ERA Real Estate has announced the affiliation of Habitation Realty, a 21-agent brokerage headquartered in Tucson, Ariz. Established in 2007, the company will now serve clients as Habitation Realty ERA Powered.
Founded by Alex Mastrangelo, a longtime Arizona resident with a passion for refurbishing historic homes, the company has primarily catered to homebuyers, sellers and renters in Tucson. Formed during the last housing downturn, Mastrangelo began offering property management as an alternative to clients who were considering short sales for their homes, and it remains a robust division in the brokerage today.
“Habitation Realty is a company that works diligently to satisfy its clients, and whose innovative practices make the organization a great addition to the ERA® family,” says Simon Chen, president and CEO of ERA Real Estate. “We’re excited to add Habitation Realty and its sterling reputation to our growing national network.”
As Habitation Realty joins the ERA network, the brokerage plans to expand into a second office, located in Bisbee, Ariz., as well as affiliate 10 additional independent sales agents in the next year.
“ERA believes in testing out new ideas and allowing brokerages to independently innovate on the ground level,” says Mastrangelo. “This is something I’ve done my whole career and look forward to continuing under the ERA brand name. This affiliation also provides us with more resources in terms of technology and agent-centered education, enabling us to stay at the forefront of change in the industry while remaining true to who we are as a brokerage.”
