We Have Many Years of Experience in the Field

We built a successful kitchen and bath rep agency from scratch. The majority of lines we represent were pioneered in New England and upstate New York by us. We have over 150 loyal dealers and the list is growing. We generate ideas that are dynamic, implementable, measurable and effective. We pursue unconventional methods and marketing techniques to create markets where none existed.

From our dealers

Thanks, Scott J., Compass Kitchens.
Compass Kitchens has had a working relationship with Rave Reps for the past 9 years. Rave has done a great job in training our staff on the Cabinetry & Products they represent . If our designers have any questions , Ray is always responsive, getting back - "Ray is our Rep!" The Cabinetry & Products they represent are superior quality. We greatly appreciate having Rave Reps as part of our Team!

Our Mission



With our decades of experience as designers, dealers, manufacturers, installers, builders, marketers and business managers, we offer realistic representation and provide a liaison for the dealer and manufacturer. We are committed to your business. You'll have a dedicated rep and the power of the Rave Reps team behind you all the way.



We operate on the principle of true partnering, working as a team with dealers and manufacturers to spark dynamic business solutions. Our dealers work with the strength of our entire team behind them, not just one individual. The goal: generate sales.



We deliver the highest level of education available in the industry.

We train designers, sales managers, general managers and owners on how to work smarter, overcome objections, close more sales, maximaze product and profit, all based on our proprietary techniques and processes.



We represent kitchen and bath cabinetry for the home, and related products to a market of over 2200 dealers, lumber yards, and home centers in the six-state New England territory. We forge consumer-driven, push/pull marketing strategies to generate demand.

From our breadth of experience we extend unusual services to new clients: plan review, design services, installer training, display design, showroom layout and more.
