NEW YORK—Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty has increased its footprint in the Bronx, the Nanuet-headquartered brokerage firm reports.

Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty has merged with Exit Realty Search of the Bronx. With the merger, the firm, brings more than 60 agents to the Rand Realty network. The brokerage firm also reported recently its merger with a White Plains brokerage, furthering its expansion efforts in the Hudson Valley.

“Throughout my time in this industry, I can’t think of a better opportunity than the one that I’ve had in leading my wonderful team,” said Benny Diasparra, broker/owner of Exit Realty Search. “Our team has loved serving the Bronx real estate community and surrounding areas and will continue to provide the same excellent service.”

Prior to joining Rand Realty, Exit Realty Search serviced all areas of Westchester, Long Island, the Bronx, and Queens. The firm has assisted buyers, sellers, and investors with all forms of transactions, including residential leases, commercial transactions, short sales, and foreclosures.

“This is a momentous occasion, not only for our Westchester offices, but for our company as a whole,” said Denise Friend, Rand Realty’s regional manager of Westchester County and the Bronx. “We couldn’t be happier to have Ben and his team join us as we continue to tackle these thriving markets.”

“Exit Realty Search is the largest and most-respected real estate brokerage in the Bronx,” said Matthew Rand, CEO of Rand Realty. “With more than 60 agents, this is one of the biggest offices with which we’ve merged. Our Bronx office will be moving into their space, which will now make us the top office in this region.”

Exit Realty Search’s offices are located at 3928 East Tremont Ave. in the Bronx.

Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty also reported recently that AXRE, Corp. of White Plains had merged with their company.

Nikolas Stanovic opened AXRE, Corp. in July 2016. The brokerage served New York City, Westchester County, Putnam County, and from Greenwich to New Haven, CT. For the transition to Rand Realty, Stanovic brings his team of eight salespeople, who will be working out of Rand Realty’s branch in White Plains, while he will be working as the new manager of Rand’s branch in the Bronx.

Stanovic has been involved with real estate since 2007, finding success in managing residential and commercial properties throughout New York and Connecticut. He holds a broker’s license.

“My team and I have been working in this market for almost two years, and we’re thankful to have the opportunity to join Rand Realty, who’ve made a strong impression in Westchester,” said Stanovic, president and principal broker of AXRE, Corp. “Our team is passionate about this industry, and we’re thrilled to be taking this next big step in our profession.”

“Nikolas and his agents have a strong ambition that makes them tailor-made for our company,” said Denise Friend, Rand Realty’s regional manager for Westchester County. “It’s impossible for their achievements to go unnoticed, and their experience guarantees that they’ll bring us some of our highest successes to date.”

“AX Real Estate is a young, ambitious team that began with rentals and has grown into a respected boutique firm,” said Matthew Rand, CEO of Rand Realty. “Not only are we proud to have these agents join our company, but we’re also excited to have Nikolas as our new Bronx manager.”

Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty, founded in 1984, has 28 offices serving Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Putnam, and Dutchess counties in New York, as well as Bergen, Passaic, and Morris counties in New Jersey.
