Three questions with Jody Peters from The Riverside Realty Group.


What do you want the community to know? Are there ways for the community to help you and other local businesses to prosper?

As a locally owned and operated, independent boutique real estate brokerage we understand wholeheartedly how important it is to be anchored into the community. This means investing in the well-being and prosperity of our team members (all of our agents and staff live locally), small business retail shops, restaurants, town residents, schools, local government, and other circles of importance. The Riverside Realty Group has always been deeply committed to supporting the area we live in and work in. We remain focused on our founding concept - WE BUY LOCAL, WE SELL LOCAL, WE ARE LOCAL.

We believe that the key to seeing our community thrive is to support the hometown establishments and care for our neighbors. The Riverside Realty Group promotes a culture that values relationship building and community service in all facets. We are your Realtors ®, your neighbors, helping you safely home.

Are you offering any new products or ways for customers to purchase your products or services that are popular during this crisis?

The Riverside Realty Group is proud to offer a menu of virtual resources that can be easily accessed for review in greater depth on our new website. We made a quick, very successful pivot when the pandemic first impacted our industry. Innovation in technology has always been a priority for our brokerage so when we needed to rely more heavily on digital strategies to connect with our clients, we had everything we needed in place. Client consultations, showings, open houses, and offers could all be executed safely with our cutting edge, easy to navigate technology in place. We were able to transact in very effective and efficient ways.

Please share the ways your business is adapting to keep your customers and employees safe in addition to the standard guidelines.

We have relied heavily on our cutting-edge technology to keep our agent team and clients safe during this unique and challenging year. We feel very connected and have enjoyed offering a full menu of virtual services to our clients. Technology has been at the forefront of how we run our day-to-day operations for a long time. This has enabled our team to work fluidly from remote locations with access to all of the tools and platforms necessary in executing our objectives. Practicing social distancing and following strict guidelines to protect everyone's health is always of utmost importance.

Are there certain individuals or organizations that supported you and your business through this trying time?

We feel incredibly fortunate to have such an extraordinary team of hand-selected agents. United around our collaborative desire to serve our clients better, our agents operate with the highest level of ethical standards, financial acumen, and technological innovation by working together in a climate of integrity, trust, and dedication. The Riverside Realty Group agents are experts in their field with a wealth of knowledge in all areas of real estate and a core focus on providing the absolute best service the industry has to offer. Our outstanding track record, unique brand promise, and exceptional agent support attract the top talent, the very best in the industry. We feel so truly lucky to have each member of our team! They are the reason we are who we are and why we have experienced such monumental success as the only Fairfield County, independently owned, boutique real estate brokerage.
