MAY 6, 2015 – SANTA ANA, CA — Carrington Real Estate Services, LLC (Carrington), a corporately-owned and operated national brokerage, today announced that it has added an office in downtown San Diego with two dozen real estate agents formerly with ARG Abbott Realty Group. The addition of team members from one of the longest standing residential brands headquartered in San Diego will broaden delivery of Carrington’s high quality products and services to clients during each phase of the home buying and selling process. Downtown San Diego’s burgeoning residential population and strong profit potential make it a “must-have” market for Carrington. The addition of former ARG agents aligns with Carrington’s strategy to ensure area wide office coverage placing high value on the customer experience through the company’s integrated services model.
“I’m excited to welcome the ARG team to Carrington. They are a group of collaborative, highly-trained market leaders who represent the best qualities of our profession,” said Carrington Real Estate Services Executive Vice President and Head of Global Operations Wendy Forsythe. “We are confident that by combining the services of Carrington’s business system with their existing operations we will see tremendous growth.”
The new San Diego office located in the Marina District adds two dozen highly-skilled agents in the area of sales and leasing to Carrington’s growing national footprint of over 2,400 agents and brokers in 22 states. With years of local market and industry experience, the brokerage’s leadership team is well equipped to effectively accommodate the real estate needs of the vibrant, integrated community where residents live, work and walk. ARG’s deep knowledge of downtown San Diego’s planning and development strategy contributes to the group’s specific expertise and history of success in serving the high-rise urban condominium market.
“ARG’s leadership in the areas of agent resources, technology, core values and integrity, as well as its innovative training platforms will augment and complement Carrington’s to increase efficiency and maximize client and agent outcomes,” said Forsythe. “ARG Founder and President Jim Abbott said, “Our cultural alignment with Carrington is a natural fit on virtually every important level, from individual issues key to our agents to the overall growth strategies for the brokerage. We look forward to continuing to serve the residents of San Diego with the resources, relationships and strength associated with the Carrington brand.”
Carrington Real Estate Services’ new office in San Diego, located at 100 Island Avenue, is an example of its continued investment and focus on this important market. Carrington has expanded its operations substantially since November of 2014 in the San Diego market by adding over 100 agents to the national brokerage’s existing operations. The new San Diego office is one block from the world-renowned San Diego Convention Center and enjoys over 120,000 people passing by its prominent First Avenue and Island location each year.
