ATC_BalloonRE/MAX Preferred Realty has expanded into Montevideo and Granite Fall markets by merging with RE/MAX Neighbors. The merger brings RE/MAX Preferred Realty’s locations to five, serving home buyers and sellers in and around the communities of Willmar, Spicer, Olivia and now Montevideo and Granite Falls.

For the last 19 years, RE/MAX Preferred Realty has built its presence in Central Minnesota, offering extensive resources for clients interested in residential and lake shore properties. The expansion will provide unified RE/MAX brand impressions and give the public better access to convenient locations, 14 full-time agents, and a variety of tools, increasing opportunities to buy and sell homes efficiently.

Randy Ryan, broker/owner of RE/MAX Preferred Realty, says, “The unified efforts of our five offices allow us to offer our services to anyone who wants to live in Central Minnesota.  Whether someone is interested in year-round residency, or a vacation home overlooking a lake, RE/MAX Preferred Realty is equipped to help them find exactly what they’re looking for.”

Ryan has been with RE/MAX since 1995, and opened the first RE/MAX Preferred Realty office in Willmar in 1998. Since then he has expanded RE/MAX Preferred Realty to include franchises in Olivia, then Spicer, and now Montevideo and Granite Falls.

The new RE/MAX Preferred Realty offices are located at 408 N. First St. in Montevideo and 780 Prentice St. in Granite Falls. For more information visit
