SARASOTA, FL — RE/MAX Alliance Group, which maintains seven offices in Sarasota, Manatee and Charlotte counties, has expanded into Hillsborough and Pinellas counties through a merger with RE/MAX Bay to Bay.
Seventy-five associates in all four RE/MAX Bay to Bay offices will become part of the RE/MAX Alliance Group family, for a total of about 350 associates and combined 2018 production of almost $1.4 billion and approximately 4,700 transactions.
“A lot of exciting growth is happening throughout the Tampa Bay area,” said RE/MAX Alliance Group Broker and Co-Owner Peter Crowley. “The boundaries between the Tampa Bay and the Bradenton/Sarasota markets are continuing to blur. We see this move as a natural extension of the area that we serve.”
RE/MAX Bay to Bay’s four offices are located in North Tampa, South Tampa, Tarpon Springs and Riverview.
James Ramos, Broker-Owner of RE/MAX Bay to Bay, will be a partner and continue to operate his other businesses as well as lead the Ramos Professionals Group team at RE/MAX Alliance Group. He will also serve in a consulting capacity in future acquisition opportunities if they arise.
“RE/MAX Alliance Group shares the values and standards that we at RE/MAX Bay to Bay have always strived to achieve,” said Ramos. “The merger brings added resources and support to our agents such as an in-house marketing department and in-house legal counsel, allowing us to serve our customers at an even higher level.”
Ron Travis, Co-Owner of RE/MAX Alliance Group, added, “The culture of professionalism at RE/MAX Bay to Bay was a natural fit with the RE/MAX Alliance Group culture. As the number one RE/MAX office in Florida, we are excited to strengthen that position with the addition of the RE/MAX Bay to Bay agents and staff. We will further strengthen the RE/MAX brand presence in both counties with a commitment to grow with only quality agents. RE/MAX Alliance Group has always focused on quality over quantity when it comes to recruiting new agents to the company.”
RE/MAX Alliance Group is the #1 RE/MAX franchise in Florida and the #15 RE/MAX franchise in the United States. It is the #1 office in Florida for contributions to the Children’s Miracle Network. The company now offers residential and commercial real estate solutions throughout Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, Hillsborough and Pinellas counties.
