Following a more than two-decade-long stint with Coldwell Banker, the Boston-based Cort Petrocelli Coopersmith Team has changed its alliance to Compass, the brokerage exclusively told Inman.

The luxury team spent 24 years cultivating its clientele with Coldwell Banker, specializing in some of Boston’s most desirable neighborhoods, including Back Bay, Beacon Hill and South End as well as Cape Cod and the islands.

In 2022, the team traded $80 million in real estate transactions. Year-to-date it earned recognition as the No. 2 Coldwell Banker Small Team in New England by closed sales.

Brigitte Petrocelli leads the team, which also includes Jeanine Cort and Colleen Coopersmith. In 2022, Petrocelli ranked No. 32 in the state of Massachusetts as an individual agent by sales volume, with $67.23 million in sales volume, according to the latest RealTrends America’s Best rankings.

On Thursday, Compass CEO Robert Reffkin took to Instagram to share his in-person office visit to welcome the new team.

Following its extended tenure with Coldwell Banker, the team was inspired to move to Compass to better serve their clients with the brokerage’s technology platform, among other reasons, an email from Compass stated.

“Our decision to join Compass reflects our unwavering commitment to delivering exceptional service and staying at the forefront of the industry,” the team said in a statement emailed to Inman. “Compass offers us an opportunity to leverage cutting-edge technology while maintaining a thriving team culture. This move allows us to confidently embrace the future, knowing that we can provide our clients with the highest level of expertise and a seamless real estate experience.”

One of Cort Petrocelli Coopersmith Team’s newly acquired listings that will hit the market next week is a $31 million historic property at 56 Beacon Street that dates back to 1819. The property also traded hands earlier this year for $28.25 million, setting a record for priciest single-family home ever to be sold in Boston.

Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that 56 Beacon Street’s construction dated back to the late 1700s and that it briefly served as the Massachusetts State House, but the property was constructed in 1819 and was never affiliated with the Massachusetts State House.
