WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Donna Riniti has been promoted to regional vice president for Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage's Westchester County region.
In her new role, Riniti will oversee the 13 branch offices in Westchester County and Putnam County and will report directly to Cathleen Smith, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Connecticut and Westchester County, N.Y.
Riniti most recently served as branch manager of the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage office in Yorktown Heights. Under her leadership, the Yorktown Heights office consistently ranked as the No. 1 office in Yorktown, Cortlandt and Peekskill for closed transactions, according to the Hudson Gateway MLS.
Riniti was also recognized with the prestigious President’s Council award, an award presented by Coldwell Banker’s parent company to sales office managers throughout the country who have demonstrated their exemplary leadership and management skills.
Prior to leading Coldwell Banker’s Yorktown Heights office, Riniti served as branch manager of the company’s Bedford office.
“Donna is known throughout the industry for her professionalism, in-depth knowledge and exceptional leadership. She continually demonstrates her strong commitment, enthusiasm and passion for this business, which will be great assets in her new role,” said Smith. “I am very happy that Donna has accepted this new role, and I’m confident that her strong connections and her proven success as a manager will benefit the offices throughout Westchester County.”
With more than 30 years of experience in management, Riniti had a successful career in the retail industry before becoming a real estate professional. She was vice president of store operations for a large national retail company, where she was responsible for overseeing 43 stores in 17 states.
In this role, she mentored and coached a team of 1,000 sales associates while also helping to increase their technical competency and efficiency. Prior to that, she was a district manager for another well-respected retail company overseeing 10 stores in the Houston metropolitan area.
Riniti earned a real estate license more than 10 years ago and began assisting homebuyers and sellers in Westport, Conn. As a real estate agent, Riniti was recognized for her sales accomplishments and the service she delivered to her clients. She affiliated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in 2007, where she was soon tapped to manage the company’s Bedford office.
“Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage has a talented group of real estate professionals and office managers, and the company offers them the support and resources that are necessary to be successful in an ever-changing real estate industry. I am honored to have the opportunity to work closely with our Westchester County management team to achieve their goals and to continue attracting, supporting and developing a motivated group of real estate professionals who will provide the superior service that our clients expect from us,” Riniti said.
