Pacific Union has acquired Empire Realty Associates, read the release below:
Dear Pacific Union Colleagues:
I’m excited to share the news that Pacific Union International has acquired Danville-based Empire Realty Associates, an independent luxury brokerage with 54 top-performing East Bay real estate professionals. The acquisition will continue to grow our Contra Costa region, increasing our market share in the Tri-Valley area.
This alliance is a homecoming of sorts for the leadership teams of Empire Realty Associates and Pacific Union. The East Bay brokerage’s CEO and Chairperson Judi Keenholtz established Empire Realty Associations in 2002. Prior to founding that brokerage, Keenholtz was tapped by Pacific Union in 1989 to establish its first division outside of San Francisco in Contra Costa County.
We are pleased to welcome Empire’s team to Pacific Union. We share both history in this community and the same core values of integrity and elite performance that define our commitment to our clients. This brings us one step closer to our vision of becoming the real estate firm of the future and the ultimate California real estate company, with projected 2017 sales volume in excess of $18 billion. As Pacific Union continues to grow, we stay committed to offering our real estate professionals the same benefits of a locally owned and operated business.
Empire Realty Associations will continue to operate under its current name until 2018, when it will be rebranded as Pacific Union International.
