With a solid foundation in both real estate and finance, Fay’s promotion to Sales Manager marks the next step in an already successful career. Prior to joining William Raveis in August as an Associate Sales Manager, he was a top-producing Sales Associate with Sotheby’s International Realty for more than four years.
