Corcoran Group LLC has entered the Seattle area housing market with the addition of its newest affiliate, Corcoran Lifestyle Properties, the company announced Tuesday.
The affiliate, owned and led by Stephanie and Keoki McCarthy, is based in Bothell.
“Establishing the brand in Washington state is a pivotal moment in growing our West Coast footprint, and I’m thrilled that we’re sharing in this milestone with Stephanie, Keoki and their very talented agents,” Corcoran Group CEO and President Pamela Liebman said in a news release. “The decision to enter Bothell and the greater Seattle area was a very intentional and strategic one. With all that the region has to offer in both eager clientele and being a beautiful place to live, I’m confident that Corcoran Lifestyle Properties will exemplify the best of the brand as we make a name for ourselves in Washington.”
Stephanie and Keoki McCarthy have been involved in the real estate industry for more than 20 years. They started their own firm, McCarthy Real Estate, in 2001 and previously were linked with Real Living Northwest Realtors.
“Corcoran’s brand, particularly as a woman-run business, is completely in line with who we are and what we stand for,” Stephanie McCarthy said. “We are a boutique operation that invests a lot of time in our marketing and how the client feels — so we were incredibly excited to be the first firm to bring the Corcoran brand to the state of Washington.”
The Corcoran Group has 5,700 salespeople and 160 offices in New York, South Florida and its growing affiliate network.
“We are based just minutes from Seattle — a metropolitan market with global appeal — and are thrilled to be joining forces with a group that will allow us to grow our brand in a way we haven’t been able to do before,” Keoki McCarthy said.
