ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, the leading luxury brokerage along Florida’s East Coast, announces the acquisition of top real estate brokerage National Realty of Brevard. As part of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty’s strategic expansion aimed at attracting leading industry talent, the brokerage will onboard National Realty’s CEO Gale S. Bray and her 76 associates to their unrivaled global network.
“National Realty has a 50+ year heritage with a pristine reputation for excellence, and we are proud to welcome them to the ONE SIR family,” said Daniel de la Vega, President of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty. “I’m confident this talented team of agents will continue to lead the market and build on the strength and momentum within Brevard County.”
Founded in 1965 by the late Wesley A. Bray with one office in Melbourne, National Realty built a trusted reputation for delivering an exceptional real estate experience, and quickly expanded across Brevard County. Gale S. Bray took over the business in 1988 with a promise to build on her father’s legacy.
“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.”
Covering Brevard County from Titusville to Grant, National Realty achieved over $130 million in sales volume last year with a record 25%+ increase for 2021 to date. The company’s long standing success spans across residential and commercial sales in addition to property management.
“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.”
This is the firm’s seventh recent acquisition and brings the brokerage’s total number of offices to 22 locations spanning from Miami to Cocoa Village.
