GREENWICH, Conn. -- Houlihan Lawrence has acquired Shore & Country Properties, a residential brokerage in Greenwich.
Shore & Country’s 20 agents brokered about $165 million in home sales in 2014, according to the announcement, which was made Monday. The Shore & Country office in Riverside will become Houlihan Lawrence’s second office in Greenwich.
The Shore & Country acquisition comes on the heels of the recent announcement that the former Kelly Associates offices in Darien and Rowayton have joined the Houlihan Lawrence network.
In less than 18 months since first entering Connecticut, Houlihan Lawrence has opened four Fairfield County offices and established itself as a force in southern Connecticut. In 2014, the Houlihan Lawrence Greenwich office surpassed $500 million in sales and was ranked the No. 2 office in Greenwich. The company expects to exceed $1 billion in Connecticut home sales in 2015, just its second full year operating in the state.
“As we continue our growth in the Connecticut market, we are proud to welcome the team from Shore & Country Properties into our expanding family,” said Stephen Meyers, President and CEO of Houlihan Lawrence.
“In addition to combining two cultures that share a commitment to outstanding client service, we have now gained a physical presence on the eastern side of town. The addition of the Riverside office will allow Houlihan Lawrence to strengthen our roots in the community, allowing us to better assist our clients with a new level of expertise.”
Shore & Country Properties focuses on the entire Greenwich community with an emphasis on the Riverside, Old Greenwich and Cos Cob markets. The firm has been recognized for selling listings quicker and at a higher list price to sales price per agent than any other Greenwich firm.
Houlihan Lawrence ranks among the top 20 of all brokerages nationally in sales volume, and is the long-standing leader in the markets it serves. The company sells about one-third of all homes in New York City’s northern suburbs, more than double the sales of its closest competitor in the region.
