Mike Gallagher, Broker/Owner of the RE/MAX Real Estate Center offices in Massachusetts, has acquired the 28-agent RE/MAX Central office in Coventry, Rhode Island, previously owned by Tom Clarkin, and will rebrand the office to RE/MAX Real Estate Center. This acquisition is the second for Mike this year; in September, Mike acquired RE/MAX Home in Taunton, MA. This acquisition also marks Mike’s expansion into Rhode Island and makes RE/MAX Real Estate Center one of the largest RE/MAX companies in New England.
Mike is a prominent figure in the local real estate market, getting his start when he was just 19 years old and purchasing his first RE/MAX office at 25. Over his 30+ year career, Mike has continued to find new ways to grow his company and help agents achieve their goals. With this acquisition, Mike is excited to expand his company’s footprint from south of Boston to central Rhode Island.
“As soon as I met Tom, I knew it was a great fit. Finding a company with RE/MAX Central’s reputation and productivity is not easy,” says Mike Gallager. “I am looking forward to working with Tom and his group of agents, and to help foster their success for many years to come.”
Tom will remain with RE/MAX Real Estate Center and will be in charge of agent development and recruitment. Tom says he too is excited about this acquisition and joining forces with Mike. “Mike and I had great rapport right from the start. The fact that he was very familiar with the RE/MAX brand and owns and operates several other successful RE/MAX offices just made the decision that much easier,” says Tom. “I’m looking forward to watching the next chapter unfold for RE/MAX Real Estate Center and our Agents.”
“This is an exciting time for Mike and RE/MAX Real Estate Center” says Fiona Petrie, RE/MAX INTEGRA EVP and Managing Director of US Operations. “With more than 25 years as a RE/MAX Broker/Owner, Mike knows how to help mentor agents and get them to the next level in their careers. This is a pivotal step forward for both brokerages and we can’t wait to see what they achieve together.”
