ERA Announces new Affiliation within Boston City Limits
Great Spaces Real Estate to Add Additional Strength to ERA's Growing Metro Boston Footprint
MADISON, N.J., Oct. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ERA Real Estate, a global franchising leader, today announced the affiliation of Great Spaces Real Estate, a respected brokerage located in the heart of Boston's Dorchester neighborhood. Established in 2014, the company will now serve clients as Great Spaces ERA Real Estate.
Founded by close friends Nadine Fallon and Jamie Iacoi, the company has primarily catered to home buyers, sellers, and renters in Dorchester. As Great Spaces joins the ERA® network, the two founders plan to continue their expansion into Greater Boston, from Metro-West, North & South Shores, and everywhere in-between.
"This is an exciting opportunity for ERA Real Estate to add to our network in the Greater Boston area," said Simon Chen, president and CEO of ERA Real Estate. "Great Spaces is a company that, after only three years, became the number one real estate agency for sales in Dorchester in 2017," continued Chen. "That's pretty incredible, and it's a testament to their team's work ethic, drive and customer service."
"It took teamwork to get us where we are today," said Jamie Iacoi, co-founder and partner at Great Spaces. "We couldn't be more excited to join the ERA brand, which is supported by an organization with a vibrant and collaborative culture that is also deeply committed to the latest technology that fuels agent productivity," continued Iacoi. "This affiliation will allow us to go further and provide an even better experience for our customers."
Forging relationships has been key to Great Spaces' success, as the team has become deeply embedded in the Dorchester community. Every member of the team lives, works and volunteers in the area and the company supports local causes such as the Boys & Girls Club of Dorchester, the Halloween Kids Parade, and DotOUT, a local Dorchester LGBTQ group.
On Oct. 1, Great Spaces ERA Real Estate held a friends and family appreciation night at dbar where they shared the news of the ERA affiliation.
"Prior to founding Great Spaces, both Jamie and I spent time working for large corporations, like UPS and Ingersoll Rand, and appreciate having the support of a larger organization," said Nadine Fallon, co-founder and partner at Great Spaces ERA Real Estate. "We'll now have that additional support, while still being able to give our clients the deeply personal experience that defines who we are as a company."
