Pacific Union International: Flagship Office Opening in Silicon Valley

This Thursday – April, 24th – Pacific Union will be opening our brand new Silicon Valley Office in Menlo Park! And in October, Pacific Union will open a brand new real estate team office in Noe Valley, San Francisco!

The new office location will be 1706 El Camino Real, Suite 200 – and Pacific Union Vice President David Barca, will be managing the team of real estate professionals in this region. Highly regarded in our real estate world here in San Francisco – we are eager and excited to see how David will bring PU into the future here in The Bay Area.

“We are excited to welcome these very successful and highly skilled real estate professionals to our team…this new group is reflective of our very high standards of performance and professionalism, and we are looking forward to the energy they bring to the entire organization.” Pacific Union CEO Mark A. McLaughlin said.

As Pacific Union grows and expands – we are excited to see this opening in Silicon Valley – and we feel it really serves to mark our involvement in the larger technology oriented community being grown in San Francisco. After all – this is one of the best and hottest markets in the US – and we want to ensure our continued presence for years to come. With the median sales price in this region at 2.6 Million for March (the highest we have seen in 1 year) – and a lack of inventory driving this price up, we expect to see success for all of our agents – old and new.

To kick things off properly, Menlo Park Mayor Ray Mueller joined VP Barca and CEO McLaughlin this past week for a ribbon-cutting event to celebrate the opening. To share in our successes – more than 50,000 was donated to 11 local nonprofit organizations as a show of appreciation to our larger real estate community of friends and family.

Among these nonprofits are Collective Roots, Jennifer Kranz Research Fund/Lucile Packard Foundation, Menlo Park-Atherton Education Foundation, One Million Lights, Peninsula Volunteers Rosener House, and the St. Raymond School.

Stop by and say hello – we are located at 1706 El Camino Real, Suite 200 in Menlo Park, California. Also – for all your San Francisco real estate needs – contact the Red Bridge Group – the best SF real estate team.

PU Professionals: Enhanced Trulia and Zillow Listings

Marketing and advertising listings for Pacific Union professionals is changing as internet tycoons Zillow and Trulia assist in getting our listings out to the public. This will help us reach more potential buyers than ever before.

Pacific Union now offers the ability to do “enhanced listings” on the commonly used client search portals Zillow and Trulia. Now, Pacific Union agents – and their listings – move to the top of these search pages with more “popping” displays and images as well as an exclusive to place PU specific listings and agent contact information. These changes have been made possible through PU’s existing Premier Services Agreement. To clarify – PU will however no longer be offering this enhanced detail for our agent’s listings on Realtor.com. Keep in mind – this is only for “enhanced listings” – your standard listings will continue to appear on 3rd party search portals – Realtor.com included.

With changes to our real estate industry coming primarily from the online sector – it is important that we not remain stagnant – but rather recognize industry changes as inventible and not something we can change. In order for us to remain an industry leader – and position our listings in front of the largest group of qualified buyers, it was important for us to make this change. Truly and Zillow are the leaders and Realtor.com has slowed to a screeching halt. Zillow is ahead of Realtor.com by 300% – according to recent data.

“After studying the field, we decided to redirect our financial resources to maximize the exposure of our clients’ listings through syndication. And already we’re seeing strong evidence that we made the right move, with Zillow leads on our listings up 244 percent in just two weeks.” – Pacific Union spokesperson.
