Rachel Ray Real Estate held an open house for its new location in downtown New Albany on Thursday, March 18.
The real estate company is now located at 106 N. Camp St., and previously it was on State Highway 15.
Owner/broker Rachel Ray said, “We absolutely love” the new location, which is in a building that dates back to 1925 and once served as a bottling company. The building was extensively remodeled by the prior owners, Jason and Jessica Jordan.
“They made the building what it is,” Ray said. “It’s gorgeous.”
Ray said she loves being in the downtown area of New Albany and said there was a good turnout for the open house event.
The agency has been in business since July 2019 and has grown tremendously since it started with Ray as the only agent. Now there are 16 agents.
“We have a really cool work environment here,” Ray said, adding that the agency also has a great training program for new agents. “We have a really cool group of people here.”
