A local Realtor has joined forces with an international relocation specialist in an effort to better serve the relocation needs of those employees and corporations looking for housing in the Newington area.

Cendant Mobility Services Corp., a Danbury-based relocation firm that provides relocation services internationally, has entered into an agreement with ERA Sargis-Breen, a real estate brokerage based in Newington. The new agreement grants ERA Sargis-Breen the status of associate broker for Cendant Mobility.

Under the agreement, ERA Sargis-Breen will have the opportunity to manage Cendant Mobility’s corporate properties within the Newington market area. The agreement was finalized earlier this month.

W. Bruce Wallin, president of the Cendant Mobility Broker Network, said, “This agreement demonstrates our commitment to providing the highest level of service from our broker alliances. ERA Sargis-Breen is just one of the many outstanding brokerage firms which have joined our organization and we look forward to working with them in the years to come.”

Sam Sargis, president of ERA Sargis-Breen said, “We are excited to have this relationship with Cendant Mobility. As the undisputed leader in the mobility industry, the expertise and know-how they can offer to us as an associate broker will allow us to even better serve our clients in the Newington area we cover.”

The way the agreement will work, Sargis explained, is that a customer goes through Cendant Mobility’s Relocation Services Department and then Cendant Mobility will contact ERA Sargis-Breen to help place the customer in the Newington area. Often that can include large corporations looking to place several employees in the suburban Hartford area, or simply one employee needed to relocate.

Relocation is a service that ERA Sargis-Breen has routinely provided from time to time in past, but it previously spread the business out over several different companies. Under the new agreement, the brokerage is strictly aligned with Cendant Mobility.

ERA Sargis-Breen handles 13 communities comprising the suburban Hartford market.

Cendant Mobility provides corporate and government relocation, international assignment and consulting services, affinity programs and asset management services. The firm has more than 1,700 clients worldwide and has assisted in more than 100,000 employee transfers since 1997.

Globally, Cendant services 92 countries and 300 cities.
