HOMES Program to Host City-Wide Open House Sunday
SCHENECTADY – Mayor Gary R. McCarthy and the Schenectady HOMES Program welcomed Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Blake, Realtors (BHHS) to Downtown Schenectady on Thursday. The Capital Region Chamber of Commerce was also on hand to host the ribbon cutting for the new office at 426 State Street.
“Our HOMES Program has successfully assisted in the sale of hundreds of homes by bringing together an array of real estate professionals to help buyers through the home purchasing process, and we are extremely proud of the role Berkshire Hathaway has played in that success,” Mayor McCarthy said. “We are extremely pleased to welcome them to the heart of Downtown Schenectady and look forward to continue partnering with them to promote and facilitate homeownership in the city.”
The downtown office, located next to Proctors Theater and Aperitivo Bistro, is in a key location in the city. Downtown has experienced an economic renaissance due to the hard work of Schenectady’s unified economic development team, Mayor McCarthy added. BHHS is the fourth-largest residential real estate broker in the region, according to the Albany Business Review List.
“We are very excited to be in Schenectady. As a real estate company that serves this great city it’s only appropriate that we have a store front location making it easier for residents and future residents to have local access to real estate information,” said Ryan Clark, Branch Manager, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Blake, Realtors.
