Joseph Rand

Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate – Rand Realty
General Counsel and Managing Partner

Having to manage the largest real estate brokerage in New York City’s northern suburbs requires a bit of energy, but luckily for Joseph Rand, he’s in no short supply. The general counsel and managing partner for Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate – Rand Realty, Rand oversaw 30 offices, 800 agents and over $1.5 billion in closed real estate transactions in 2013. Part of Rand’s success is due to his employee training tactics, which rely on a technique he calls “client-oriented real estate,” or CORE. If you stop thinking like a salesperson and start thinking about client service, he says, the results will be both positive and authentic – something all clients look for.

Rand is a published contributor for Inman and has both a an educational blog for agents and a personal blog for a window into his life and his move from the city to the suburbs. On top of managing his brokerage, Rand has nearly 15 years of legal experience in New York and serves as a Member of the Board of Directors to nonprofit United Hospice of Rockland.
