As leaders in the real estate industry, Live Love Artemis is raising the standards to how business is done by providing unparalleled excellence to their clients. Both Becky Rynkiewicz and Raffaellina Merlino were already excelling in their real estate careers before establishing the Live Love Artemis brand but shared a common feeling of unfulfillment that later led to their companies’ conjoinment.

The Live Love Artemis Real Estate Group’s mission is to create an environment that embodies positivity, empowerment, and excellence through community contribution while serving clients with love.
Meet Co-founder Becky Rynkiewicz
Becky Rynkiewicz is a Bentley College graduate who graduated with a degree in Business. Directly after her graduation, she secured a job as a district manager for a popular grocery store chain where she worked for a total of four years. Feeling unfulfilled with her occupation, she grew a keen interest for real estate and its process which led to her making the drastic jump to changing her career. In addition to her passion for real estate, it is key to note that Becky grew up in a trailer park community. Her early surroundings and upbringings have given her the ambition necessary to work hard with the desire to progress her lifestyle. At the age of 23, Becky bought her own house and started working for Keller Williams in Ohio where she built her foundation and owes her early success to. Within her first year of real estate, she was voted rookie of the year after accumulating $4 million in sales with little very experience in this industry. Becky then moved to Pennsylvania where she met Raffaellina in her real estate class to pass the required state test and they instantly became friends.
Meet Co-founder Raffaellina Merlino
Raffaellina Merlino was raised in an immigrant Italian family household that owned an Italian restaurant. She went to Fairleigh Dickinson where she managed to complete five years of college within four years and graduated with a Marketing degree. Raffaellina then blossomed in the fashion industry where she worked for Christian Dior. Feeling that similar notion of unfulfillment like Becky, Raffaellina decided to leave Dior to start her new career as an entrepreneur. Watching her parents struggle to adapt to America as they built the roots of their family business, from a young age, inspired Raffaellina to pursue her own entrepreneur opportunity in real estate. After getting married, she moved to Philadelphia and absolutely fell in love with the city. As she worked on obtaining her PA Realtor license, she became a builder’s consultant to her and her husband’s home flipping business called CityScape Investments. Once Becky and Raffaellina joined forces Live Love Artemis International Real Estate Group at KW Philly was born. *Furthermore, Raffaellina has an organization called Table Share that is a charity that helps feed the homeless.
You must be thinking, why the name Artemis? The day before Mother’s Day, Raffaellina called Becky and they talked about what they should name their new company. Raffaellina mentioned the name “Artemis” because her beautiful wedding gown was named after this Greek Goddess of the hunt, wild nature, and chastity. The Goddess Artemis, daughter of Zeus and twin sister of Apollo, was the protector of young girls and women. Her impact to her community brought strength and power with a feministic touch. When Raffaellina explained this concept to Becky over the phone the opposite line went silent. Finally, Becky exclaimed that when she made a huge settlement on a house she recently sold, she took her mother to a luxurious restaurant where she told her mother to select any wine bottle she wanted for the evening. Unremarkably, Becky’s mother chose a bottle of a cabernet from Stags Leap Vineyard named Artemis. Thrilled with their similar experiences, they both decided to name their company Live Love Artemis after this powerful Greek goddess.
Meet Chief Operating Officer Nino Royalle
Although the first task in naming their aspiring international company was successfully crossed off, Raffaellina and Becky needed to add some members to their team to help build and expand their new brand and mission. They decided to hire Nino Royalle as their Chief Operating Officer who essentially became the mastermind behind marketing the Live Love Artemis brand and the Live Love Artemis Real Estate Estate Group. Nino oversees various tasks such as branding the business, creating and designing marketing content, managing listings, handling the operational systems, and helping things stay afloat. Her belief is that a business’ success is directly tied to the company’s excellence in providing exceptional service to its clientele by always placing their client’s satisfaction as top priority. Together, the team works hand in hand to live by the Live Love Artemis value of setting high standards in their industry by instilling the best services possible all while giving back to their community.
