Chicago, IL (9/29/10) – One of Long Island’s most dominant real estate companies for over four decades has been selected as the newest member of Chicago-based Leading Real Estate Companies of the World®.

“Laffey Fine Homes, with 12 locations, over 500 agents and one billion dollars in annual sales, is now a LeadingRE affiliate,” announced Emmett Laffey, the firm’s chief executive. “Being among the world’s elite independent real estate brokerages is where the Laffey organization belongs.”

Pam O’Connor, president/CEO of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® states, “Laffey is a marquee brand on Long Island. Their impressive history and dynamic leadership, coupled with their superior online strategies and initiatives, makes them a desired addition to LeadingRE.”

Laffey Fine Homes has also joined Luxury Portfolio Fine Property Collection®, an elite group of 200 companies within LeadingRE catering to the world’s luxury property owners. Luxury Portfolio markets more listings over $1 Million than any other luxury real estate network.

“Luxury Portfolio was paramount to us joining LeadingRE,” said Mr. Laffey. “It’s unmatched in the global arena. Their online inventory of over $35 billion in luxury homes and the amazing amount of high net worth visitors that utilize www.luxuryportfolio.com will further drive more affluent online buyers to Laffey.” He added, “We have one of the highest average sales prices in New York, so Luxury Portfolio will serve our clientele well.”
