PIERMONT—Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty held a grand opening ceremony for its Piermont office at 540 Piermont Ave. on June 8th.

The new Piermont location is Rand Realty’s second office in the Rockland Rivertowns, joining its branch at 46 South Broadway in Nyack.

“Having a home on the Hudson River is an unmisssable opportunity for anyone who wants to live in Rockland County,” said June Stokes, New York regional manager for Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty. “This historic waterway has captured the imaginations of many homeowners, and we want to help our future clients build a life alongside its grandeur.”

With Piermont being one of the Rivertowns, it offers beautiful views for residents and visitors. Other than irresistible housing opportunities, the village also provides a picturesque downtown area with wonderful restaurants and small businesses, Rand officials state.

Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty gained a foothold in Piermont by acquiring Piermont’s Kennedy & Kennedy Real Estate, the brokerage firm announced.

“I’m very excited to take my career in this direction,” said Lina Kennedy, associate broker for the Piermont office of Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty. “After being a broker and owner of Kennedy & Kennedy Real Estate for almost 15 years, I have decided to join Rand Realty, a world-class company and family-owned local business. They are technological innovators with a great staff and have many resources that will support my team as they work towards continued success in the industry.”

“The Rivertowns in Rockland are thriving, and we are excited to have a Piermont location to help us boost our presence in this area and take it to the next level,” said Matthew Rand, managing partner for Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty. “Piermont is an amazing village, and we are proud to welcome Lina Kennedy and her agents to our Rivertowns team. Partnering this new branch with our Nyack office will be an unbeatable combination.”

Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty, founded in 1984, has more than 26 offices serving Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Putnam, and Dutchess counties in New York, as well as Bergen, Passaic, and Morris counties in New Jersey.

Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty has more than 1,000 residential real estate sales associates, as well as a commercial real estate company (Rand Commercial) and the Hudson United Group, which provides residential mortgage lending, title services, and commercial and residential insurance.
