Bronx Realtors Group Merges with Hudson Gateway

The Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors (HGAR) is merging with the Bronx-Manhattan North Association of Realtors (BMNAR). In total, HGAR will now have nearly 1,500 members in the Bronx.

As a result of the merger, the Bronx Chapter of HGAR has been created. Eliezer Rodriguez, BMNAR’s CEO, has joined HGAR to assist with the expanded organization’s legislative advocacy agenda and the development of a stronger Commercial and Investment Division (CID).

Rodriquez now serves as HGAR’s director, advocacy, commercial and legislative issues for Bronx and Manhattan. Vincent Buccieri, BMNAR’s 2020 President, will now serve as the Bronx regional director on HGAR’s board of directors.

“We are thrilled to officially welcome the Bronx to HGAR and look forward to expanding our presence there,” said Richard Haggerty, CEO of HGAR. “With its proximity to the Lower Hudson Valley, this is a natural step that will greatly benefit all of our members.”
