Miranda Real Estate Group Inc. recently opened its third Capital Region office at 1412 Route 9P on Saratoga Lake in Saratoga Springs. In addition to its corporate office in Clifton Park, the company has a satellite office in Rotterdam.
Owner Willie Miranda, a real estate broker with 29 years of industry experience, is also the owner of Miranda Insurance Agency, an Allstate Insurance franchise in Clifton Park. When the Schenectady native and Clifton Park resident opened his real estate company 20 years ago, his staff included four agents.
“Little by little we went from a small team to a big team. In 2009, we were the number one team in the Capital District, and in 2011 I decided to be more of a broker—helping other agents build their business within our business,” he said. “We’re currently at about 89 agents.”
Because the company does a considerable amount of business in Saratoga, opening an office on Saratoga Lake made good business sense.
“There was an opportunity that came up that we thought would be good for our business,” said Miranda. “There are no other real estate brokerages that have an office on Saratoga Lake.”
Miranda Real Estate Group handles both residential and commercial properties. The company’s residential agents have been especially busy over the past several years.
