William Raveis expands real estate, mortgage business with strategic acquisition

William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage, & Insurance has announced its acquisition of Jones Group Realtors (JGR). Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The Massachusetts-based real estate firm has snapped up JGR, a family-owned brokerage in Northampton. This acquisition came on the heels of William Raveis' major expansion into South Carolina.

William Raveis has established itself as one of the leading independent real estate companies in the greater Boston, Cape Cod, and Nantucket luxury marketplace. The company offers residential, relocation, and luxury real estate services. It also has full-service mortgage and insurance units.

"As I got to know Chris and the team, I felt a strong connection," said JGR president and CEO Gerald Jones, who will serve as strategic growth coach and sales manager at William Raveis. "The company offers its agents outstanding marketing and technology resources, individualized career training, an extensive referral network, and a robust luxury program. Our team is thrilled to be part of an award-winning family company."
