By: via PR Newswire

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Orion Group today announced Orion Real Estate and its partnership with Side, the only real estate brokerage that exclusively partners with high-performing agents, teams, and independent brokerages to transform them into boutique brands and businesses. The collaboration will ensure that Orion Real Estate, known for its community-minded ethos and expertise in residential and commercial real estate, is powered by the most advanced platform in the industry.

Established by E.J. Hawkins, a leader in the multi-family and mixed-use development market, Orion Real Estate has more than 50 years of combined experience and has managed upwards of $600 million in transactions. The firm is based in Los Angeles and serves a wide clientele, from first-time buyers to investors to developers.

Partnering with Side will ensure Orion Real Estate remains at the cutting edge of the evolving real estate market while allowing its agents to continue delivering premium services to their clients. Orion Real Estate agents are fully supported by a one-of-a-kind premium brokerage platform, which provides transaction management, property marketing, lead generation, business growth opportunities, vendor management, and infrastructure solutions.

Of his decision to align his firm with Side, Hawkins said, "For the last few years, our biggest obstacle was trying to manage production while running a company. Side's state-of-the-art platform ensures that our clients have streamlined experiences, while maximizing our potential for production, growth and recruiting. Best of all, partnering with Side frees me up to focus my energy on leadership, creativity, and productivity, instead of on the minute—but important—details of back-office operations."

Side is led by experienced industry professionals and world-class engineers who develop technology designed to improve agent productivity and enhance the client experience. Based on its belief that homeownership is a fundamental human right, Side is on a mission to improve the public good by providing top-performing real estate agents, teams, and indie brokerages with the best system, support, service, experience, and results.
