On November 25, 2019, Golden Gate Sotheby's International Realty announced it will join forces with Peninsula-based real estate brokerage Today Sotheby's International Realty. The announcement marks another growth moment for GGSIR, the San Francisco Bay Area's premier brokerage and its further expansion in Silicon Valley and the Peninsula. The offices and agents are the latest additions to GGSIR's unified network serving Wine Country, Marin County, the East Bay, San Francisco, and now deeper within the Peninsula and Silicon Valley. Golden Gate Sotheby's International Realty will add the offices of Burlingame, Redwood City and San Carlos, and over 80 agents, to its existing Silicon Valley offices in Woodside, Menlo Park, Palo Alto, Los Altos and Los Gatos.
Today Sotheby's International Realty roots began with its founders Jeanne Garde and Jim Meader, who opened a boutique brokerage in 1990. By empowering real estate professionals, Garde and Meader quickly dominated the local market. Through integrating innovative marketing, technology, and highly-trained support staff, they grew to three thriving offices on the Peninsula. In 2010, they joined the world-renowned Sotheby's International Realty Affiliate network and became a leading luxury brokerage with over $1 billion in sales volume annually.
"We are proud that our three San Mateo County offices will be joining forces with Golden Gate Sotheby's International Realty. The combined synergy will provide our agents and consumers with a holistic Bay Area experience second to none," said Meader and Garde.
"Our brokerage brings together market leaders in each region we serve to form a powerful network of the finest caliber agents and most talented staff in the industry. Our union with Today Sotheby's International Realty will further our mission; providing the highest level of service and local market access throughout the San Francisco Bay Area," said Bill Bullock, President and CEO of Golden Gate Sotheby's International Realty.
