Big names in East Texas real estate join

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) – Thirty-one real estate agents are joining forces to tackle the housing market, by creating the largest firm in Lufkin.

A new sign is going up today at Century 21 Bryan Realty... which joins it with Coldwell Banker-Donovan real estate.

They say it's the largest real estate office in town with the largest share of the market.

The two were owned by the same parent company, and will now be under one roof, in a renovated office off loop 287.

They say local housing climate is fairly stable, but in a changing market comes consolidation.

"There's still some interest out there. I always tell everybody, every time someone gets married, gets divorced, has a baby, dies, gets fired, transferred, gets promoted, someone's moving up, down or sideways, so the market is not going to go away. We just have to go out there and get our share of the market," said Michael Bryan/Co-Owner Century 21 Bryan Realty.

The office will open Monday morning, and the public is invited to come by and check it out.
