How We Work

The Blackstone Team at Mott & Chace Sotheby’s International Realty is an industry respected team of nine real estate professionals based in downtown Providence.  With over 70 years of collective real estate experience, each member of The Blackstone Team brings different skillsets to the table with the single goal of providing its clients with the highest level of customer-service and sales results available in Rhode Island and bordering Massachusetts.   

The Blackstone Team clients receive the passion, professionalism and perseverance of a boutique real estate agency working under the umbrella of the luxury marketing powerhouse of Sotheby’s International Realty.  The Blackstone Team is Managing Partner, Nelson Taylor; Managing Partner, Robert Rutley; Partner, Benjamin Kean; Partner, William Sherry; Partner, Ben Guglielmi; Sales Associate, Julien Jonfelix; Sales Associate, Amy Barrett; Associate Coordinator, Katie D'Amico; Marketing Director, Kelsey Gonsalves; and Director of Client Services, Robin Lake. 

When selling, each client’s customized campaign is spearheaded by their Lead Agent, who is in charge of strategy, showings, communication and negotiations.  The Lead Agent is supported by the Secondary Agent, who implements everything from smart staging to social media to print advertising.  The Secondary Agent also plays a key backup role for the Lead Agent, ensuring all buyers and agents land the showings they desire.  The final key role on your Sales Transaction Team is the Client Coordinator, who manages details behind the scenes, ranging from appointments to contracts to coordinating closings. 

When buying, each client’s customized search is managed by a Lead Agent, Secondary Agent and Client Coordinator, working together much in the same way as is done with sellers.  Together, the Purchase Transaction Team will offer rapid response time; strategic planning advice; electronic listing notification; convenient appointments; a keen understanding of the local marketplace; and strong negotiating and closing skills. 

From paying the utmost of personal attention; to employing the latest communication, management and marketing technologies; to consistent early adoption of the ever-changing real estate landscape, The Blackstone Team has the time, energy, creativity and knowledge necessary to deliver beyond expectation.
