“I look forward to partnering with Robyn on developing RSIR’s new Bellevue branch and supporting RSIR’s continued growth throughout the region,” said Cal Lyford, Regional Vice President of Membership Sales for Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates, LLC.
BELLEVUE, Wash. (PRWEB) September 12, 2019
Executives of Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) announced today that Robyn Kimura Hsu and Rachel Schindler—a top-producing broker team—have aligned with the fast-growing real estate firm. Hsu also accepted a leadership position as Executive Director of Business Development to support RSIR’s plans for growth within existing and new branch offices. The duo will join a collective of other Founding Members who will play an integral role in establishing the firm’s forthcoming branch office in Bellevue, Washington.
“We are elated that Robyn and Rachel chose our brand to build upon their extraordinary portfolio as top producers in the region,” said Dean Jones, President & CEO of RSIR. “I’ve known and admired Robyn for more than a decade and I am eager for her contributions as we grow in Bellevue and elsewhere. She has grass-roots experience, is widely respected among her peers and has demonstrated market savvy. Our firm and our global network will be well-represented by Robyn as we curate the next evolution of RSIR.”
It’s a homecoming of sorts for Hsu, who was initially licensed with RSIR in 2010 when the firm began real estate operations. Hsu then ventured out on her own and in 2011, she formed a successful partnership with Schindler. Drawing upon more than two decades of sales experience in professional sports marketing and real estate, Hsu understands first-hand the support that individual brokers need from their brokerage and foresees sustained success through RSIR’s business model, tailored marketing and exclusive brand advantages.
“I’m re-aligning with RSIR and I’m excited for what the future will bring,” said Hsu. “I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work in many different brokerage operations over my career. I considered numerous brands and business models before choosing RSIR in order to best serve our clients. Rachel and I will also be building our team as I shift my focus on cultivating the firm’s regional growth.”
RSIR recently expanded their corporate headquarters in Belltown and developed an all-new Belltown branch office, doubled the size of both the Madison Park and Kirkland branch offices, and commenced with the expansion effort to build a regional flagship branch in Downtown Bellevue. The fast-growing firm consistently ranks within the top ten largest real estate brands in the Puget Sound region (according to Trendgraphix research) and currently represents more than $625 million in active listings (not including new construction inventory). In 2019 year-to-date, RSIR agents have captured the most active inventory in total prospective sales volume per broker when compared to their most immediate peer group. RSIR has achieved over $1.1 billion in sales volume in 2019 with another $500 million in pending sales in escrow.
“I look forward to partnering with Robyn on developing RSIR’s new Bellevue branch and supporting RSIR’s continued growth throughout the region,” said Cal Lyford, Regional Vice President of Membership Sales for Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates, LLC. “As we approach the 10th anniversary of RSIR, I look back on a remarkable journey of extraordinary marketing, industry-leading systems, progressive retail branch offices and a committed leadership team. RSIR has built a solid foundation for another decade of expansion and brand stewardship in the Pacific Northwest.”
