Nothnagle’s Brighton Office Welcomes Don Simonetti, Jr as Branch Manager

 14793(Rochester, NY) – Nothnagle REALTORS® is pleased to announce the appointment of Don Simonetti, Jr as Brighton Branch Manager.  A Rochester native, Don was born and raised in the real estate industry; he has 17 years of experience as an agent and has been a Director with the Greater Rochester Association of Realtors since 2011.

Don’s extensive background and experience in real estate will be an asset to the branch.  After graduating from law school, Don worked with the best real estate law firms in Rochester until he joined his father’s firm in 1997.  In 2004, he entered the Real Estate Management arena where he managed two large branches of another local broker for seven years.  In 2011, he joined the Holly Creek Team.  The essence of Don’s value system is his consummate professionalism, industry wide reputation for integrity, an unwavering commitment to client service and agent development.  “My style stems from the fact that I am an agent first and foremost,” Don Simonetti, Jr explained. “I see myself as leading the collective cause not as the manager first.”

Nothnagle’s Brighton branch is consistently one of the highest producing offices for the company.  “The collective brain power in that building is staggering,” stated Don Simonetti, Jr.  “My goal is to tap into that energy with each individual agent so that the energy of the branch is infectious.”  Don continued to state his goal for the future of the Brighton office to be a place “where the agents in the public understand we are the destination broker for Brighton NY.”

“We are very happy with Don’s newly appointed position as Brighton’s manager; he has the experience and desire to take the Brighton office to the next level,” stated Armand D’Alfonso, President and CEO of Nothnagle.  “The Brighton branch is already one of our #1 offices and we have plans to provide the Brighton Market with a consumer experience that exceeds all expectations.  We have a long-standing history in Brighton: for 35 years (from 1975 to 2010) our corporate offices were located in Brighton—it’s our history and Don’s drive that we hope to combine to provide the community with superior service.”

Three Nothnagle Agents Win Industry Awards

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 Three Nothnagle Agents Win Industry Awards

 

DSC02070(Rochester, NY) – Nothnagle REALTORS® is pleased to announce that three of its agents won awards at this year’s Greater Rochester Association of REALTORS® Leadership and Awards Luncheon.

Ron Matter of our Fairport office received the GRAR Honor Society Award.  Fellow Fairport colleague, Maria McGill presented and gave a very warm introduction.  Ron began real estate in the 1970s and served as a mentor to countless new agents.  He is a member of the Perinton Chamber of Commerce and as Maria stated, “always kind, always humble.”  And in that fashion he kindly gave a humble acceptance speech noting his surprise to be honored, stating “I just try to be there for as many people as I can.  I am fortunate to volunteer as I have the time to do so.”

The 2014 Women’s Council of REALTORS®’ Member of the Year Award went to Webster agent, Katherine Dexter. Born and raised in Rochester, Katherine became an agent in 2006 and joined WCR in 2007.  Her passion, apart from real estate, is volunteering in her community for countless organizations, like the Southwest Neighborhood Center and Rochester Rotary to name a couple.  She has served various positions on the WCR Board and, notably, was WCR President in 2012.

Val Morgan of our Webster office is the winner of the 2014 WCR Entrepreneur of the Year Award.  Former 2012 WCR President, Val is a seasoned agent who has been in the industry for 26 years and has won several sales awards as well as the GRAR REALTOR®-Associate of the Year in 2005.  She is active in her church and actively volunteers for numerous organizations.  Val’s success can be attributed to her personal mantra that hard work yields results.  In her speech she praised her branch manager, Lou DiMartino, and her fellow Webster colleagues: “You are the best colleagues in the world.”  She further commended the Council which presented her with the award, saying, “I have friends for life because of WCR.”

Additionally, at the luncheon Lanie Bittner from the Nothnagle Pittsford branch was installed to the GRAR Board of Directors.  Toni Connors from the Nothnagle Pittsford branch was installed as GRAR President-Elect.  Linda Wilson from the Nothnagle Brighton Branch was installed as GRAR Secretary/Treasurer.  Danielle Riley was installed as Secretary of the Women’s Council of REALTORS®.

“It is a wonderful accomplishment for our agents to be recognized by such prestigious organizations within the real estate industry,” stated Armand D’Alfonso, President and CEO of Nothnagle.  “I would like to extend my congratulations to our award winners, Ron Matter, Katherine Dexter, and Val Morgan, as well as to the newly installed officers and directors: Danielle Riley, Lanie Bittner, Toni Connors and Linda Wilson.  Your commitment to the real estate profession and our community is admirable and your recognition is well deserved.”
