Joe Solimine, Jr., Founder and President of Meridian Risk Management Insurance agency has been involved in the Real Estate business for ten years, assisting his mom, Joan, with her firm. Joe recently took over operations and opened Meridian Realty Consultants as principal broker.
The growth plan was always for Joe to take over once his mom wanted to step back and when the time came, he opened a new agency under the Meridian brand, not only because he has a great team in place, but because the market needed a fresh perspective.
When asked how both Meridian businesses can help the local marketplace, Joe stated, "Empathy and expertise. Our insurance experience helps us understand the magnitude of buying or selling a home and the emotional nature of the process. Having real estate and insurance experts side by side gives us the unique ability to solve two major aspects of the home buying process. Buying a home is overwhelming and can be downright scary. Having a real estate team that understands the compassion needed for such a significant life event and an insurance team that provides the best insurance at the right value delivers quick relief to buyers who are already inundated with the tasks associated with buying a home. On the sell side, our real estate experts negotiate the optimal price for the home, while our insurance team ensures that the required cancellation of insurance for the sold home and subsequent procurement for the new destination is a seamless process. Peace of mind for our clients on both sides of that equation."
Joe and the MRC team are embracing just how informed and educated current buyers and sellers are on market info and available inventory these days. Zillow, Realtor.com, Trulia and other services provide potential clients with so much more info and knowledge now. MRC provides the same expertise and compassionate guidance through the process like we always did, now at a better value for our clients with a 3% commission on all residential listings.
Joe, Jr. and the entire Meridian team also place a high importance on giving back, especially where it matters most: close to home. Joe supports many local events and organizations, including: The Junior League of Pelham, The Picture House, Pelham Children’s Center, Pelham Art Center and many more, including local schools and sports.
Joe looks forward to bringing expertise, empathy and value to the Westchester County real estate landscape. To learn more about Meridian Insurance, click here: https://www.meridianrisk.com/
