ERA Key Among Top Places to Work in Massachusetts for Seventh Time
ERA Key Realty Services has been named among the top places to work in the state for the seventh time, based on a survey administered by Energage for The Boston Globe.
ERA Key placed 10th in the large company category. The agency, which has 15 offices throughout central and eastern Massachusetts, did not participate in the survey in 2020, but made the list for five consecutive years from 2015 through 2019 and again in 2021.
The Top Places to Work survey of more than 80,000 employees at 363 companies asked questions based on factors such as company leadership, compensation and training, and workplace flexibility. Responses were anonymous.
President and Chief Operating Officer Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor credited the company’s core values for helping to create a workplace where agents and staff consider it to be one of the best places to work in Massachusetts. ERA Key’s core values include teamwork, hard work, giving back to the community, seeking solutions, acting with integrity and having fun.
“It’s an honor for ERA Key to be among the 150 companies in all industries to be included among the Top Places to Work,” Eidinger-Taylor said. “Being a top workplace helps us to attract some of the industry’s top Realtors. We provide our Realtors with the tools to succeed, which is why we have also succeeded.”
She added that ERA Key provides agents and staff with the training programs and tools they need to achieve the best results for themselves and for their customers.
Eidinger-Taylor said ERA Key’s approach has played a key role in the agency’s rapid growth. ERA Key now has 370 agents and more than $1 billion in annual sales.
ERA Key is among the top 10 agencies in Massachusetts, based on sales volume, and is among the top 10 franchises out of more than 2,400 worldwide in the ERA Franchise System. ERA Key won the Momentum Award as the fastest growing ERA franchise in 2012 and the Gene Francis Memorial Award as the Top All-Around Company in ERA in 2014 and again in 2018, when it shared the award with HUNT Real Estate ERA. ERA Key merged with HUNT Real Estate ERA in February 2018, but it maintains its separate identity.
