Howard Hanna | Rand Realty Announces Leadership Changes
Veteran JP Endres will open Howard Hanna | Rand Realty's new Scarsdale office, and Jeanne Shields will become the New City branch manager while continuing to foster growth in Clarkstown and Rockland.
NANUET—Howard Hanna | Rand Realty reported on Nov. 30 a number of strategic leadership changes across several offices. JP Endres, a seasoned leader with more than a decade of management experience, is set to spearhead the upcoming Scarsdale office located at 1515 Weaver St., slated to open its doors in January 2024.
Born and raised in Scarsdale, Endres brings a wealth of experience, having successfully managed the brokerage’s New City office. Her return to Scarsdale reflects a profound connection to the community and a vision to establish a market-leading presence in both Scarsdale and the luxury real estate markets across Westchester. Endres served as the President of the New York State Association of Realtors in 2014 and was President of HGAR’s predecessor association—the Westchester County Board of Realtors, Inc. in 2004 and 2005 and was named WCBR’s Realtor of the Year in 2004.
In the wake of Endres’ move, Jeanne Shields, a distinguished leader with an illustrious career managing offices in Rockland County and Bergen County, NJ, steps into the role of New City office manager. Shields, previously at the helm of the Hanna Rand Nyack office, will continue fostering growth in the largest office in Clarkstown and Rockland County.
Samantha Ortiz, an industry professional with a diverse background, assumes the managerial responsibilities of the Nyack office. Most recently she took a leadership role in Hanna Rand's New City office upon returning to the area after managing a real estate company in Houston, TX.
Julian Diaz, the former leader of the New Rochelle office, transitions to a pivotal role as the head of the newly formed New Development Marketing Division. In this capacity, Diaz will oversee Howard Hanna Rand's expanding presence in multi-family rental developments and residential single-family developments across New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
Matt Rand, CEO of Howard Hanna Rand Realty and President of New York for Howard Hanna Real Estate Services described the moves by saying, “These leadership transitions reflect Howard Hanna Rand Realty's dedication to providing its agents with unparalleled support, coaching, and leadership, ensuring the continuation of a legacy marked by success and growth.”
