ONE Sotheby’s International Realty has acquired top real estate brokerage National Realty of Brevard. As part of the deal, ONE Sotheby’s will onboard National Realty CEO Gale S. Bray and her 76 associates.
“National Realty has a 50-plus-year heritage with a pristine reputation for excellence and we are proud to welcome them to the ONE SIR family,” One Sotheby’s International Realty President Daniel de la Vega said in a press release. “I’m confident this talented team of agents will continue to lead the market and build on the strength and momentum within Brevard County.”
National Realty was founded in 1965 by the late Wesley A. Bray. His daughter, Gale Bray, took over the business in 1988.
“My father always believed in running the business with integrity,” said Bray. “We share a similar brand culture with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty and there is a synergy in the way we operate with our agents; we are a family.”
National Realty closed $130 million in sales volume last year. It has grown 25% so far this year, the release said.
“Over the years, I have been approached by different brokerages looking to acquire our company, but it was never the right fit until now,” said Bray. “ONE Sotheby’s International Realty has an unmatched global brand, but at its core is a family business where every agent matters. I am thrilled for our team to leverage the company’s world-class network, tools and technology to take their business to the next level.”
The acquisition of National Realty makes 22 total locations for leading luxury brokerage ONE Sotheby’s, which spans from Miami to Cocoa Village.
