Halstead Real Estate Chairman and CEO Diane Ramirez leads the firm’s nearly three dozen offices and 1,300-plus agents throughout New York City, the Hamptons, Hudson Valley, New Jersey and Fairfield County, Conn.
In 2018, Halstead underwent a comprehensive rebrand, which Ramirez describes as an “enormous undertaking and an incredible group effort.” In the weeks following the launch – which involved a live company-wide meeting with more than 1,000 agents – no detail was left undone, from updating signage and branding for every office to re-designing all marketing and advertising materials.
The rebrand speaks to Ramirez’s eye toward the future, having founded the firm in 1984 with partner Clark Halstead; the pair worked diligently to expand the firm organically until it was purchased by Terra Holdings in 2001.
With a long list of awards and service to real estate boards and the community, Ramirez will become chairman of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® In 2019. “At Halstead, we are committed to delivering a forward-thinking and supportive culture to our agents, and the highest level of service to our clients and customers," she says. "We are so proud to be consistently recognized for our hard work and accomplishments on these fronts.”
