Warwick, R.I. – November 18, 2021 -- The Rhode Island Association of Realtors announced today that Agueda Del Borgo, Broker and Principal of Places and Spaces Realty in Providence, was recently installed as the 2022 president of the Rhode Island Association of Realtors. She assumed her position at the helm of the 6200-member, professional association this month, following her formal installation at the National Association of Realtors National Conference in San Diego.

An ardent supporter of teamwork, she embraces collaboration with fellow Realtors to elevate the real estate profession and ultimately, better serve clients.

Originally from the Azores, Del Borgo traveled extensively and lived in several states before settling in Rhode Island. She now resides in Pawtucket, with her husband Luca and two children.
