General Brokerage: Since 1978, Otis & Ahearn has been actively involved in the neighborhoods of historic Boston. Otis & Ahearn, Inc. has been positioned to grow and expand with the dramatically changing market dynamics of the past 35 + years. Today, Otis & Ahearn, through its citywide network of 5 offices strategically located in major neighborhoods, boasts the largest and finest team of real estate professionals in downtown Boston.
The firm Otis & Ahearn, Inc. was formed when Kevin J. Ahearn, former principal and co-owner of The Hanlan Group, purchased the long-established firm of William F. Otis Real Estate. The Hanlan Group, formed in the 1970’s, was actively involved in the evolution of the Boston condominium market including all the downtown neighborhoods, Back Bay/Beacon Hill, South End, Waterfront/North End, Charlestown and Jamaica Plain. William F. Otis Real Estate served the Back Bay and Beacon Hill since the 1960’s; however, the Otis name in real estate dates back to the 1800’s. As a result, Otis & Ahearn brokers have experience, historical perspective, and broad market knowledge.
When the company was incorporated as Otis & Ahearn, Inc. in 1983, Kevin J. Ahearn expanded the new company based upon a balance of quality services and a professional reputation. Coupled with an aggressive expansion of service, Otis & Ahearn consistently achieves the highest market shares of the residential brokerage market in Boston.
