Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Experiences Double-Digit Gains in 2016

Providence, RI (February 22, 2017) – Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty exhibited double-digit gains over the last year resulting in a six-position jump for Residential Real Estate Agencies in the 2017 Providence Business News Book of Lists.  Moving up in rank from #22 to #16, Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty experienced a 151% increase in units sold as well as a 37.5% increase in value of residences sold from 2015 to 2016.  Overall, Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty was involved in 25% of the top 20 sales statewide in 2016, participating in six and representing more clients than any other firm based on transaction sides. 

“It’s a distinguishing quality of our operation that so many make the decision to list or buy with this firm,” comments Ray Mott, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty. “It’s a deliberate choice to work with a brand that is time-honored and valued. In my opinion, the numbers from the past year set us apart as the most trusted brand in Rhode Island real estate.” 

The firm closed on a number of significant sales in 2016 including the highest sales in Narragansett, Little Compton, Warwick, Downtown Providence, Exeter and Lincoln.

A solid, contributing factor to this marked growth was the acquisition of Coleman Realtors in July doubling the number of agents and gaining additional offices in Barrington and East Greenwich. Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty intends to further their success in 2017 with the expansion of the Narragansett office and the addition of a number of high-caliber agents.

“We will continue to be creative, innovative and, above all, maintain our legacy of teamwork and family,” said Judy Chace, Broker/Co-Owner of Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty.  “The goal is to consistently grow and expand the services we can offer our agents and clients. The power of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand, our exceptional agents and desire to be modern and forthcoming in the real estate market are truly what set us apart and I believe Rhode Island is getting to know us better every day.”
