About Us

Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Warren Residential and Joshua Stephens are excited to have partnered with Rise Redevelopment to help bring high end condos to one of Greater Boston’s rapidly growing neighborhoods.

Specializing in helping people fulfill their dreams, BHHS Warren has been servicing the Greater Boston area as a leading real estate brokerage for almost a decade.

Joshua Stephens, one of the brokerage’s top agents, has dedicated himself to being the best realtor possible to ensure his clients are never without a doubt at every step of the home buying or selling process. He has also lived in Medford for the past 8 years and plans to stick around for many years to come. When asked what about Medford appeals to him, he said that it reminds himself of when he was young and everyone in his neighborhood knew each other and looked after one another. He also said that aside from the neighborhood camaraderie, Medford has great restaurants, bars, shopping, and parks or should you want to go into the City, it’s a 10 minute drive or a quick trip on the MBTA.

“It’s nice to walk outside and know that everyone around me holds the idea of being a good neighbor as an important characteristic of who they are.” – Josh Stephens

About Rise Redevelopment

After spending years in careers with large corporations across many industries, our youngest son was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and with his diagnosis we knew we needed to make a change to put his needs and the needs of our family first.  Careers in the corporate world come with commitments and inflexibility that just weren’t meeting our family’s needs.  It was then we realized we had to leave the corporate world behind and venture out on our own.  It was time to return to the industry we were most passionate about, Real Estate.  Creating a successful business venture that stood for something, provided the flexibility we needed, while building a legacy for our family doing what we love, was just what the doctor ordered and the birth of Rise Redevelopment soon followed.

Founded by Angela and Justin Benster, Rise Redevelopment, a woman led business (Angela’s our President), re-develops a large number of single family and multi-family properties throughout the Greater Boston Area with the intention of revitalizing communities and encouraging home ownership. Our mission is to rejuvenate neighborhoods and increase the standard of living by improving the overall quality of housing for the residents.  Through our caring approach to real estate, we ensure the surrounding neighborhood community understands the benefits of bringing new homes or breathing new life into homes in their neighborhoods.
