William Raveis opened his firm in 1974 with only a desk, a phone, and a $2,000 loan, and it has since grown to be considered the leading family-owned real estate firm in the Northeast and one of the most well-respected in the country.

Long a fixture in Connecticut and several high-priced areas in New England, such as Cape Cod, Raveis soon began to branch out. In 2003, Williams son Chris joined the company and helped it expand to 50 new locations in the Northeast. The firm has since become a mainstay in markets in which it had not previously had a single agent, such as Westchester County.

This proliferation has led to heated tempers with competitors, however. In 2015 Raveis accused Douglas Elliman of blocking e-mails from the firm after Raveis sent a mass e-mail to Douglas Ellimam hoping to poach top brokers, particularly ones in Westchester who allegedly had felt ignored by Douglas Elliman.

In 2011 Raveis eyed New York City as its 100th office location, but the expansion there also suffered some recent bumps. Plans to acquire Bellmarc Realty, which would have been one of the biggest real estate acquisitions ever, fell apart. Several top brokers in Raveis Manhattan office defected from the firm shortly after being hired, which led to a delay in the roll-out of Raveis planned development division. A few hiccups aside, Raveis as a whole shows no signs of slowing down in the long-term, as the firm booked more than $8 billion in real estate listings in 2014.
