Residential brokerage consolidation is coming to Connecticut. Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England, New York and Westchester Properties has snapped up Wilton-based real estate firm Realty Seven, which was founded in 1978. As part of the merger, noted by Patch and several other local news websites, Realty Seven’s 22 agents will join Berkshire Hathaway. In a statement, Realty Seven owner and broker Peg Koellmer called the merger “the best opportunity to provide our team the resources and support to take client services to the next level.” The merger wasn’t the only one Connecticut saw at the end of May. In its own release, Washington Depot-based Klemm Real Estate said it had acquired Fahey Associates, Realtors, in Litchfield. “We are so thrilled to merge another legendary family firm into our fold,” president and co-owner Graham Klemm said in a statement. Before to this acquisition, Klemm said it had also acquired local firms Tierney Realty and Pepper Scholl. [Patch]
