ONE Sotheby’s International Realty acquires National Realty

National Realty of Brevard brings 76 sales associates to the Sotheby's firm.

ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, on Florida’s East Coast recently acquired National Realty of Brevard. As part of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty’s strategic expansion, the brokerage will onboard National Realty’s CEO Gale S. Bray and her 76 associates to their global network.

Founded in 1965 by the late Wesley A. Bray with one office in Melbourne, National Realty quickly expanded across Brevard County. Gale S. Bray took over the business in 1988 with a promise to build on her father’s legacy.

“My father always believed in running the business with integrity,” said Bray. “We share a similar brand culture with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty and there is a synergy in the way we operate with our agents, we are a family.”

Covering Brevard County from Titusville to Grant, National Realty achieved over $130 million in sales volume last year with a record 25%+ increase for 2021 to date.

“Over the years I have been approached by different brokerages looking to acquire our company but it was never the right fit until now,” said Bray. “ONE Sotheby’s International Realty has an unmatched global brand, but at its core is a family business where every agent matters. I am thrilled for our team to leverage the company’s world-class network, tools and technology to take their business to the next level.”

This is the firm’s seventh recent acquisition and brings the brokerage’s total number of offices to 22 locations spanning from Miami to Cocoa Village.
