The celebration included a ribbon-cutting ceremony sponsored by the Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce at the firm's new address in the Taylor building at 4733 Chabot Drive. The firm previously was on Johnson Drive, where it had been located for over 30 years.
"We are thrilled with our new state-of-the-art offices, which have a training room that seats 50, a modern office configuration with a lounge area for our agents and a convenient location for our agents and clients," said Janet Cristiano, broker of the Ruby Hill and Pleasanton offices.
"I had the opportunity to work very closely with the architectural and interior design teams to create a very open, modern work environment for our agents that allows them to deliver a level of excellence to our clients during their home buying and selling experience that is unsurpassed in the Bay Area," she added.
