Two Pleasanton real estate groups have established a partnership under the J. Rockcliff Realtors flagship, a company that has offices at 5075 Hopyard Road in Pleasanton.
Joining the Rockcliff group are the Deans of Real Estate, a mother-daughter team of Cathy Dean and Kari Wahl Dean, and the Swift Real Estate team, consisting of Michael Swift, Craig Einsohn and Crystal Franks.
A major real estate firm serving the East Bay, J. Rockcliff Realtors was founded in 2007. Under the leadership of its president Jeff Sposito, the company has more than 500 sales associates and offices in eight other locations.
An award winning real estate veteran, Cathy Dean also is this year's treasurer of the Valley Real Estate Network, whose members include leading Realtors and real estate-related individuals and organizations. The group is part of the Bay East Association of Realtors professional trade association. Her daughter Kari Wahl Dean joined the team in 2004.
Swift, who heads the Swift Real Estate team, is a broker associate who has specialized in loan modifications and short sales since 1991. He also is a founding member of the Northern California Modification and Short Sale Broker Group.
"This partnership is the definition of synergy," said Dean. "We are able to combine a depth and breadth of experience and market knowledge with top-notch technology and concierge-style customer service to help distressed homeowners make the best possible decisions."
The Dean/Swift team is offering complimentary one-hour consultation sessions to homeowners who are looking into loan modification as an option or may be considering short selling their home.
"Our objective is to offer as much insight and assistance as possible," said Dean. "We have been helping people understand and execute their best options for more than 22 years."
