Portland, ME Chris Gallagher has joined The Boulos Company team. Prior to joining Boulos, Gallagher worked for more than 20 years as director of acquisitions & commercial leasing at BNS Real Estate in New York. There, he was responsible for the company’s portfolio of over 1.5 million s/f of industrial, office, retail, and residential properties in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the Bronx.
“While Chris has worked in all aspects of the business, he brings particular depth and breadth of expertise from the owner’s perspective,” said Boulos managing director Drew Sigfridson. “We’re lucky to have him at this dynamic moment, as markets are shifting and change is everywhere.” Gallagher is the second broker from New York to join The Boulos Company in the past year, underscoring the trend away from larger metropolitan areas to smaller cities, like Portland.
“Greater Portland is a dynamic East Coast market with significant growth opportunities, and I’m incredibly excited to be working here,” said Gallagher. “With the shift toward a work-from-home culture and the growing appeal of regional hubs, Portland and the whole Maine market have become very attractive. I’m eager to help the city grow in a sustainable way. It’s also great to be back in Red Sox Nation.”
