William Raveis Expands into Coolidge Corner, Brookline with the Acquisition of First Choice Realty

BROOKLINE, Mass. (June 12, 2014)—Chris Raveis, managing partner of William Raveis Massachusetts, recently announced the acquisition of First Choice Realty, a highly respected firm with a premier location in Brookline’s Coolidge Corner. This move follows an impressive first quarter of 2014 for William Raveis, where the company experienced a 44.4% increase in closed sales volume in Massachusetts, considerably outpacing the market.

Led by Greg Dorsey, founder of First Choice Realty with more than 17 years of experience, First Choice Realty opened their doors in 1999 and has had a proven track record in leasing and selling in the Brookline community ever since. The First Choice Realty team is prepared to bolster William Raveis’ market position in Brookline and the surrounding communities.

“We’ve been fortunate to experience consistent growth in Massachusetts since we first opened our doors here in 2003,” said Raveis. “We’re looking forward to working with Greg and his team as we continue that growth. Their extensive knowledge of the Brookline community will be an invaluable addition to William Raveis, and we’re thrilled to make them a part of our family.” 

In 2003, William Raveis began expansion outside its home state of Connecticut and, in those 11 years, the company has established 56 additional offices throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New Hampshire and New York, including, most recently, Manhattan.

“When talking to Chris, it was immediately clear to me that we had a similar vision,” said Dorsey. “There’s a strong focus within the company on providing agents with innovative technology and unparalleled agent marketing tools—it’s truly unique. I’m confident that our agents will have a smooth transition in to William Raveis, and that ultimately this will be the best choice for them to reach the highest level of success possible.”

First Choice Realty is a full service residential real estate company servicing Brookline, as well as the surrounding area. Independently owned and operated, the company was founded by Greg Dorsey, a top producing business owner with over 17 years of experience in the real estate industry.

The First Choice Realty offices are located at 1394 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA.
