On April 22, 2015, The Higgins Group celebrated their 18th year anniversary. The independently operated real estate brokerage has been serving Fairfield County buyers and sellers since the late 1990’s, and continues to this day to be one of the leading real estate firms in Connecticut.
The Higgins Group has made several breakthroughs over the past couple of years, earning a reputation as not only the best, but also one of the most creative brokerages in the state. It all started with Rick Higgins, who, with his drive and real estate expertise, established the firm without letting go of his proclivity for innovation. Three years after its foundation, Christie’s International Real Estate took notice of The Higgins Group and invited the company to be their exclusive affiliate in the Westport/Fairfield region.
The Higgins Group pioneered the use of cinematic video as a marketing tool in Connecticut real estate, and the company’s creative business model has brought the firm success in home sales. The Higgins Group has come a long way; from one man’s vision, it has grown into a real estate brokerage that today employs around 500 highly trained and dedicated sales associates.
The success that the firm has so far achieved has only spurred it to strive for more. With 18 years of real estate expertise under its belt, the firm promises to be stronger and more innovative than ever.
As Chairman and Founder Rick Higgins puts it:
“We are always looking for the next big innovation out there. We were the first to use aerial mapping technology, the first to use music videos and the first to utilize Facebook Marketplace. Our team finds ‘it’ and develops it before anyone else has it. When they catch up, we move on to the next ‘big idea.’ The reason we are the fastest growing real estate company in Connecticut is because we are creative and fast moving.”
