Commercial real estate services provider RMC Property Group and real estate property management firm Ross Realty Group joined forces this June, creating an expanded portfolio of services and opening the door for 15 additional property management, accounting, marketing, brokerage and administration team members.
The newly merged team plans to open a new office in the Westshore district by September 2013, moving the former Ross Realty Group from its Clearwater offices to enhance and increase team collaboration.
The former Ross Realty Group’s investment sales and leasing team has now become RMC Ross Realty; the firm’s property management team has joined RMC’s property division and will effectively operate under RMC Property Group.
"There is a synergy there which enables the combined entities to grow. The more opportunities come around, the more you’ll need to hire people and resources to get the job done. That’s the ultimate test -- to continue to grow," says RMC Property Group's
President Susie Rice.
As RMC evaluated their operations, client offerings and existing business relationships, they saw an opportunity to expand by creating additional lines of business to accommodate growing customer needs.
"RMC’s business goal was to find another company to grow with and expand our business lines. We have clients that want us to handle more services for them," says Rice.
The recent merger allows RMC to incorporate the addition of three new lines of business: brokerage services, investment sales and tenant representation. The combined entities now manage more than eight million square feet of office and retail space.
"Our goal is to provide the best service and more services to existing and future clients, take our years of experience in the market, collaborate to grow the business, and add more services," says Rice.
As the team and leadership further acclimates to the merger, forward initiatives include additional collaboration, leading to new lines of business to effectively create additional firm growth and workforce additions.
"It’s been a really nice ride, and it is just really exciting for our entire team," says Rice.
