Local Design-Build Firm Launches Full-Service, Life-Cycle Real Estate Brokerage


TONO Group announces fifth entity and launches RELO Real Estate Services

Lancaster, PA (October 4, 2016)- TONO Group (comprised of a family of businesses: RETRO Development, TONO Architects, PROTO Construction, and Interiors by DECO) has launched its newest entity: RELO Real Estate Services, an in-house, full-service life-cycle real estate brokerage. Unheard of in this area and progressively ahead of its time, RELO Real Estate Services transforms the way real estate is practiced.

“We’ve seen a growing need to adapt to the changing real estate landscape by providing a more informed approach to brokerage. Strengthened by the broader resource of TONO Group, RELO offers the spectrum of professional resources unmatched in the industry,” says Managing Principal and Owner, D. Hunter Johnson, AIA.

RELO (from the word relocate) Real Estate Services operates as a non-traditional brokerage—offering residential, commercial, and investor clients listing services, buyer agency, tenant, and site selection. Because of RELO Real Estate Services’ unique relationship with TONO Group’s family of businesses, clients are invited to “Dwell in Possibility” by exploring the limitless options of any property with professional, experienced, and collaboratively-focused, in-house developers, architects, builders, contractors, and designers.

RELO Real Estate Services’ agents do more than just help clients buy or sell properties; they work smarter to offer better options to fit each client’s needs during each stage of their residential or commercial lives. With fewer boundaries between the develop, design, build collective, RELO Real Estate Services promises to help clients recognize, reimagine, and reach each property’s fullest capacity. Its tagline is “Dwell in Possibility.” RELO is already working with its first client.

“I see RELO as an opportunity for clients to work with a real estate firm that places more emphasis on how their clients live and use their space. RELO’s relationship with TONO Group and its family of companies gives clients the freedom to imagine the potential and value of a property and realize that vision in ways typically not found in a traditional real estate brokerage,” says Partner and Broker Kurt A. Schenck, CNE, who was a Commercial Realtor with High Associates and a Resident Realtor at Sotheby’s and Howard Hanna.
