Charlotte McKenzie and Connie Ransom are true champions for Riverside!
The mother-daughter real estate duo have lived in Riverside for over 40 years and are very familiar with the City and each neighborhood’s history, character and diversity. They also have 14 years of experience in the Inland Empire Real Estate Market and are committed to providing the best possible service to their clients. The Ransom McKenzie team is able to put their knowledge of the local market to work when introducing new Riverside residents to the city and when helping their sellers sell quickly.
Not only are they expert Realtors, they are experts in Riverside.
The team became certified Riverside Realtor Regents as members of the inaugural class of the Riverside Realtor Regents Certificate Program. This program was implemented by the City of Riverside, along with the Inland Valley Association of Realtors recognizing certified realtors as ambassadors and the first point of contact for the City. In addition to connecting with city leaders and learning more about the schools, recreation, arts and other features that make Riverside a great place to buy a home, realtors who complete the program are listed on the City’s Web Site as “Certified Realtors,” can join marketing efforts promoting Riverside housing, among other benefits.
As champions for Riverside, the Ransom McKenzie team are helping to tell Riverside’s story through their daily work as realtors. The team has begun “Blog Riverside”, a blog on their website that features stories about what makes Riverside unique and why the City is such a wonderful place to live, work and play. Their post on August 16 was a spotlight on quality of life in Riverside and provided a great commentary on the current efforts underway to ensure the highest quality of life for all Riversiders.
The following is an excerpt from that post:
The City’s tagline has been in use for 3 years now and we’re beginning to see the benefits of living in the City of Arts & Innovation. In the past, Riverside has been a mecca for home buyers who came here solely for the affordable homes. When compared to LA or Orange County, we were always the more affordable option. But there is a new force driving the economic development of Riverside and the Inland Empire as a whole these days. The region seems poised for a lot of exciting changes and developments, all of which are sure to enhance our quality of life.
It is not just a question of supporting the arts, it boils down to a question of supporting the quality of life here in the Inland Empire. Mayor Loveridge credits the City’s strong support for the arts as a key boost and energy driver for our City’s Renaissance efforts as we create a city that is the place to be not just because of affordable housing, but because we have a quality of life which makes it enjoyable to be here.
We couldn’t agree more. Arts & culture, education, and entertainment are key reasons to love Riverside. We currently have a sustainable network of art, music, entertainment and education. With the positive things going on in Riverside, it is a wonderful place to call home. The California Arts Council is taking notice, The Culver Center of the Arts is continuing to produce innovative arts projects, The Fox Performing Arts Center is bringing a variety of performers to town, and the Universities are growing and expanding, including plans for UCR’s Medical School. All of these efforts will continue to enhance our quality of life here in the City of Arts and Innovation.
Through their work in real estate, Charlotte McKenzie and Connie Ransom are proud to tell Riverside’s story and share why the City is a location of choice and a wonderful place to call home. We would like to hear how you are telling Riverside’s story too.
