ERA Absolute Realty, located at 369 Applegarth Road, announced the merger of neighboring firm Levinson Associates. The new company, which will combine operations into Levinson Associates’ current office located at 349 Applegarth Road..., will now do business as ERA Levinson Realtors.
With this merger, ERA Absolute Realty broker/owner Scott Lauri has tripled the size of the company, making the merged firm the clear market leader.
Founded in 1980 by Bob Levinson, Levinson Associates has 25 agents who were responsible for nearly $55 million in total sales volume in 2013. Levinson will oversee the firm’s commercial division.
“Joining forces with Levinson Associates will create tremendous synergies for our agents, as we combine our expertise in serving both sellers and buyers,” said Lauri. “In addition, Bob’s deep roots in this community and his leadership in the real estate industry will be a tremendous asset to the company.”
“As an ERA company, we will be able to tap into the rich education and training programs, state of the art technology platform and robust online listings distribution and marketing services that will serve to further distinguish our agents in the marketplace,” said Levinson. “It’s a great move for all of us.”
“Scott Lauri represents the next generation of real estate professionals who will not only embrace change but lead it,” said Charlie Young, president and CEO of ERA Real Estate. “Under Scott’s leadership, ERA Levinson Realty will maximize the synergies and opportunities inherent in this new partnership.”
