Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Drysdale Properties today announced that respected real estate operator Robert Bradley, the former president and CEO of Bradley Real Estate, has joined the brokerage. As a result, many of Marin County’s finest agents have also committed to join Drysdale Properties.
The additions give Drysdale Properties, already with 1,200 agents and 45 offices spread throughout Northern California and Nevada, a significant presence in key Marin County markets of Novato, San Rafael and Southern Marin.
Bradley, as Senior Vice President, Strategic Initiatives, will oversee Drysdale Properties’ growth inMarin County and surrounding areas. “We are delighted to name Robert Bradley to our executive leadership team and welcome his wonderful agents to Drysdale Properties,” said Gretchen Pearson, president and CEO of the brokerage. “To be sure, we’ve hit the ground running in Marin County with skilled, tenured sales professionals directed by one of our industry’s finest sales and motivational leaders. This group, combined with our Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand and Drysdale Properties’ support, will set new standards for sales production and service.”
Bradley, who helped build Bradley Real Estate into Marin County’s largest independent brokerage, sought a new identity for his real estate career and for his agents.
“I researched all brand options and business models and determined Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Drysdale Properties gave us the best opportunity for significant and long-term growth,” he explained. “I’ve known Gretchen for many years and appreciate the way she’s grown her brokerage over time. And with the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand, we bring the best of all worlds to our Marin County clientele.”
Pearson described Bradley as an agent-centric leader who is a master at establishing strong brokerage culture.
“He is an amazing manager whose primary focus is to help his agents grow their businesses,” she said. “It’s not surprising that Robert’s agents are happy and that their clients are continuously satisfied. He has cultivated life-long business relationships, which has resulted in agent loyalty.”
Bradley said he’s competed against the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices brand in his Northern California markets. Business prospects look much more attractive as a member of the brand, he added.
“I believe Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is ideally suited for our Marin County markets,” he said. “The brand is fresh and distinctive, and it represents operational success and expertise in the marketplace. Marin County consumers will be looking for our Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices yard signs and markings as symbols of quality service and top-flight representation.”
Gino Blefari, president and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices, congratulated Pearson, Bradley and the brokerage. “Drysdale Properties, a powerhouse brokerage, just grew even stronger with the addition of Bradley and his agents,” he said. “I expect this group to flourish as part of the Drysdale Properties team.”
