Northern Liberties Real Estate - Remax Affiliates Is Moving to Northern Liberties !

Northern Liberties Real Estate - Remax Affiliates is Moving to Northern Liberties !

                                 Remax Affiliates Piazza at Schmidts in Northern Liberties

It was a big decision to move from Port Richmond, a neighborhood to which the owners Chris Somers and Steve Osiecki have many deep ties.  But the door of opportunity opened and they stepped into a new and exciting Real Estate future with a new location in Northern Liberties, a new construction building that is modern, sleek and posh in a dynamic area for consumers and agents alike.  In addition, the office will now be able to serve a greater portion of the Riverfront Neighborhoods into Center City because of its more centralized location.  The office is a Philadelphia brokerage, serving all of Philadelphia in addition to Bucks and Montgomery counties.

Rialto Building

Northern Liberties real estate offers a series of challenges as far as selling and buying is concerned. The market slow down has affected many of the high profile developers as a few projects have either slowed down or sadly failed on their first effort.  But Chris and Steve have a much brighter perspective and the skills to help propel their colleagues to meet growing success in their new location.  The area is extremely vibrant and energetic with tremendous room to grow.

The Rialto Building itself is a 7 story all glass professional building.  It is part of the Piazza project, an area surrounded by an incredible array of gastro pubs, fine restaurants and casual fooderies as well as shopping, galleries, boutiques, and entertainment. Parking is free and abundant.  Who would not want to come here every day to work and partake in such a dynamic culture - top agents and consumers alike ?

The suit does not make the man in the same way that the building will not make the business but in this case The Rialto location certainly builds confidence and pride, especially the incredible view from the settlement room of all of Philly !  There is something to be said about that and more !

Thanks everyone. Chris and Steve (and I) have a incredibly optimistic gut feeling that this is going to be a great move. The move will put positive challenges in front of us that we would never have otherwise encountered. We are excited and pumped up! The entire office is thrilled.

Looks like a great place to work,  have been hearing more and more about the area and the restaurants and pubs. So when you need to entertain or just need a good old fashioned pint of ale I am sure you are in the right place. Good luck with the new building when will you actually move in and be ready for business.
