LYNN, MA— Katie and Al DiVirgilio, owners of RE/MAX 360 have acquired RE/MAX Advantage Real Estate, consisting of four offices across the North Shore. They bring local leadership and support to the agents who serve the area from the Beverly, Gloucester, Marblehead, and Peabody offices, as they have for their existing locations in Danvers and Lynn.
The DiVirgilio’s have both had impressive three-year careers with RE/MAX as Broker/Owners. Katie and Al joined RE/MAX Advantage in 2016 and in less than a year became partner owners of the Lynn, MA office. By 2018, they became sole owners and established their current brokerage, RE/MAX 360. In 2019, they were recognized by RE/MAX INTEGRA as Broker/Owners of the Year for Single Office Companies in New England.
Now, with this most recent acquisition, RE/MAX 360 will now serve the North Shore communities with over 70 agents who have helped their clients transact over $340,000,000 in real estate over the last year.
“We are excited about this new opportunity and look forward to providing these offices with localized support and leadership to help them grow their business. The former owner, Dan Twombly, has done incredible work at these brokerages and we are excited to continue this success. We have always held RE/MAX Advantage and their agents in the highest regard and look forward to working directly with their agents to achieve even greater success across Massachusetts,” said Katie DiVirgilio.
Dan Twombly, the previous owner of RE/MAX Advantage Real Estate shares, “I am thrilled with the local leadership and support the DiVirgilio’s will provide to these offices. Katie and Al have a wonderful track record of ownership in Massachusetts and I know these offices are in very capable hands.”
This will be the DiVirgilio’s biggest expansion to date and the second in 2020. By embracing the RE/MAX brand, tools, and systems, while focusing on agent support and marketing, they have grown quickly. They have also started a RE/MAX Commercial Division and use The RE/MAX Collection Luxury branding to bring an array of support and exposure for their company’s clientele.
“This is a pivotal time for RE/MAX 360,” says Fiona Petrie, RE/MAX INTEGRA EVP and Managing Director of US Operations. “This acquisition will greatly benefit clients and fuel opportunities for future growth across Massachusetts, and we are confident that these offices will see great success under Katie and Al’s leadership.”
