Calcagni Agents Tour Downtown New Haven Project – College & Crown

More than 100 REALTORS from Calcagni Real Estate were given a private tour of the construction site known as College & Crown in the heart of downtown New Haven.

Calcagni Real Estate was chosen by the site’s developer, Connecticut based Centerplan Development Company as College & Crown’s exclusive leasing broker for its 160 luxury apartment rentals, which range from studios to two-bedroom units. In addition to top-of-the-line finishes in each apartment, College & Crown residents will enjoy luxurious amenities including two private rooftop courtyards, state-of-the-art fitness center, exclusive underground parking, as well as convenient access to the 20,000 sq. ft. of retail space on the ground floor, which Centerplan is expected to fill with prime dining and shopping boutiques to compliment New Haven’s eclectic cultural scene.

College & Crown is expected to open in Summer 2015. Apartment leasing will be handled out of Calcagni’s new Leasing Office which will open this month. It is conveniently located at 195 College Street, directly across from the College & Crown complex.

Much to be thankful for in 2014

As we near the end of another outstanding year at Calcagni, our 150+ team members from our four offices gathered together at an  event at The Farms Country Club in Wallingford to reflect upon our successes this year and to look ahead to 2015.  Known in Connecticut as an industry leader in new homes sales, our ever-growing, dynamic team of REALTORs cheered loudly when Steve Calcagni announced that the new year promises to introduce many more growth opportunities for the company and its agents.   Farms collage

And if this news wasn’t inspiring enough, international lecturer Gabrielle Bernstein, named “a new thought leader” by Oprah, shared her own personal home buying insights and experiences with the group, followed by a spirited “Q & A” session that left everyone wanting more!

We have much to be thankful for at Calcagni Real Estate, and on the Eve of Thanksgiving there’s no time more fitting to say thank you to everyone who has made this past year so memorable for us and to wish everyone a holiday filled with much happiness.

Calcangi Commerical Inks Nine-Year Master Lease with Sacred Heart University

November 7, 2014 | Cheshire, CT – Far from the industry norm, and certainly not yet trendy, the way Calcagni Commercial Real Estate is brokering deals and creating value for properties is nothing short of forward thinking and smart, as evidenced by its latest deal, a nine-year master lease with Fairfield’s Sacred Heart University. Calcagni represented both sides of the transaction, resulting in the University’s lease of Pioneer Gardens, a 44-unit, 176-bed apartment building located at 51 Eckart Street in Bridgeport, just 0.4 miles from campus.

“It began as a pipe dream,” says Steven Calcagni, president of Calcagni Commercial Real Estate. “But, we knew a deal like this would be such an incredibly valuable opportunity for both the property owners and the University. We started with some baby steps, leasing a quarter of the building to Sacred Heart for one year, and ultimately got to complete a
marathon.”

Having managed Pioneer Gardens since 2009, Calcagni Commercial vice president Ralph Lewis had a comprehensive familiarity with the property as well as the needs of the University. Recognizing the compatibility of Pioneer Gardens with Sacred Heart’s long-term goals, Lewis pursued and secured the lease through 2023.

“Pioneer Gardens provides Sacred Heart with an opportunity to house 176 of our upper class students in close proximity to the campus and in a living situation that is conducive to what today’s college-aged students are looking for,” says Larry Wielk, Sacred Heart University dean of students. “This new long-term relationship allows us to move forward knowing that we will be able to satisfy the needs and demands of our growing student population. We are looking forward to continuing what has already been an excellent partnership.”

The deal is a win-win for Sacred Heart and property owner ACORN I of Hamden, Connecticut, in that the University maintains control of the building from an operational standpoint, filling a student housing void, and the owner has a guaranteed income regardless of any vacancies that may from time to time occur.

Representing both sides of a deal like this one is a shift for commercial real estate. But, for Calcagni, it results in something the company continually strives to achieve: value that didn’t exist previously. Working for both the lessor and lessee renders Calcagni a completely neutral party, able to understand and marry the best interests of both parties. That’s something not often seen in the industry.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CALCAGNI REAL ESTATE UNVEILS NEW WEBSITE

Local independent real estate brokerage announces the launch of their rebranded website

CHESHIRE, CT – March 20, 2013 – After months of research, planning, photo shoots, programming and testing, Calcagni Real Estate, Central Connecticut’s leading independent real estate brokerage, has finally unveiled their new website—www.calcagni.com. The newly redesigned site includes a fresh new look featuring local, unique photography of hidden treasures of our community, improved property search functionality with a Google Maps interface, new agent profile pages, and much more.

The new Calcagni.com was unveiled on Wednesday, March 20, at a company-wide meeting held at their Cheshire office. The site was created over the past several months as a joint collaboration between Calcagni’s marketing department and ‘Think Creative Group’, a local, woman-owned branding and marketing firm.

The timing for the new rebranded site couldn’t be more perfect, “Our new website and overall brand now truly reflect who we really are—the local real estate company that can serve our clients better because we’ve been rooted in the community for decades, know the market inside and out, and we care enough to invest in our local businesses—which means that the money we spend stays in the local community in which we live and work,” said Steven Calcagni, president.

Calcagni Real Estate has spent over 40 years getting to know their towns, building relationships with families and local businesses, and becoming part of the fabric of their community. The firm is continually investing in innovative online tools for their clients as well as for their agents, blending “old school” service with “new school technology.” “The improved functionality of our new website will enable our realtors to better serve their clients and will also help them to make the most of the Spring 2013 market—when I believe the real estate market will turn around,” said Calcagni.

Over the next few months, Calcagni Real Estate is excited to also roll out TV commercials, digital advertising campaigns, social media contests and more to continue to entrench their brand in the minds—and hearts—of their clients and neighbors.
