Tulsa-based McGraw Realtors has acquired 13 Anderson Properties locations in Oklahoma and Arkansas, including four in the Oklahoma City metro area.

McGraw, in business since 1938, now has 18 locations with about 750 real estate agents.

The company said it previously had about 410 agents working out of five offices.

McGraw bought Anderson Properties' assets in Oklahoma and Arkansas, not the company. No other terms of the transaction were released.

Anderson Properties, based in Houston, previously was associated with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices. The company expanded into Oklahoma with purchases of Tulsa-based Prudential Alliance Realty in 2014 and Paradigm AdvantEdge Real Estate in Oklahoma City in 2015. Both had multiple offices.

Anderson Properties offices in Texas recently sold to Berkshire Hathaway Premier Properties, also based in Houston.

McGraw's new locations here are 16301 N May Ave.; 908 SW 107; 2150 S Douglas Blvd., Suites E and F, in Midwest City; and 1309 S Holly Ave., No. 150, in Yukon.

The others are in Ada, Bartlesville, Enid, Grove, Pawhuska, Roland, Tulsa, and Fort Smith and Greenwood in Arkansas.

In addition to its corporate office, McGraw already had another location in Tulsa, and offices in Broken Arrow, Owasso and Langley/Grand Lake.

“This is an exciting time for all of us at McGraw," said Bill McCollough, president and CEO since 2017. "Even though we have been doing business in Oklahoma for over 82 years, we all have an incredible feeling that we are just getting started.”

In addition to its residential real estate division, McGraw also brokers commercial property and offers property management services. McGraw's principal broker is Rodger Erker, who serves on the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission.

The purchase “is beyond exciting news for McGraw Realtors," managing broker Lindsey Schlomann said. "McGraw has been a staple in the Tulsa real estate market for 82 years, and now we are stronger than ever and ready to embrace new markets across Oklahoma and western Arkansas. We can now offer our higher standard of service and expertise to sellers and buyers in these new markets, regardless of their real estate needs, allowing us to be a truly full-service brokerage.”

Regina Yager, who was principal broker for Anderson Properties in Oklahoma and Arkansas, came with the acquisition.

"In the short time since the acquisition was announced, it has been really clear to me that McGraw Realtors has two main priorities," Yager said. "McGraw genuinely cares about each agent and each client, buyer or seller. It’s clear that good leadership matters at McGraw, and is essential to the company’s success. Combine that with the support already in place from cutting-edge technology and full service, in house marketing, our agents and clients really stand to benefit.”
