Under the leadership of Rich DeNicola, the Realogy Expansion Brands portfolio, including Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate and ERA®, saw major growth and retention in 2021. Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate welcomed 14 new firms throughout the first two quarters of 2021, and DeNicola also led the resurgence of the ERA Powered® affiliation model, a key differentiator in the industry.
“What I love about this industry is that every day presents a new challenge and something different to work on,” says DeNicola. “In my role, I get to help entrepreneurs be more successful business owners, which then allows them to provide higher service levels to consumers in the biggest purchase of their lives. It is highly rewarding.”
Additionally, DeNicola spearheaded one of the largest affiliations of 2021, RSVP Real Estate ERA Powered®, one of the nation’s leading previously independent firms.
