William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage and Insurance has hired two industry veterans from Sotheby’s International Realty Network, Amy Kane and Jason Wilson, to lead the company’s expanded operation in the Westchester County and lower Fairfield County markets.

Kane joins the Shelton-based company as senior vice president of the Westchester and lower Fairfield region, while Wilson has been named vice president of William Raveis’ affiliate offices as well as vice president, regional director of operations for William Raveis Real Estate.

Kane most recently was director of sales at ONE Sotheby’s International Realty in Miami Beach, where she managed more than 175 agents in multiple offices. She previously was an executive vice president for sales at Douglas Elliman in TriBeCa. From October 2006 to April 2012, she served as regional vice president and later senior regional vice president for Houlihan Lawrence, winning the Westchester-based company’s Rookie of the Year award. She has also worked as a senior vice president at Prudential Holmes & Kennedy in Westchester.

A Yorktown Heights resident, Wilson most recently was Scarsdale branch manager at Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty in Westchester and served as co-manager of the firm’s Irvington office. With more than 18 years in the industry, Wilson also worked as a branch manager and licensed associate broker at Better Homes and Gardens Rand Realty and as an associate broker at Houlihan Lawrence.

Wilson is co-founder and former chairman of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors Young Professional Network and current president and treasurer of the Scarsdale Chamber of Commerce. He is the former host of “How’s the Market?” on radio station WFAS. He was named a “Forty Under 40 Rising Star” by the Business Council of Westchester.

“Amy and Jason bring an impressive history of being top performers at marquis real estate brands to William Raveis, along with a deep knowledge of the region,” said Chris Raveis, president of residential sales at the family-owned company, in the announcement.
