Brick & Barn Real Estate Group Expands to Portsmouth, NH

Portsmouth’s newest Real Estate Company, Brick & Barn Real Estate Group, brings a concierge approach to residential and commercial real estate as well as design and project management.

Brick & Barn Real Estate Group, Portsmouth’s newest real estate company, recently opened its doors at 51 Islington Street. While the company is new to the Seacoast area, Brick & Barn Real Estate Group is a long-established Vermont-based company that has been providing home buyers and sellers with expert services for nearly 50 years.

Since its establishment in 1968, in Quechee, VT, Brick & Barn Real Estate Group, has been helping people navigate the home buying and selling process in the New Hampshire and Vermont Upper Valley Area. With the recent expansion to Portsmouth, the company will now bring their trademark concierge real estate services to buyers and sellers throughout the New Hampshire Seacoast and Southern Maine.                                                          Brick & Barn's New Office

"Expanding to the Seacoast of New Hampshire and Southern Maine was a natural progression for us,” explained longtime Portsmouth resident and Brick & Barn Real Estate Group owner, Scott Rome, who bought the business with his partner Herb Hart earlier this year. “This area is vibrant and abounds with charm,” he added.  “We expanded here to bring our unique approach, fresh perspective, cutting-edge technology, and high-touch customer service to representing buyers and sellers in the Seacoast market.”

In addition to guiding home buyers and sellers through what is oftentimes their most significant financial investment, Brick & Barn Real Estate Group also provides commercial real estate brokerage services and boasts an in-house, full- service design and project management division.

Through a strategic partnership with The Look Interiors, the company manages residential and commercial design projects from conception to completion, including architectural design, landscape design, sub-contracting, project management, purchasing, decor, and installation. Previous nationwide projects include The National Hotel in Miami, The House of Blues in Chicago and Atlanta, The Saban Theater in Beverly Hills, CA and The Rose in Pasadena, CA.

“We’re thrilled to be bringing our passion for real estate and design to the Seacoast,” Rome said.

    Brick & Barn Real Estate Group Now Offering 3D and Virtual Reality Walkthrough of Home Listings

    When was the last time you looked at a real estate site searching for your own property or just browsing to see what was for sale in your neighborhood or town?  Ever have difficulty understanding the layout of the house or wondered if the pictures truly represent what the property looks like in person?  How about going to look at a house and finding out the pictures were taken with a wide-angle lens and the house is much smaller than you thought? 

    These are all common challenges in the house hunting game.  But it doesn’t have to be anymore! 

    Brick & Barn Real Estate Group has started using a Matterport 3D camera to scan our listings in a dimensionally accurate 3D model – exactly how the human eye would view it.  From your desktop, laptop, tablet, or phone, you can self-guide yourself through the entire house, at your own pace, viewing each room at any angle, as if you are walking through it in real time. 

    Taking it a step further, Brick & Barn is also using virtual reality headset to allow buyers to have a completely immersive 360-degree walkthrough of our listings. 

    Check out a 3D experience of Brick & Barn’s corporate headquarters in Quechee, Vermont. 

    2D photographs, videos, and drone footage all have its important place in marketing real estate.  But using Matterport’s technology and placing people directly in homes is the future for buying and selling real estate.

    Contact Brick & Barn Real Estate Group to learn more about Matterport 3D and how we can help you market your properties to get the best exposure and experience for your property.  VT: 802 295 7525  NH: 603 560 3411
