Jim Black Group Joins The Real Brokerage for the Agent-Led Experience

Northeastern team brings real world success and a desire for collaboration

After 10 years of building a thriving team across Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Connecticut, Jim Black, Founder of the Jim Black Group, brings his 17-person team to Real. Jim and his team bring a growth mindset to the three-state coverage area, where they focus on strong relationships—both with their clients and their communities.

“Our team believes that our customers are our greatest salesforce,” Jim said. “Do right by your customers, and they will be the positive marketing you need to secure your next listing.”

The team brings 9 full-time agents—each of whom sold upwards of 80 homes in 2022—to Real, a brokerage they see as critical for the next stage of their growth. 

“Despite being home to more than 10,000 agents, Real operates like a boutique brokerage,” Jim said. “The corporate team is always looking to partner with agents to make the brokerage into exactly what agents are looking for, and I love the idea of joining an organization like this that’s open to my feedback. And because they’re agile, they’re able to implement change quickly,” he continued.

While real estate can be a competitive market, Jim said the collaborative culture was a significant selling point for why his team made the move to Real.

“The culture is huge for me, knowing that I get to collaborate with other agents in my market rather than compete against them,” Jim continued. “Real’s agent base is made up of industry thought leaders and others looking to follow the latest trends. Working together will enable everyone to be more successful.”
