You will notice a slightly different look to our website. I have joined the Sereno Group and I hope you will share my excitement in this new opportunity. Sereno Group is a growing real estate company which focuses on local markets. Founded in 2006 by Chris Trapani, former President of Coldwell Banker Silicon Valley, Sereno Group has been built one agent at a time with a strong focus on being nimble and responsive to the diversity of market conditions in each community. I have been offered the opportunity to be part of the foundation in building the Palo Alto office. I am thrilled to participate in a culture that is young, energetic, intelligent, and adaptive.
Sereno Group closed $1 Billion in sales in 2011 and is already solidly ranked among the top 4 most productive real estate firms in Silicon Valley per the Silicon Valley Business Journal. In 2013, Sereno Group closed over $2 Billion in sales. It enjoys the highest per agent productivity as compared to all other residential real estate firms in Silicon Valley/Bay Area. Sereno Group was also recognized as the #1 place to work in the entire Bay Area, for all business categories, in 2010, 2011, and 2012 by the Bay Area News Group.
Even a 60 year-old man can turn his world upside down and look forward to it! My new office is one block away at 258 High Street in downtown Palo Alto. As I have told you in the past, every company has the same tools. It is how the agent uses the tools and the surrounding office and company culture that makes the difference. I have great confidence that I can contribute to this new venture and I am looking forward to the challenge. As clients and friends, the only thing that will change is the name of the company and the logo you will see. I continue to represent my client base in the listing and selling of residential property. Nothing has changed there. My phone number is the same - 650.207.2100 - and I have a new e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'd say wish me luck, but there is no need. I feel so energized and excited.
All good things,
P.S. I am now 6 years cancer-free. For this I am truly grateful.
