Resources Real Estate is proud to announce the opening of our new corporate office and training center.
Located at 457 Broad Street in Shrewsbury, the new state-of-the-art facility opened on February 6th, 2018, and will serve as the new corporate office, training center for the Resources sales associates and a marketing hub featuring a new video production studio. Much of the company’s agent-branded marketing, video market reports, property advertising and social media marketing campaigns will be generated here.
The corporate office now will be the home base for the company’s two owners, the operations manager, bookkeeper and support staff.
“We place a strong emphasis on proper, professional training and have outgrown our current space,” said Carolynn Ozar-Diakon, Senior Partner and Broker. “Opening this new facility accommodates our expanded training needs as well as frees up more space for agents within our sales offices. Our agent talent pool of experienced agents from other firms, as well as new recruits, has grown because of the support and superior training we provide.”
“Agent business development is our focus for 2018,” said Tom McCormack, Managing Partner and Broker. “Our marketing muscle will be further strengthened by this move as we expand our online, print and video capabilities. All of this will be a direct benefit to both our clients and our agents and we’re confident the positive impact on sales will be significant.”
This expansion will also provide the company with a presence along the Route 35 corridor.

If you have a luxury home to sell, you may want to consider some updates for the newly minted Affluent.
Average age around 37, according to Luxury Portfolio report, they consider Luxury differently than their parents. Although many of them may have inherited their wealth and are accustomed to living “the lifestyle”; they want to use their own brands, they want their own real estate with their own needs met.
Primarily looking for an urban lifestyle or at the very least close to urban areas. They appear to want the “specialty room” whether that be a media room or a large formal dining room. That might come as a surprise to home builders and Realtors alike, as our local luxury homes have had a more open feeling. These younger buyers expect to entertain family members for special occasions and holidays. Traditional values coming back? Of course, privacy and security are run of the mill requirements. Smartphone technology and home amenities go hand in hand for pretty much any savvy home buyer today. Control, locks, lights, music, security systems including security cameras all from a smart phone.
Home gyms and pools are a welcome addition as this generation really understands the need to stay fit and healthy. A pool might be harder to come by with limited urban space – that’s where the suburbs will shine again. Room to grow their families and perhaps be able to take care of elderly parents under the same roof. The suburbs that will remain popular are the ones with easy access to the urban areas. Train and drive time will be a large consideration. For the local area the NYC fast ferry is a large factor.
Don’t expect the luxury buyer to disappear any time soon despite the nay sayers of real estate and the economy. According to the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report Personal wealth in the U.S. grew by $8.5 trillion in 2017.
