Meet the Team
Serving Ithaca, Lansing, Trumansburg, Cortland, Elmira, Horseheads, and Surrounding Areas.
In one of the most competitive markets in Southern Tier, having a powerful real estate team behind you isn’t just helpful, it’s essential. The freedom to choose well, to move boldly, and to invest wisely comes when your advisors are simply the best.
The signature Jolene Rightmyer-Macolini Team transaction leverages unrivaled industry expertise with creative next-generation marketing and technology to empower clients in navigating the market with confidence. It’s a strategy that goes back to the very beginning when we began using professional videos, photographers, and stagers to market our listings. We revolutionized how properties were presented and our sales set records across the city.
Innovation, eye-catching print and online marketing, smart public relations, effective social media, and hyper-local advertising set The Team’s listing campaigns apart as some of the most comprehensive in the area.
Ultimately, Jolene Rightmyer Team knows their long-term success depends on being more than transactional. Establishing clients for life is the goal. It’s really that simple. By prioritizing clients’ interests, exceeding expectations, and championing long-range goals, we’ve built an impeccable sales record. However, it’s the grateful reviews from past clients that tells them they’re doing exactly what they set out to do.
Our record-setting sales across the city are notable—but we’ve never cared much about impressing anyone. While our experience, focus, and innovation set us apart from other agents, it’s ultimately about elevating our clients to ensure they come out ahead in this competitive market.
But while pushing the limits on your home’s final sales price has obvious benefits for you, it also impacts our own long-term success. We call this an alignment of interests. The higher your sales price, the more equity we create for your neighbors who we hope become our future clients. Our next listing opportunity depends on doing a phenomenal job selling your property and pushing the market forward. The goal is always to maximize the return on your investment and set a new price record, if possible.
World Class Leadership
While many agents are content to follow trends, we’re setting them. Our team is stacked with industry leaders in the areas of marketing, technology, design, and operations. We are cohesive and collaborative in everything we do which ensures that each client benefits from our collective strength.
We Know Tech Buyers
We’ve always known that setting ourselves apart in upstate NY’s booming real estate market requires being smarter and working harder. It also requires familiarity and trust with the core industry that is energizing the housing demand across the city.
Understanding how tech professionals think and KNOWING what they want cuts out wasted time and allows us to meet and exceed their expectations.
They come to the Jolene Rightmyer Team first because we share a philosophy of perfecting the smallest details so that the final results are truly innovative and effective.
We don’t see members of the tech industry as mere clients—they’re also our business partners working with us to change how things are done, even in real estate.
