Grounded by the collaborative ethos of the independent brand, Boston Realty Advisors promotes BRA Ignite, a series of quarterly events on the company calendar. BRA Ignite endorses synergy and collaboration within the diverse platform taking the form of Philanthropic, Educational, and Social events; the pillars of Boston Realty Advisors. Founding partner, Jason S. Weissman opened the 2020 kickoff of BRA Ignite by celebrating 19-years of business. Mr. Weissman thanked his partners and all employees and brokers for playing a role in the company’s success. He wasted no time and declared that, “2020 will be our strongest year ever.”
The CEO recapped the core fundamentals of BRA Ignite, revealing that the unique combination of teamwork, education and philanthropy is the key to success. Jason explained that he lives by a simple mantra of, “Doing well by doing good,” a philosophy for all to borrow and internalize both in and out of the office.
Professionally, Mr. Weissman said, “Doing well by doing good is always doing what is best for our clients – a core differentiator of our brand.” He explained that we are hired to use our market intel and cumulative experience to provide the very best advise throughout the entire lifecycle of an engagement and at all economic periods. For example he said, “If it’s a good time to sell an asset, we carefully relay the message. If we deem it’s not the ideal time to sell, we still advise accordingly. In every and each instance, when we help our clients win, we win too.”
When out of the office, the founder of the largest independent brokerage company in Massachusetts emphasized the value of aligning oneself with a special cause issue – saying that volunteerism will help you grow both personally and professionally.
Mr. Weissman maintained that incredible things inevitably happen when trying to positively impact a community. He said, “Philanthropy is a key component of BRA Ignite and the epitome of doing well by doing good.” Jason spoke about being active with Samaritans, CJP, Heading Home and Love Lane. He assured his employees, “If it’s important to you, it’s important to us” and urged all attendees to affiliate themselves with a community non-profit or special cause issue.
Mr. Weissman and his partners devoted the balance of the event to reviewing the success of 2019 and stressed the importance of connecting the dots between the many service lines within BRA. Jason affirmed, “We had an incredible year and the proof is in the numbers!” Highlights included but were not limited to:
- Advisors Living CEO Janice Dumont was the #1 Sales Broker in Boston/Cambridge/Brookline.
- CL Properties was the #1 Listing & Selling Brokerage on Boston’s Waterfront.
- The Office Team Transacted Over 140 Leases Throughout Greater Boston.

In closing, Mr. Weissman announced a BRA Ignite Speaker Series, that will include six dynamic personalities throughout 2020. He then reminded his growing firm to put their clients first – be a trusted advisor, strong confidante and great partner.
