Halstead Property has put the finishing touches on its expansion in Westport.

Halstead acquired the space adjacent to the Westport office within the Compo Shopping Center and nearly doubling its space from 1,900 square feet to approximately 3,200 square feet. After two months of construction, the additional space has enabled the number of agent desks to grow from 22 to 38.

The original Westport office, which also handles business in Weston, Fairfield and Easton, among other towns, opened in October 2009.

Six other Halstead Property offices opened in Fairfield County in the past year, including Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Rowayton, Stamford and Wilton.

"In this real estate environment, when most of our competitors are contracting or even closing offices all together, we are thrilled to announce such positive growth," said John DiCenzo, executive director of sales for Halstead Property in Westport and Wilton. "Westport is a wonderful community filled with great residents. We have attracted several excellent agents to our Westport office in the past year and look forward to growing more in the future."
