Better Homes and Gardens in new Pleasanton offices

Mayor among crowds of well-wishers at opening event

by Jeb Bing

Mayor Jerry Thorne and Councilwoman Kathy Narum joined branch manager Earl Rozran and nearly 100 others last week to celebrate the move by Better Homes and Gardens Tri-Valley Realty to larger Pleasanton offices.

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.

Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie Real Estate began with the founding of Mason-McDuffie Real Estate in 1987. The company was named the 26th largest real estate services firm in the nation by Real Trends 500 in 2012, and No. 2 in the San Francisco East Bay by San Francisco Business Times.

Last year, the company handled more than 5,900 transactions, generating over $3 billion in sales volume.

Better Homes and Gardens Mason-McDuffie Real Estate includes joint ventures with Highland Partners in Piedmont and Montclair, Leading Edge Properties in Petaluma, Tri-Valley Realty in Pleasanton and Livermore, Ventura Barnett in San Jose and Bahay Co. in Concord.

The firm is locally owned and has more than 1,200 real estate professionals with 32 offices in eight counties in the Bay Area, as well as in the Napa Valley and the Tahoe/Truckee region.
