Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno, the largest locally owned and operated independent real estate brokerage leader in Northern California, announced today that Eric Chu, a proven real estate professional and leader of the Key Luxury Estates team in the San Francisco Peninsula market has joined Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno, exiting Keller Williams.
Since becoming a licensed realtor in 2017, Chu’s sales have kept him in the top 1% of all realtors in the area and always within the top percentage of agents in his brokerage’s market center. Last year, Chu was honored as one of the top agents in his office, with GCI exceeding $2.5 million. In 2021, Chu along with his team produced an impressive $135 million in real estate sales volume.
“We are inspired to welcome Eric Chu and his team to the Christie’s International Real
Estate Sereno family,” says Chris Trapani, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer. “As
a San Francisco native and a consummate real estate professional, Eric is a trusted
authority about the Peninsula and communities like Palo Alto, Menlo Park, Belmont, and San Carlos. He is highly recognized for his integrity and his ability to educate and foster connections between people. Eric is a very dynamic individual and it’s a blessing for us to be joining forces.”
Chu joins the Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno office in Burlingame that serves as a gateway to some of the nation’s most expensive residential markets, strengthening the company’s growth in the region.
“I’m excited to bring my team to Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno,” says Chu.
“As a team, we strive every day to earn our reputation for honesty and integrity. We are
completely devoted to clearly communicating our inside knowledge of what’s going on in the market to benefit our clients. The outstanding local leadership of Christie’s Sereno will be a strong component of our success going forward.”
Sereno recently partnered with Christie’s International Real Estate in February 2022. The luxury brand affiliation is significant given that the firm is active in four of the nation’s top ten zip codes for median home price, including Atherton, California, which holds the number one spot at $7 million. The Christie’s network provides the firm’s clients with marketing exposure throughout 50 countries and the social network and clientele of the famed auction house.
Earlier this year the firm opened a new office in Menlo Park, anchored by a group of former Compass agents. In addition to Chu, Sereno’s Burlingame office now is enriched by nearly 40 former Compass agents including former San Francisco Peninsula Compass founding agent, Phil Chen who completed over $250M in sales last year, the Watson Marshall team, a dynamic and well-respected top producing partnership between two of the most recognized and celebrated Realtors in the Bay Area, and the Damelio Group. The Burlingame office on its own projects over $1 billion in annual sales, making it one of the top offices in California on a per agent productivity basis.
