!
