RE/MAX Executive Realty, headed by Hopkinton’s Chuck Joseph (left) along with Chris Arienti and Bill Wright, won a major national award at the RE/MAX International Convention last month.

At the RE/MAX International Convention in Las Vegas last month, Hopkinton’s Chuck Joseph and partners Bill Wright and Chris Arienti of RE/MAX Executive Realty were recognized with the 2019 Broker Owner of the Year Award for the United States.
Joseph said he was surprised and honored by the recognition, and he said all the company’s employees — which includes those who work at the office in Hopkinton — share in the accomplishment.

“It’s an honor we accepted on behalf of the 160 people that work with us,” he said. “It’s not something that we did on our own, it’s something this company has done. To get a national Broker Owner of the Year Award for multi-offices is a real honor. We were humbled and pleased, but we absolutely accepted on behalf of our agents, who continue to knock it out of the park every year.”

RE/MAX Executive Realty, with an office in Hopkinton, is the largest RE/MAX franchise company in New England.

In the fall RE/MAX Executive Realty was recognized in the Boston Globe’s Top Places to Work special section, placing third on the list of medium-sized companies.

Valis and Manis are managing partners at Hopkinton-based Blackstone Valley Wealth Management and have been providing financial services to clients in the New England area for over 40 years collectively. They are affiliated with LPL Financial, the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer.
