Associates keep more money in their pockets and that translates to the consumer. They benefit because the associates are reinvesting that money into their marketing. They get to use it for their own lead generation and marketing for their clients and the clients love it,” deTonnancourt said in a statement.
Warwick Mayor Scott Avedisian said, “I am very proud to welcome the first HomeSmart Professsionals Real Estate office on the East Coast to Warwick. This is yet another great first for our city. With 39 miles of coastline, a vibrant business community and our close-knit neighborhoods, Warwick is the perfect place for a real estate office to open its doors.”
