IRVINE, Calif., June 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- First Team Real Estate—Southern California's largest independent real estate brokerage—is thrilled to announce that renowned luxury real estate expert Jeana Sander is joining its Huntington Beach Seacliff office as Manager.
Deeply experienced in all facets of the business, Jeana served as Sales Manager of Coldwell Banker's top-performing branch in San Diego prior to joining First Team. Due to her proven ability to drive luxury sales and lead teams to success by providing seasoned mentorship and guidance, Jeana is one of the most prominent names in Southern California real estate.
"Jeana is well known throughout the real estate industry as a strong leader who understands not only how to drive success, but how to motivate and inspire her team to achieve beyond all expectations," remarked Michael Mahon, President, First Team Real Estate. "Her unmatched experience and track record with regard to coastal real estate, as well as her capabilities as an agent mentor, render her the ideal candidate to lead our efforts in what is quickly becoming one of the hottest markets in all of Southern California."
Since First Team's inception nearly 42 years ago, when Founder and CEO Cameron Merage opened its first office in Huntington Beach, the organization has been a significant driver of the area's community growth and development—and of the incredible prosperity that's swept its real estate markets over the last several years. In recent months, First Team's trajectory within this increasingly competitive niche market has been nothing short of explosive, with over $198 million in closed sales volume year to date. This statistic places First Team ahead of its closest competitor by over $85 million, and marks year-over-year growth of 26%.
"We are proud to be leading the charge as the top real estate brokerage in Huntington Beach," stated Mahon. "Together with our Huntington Beach South office, which is led by one of the industry's most dynamic leadership veterans, MaryAnn Cardullo, our Seacliff office promises an unrivaled commitment to superior customer service at every turn. That's why we continue to come in first place for closed sales volume—our associates place our clients' needs first."
In Huntington Beach, First Team is also far and away the market leader for property over $1 million, with unit sales up 67.6% year-over-year, and volume itself up from just under $53 million in 2016 to nearly $95 million this year—a staggering uptick of 79%.
"This year at First Team, we have placed a heightened investment in our associates, and on servicing the many luxury markets that line Orange County's coast," Mahon added. "These Huntington Beach statistics aptly reflect the winning results clients experience when working with a First Team associate."
