Franchise real estate brokerage Re/Max of New England has opened its first office inside a Stop & Shop supermarket, the brokerage company has announced.

The brokerage signed an exclusive, five-year deal with Quincy, Mass.-based Stop & Shop Supermarket Co., one of the largest supermarket chains in New England, in January 2010. With more than a dozen "micro" offices planned, the brokerage had originally intended to have the first office open within four months.

"Given the sluggish economy, we were diligent about choosing the location and broker-owner that would best fit our new model. We expect the opening of more micro-offices to follow in the coming months," said Christine George, spokesperson for Re/Max of New England.

The 250-square-foot office is located at 1600 Boston Road in Springfield, Mass.

"This unique opportunity will provide Stop & Shop customers with a one-stop shopping experience where they can meet face-to-face with … Re/Max agents at a time and place that is convenient during their busy lives," said Andy Armata, broker-owner of Chelmsford, Mass.-based Re/Max Prestige, which owns the new office.
