Andrew Mitchell & Company Merges With ERA Key Realty Services

Andrew Mitchell & Company of Marion has merged with ERA Key, providing ERA Key with a Boston presence and additional agents. 

Stephen Thornton, the Boston-based principal broker for Andrew Mitchell, will join ERA Key along with many of his agency’s 22 Realtors. The merger will provide Andrew Mitchell agents with access to advanced technology and tools, as well as opportunities for additional training. Stephen Thornton

ERA Key, which merged with HUNT Real Estate in 2018, is the number one agency out of 2,400 worldwide in the ERA Key Franchise System. It is among the top 10 agencies in Massachusetts, based on sales volume. 

Andrew Mitchell, which was founded in 2011, is a virtual agency that focuses on working with experienced agents and providing them with a structure to “create their own work-life balance,” according to Thornton. Because of its virtual structure, its market covers much of Eastern and Central Massachusetts, so some agents can join ERA Key offices in their community. 

“Our agents have the knowledge and experience to gain the maximum benefit from ERA Key’s online sales tools and other resources,” Thornton said. “These tools have helped ERA Key grow into one of the state’s most successful real estate agencies — and they will also help our agents become even more successful.” 

“Mergers work best when both parties recognize and strive for mutual goals that will benefit everyone involved,” said ERA Key President and COO Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor. “This is very much a mutually beneficial partnership. Andrew Mitchell is known for attracting experienced, successful agents and the merger expands our market reach.”

Milford's Victor Rosas, Kim Poirier Sell Historic Spite House

Spite House

Victor Rosas and Kim Poirier recently sold the historic Spite House. The story below appeared in The Milford Daily News.

Milford's historic and oddly-shaped Spite House now for rent

MILFORD — When attorney Warren Heller owned the curious-looking building on the corner of Exchange and Congress streets, he had to outfit the entire interior with custom furniture.

“There were no square or rectangular walls,” he said. “Every one had some unique shape.”

Built in 1899, the so-called Spite House at 61 Exchange St. had nine rooms, only one of which contained four corners. The window frames were handmade to fit the curves of the walls, Heller said. The three-story building comprises 2,462 square feet but sits on a lot measuring just 0.028 acres (about 1,220 square feet).Victor Rosas

“It received its name because of the small lot on which it stands,” the building’s entry in the Massachusetts’ Historical Commission’s database reads. “People told (the original owner) it was impossible to place a house on it.”

Heller worked out of the building for 40 years, some of that with his father, who ran a podiatrist practice. In September, he sold 61 Exchange St. to an Ashland-based company, Carige LLC, which converted it to two apartments, back to its residential roots.

The renovation from office space to apartments was recently completed, and the space was rented out last month, local real estate agent Victor Rosas said.

It still has just one square room.
