Former Compass exec joins Christie’s franchise

Shawna Borg named new VP of operations at Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno

Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno has hired former Compass regional executive Shawna Borg as its new vice president of operations, according to a Tuesday announcement from the company.

“Having Shawna as part of our firm is a significant benefit to our ongoing operational efficiency and positive agent experience. We are fortunate to be aligning with her at this exciting stage of our firm, given the opportunity we see to capture increasing market share throughout the San Francisco Bay Area,” said Ryan Iwanaga, co-founder and chief experience officer at Sereno, according to a news release.

The brokerage said Borg will lead the organization’s effort to strengthen its operation and infrastructure in the region and continues its overall growth in Northern California.

Sereno partnered with Christies this February and plans to open a new office in Menlo Park in July, which the brokerage said will be anchored by a group of former Compass agents.

“I strive to tap into the talent and energy of our existing people and operations and empower each department for successful growth. Bringing our teams together that work with our agents and platforms every day will help us align with passion and purpose to deliver meaningful support for everyone at Sereno,” Borg said.
