Update: Roaming Shores Grand Opening


This Friday, July 6, 2018, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Professional Realty- Roaming Shores office will celebrate its grand opening to the public. The expansion of BHHS Professional Realty in Roaming Shores is an exciting opportunity for the brokerage to support top local agents who have served the lake community in their buying and selling needs for over ten years.

As mentioned in our last Roaming Shores feature (read below), our brokerage is the first in the area with direct water access for our agents to utilize. You cannot miss this gorgeous new space located right on the marina. Watch below for a tour of the office interior:

The office's lake inspired look and feel will make potential clients right at home during their time with our agents. Join us in this beautiful space at 1 Marina Drive, Suite 2 Roaming Shores, Ohio 44084 tomorrow at 4pm. All are welcome!

Inquiries regarding the opening of the new Roaming Shores office should be directed to Regional Manager, Bruce Schlosser. Schlosser may be contacted via email at bschlosser@bhhspro.com.

It’s home to full-time residents and vacation homes alike, jet skis, sailboats and a very prevalent community atmosphere. Roaming Shores will also be home to one of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Professional Realty 30 locations this week.

The brokerage’s new office space is its first in Roaming Shores to have direct water access to the marina. This water access gives agents an advantage over competing brokerages located on surrounding property in Roaming Shores. The business plan for the office also features a boat docked in the marina for agents to show houses from the waterside. The boat will allow clients to tour the lake with full-time BHHS Professional Realty agents as well as full-time Roaming Shores residents that includes Ratican and Gregory.

Regional Manager Bruce Schlosser will oversee the Roaming Shores location. Schlosser will build onto the strong foundation the brokerage holds in the market with 24% of closed market share this past year. Heading into the remainder of 2018, Schlosser anticipates the opening of this office to drive that number up to 30% with the expertise of top local agents joining the new office.

Agents Bob Gregory and Ed Ratican are among the agents who will build upon the presence of the BHHS Professional Realty brokerage in the Ashtabula area. The pair are full-time residents with a strong commitment to the community. We are confident these agents will prosper when provided the tools and systems we have to offer them.

“With an active presence on the water we will be exposed to more activity from homeowners looking to buy or sell. The location of the new office space on the marina better ensures that the brokerage will be visible to potential buyers who come to the lake for a day trip seeking the expertise of an agent,” said Bob.

Bob has watched the market in Roaming Shores transition from being a full-time residential area to a second home vacation market. He supports the community by attending the Village Council and RomeRock Homeowner’s Association meetings. Bob built trusted relationships with full-time Roaming Shores residents and he was voted as the association’s past President. The personal interest and time he has put into the community is unparalleled amongst competing agents. His community involvement as a full-time resident has allowed him to respond promptly to client’s needs and share his expertise in the Village of Roaming Shores.

Ed has grown his business alongside Bob by investing in relationships with clients in the community. His presence in Roaming Shores has heavily influenced the high level of trust clients put into the buying and selling experience he delivers. The trusted relationships he has built in the community have helped him seize a larger portion of the market than competitors.

“Our goal is always to help agents grow their business by providing the highest level of client satisfaction.  Our agents have successfully serviced clients in the Roaming Shores market with a remote office location. Therefore, we are confident they will achieve greater success and a higher level of customer service with a local office. The tools and systems our brokerage and the international Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand provides them will heavily contribute to their success,” said Managing Partner/Broker, David Mussari.

One of the brokerage’s Jefferson affiliated agents, Tina Sirrine, will also be joining the team in Roaming Shores. The Roaming Shores office is looking to expand with agents who will further build upon and grow the brokerage’s dominant position of the market share in this community.
