 Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England and Westchester Properties recently announced the opening of its residential brokerage office at 22 Purchase St. in downtown Rye.

The office is led by Harrison resident Margaret Grasso, whose family-owned house construction business in New Rochelle operates a satellite office at the same Rye address. With her husband, Jeff, Grasso will continue to oversee sales of Grasso Development projects while leading the brokerage, according to Berkshire Hathaway.

Grasso in the announcement said the Purchase Street office “provides us with a centralized location for our clients and agents” in serving Rye, Harrison, Rye Brook and surrounding communities.

Headquartered in Wallingford, Conn., Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties became one of the Berkshire Hathaway network’s first affiliates when it transitioned from Prudential Real Estate in September 2013. The brokerage has since become the network’s sixth-largest affiliate for volume and expanded into Westchester County last July with the opening of offices in Eastchester, Scarsdale and Larchmont.

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England and Westchester Properties has 53 offices and more than 1,800 Realtors in Westchester, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.
