Peter G. Helie, president and chief executive officer of Prudential Connecticut Realty, was recently elected director of the Realty Alliance, an elite group comprised of 50 of the nation’s top real estate firms.

The Realty Alliance offers members a comprehensive curriculum of ongoing informative meetings and seminars. Member firms provide the alliance with yearly financial information, as well as production figures, which are used to limit membership to include only the top companies in the industry.

“We’re very excited about the opportunities this relationship offers Prudential Connecticut Realty,” said Helie. “We are committed to providing our customers with top-notch service to make buying and selling real estate as seamless as possible. This membership will enable us to benchmark our programs and services against the very best in the field.”

Rocky Hill-based Prudential Connecticut Realty was chosen to join the alliance based on its recent track record. During his career, Helie has created the Vision Group, which is comprised of 20 member firms with a combined sales volume of $33.5 billion, according to RealTrends Newsletter. Helie was also named Broker of the Year by the Prudential Real Estate affiliates.
