SILICON VALLEY ASSOCIATES MERGES WITH CSR REAL ESTATE SERVICES

SILICON VALLEY ASSOCIATES MERGES WITH CSR REAL ESTATE SERVICES
CSR Real Estate Services & Silicon Valley Associates Become One

San Jose, CA (September 12, 2017) – CSR Real Estate Services, a leader in providing the highest level of customer service, announced today they are becoming a joint entity with Silicon Valley Associates (SVA), a company specialized in world-class real estate, to become the leading boutique, Silicon Valley real estate group.

Merging with Silicon Valley Associates, based in Campbell, CA, further increases CSR’s share in the Silicon Valley real estate market. “I’ve been a part of many real estate acquisitions and mergers throughout my career. This one is very special and has uniqueness to it. Silicon Valley is largely made up of corporate owned, Wall Street driven real estate brokerages. To see two of the most respected, independently owned and operated brokerages joining forces and gaining momentum, is a bold statement that the boutique, family-run business is alive and well,” Terry Meyer, CSR Real Estate Services Senior Vice President of Operations & Broker Associate.

Founded in 2003 by real estate veterans who sought to enhance the experience of buying and selling a home, CSR Real Estate Services is a boutique, Silicon Valley real estate group. CSR embraces dedication to the community, local business interaction and helping people make one of the most important transactions of their lives. CSR takes pride in providing a high-caliber of service to clients and business partners of all backgrounds. CSR strives to build long-term relationships fostered through integrity, competency and mutual respect. As the company continues to grow, locally as well as its recent expansion to Roseville, California, CSR flourishes because it offers the full spectrum of real estate services while maintaining its home-grown appeal and inclusive culture.

“We’re honored to have such a respectable brokerage and team of professionals join the CSR family. Combining the two parties is something we’ve been thinking about for a long time and we are excited to see what successes are to come in the near future,” Steve Bonafede, CSR Real Estate Services President & Chief Executive Officer.

From its inception in 2007, Silicon Valley Associates has continued its boutique-style, which ensures delivery of the highest level of personalized service. SVA’s innovative approach to organization and detail ensures that every real estate need is met well beyond the transaction – this is the SVA advantage. The company integrates technology to market listings and utilizes the knowledge and experience to deliver seamless transactions.

“Our goal is to become the power house in this industry by gravitating people to our unique, philanthropic, close-nit culture. With the combined experiences that both SVA and CSR possess, there’s no reason we can’t attract the best agents in Silicon Valley and create a stronger home for us all – we are all extremely enthusiastic about that”, Don Jessup, Silicon Valley Associates Owner.

CSR is known for traditional and remarkable customer service and attention to detail. CSR currently serves a large portion of the south bay area and employs over 80 staff members and agents between San Jose and Roseville, CA. It has won numerous awards for its outstanding services, continuous growth as well as maintaining a 96% agent retention rate. The company will focus on providing new CSR agents with a warm welcome, adequate training and a new place to call home. Business will continue as usual moving forward within CSR’s San Jose headquarters. For more information about CSR Real Estate Services, visit www.CSRRealEstateServices.com.

CSR EXPANDS TO ROSEVILLE

CSR EXPANDS TO ROSEVILLE
Here we Grow Again…BIG TIME!

SAN JOSE, CA August 1, 2017 — CSR Real Estate expands to Roseville, CA. CSR Real Estate Services, the number one real estate agency in Cambrian, announces its expansion to the Sacramento and Roseville area. The firm will bolster its service offering to the Roseville and Sacramento area real estate market.

Silicon Valley real estate gurus and CSR Leadership Team expressed their excitement for the expansion to staff and agents over a company-wide meeting held in early July. Within the meeting, pioneer CSR Roseville agents, Lisa Herkenrath, Lana Hurley and David Hurley were introduced to the CSR family, CSR culture and welcomed with open arms. Enthusiasm filled the room as highlights were unveiled to the company.

“CSR’s competitive advantages and personal, human-touch in the Roseville real estate market are just as valuable as they are in Silicon Valley – our unwavering focus on customer service and perfecting the home-buying experience as well as our one-of-a-kind culture will flourish here”, explained Terry Meyer, Vice President of Operations. “Our strategy in Roseville is simple – we’re listening to our clients. We’re expanding our commitment to the Roseville market just as our clients expand their interest and commitment to real estate in those areas”, emphasized Steve Bonafede, President & CEO. Bonafede also accentuated the company’s opportunity to attract top talent in a rapidly growing real estate market, saying, “As we continue to grow, we see a real opportunity to attract some highly-talented agents across Sacramento and Roseville.”

“Roseville and other outer layers of the bay are the clear winners among emerging markets driven by cost of living in the California Bay Area,” added Terry Meyer. “Increasingly, families are enabling the evolution of the real estate market, making Roseville the #1 city to raise a family in the Bay Area”, says Lisa Herkenrath in an interview.

With houses popping up like weeds throughout the Sacramento area (10,000 within a three-mile radius to be exact), surrounded by golf courses and located just 90 minutes from the popular vacation destination, Lake Tahoe, CSR sees this as an optimal opportunity to expand its mission in duplicating community outreach and sharing its unique company culture from its origin in San Jose miles away. Other highlights in expanding from Silicon Valley to the Roseville area include the top-rated schools throughout the Roseville District; all of them are Gold-Standard award-winning schools.
