Armory Properties was created in 1998 to provide professional real estate brokerage services in Providence's up and coming historic neighborhoods. The principals in The Armory Revival Company – Mark Van Noppen, BJ Dupré, and H. LeBaron Preston – founded Armory Properties when it became clear that real estate agents working in Providence's Armory District did not see the fabulous historic, urban character of Providence as the neighborhood’s greatest asset. Agents at Armory Properties understand the lifestyle and aspirations of people attracted to city life and therefore are expert at bringing out the hidden value of historic properties in urban neighborhoods like the Armory District and Elmwood.
Agents working at Armory Properties are not your usual real estate professionals. They love old, historic properties and appreciate the more sophisticated amenities that urban places have to offer. Our agents are Historic House Specialists who have been trained and certified by the Providence Preservation Society. Armory Properties agents are committed to improving the quality of life and sense of place of the communities we work in. We promote owner occupancy in the neighborhoods to ensure their health and stability and donate countless hours to local preservation, arts, and neighborhood organizations. We have an expertise in the sale of historic homes to first time homebuyers and are very familiar with various loan and grant programs available to them. All of our agents are members of the Rhode Island and National Association of Realtors.
Armory Properties has also developed an expertise in helping our clients settle into the city, find a good school for their children, even meet new neighbors. Our relocation services are second to none. Our activity has expanded to Providence's East Side, Jewelry District, Downcity, Elmhurst, and Mt. Pleasant; Cranston's Edgewood; Pawtucket's Downtown Arts District; and other urban, historic places where our expertise can be fully utilized. Because we live in interesting neighborhoods and understand who is buying homes there, we are able to perfectly match a purchaser and a property to achieve maximum value and satisfaction for both Buyer and Seller.
