The day is not yet over and there is more news about high producing agents migrating to different brokers.
Allie Beth Allman & Associates announced today that the top-producing Susan Baldwin Group, led by Susan Baldwin, has joined Allie Beth Allman & Associates, “building on the luxury real estate boutique’s strong foundation of client service, cutting-edge marketing and entrepreneurship.”
“I’ve admired Susan for years, and I’m excited her team is joining the ABA family,” said CEO Allie Beth Allman. “We’re fortunate to have a leader who is so focused on delivering for her clients, and we welcome her entrepreneurial spirit.”
Susan’s team includes agents Fiona Richards and Missy Townsend.
Susan, who is one of our partner agents, tells me she closed a transaction with Allie Beth this summer and the real estate legend, so impressed with Susan’s style, asked if she would “ever consider working with us at Allie Beth Allman?”
“I have been at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s for 16 years, and I loved it, I was really very happy,” says Susan. “Robbie Briggs is just the best. ABA is really the same kind of company that Briggs is — fabulous independent boutique firms, each headed by namesake real estate icons from whom you learn so much. It was certainly not dissatisfaction — I just thought change would be good for my listings. As I thought about it, it all came together. Everyone was very supportive. ”
She is taking her listings with her. Susan, who began her career partnering with Ginger Nobles at Briggs — who can ever forget their adorable ad branding on a tandem bicycle until they got all hip on us and went for the green tandem motorcycle — says Ginger Nobles will remain at Briggs Freeman. The two are close friends.
“I’ve had a very warm welcome here on my second day at Allie Beth Allman, and also an offer on one of my listings,” says Susan. ” I so admire Allie Beth as a person and a broker, and the team of agents who work with her are simply stellar. I think it’s going to be great for me, and most vitally, great for my clients.”
