Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate has announced the acquisition of Dooley and Mason Realty Group, a local real estate firm that has served the region north of Boston for more than 11 years.
Dooley and Mason was launched in February 2008 by realtors Judy Mason and Lisa Dooley, both of whom had more than ten years’ experience before starting their company. For over 11 years, their agency covered not only the North Reading market but more than 25 surrounding towns and cities including Amesbury, Andover, Bedford, Beverly, Billerica, Boxford, Burlington, Chelmsford, Danvers, Dracut, Everett, Georgetown, Haverhill, Ipswich, Lowell, Lynn, Lynnfield, Somerville, Medford, Malden Manchester, Marblehead, Methuen, Middleton, North Andover, Peabody, Reading, Revere, Saugus, Stoneham, Salem, Tewksbury, Topsfield, Wakefield, Wilmington, Woburn, Swampscott and Winchester.
The agency closed nearly 500 transactions and achieved more than $200 million in sales volume.
“As the industry shifted, we realized we needed more to continue to deliver the quality service we were famous for,” said Dooley. “After a thorough search of our options, it became clear that Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate was a perfect fit.
“It’s a big company with the small company feel, where everyone pitches in to help. We are so excited to become part of the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices family. By joining Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate, we gain global recognition with a brand that has all the modern tools, technology and resources that we can implement on day one to help grow our business and better serve our customers and clients.”
The two principals and their team will join the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate family at their Reading office located at 360 North Main St. Their team will be known within Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate as The Dooley and Mason Realtor Group.
“We’re excited to go forward with the newest members of our growing brokerage,” said George Patsio, founding partner. “Judy and Lisa have done a phenomenal job of building their brand on the North Shore. We are confident that the combination of The Dooley and Mason Realtor Group and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Commonwealth Real Estate will be a major force throughout the region.”
