RealtyUSA recently bought offices from Elliott Realty Inc. in Watertown and Henderson to expand its outreach in Northern New York.
The Amherst-based real estate broker bought Elliotts two offices in February at an undisclosed price. Fourteen former Elliott Realty brokers and agents now will work under the RealtyUSA corporate name due to the merger, but they will continue to serve the same markets. Offices are at 642 Coffeen St. and 12505 County Route 123, Henderson Harbor.
The company didnt disclose any financial details of the agreement in a news release.
William J. Elliott, former owner/broker of Elliott Realty, said the company will continue to grow under the RealtyUSA name. Mr. Elliott, owner of Elliott Realty for 18 years, will continue to lead the Watertown and Henderson locations as a RealtyUSA broker.
We have been in discussions for several years and I am impressed with RealtyUSAs growth and direction in the marketplace, Mr. Elliott said in the release. From our initial meeting, I was pleased to find that we shared the same business ethics and core values. I am looking forward to taking our business to the next level while continuing to expand my business relationship being a part of the RealtyUSA family.
RealtyUSA has more than 60 offices and 2,500 agents and employees in its New York state offices. In 2013, the company ranked as the sixth largest independent real estate firm in the U.S. It handled more than 21,000 transactions, totaling $3.5 billion in sales in 2013, according to the release.
This represents a terrific opportunity to expand RealtyUSAs presence in the Watertown (and) Henderson Harbor area, and we are excited to have Bill Elliott and his agents to be a part of our family, said Merle Whitehead, president and CEO of RealtyUSA.
