LOS ANGELES, CA – December 10, 2020 – Corcoran Global Living, a franchise affiliate of Corcoran Group, LLC, welcomed several new partners in its fast-growing footprint in Southern California. This latest expansion reaches into San Bernardino county and additional communities in Los Angeles county, including the luxury coastal community of Manhattan Beach and the inland communities of Palmdale and Downey. Adding more than 400 associates into its family of real estate professionals, Corcoran Global Living continues to broaden its market share and consumer reach across the West Coast. The firm now has nearly 1,500 associates across 42 offices, with annual combined sales of more than $6 billion.
“We’re energized to be closing out the year as one of the fastest growing brokerages on the West Coast with our latest expansion into San Bernardino county and furthering our presence across Los Angeles into Manhattan Beach, Palmdale and Downey with these successful partners,” said Michael Mahon, CEO and Founder of Corcoran Global Living. “We’re proud of the level of growth we’ve achieved in this first year as Corcoran Global Living, and we’ll aim to continue it well into 2021. Together, we’re building something truly unique by bringing together talented, liked-minded professionals who are committed to making a difference in the communities we call home. Our culture continues to attract the best top producing associates and team leaders in the markets we serve.”
Today’s announcement advances Corcoran Global Living’s footing across Southern California and the West Coast. In San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties, this latest expansion includes the leadership of Danny Morel and Anthony Morel of Avance Real Estate in Rancho Cucamonga, Jason Lucero and Oscar Mendoza of LMM Real Estate in Downey, and Jose Zavalza of ZMR Real Estate in Palmdale, all previously operating under the Intero franchise. These individuals, all with a wealth of industry experience, join as partners at Corcoran Global Living.
“This is a major milestone for us, and we couldn’t be happier that we’re joining such a powerhouse brokerage,” said Anthony Morel, speaking on behalf of the San Bernardino/Los Angeles group. “We’ve always run a people-oriented company focused primarily on training. Being part of CGL allows us to carry on our values while upgrading our offering to our agents, which is of the utmost importance to us,” continued Morel, now Partner and District V.P. of Sales at Corcoran Global Living.
The growth in Manhattan Beach is heralded by John Chuka, Owner/Founder of NW Real Estate Brokers. The local leadership is further enhanced with industry veterans, Tom Swanson and Sherry Sada, who joined the company as part of the L.A. launch in November and will be expanding the growth across the beach cities of Los Angeles. Peter Lorimer, former Owner/Founder of PLG Estates and now Partner/V.P. of Sales with Corcoran Global Living, is leading the entire sales operation and growth across Los Angeles county. With these additions to the Corcoran Global Living family, CGL now has strong market presence in some of the most sought-after communities in Southern California – from Manhattan Beach to Santa Monica and in Northern California – from San Francisco and Silicon Valley to the world-class Napa Valley Wine Region.
“The Corcoran brand has become widely recognized in California with the growth of Corcoran Global Living, and is well-matched with the upscale beach cities where we live and work,” commented John Chuka of the Manhattan Beach location. “With top-notch technology, business coaching, and referral opportunities, I’m confident that CGL will help our agents surpass their business goals.”
“Our growth in California this year with Corcoran Global Living is something I’m very proud of, and hope to see even more of it next year,” said Pamela Liebman, President & CEO of Corcoran. “Now that we’re in Los Angeles, having strong teams in key places like San Bernardino and Manhattan Beach allows us to continue top client service in more specialized and specific regions – whether it’s a new adventure near Route 66 or a second home with ocean views.”
