For the second time in six months, Halsey Thrasher Harpole Real Estate Group is merging with another real estate company to expand its representation of clients in northeast Arkansas.
The principals of Halsey Thrasher Harpole and Re/Max Real Estate Centre made their announcement Thursday, and their merger is effective immediately.
“We are so excited to have the ownership and agents of Re/Max Real Estate Centre in Jonesboro become part of our organization,” Jerry Halsey Jr., managing partner and executive broker at Halsey Thrasher Harpole, said in a news release. “They have a rich history of superior production and customer service in this market, and we have been working with their ownership for the past several weeks to make sure that we had a smooth and exciting transition. We are thrilled at the expertise and skills they bring to our team.”
The company will not be retaining the Re/Max franchise moving forward. Its agents will become part of Halsey Thrasher Harpole.
Julie Webbe, a principal in Re/Max Real Estate Centre, said in the release, “We all feel that we can learn from one another by drawing on both companies’ experiences. In the end, the real winners will be the buyers and sellers of real estate in this market, because we are convinced the level of service we can all bring together is stronger than it was when we were separate.”
“We think we have a bright future ahead,” Halsey said. “The combined sales production of our organizations last year was right at $150 million dollars, and that did not include commercial leases. We are anxious for everyone to get settled in and to offer the best service possible to our customers and tenants.”
Halsey Thrasher Harpole has close to 300 acres in development and is ranked in the top 10 largest property management firms in the state. With this merger and its October 2019 merger with Upstage Real Estate, the firm will employ about 50 licensed agents, including commercial leasing agents and property managers.
