Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate has merged with Pacific Union Santa Rosa and Petaluma to provide even more services to real estate clients in the Bay Area.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 07, 2011
The Sonoma Valley real estate three former Santa Rosa and Petaluma offices of Pacific Union have merged with the Wine Country Group by Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate. The merger of these highly experienced and qualified real estate firms brings a new level of service to real estate clients in San Francisco, Berkeley and the Sonoma Valley.
Owned by Coralee Barkela and Suzanne Drace since 2006, the San Francisco real estate Pacific Union offices in Santa Rosa and Petaluma have a total of 37 agents. Ms. Barkela will remain with the company as a top producing agent, and Ms. Drace will remain as the branch manager of both offices.
“Six months ago, Wine Country Group was formed in order to give buyers and sellers a high end choice,” says Dougan Jones, managing partner. “Wine Country Group has quietly and steadily attracted top agents to better serve our clients.”
Since February of this year, Wine Country Group has grown to 11 offices and 219 real estate agents. Seven offices and 180 agents were added to the company when Frank Howard Allen Sebastopol was merged with the Wine Country Group by Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate in June. The company’s network now consists of 40 offices and 2,000 real estate agents throughout Northern California and Northern Nevada.
The Wine Country Group’s offices are in Santa Rosa, Petaluma, Sonoma, Healdsburg, Sebastopol, Cloverdale, Bodega Bay, Glen Ellen, Napa and St. Helena. The firm expects to continue to grow its footprint in other Sonoma and Napa County market areas.
