Development Consulting and Advisory Services


Text Box:  Anne and Craig Galvin established The Galvin Group in 2008. They have each worked in the real estate market for over 10 years and have extensive experience in residential, commercial, and mixed use developments throughout Dorchester. They are a seasoned, reliable, proactive and knowledgeable team. Having both raised their families in Dorchester, they understand the history, culture and vision for the future of the city. With their hard work and vested interest in the community, it is no surprise they have been ranked the #1 sales team in Dorchester, based on MLS data, since in 2006. 


Since starting The Galvin Group, Anne and Craig have further developed their long-standing and trusted relationships with the residents, civic groups, developers, union leadership, and elected officials of Dorchester.  We utilize our extensive network and unparalleled knowledge of local markets to produce a successful, open, and satisfying experience for every client. We gain an intimate knowledge of each client’s needs and expectations and do whatever is necessary to meet clients’ objectives. We make certain our projects are good for both the city and our clients, thus earning a very high level of trust within the community.


The company has grown, and is now a team of twelve, with more than sixty years of extensive experience working with real estate buyers, sellers, renters and developers seeking exceptional service. The team at The Galvin Group is accustomed to regularly meeting with neighborhoods, elected officials, and other community organizations to maintain the focus and transparency of their real estate projects.  We ensure that our clients and projects receive the focus and attention they deserve.

Keeping development projects on track extends beyond solid relationships with the community. The Galvin Group prides itself on the ability to successfully work with banks, lenders and financial institutions to ensure projects can be properly funded, and move ahead on schedule and on budget.  Similarly, when dealing with zoning and the permitting process, our team members are subject-matter experts who can provide key insights and support in meeting with the community, abutters, the Zoning Board of Appeals, the BRA, and other stakeholders.
