A Metro Boston commercial real estate owner is spearheading the launch of a new national franchise in Sharon next week. Long-time apartment complex and retail store owner Rodney Chance will open the doors of Brightway, The Glaser Chance Agency insurance office on Monday.

The Boston native, along with Andrew Glaser, son of James “Jimmy Knows” Glaser, founder of Glaser Law, have teamed up to unveil this new venture in Norfolk County.

Chance, 52, owned several multi-family complexes throughout his career which he later liquidated into retail ventures over the past decade.

“With my history of working with small businesses and our neighbors throughout our communities, opening this Brightway agency was a natural fit,” Chance said of the new Pond Street storefront.

An alum of Lincoln-Sudbury High School, Chance is the son of Roy and Zera Chance. Father of three, Chance resides in Mansfield with his wife, Phynita.

Brightway, The Glaser Chance Agency offers customized Home, Flood, Auto, Boat, Condo, Renters, Personal Articles, RV, Motorcycle, Umbrella, and Life insurance policies from numerous insurance companies. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. (EDT) and Saturday/Sunday by appointment.
