Local real estate firms ERA Team VP Real Estate of Chautauqua and Ellicottville and Century 21 Unlimited of Cuba have merged operations.
The combined firm will conduct business as ERA Team VP Real Estate with its Cuba office located at 84 Maple St., Cuba, according to Bill Soffel, ERA Team VP broker and chief executive officer.
ERA Team VP has more than 20 years of experience in the Chautauqua and Cattaraugus county markets and Century 21 Unlimited has more than 15 years of experience in the Cattaraugus and Allegany county markets. Clients and customers of both firms will now benefit from a much broader marketing and networking reach, covering the entire Southern Tier.

"Attention to consumer needs has always been a trademark of both our real estate firms," Soffel said. "Now we will be able to deliver our commitment to service to our customers from 6 convenient office locations throughout the Southern Tier of Western New York and fully leverage the ERA core values of innovation, collaboration and superior service."
Brokers Bill Soffel and Linda Simons said they share a very similar outlook on the importance of professionalism and ethics within the real estate profession and have been active within the real estate industry, at both the local and state level.
Both national franchises are within the same parent organization, the Realogy Corporation, the world's largest real estate franchise network.
"While Century 21 and ERA share many of the same marketing and training tools, ERA's main focus is on innovation and technology,'' Soffel said. "With the real estate market continuing to shift toward web-based technologies, this focus will be a huge advantage to our clients and customers."
