Leah Caro, co-owner of Park Sterling Realty, a realty brokerage company serving Westchester and Putnam Counties, has announced the addition of the majority of the sales force of Peter J Riolo Real Estate, a Hastings-On-Hudson firm. Peter J. Riolo Real Estate, a respected firm for more than 70 years recently closed its doors. The co-owner and president, Peter J. Riolo, Jr., the office manager, Sharlene Forman, and the majority of their sales force have associated with Park Sterling Realty.
Park Sterling, with its main office in Bronxville Village, has had a positive and productive relationship with the Peter J. Riolo Real Estate office in Hastings for over 30 years. Both offices were founding members of the Westchester Real Estate, Inc. consortium. The high ethical standards and fostering office environment offered by both offices made this new association an easy transition.
Working closely together was a natural fit. Park Sterling Realty (formerly known as Bronxville Real Estate) has been an independent company since its inception in 1990, fostering an environment of the highest ethical standards with a focus on teamwork, professionalism and exceptional client services. “Putting People First” isn’t just a motto, it’s Park Sterling Realty’s way of life—for agents and for clients, according to Caro.
The new river-town based sales associates will continue to bring a high-touch client experience, along with a high-tech toolbox of marketing products to Hastings, Dobbs Ferry, Ardsley, Irvington, Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow, Northwest Yonkers and beyond.
President and Principal Broker Leah Caro has been a friend of, and close colleague to, Kumiko Buller, Sharlene Forman, Alberto Hernandez, Marilyn Hirsch, Deborah McNerney, Laureen Paul, Lauchlan Paul, Susan Slattery, Ravi Wadera, and of course Peter Riolo Jr, himself. She is delighted to include these successful real estate pros in her company, and looks forward to continuing to bring the best service to the Hastings and Rivertown markets.
When asked about further expansion, Caro said she and partner Jon Posner are examining another opportunity in Northern Westchester.
Jon Posner, a 45 year veteran of real estate, was owner of Preferred Realty Inc, a 95 agent brokerage firm that was sold to Houlihan Lawrence in 2004. Houlihan Lawrence was subsequently sold to HomeServices of America in 2017.
