(Dallas, TX) – United® Real Estate (United) announced today that a partnership between United Real Estate | North Jersey and a New York residential brokerage is expanding United’s service footprint into the Hudson Valley region. The alliance makes more inroads into the East Coast for United where it has improved its foothold with the additions of D.C.-based Pearson Smith Realty in July and Long Island-based United Real Estate | Fortune in August.
The alliance capitalizes on post-COVID outmigration from New York City’s metro area into communities in the Hudson River Valley. The bourgeoning population and number of agents working in the region presents attractive growth opportunities.
Formerly JP Realty Advantage, the Hudson Valley office was born from the partnership forged between Principal Broker, Justin Phillips and United Real Estate | North Jersey Owners, Jeff and Todd Bailey and Anthony Laurita. Phillips will lead the operation moving forward as United Real Estate | Hudson Valley Edge.
“During the pandemic, I made the decision to reestablish my independent brokerage. I soon realized I needed a strong national partner with deeper resources to get me to where I wanted to be from a growth perspective. When I met the United North Jersey owners and learned about United’s offerings and flat-fee agent compensation model, I recognized they had a strong value proposition difficult to compete against,” stated Phillips. “I will have high recruiting and retention rates with United’s attractive agent compensation model, technology, marketing, training and resources — provided at no additional cost to agents or clients.”
“We were looking for the right opportunity to grow our operation into New York, and we found the perfect partner in Justin. His real estate experience, expertise and his enthusiasm for recruiting will benefit us all. By pushing northward from New Jersey into the Hudson Valley, we will collectively expand our service footprint and become a regionally dominant brokerage,” stated United | North Jersey COO and Owner, Jeff Bailey
United Real Estate | Hudson Valley Edge services Dutchess, Ulster, Orange, Westchester, Putnam and Rockland counties and as far east as the Connecticut state line.
“This team is on a path to greatness in the Hudson Valley region,” said United Real Estate President, Rick Haase. “One of our organization’s objectives is to further the growth of our Brokers and their offices with business development support and watching this group’s regional influence expand to serve more clients is very rewarding.”
