Vista Sotheby's International Realty and South Bay Brokers Inc. Are Proud to Announce Their Partnership

This Union Will Create One of the Most Formidable Organizations in Real Estate

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 1, 2015) - Rick Edler, President and CEO of Vista Sotheby's International Realty, and Jim Van Zanten, CEO of South Bay Brokers, are pleased to announce a merger which will create one of the most formidable real estate agencies in Los Angeles County. The once friendly competitors agree that this union strengthens both teams and creates a united front that will create unrivaled support, personalized service and access to distinctive properties for both clients and agents alike.

The number of prestigious properties in the South Bay is limited, and supply and demand is a fact of life. Knowing the details of neighborhoods, up to the minute availability and home history is critical to providing excellent client service. 

"We have always believed that a structure is only as strong as its foundation," states Van Zanten. "We believe that this collaboration is mutually beneficial because of the ideals we share."

Rick Edler adds: "When you work in an exclusive and selective market like the South Bay, you see, hear and execute what works. This partnership will succeed because of our united strengths. The result is a personalized, boutique experience with unparalleled support and service. We look forward to exceeding client expectations for years to come."

This announcement was made to the unified Vista Sotheby's International Realty team on Wednesday, June 3, 2015.
