“We understand the process of securing top-tier housing for tenants and quality tenancies for upper-end landlords,” adds Ben Guglielmi, Leasing Specialist of The Blackstone Team. “Through existing marketing channels, long-time relationships, and proven vetting skills, we are the experts you want in your corner.

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty Announces The Blackstone Team

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is excited to introduce The Blackstone Team, a new class of real estate team bringing together the talents of agents Nelson Taylor and Robert Rutley. Formerly known as Taylor & Associates,The Blackstone Team includes Nelson Taylor, maintaining his role as Managing Partner; Robert Rutley, newly appointed Partner; Robin Lake, Client Coordinator; Benjamin Kean, Associate Agent; and introduces Karen Wilder and Ben Guglielmi as Associate Agents. “I am happy to join Nelson in the next evolution of Providence real estate,” Rutley says. “Our combined experience will elevate our high standard of hard work, integrity and honesty. While we are powerful agents in our own rights, this next level of collaboration will give us a greater ability to offer the best service and advice to our clients.”

The Blackstone Team is revolutionizing the team approach to real estate by continuing to expand its collaborative, familial-style business model, including coordination staff, personal marketing funds, support structure, profit sharing, and retirement packages. Additionally, the team is making strides to innovate within the industry by pledging a higher level of fiduciary responsibility; demanding a fair, honest and even marketplace amongst its colleagues; and lobbying for the end of the practice of Dual Facilitation.

“From this moment forward,” Taylor says, “we will not practice Dual Facilitation, the double-ending of real estate transactions.” Dual Facilitation, legal in Rhode Island, is the practice of a single agent assisting both the buyer and seller in a single transaction without representing either party and earning both sides of the commission. “We believe strongly that every client deserves full representation,” Rutley says. “The Blackstone Team will be working with local and national boards of REALTORS to end the practice in Rhode Island and beyond.”

The Blackstone Team will continue to elevate their relationship with the Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty brand. “We look forward to continuing to leverage the world class marketing and presence available to us and our clients,” Taylor says. Rutley adds, “We’ve worked hard to build lasting relationships with the agents within the Sotheby’s International Realty brand regionally, nationally and internationally. Not only are we partners in marketing our properties to more than just the local marketplace, but we know where buyers are coming from and we have relationships in markets around the world.”

“We have taken a pivotal step of turning the me into a we in order to better serve our clients, each other as agents and the communities in which we work,” Rutley says.  About the name, Taylor explains, “Blackstone represents so much in the marketplaces in which we work. It’s the last name of one of our first settlers. It’s become a street, a boulevard, a neighborhood, a school, a historical society, a canal, a river and a valley—just to name a few. Synonymous with community in Rhode Island, Blackstone is a part of our local heritage.”

The Blackstone Team at Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty can be found online at www.the-blackstoneteam.com, by calling 401-214-1524, or in Providence at Waterplace, 100 Exchange Street.

#GiveBackFridays: City Year

City Year Providence deploys 60 highly skilled AmeriCorps members to serve in six schools, positively impacting nearly 5,000 students. Thousands of students in Providence are at risk for dropping out. The consequences are real: Students who drop out are eight times more likely to become incarcerated and three times more likely to be unemployed. When a student drops out of school it has a lasting effect on our communities.

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty has been an active member in the City Year community for several years. In 2018, members of our team visited local Providence elementary schools and painted inspirational quotes on otherwise blank walls around campus. This year, we were invited to participate in the Gingerbread Kit Project.

Sponsored by Dave’s Marketplace, Ellie’s Bakery, Gracie’s, and Miriam Hospital, the Gingerbread Kit Project is designed to produce gingerbread-decorating kits that benefit families in need. All proceeds raised will be donated to families of Pleasant View Elementary School.

Sarah Huard, Sales Associate from our Providence office, has been an active member of City Year since graduating from college. She answered the call and asked for at least 6 volunteers to help. Within minutes, she had a full team of colleagues ready and willing to participate in the baking process.

“City Year is a vibrant part of our community and I try to do as much as possible to stay involved,” says Sarah Huard. “I was happy to join the Gingerbread Project, and delighted when so many of my colleagues and friends were just as enthusiastic and willing to engage.”

Huard, along with Carl Henschel, Doug Bell, Karen Wilder, Nelson Taylor, Ben Kean, and Robin Lake arrived at Ellie’s Bakery at 10AM on Monday morning. With the help of three Ellie’s employees and one City Year liaison, our team baked over 350 cookies in two hours.

Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty agents are passionate about giving back to the community. “The team genuinely wants to help and is proud of making our communities a better place to be”, adds Huard. “City Year’s motto is #MakeBetterHappen, and as I looked around the room, I saw a level of character and unadulterated happiness, and I couldn’t help but to think we were doing just that – making better happen.”
