Who We Are

Deb Foppert, and her sons, Matt and Tim Archer, launched Jamestown Real Estate, LLC with the goal of offering a better approach to real estate services.   This new venture is an offshoot of Deb and her husband, Eric Archer’s law practice (Archer & Foppert, LLP), where they have been assisting clients with sales and purchases of both residential and commercial properties throughout Rhode Island for many years.  This new venture will formalize and expand that part of their legal work.  With Deb as the licensed broker, she, Matt and Tim hope to broaden their reach and provide the personal attention that has always been afforded their legal clients. 

Purchasing and selling real estate can be a daunting and complex process.  We believe that with over thirty five years of legal experience in Rhode Island real estate that we can help guide you through that process.  We are happy to discuss how entry-only companies operate and price their services.  This is not how most real estate offices begin the conversation with new clients, but as a seller, it is important to know the pros and cons of all of the options. 

We recognize that the role of the realtor has been redefined in recent years.   Buyers have become more self-directed during the digital era while property values have continued to soar.  Covid-19 has further redefined the role that realtors play: there are fewer open houses and office “walk ins”, and more virtual showings, yet the real estate market is skyrocketing.  We will structure our pricing based on the realtor’s new role in the process.

Our office has been considering this expanded service for years, but the events of 2020 made this an ideal time to start.  We will be acting as a team in a way that few offices can.  Tim brings an artist’s perspective from his Savannah College of Art and Design technical training along with his experience as a real estate agent in Jamestown.  Matt, with a University of Wisconsin economics degree, experience in title searching and preparing closing documents, and an ever-important sense of humor, will be an asset to our team.  Deb brings decades of legal experience in Rhode Island real estate, and the strategies, network, and priorities that are developed from such a background.

If you are in the market, we propose giving us ninety days to list your property or putting an offer in through us.  We welcome you to come discuss your plans even if you are listing elsewhere or placing an offer through another office.  Stop by the office!   All information is helpful, and we hope you will appreciate our transparency.
