Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wine Country Group headquartered in Sonoma, Calif., has merged with former Coldwell Banker Towne & Country Realty in Lake County, Calif.

The combined organization will unite under the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wine Country Group name, serving residents of Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, and Lake counties. Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wine Country Group now consists of 11 offices and more than 150 affiliated sales associates.

Their combined success last year was due to more than 570 transaction sides equating to more than $350,000,000 in sales volume in 2020. This merger will grow the company by approximately 20%.

Randy Coffman will remain President of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Wine Country Group, who joined the BHGRE® brand in 2015.

“This is an exciting development for both of our companies, as we join forces to create a prominent four-county service area spanning Sonoma, Napa, Mendocino, and Lake counties. Marsha built a successful company and created a legacy based on her dedication to her agents and clients. We will honor her leadership and are excited to welcome our new agents in Lake County,” says Coffman.

The company has won several recent brand and industry awards including recognition as a top 20 BHGRE® affiliate in the nation based on sales volume in 2020 and was named in the 2021 REAL Trends Nation’s Best Brokerage.

Carina De Herrera will lead the Lake County operations after spending the last four years as a REALTOR® at Coldwell Banker Towne & Country Realty, which was founded in 1993, and owned and operated by Marsha Holder since 2008.
