A New ERA in Real Estate!

I’d like to share some exciting news. Restaino & Associates has joined the Realogy group, and more specifically, the ERA Powered family.

ERA is quite different from other franchises, by offering a Powered By option, Restaino & Associates gains the ability to leverage the power and technology of a national brand, while keeping our familiar community presence, identity, and autonomy. There are only 13 ERA Powered companies in the country at this time, and we are proud to be in their exclusive club. 

Restaino & Associates did not sell the company, or any part of it. Decisions will continue to be made right here in Madison, and our brand identity and corporate culture will not change.  All franchise fees charged by ERA are being absorbed by our brokerage and will not be passed on to Restaino & Associates agents.

I’m incredibly excited about the growth opportunities this affiliation will provide to the company and the real estate business in Madison.

I look forward to continuing to work with all of you in the years ahead.

June/July Home Sales

As expected it was a busy summer in the Real Estate market.  There was a slight down turn near the 4th of July that continued until just after Labor Day.  In recent weeks, we've seen a slight uptick which is pretty common.  Here is what sold in late June and early July on the west side of Madison.
