San Fran agent Eric Chu leaves Keller Williams for Christie’s International Real Estate

Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno announced that Eric Chu, leader of the Key Luxury Estates team in the San Francisco Peninsula market has joined Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno, exiting Keller Williams.

Chu’s sales earned him the No. 100 small team by sales volume and No. 146 by transaction sides in California, according to RealTrends + Tom Ferry America’s Best Real Estate Professionals. Last year, Chu was honored as one of the top agents in his office, with GCI exceeding $2.5 million.

“We are inspired to welcome Eric Chu and his team to the Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno family,” says Chris Trapani, co-founder and CEO, in a statement. “As a San Francisco native, Eric is a trusted authority about the Peninsula and communities like Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Belmont, and San Carlos.”

Chu joins the Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno office in Burlingame that serves as a gateway to some of the nation’s most expensive residential markets, strengthening the company’s growth in the region.

Sereno recently partnered with Christie’s International Real Estate in February 2022. The Christie’s network provides the firm’s clients with marketing exposure throughout 50 countries and the social network and clientele of the famed auction house.

Earlier this year the firm opened a new office in Menlo Park, anchored by a group of former Compass agents. In addition to Chu, Sereno’s Burlingame office now is enriched by nearly 40 former Compass agents.
