SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third straight year, Pacific Union Real Estate has been named to the Inc. 5000 list, which ranks the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the U.S. Since its first appearance on the list in 2013, the brokerage has moved up the list more than 1,000 places – from 3,433 in 2013 to 2,403 in 2015.

In February, Pacific Union was ranked as the ninth-largest brokerage in the U.S. on both RISMedia's 2014 Power Broker list and the REAL Trends 500 list, with 2014 sales volume of $6.75 billion. The luxury brokerage leads the Bay Area in residential real estate transactions in the closely followed sales-over-$3-million category. Over the past three years, Pacific Union has grown revenue by 158 percent.

"Our ability to maintain and improve our position on this prestigious Inc. 5000 list is a function of our relentless pursuit of our Vision 2017," says Pacific Union CEO Mark A. McLaughlin. "Our leadership team developed this vision in December 2012. We believe in our vision, and our results in the marketplace support this vision. In Q1 '16, we will develop Pacific Union's Vision 2020 – our five-year plan – to continue our growth in market share.

In September 2015, Pacific Union will open a new Palo Alto office at 437 Lytton Ave. This new office joins two other Pacific Union locations in the region – in Menlo Park and Burlingame – and features private parking and top-tier amenities for visiting clients. In keeping with Pacific Union's commitment to providing extraordinary service, the 3,200-square-foot first-floor space features large, well-appointed offices and conference rooms and will allow the Bay Area luxury brokerage to fully support its strong Silicon Valley team in the Palo Alto region. 

"Our expansion into Palo Alto underscores Pacific Union's commitment to become a leader in Silicon Valley as it has the Bay Area and San Francisco," McLaughlin says. "In April 2015, Pacific Union united its entire San Francisco team from its three city offices under one very visible roof on Van Ness Avenue. With this new Palo Alto office, we'll be able to deliver even stronger client service, and our Silicon Valley team will have an important foothold in the dynamic Palo Alto market."

The Pacific Union Palo Alto space is located at the former location of Chicago Title on Lytton Avenue. The space will serve a team of 20 residential real estate professionals and their expert support team.

"This Pacific Union Palo Alto team will emerge as an elite group of the community's top producers who will be equipped with Pacific Union's award-winning, state-of-the-art technology; digital media content; and China Concierge program to deliver the immediate and responsive service that Silicon Valley demands," McLaughlin says.

Joining this new team are leading Palo Alto real estate professionals Adam Touni, Wendy Kandasamy (formerly of Zane McGregor), and Amy Sung.

In April 2014, Pacific Union opened its Silicon Valley flagship office on El Camino Real in Menlo Park with a salute to 13 local nonprofit organizations. In May 2015, Pacific Union supported the Children's Champions event at Stanford Stadium to raise funds for local underserved youth. In September 2015, Pacific Union will serve as a sponsor for Palo Alto's Midnight Run.
