Rochesterians have an abundance of choices when it comes to building, buying or furnishing a home or business. The six-county Rochester region is home to dozens of real estate, engineering and architectural firms employing thousands of individuals. Rochester’s downtown revitalization—headed by area developers and builders—continues to wow both visitors and long-time city-dwellers. Rochester’s largest residential real estate firm had more than 7,000 listings in 2015 and employed nearly 700 individuals. Its largest property manager runs more than 10 million square feet of property. The importance of the industry regionally is evident: In 2016, each of the Rochester Business Hall of Fame inductees had ties to real estate and its subcategories.
