Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, November 15, 2018: Forino Co., L.P. is now represented by RE/MAX of Reading, led by Jack Fry, Jim Williams, and Joe Peterson. This change is effective immediately, with Lisa (Forino) Hermanovich, Director of Sales at Forino completing the license transfer from Simple Choice Realty, Inc. to RE/MAX of Reading. The primary motivator of change for Forino stems from the desire to continue to improve the Forino product and customer service in Berks County by having a stronger connection with the community of home buyers and sellers. In order to achieve that, the best possible choice as a partner in real estate was the RE/MAX of Reading team.

RE/MAX of Reading is committed to excellent customer service and doing business the right way. The values Mr. Fry has instilled in his leadership team, administrative staff, and agents are commendable. RE/MAX of Reading is not only consistently recognized and awarded for their achievements locally, but also on a national level. Forino has been on a mission for the last five years to become the premier choice in home building, apartment, and home rentals, in addition to commercial and multifamily construction in Pennsylvania. Lisa states, “Over the past three years, I have developed many strong personal relationships with the agents at RE/MAX of Reading and we are thrilled to be a part of their outstanding team. We are looking forward to bringing the Forino products to RE/MAX and showcasing them in new ways for buyers and renters. To say we’ve had a warm welcome is an understatement!”

Currently, Forino builds 90+ new homes per year combined with a rental portfolio of over 290 units in Berks and Schuylkill County that makes an immense impact on the local housing inventory. Having the resources at RE/MAX of Reading and their esteemed agents will further improve each segment of Forino’s business and continued success. Forino is also aggressively growing their operations in the Coastal South Carolina region near Hilton Head Island in both residential home building and multifamily apartment building.
