“This is an amazing moment for all of us as we’ve grown our office through some of the hardest economic years of our lifetimes,” said Amy Lessinger, RRA broker/owner. “As one of the most recognized RE/MAX offices in the country, it is the dedication of the agents who have helped us achieve a larger share of the market in addition to a higher standard of success for our clients. The opportunities that are ahead for the agents of RE/MAX Realty Affiliates are limitless.”
“I am so excited to welcome the Reno RE/MAX Realty Affiliates agents to the RE/MAX Gold family and to be adding northern Nevada to our network,” said James O’Bryon, CEO of RE/MAX Gold.
Craig Boltman, Managing Broker of the Reno office, will take over as Broker of Record and work alongside the incredible leadership team and staff already in place at RRA to ensure a seamless transition. John Fisher and Phil Reith will continue to oversee the daily operations of the Gardnerville and Carson City offices, respectively.
