Goggins Real Estate Acquisition/Merger
Brian Megliola, owner of Coldwell Banker Community Realtors has announced the acquisition and merger of Goggins Real Estate, combining two of the longest running family-owned real estate companies in Franklin-Hampshire counties. The 112 Main St, Northampton office of Coldwell Banker Community Realtors will be the main office for the residential company. Coldwell Banker’s Commerical division will move to the present Goggins office at 79 King St., Northampton. This separate franchise with Coldwell Banker Commercial will also have an important name change to “Coldwell Banker Commercial- Goggins Associates.” Megliola stated “We felt it was important to continue the legacy that Pat has created in commercial real estate in the Northampton area and fitting to rename our Commercial company to include the Goggins name”. Pat will continue on as the Manager of the commercial side. “ I plan to remain very active in real estate and look forward to running the commercial company”, said Pat Goggins. “I look forward to this new partnership, as it enhances our ability to provide even better service to our clients with the added tools and systems we will now have available to us through Coldwell Banker” said Goggins. “They are an impressive organization and bring a lot to the table, both for our residential clients and our commercial ones”.
The history of these two companies goes back many decades. Goggins started his real estate company back in 1982, providing over 40 years of exceptional service. Goggins has handled some of the Northampton areas’ biggest residential developments, including Bear Hill, Village Hill, Parson’s Brook, Baker Hill, and is presently handling the new development Hawley Manor on Hawley St. in downtown Northampton. Pat has a strong reputation in the Commercial marketplace as well, handing many of Northamptons’ biggest commercial deals over the years.
Christine Aubrey, former owner and present Broker of Coldwell Banker Community Realtors opened their first office in 1988 with Steve Upton, a developer in South Deerfield. They were first known as Upton and May Real Estate. They later franchised with Coldwell Banker in 2006 and have grown to 4 offices, located in Northampton, South Deerfield, Shelburne Falls and Amherst. They also have a commercial office in Greenfield. They too have handled many residential developments throughout Franklin and Hampshire counties including Emerson Way, Silvercrest, Ridgecrest, most of the condominium developments in South Deerfield and currently The Residences in Shelburne Falls.
Brian Megliola will be the sole owner of Coldwell Banker Community Realtors and Coldwell Banker Commercial- Goggins Associates, and will oversee all aspects of the new entity. Besides Brian, there are 9 other full time support staff and a total of 45 agents, many of whom have been REALTORS for over 25 years. The name “Coldwell Banker Community Realtors” will remain as the name of the residential real estate company. “Pat, Christine and I share a strong commitment to the communities we serve and feel that name speaks to our style of doing business. We have all been very active in supporting our communities and although we have a national brand that brings us a higher level of service for our agents and clients, we are still a locally owned company that has deep roots here in the Valley. That will never change” says Megliola.
