ERA® Affiliated Brokerage Expands Presence in Big Horn Mountain Region With Acquisition

May 22, 2024 // Franchising.com // Sheridan, W.Y. - ERA Carroll Realty, based in Sheridan, Wyoming, has acquired Buffalo Realty in Buffalo, Wyoming, which is now doing business as Buffalo Realty ERA Powered. The move connects two markets serving the Big Horn Mountain region, increasing ERA Carroll Realty’s service area and market share.

Buffalo Realty ERA Powered is a market firm that has served its community since 2010, working with clients on all types of properties including residential, multi-family, commercial, ranches, farms and land.

Founded in 1913, ERA Carroll Realty is owned by Tom Belus and Janelle Crivello. Belus, the majority owner and president, assumed an ownership interest in 2001. With more than 30 years of real estate experience, Belus is widely known for his expertise in ranch and rural as well as residential properties. Active in his community, Belus has served on the Sheridan City Council, Sheridan Area Water Supply Joint Powers Board, Wyoming Association of Municipalities, National League of Cities and the Sheridan County School District 2 Board of Trustees and currently serves on the Whitney Benefits board. Crivello, who has a decade of real estate experience, assumed an ownership interest in 2021. She is also active in the community serving on the WYO Rodeo Board and as a volunteer for other organizations.

Belus’ expansion is fueled by a desire to establish an enhanced presence in a region that is attractive as a primary and secondary home market thanks to its low cost of living and high quality of life. The area is popular with tourists who are on their way to Yellowstone National Park.

“We’ve planted our roots here and have developed close relationships with the communities that we serve. Over the years, we have had the pleasure of working with our Buffalo colleagues to the south, who have always shared our values and culture of collaboration. We are excited to be unified as a team, working together to support our clients with exceptional service,” said Belus.

In addition to creating an expanded service area, this acquisition will also help boost agent productivity and provide a more streamlined work environment for the company’s affiliated agents who will benefit from the ERA® brand’s enhanced tools and services, sophisticated marketing programs and assets, extensive professional development resources and a global referral network.

Cristy Kinghorn, the former owner of Buffalo Realty, is excited to return to her true passion of working with clients. “I’m incredibly excited by the opportunity to join forces with Tom and the ERA Carroll Realty so we can capitalize on new opportunities together as a unified company.”
