Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate has announced the addition of Massachusetts-based brokerage The Shanahan Group, serving Winchester and its surrounding areas. The company will now operate as Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate The Shanahan Group.
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate The Shanahan Group is led by broker/owner Nan Shanahan, who founded the brokerage in 2007, based on the philosophy of providing a superior level of service to home buyers and sellers.
“Nan Shanahan launched her company on the principle that finding a home is more than simply a transaction; it’s a lifestyle choice,” says Sherry Chris, president and CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate LLC. “She and her team mirror the mission of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, exemplifying an acute understanding of the real estate market and a proven ability to successfully match homebuyers with their ideal home. This reliable track record, combined with its charitable work, has made the company a pillar of the community. We are proud of the brokerage’s commitment to local organizations and the leadership roles of their staff in business groups.”
“Joining Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate will create a strategic growth opportunity for our agency to continue delivering a lifestyle service while leveraging a highly regarded national brand,” says Shanahan. “Our agents are excited to utilize the new technology and marketing platforms developed by Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate to better service our customers. This will help us to accelerate the growth of our regional market reach.”
Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate The Shanahan Group encourages their agents and staff to be active members in the community by sponsoring community charity events with Winchester Hospital, the Winchester Rotary Club and the Winchester Music School. The company also hosts an annual “Turkey Trot,” which is a fun run for children every Thanksgiving with proceeds benefitting Bridget’s Brigade, a local non-profit organization that provides critically ill children and their families with financial support.
Shanahan also sits on the Board of Directors for the Winchester Chamber of Commerce, and Rebecca Brennan-Laird, a sales associate with Better Homes and Gardens The Shanahan Group, is president of the Winchester Rotary Club.
Shanahan added, “When I started the company in 2007, top level personal service was a priority for our agency and my goal was to establish a company with agents who possess a strong knowledge of the real estate industry and a passion for giving back to the community. In Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, I have found a national lifestyle brand that shares this same goal.”
