About Us

ERA Team VP - We've Refreshed Our Name... and Our Logo... But We're Still the Same Great Team!

Since 1983 the Vacation Properties Group has been Chautauqua County's leading residential and second homes real estate company, and the most experienced firm offering comprehensive real estate sales services, vacation rental management and property/condominium association management.

In 2004, the Vacation Properties Group's real estate division affiliated with one of the leading worldwide real estate franchise systems, ERA®, and expanded beyond Chautauqua County's residential, lake and Chautauqua Institution markets into Cattaraugus County's Ellicottville winter ski market (our office in Ellicottville was formerly known as Century 21 Town & Country).  This expansion has enabled the Vacation Properties Group to better reach & serve the 4-season vacation real estate and recreational property buyers in the key markets of Buffalo, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Toronto, Canada.

In 2011, ERA Team VP Real Estate merged with Century 21 Unlimited, a well established real estate company based in Cuba, NY, serving the real estate markets of Southwestern New York and Northwestern Pennsylvania. This was a very strategic alliance as Century 21 Unlimited has had more than 15 years of real estate experience in the Cattaraugus County and Allegany County markets. Century 21 Unlimited now operates under the name ERA Team VP Real Estate.

In 2012, ERA Team VP Real Estate merged with Coldwell Banker Phil Mathyer Real Estate, with real estate offices in Fredonia, NY; Jamestown, NY; Warren, PA and Bradford, PA; and with ERA Larson Real Estate, with a real estate office in Fredonia, NY. Coldwell Banker Phil Mathyer Real Estate had more than 20 years of experience in Chautauqua County Real Estate and Northwestern Pennsylvania Real Estate, while ERA Larson Real Estate had more than 30 years of experience in the Fredonia and Northern Chautauqua County Real Estate Markets. All offices are now operating as ERA Team VP Real Estate.

With offices in Chautauqua County, Cattaraugus County and Allegany County, New York and offices in McKean County and Warren County in Pennsylvania.
