San Francisco, CA – January 3, 2011 – Zephyr Real Estate has honored nine members of its organization with long-term service awards. In a highly competitive market, such loyalty is recognized and applauded.
Zephyr proudly acknowledges these real estate agents for their years of dedication: Jan Medina and Linda Saraf, each with 20 years; Michael Murphy and Alan Natanson, each with 15 years; Suzanne Frank, Dan Healy, Michael Hopkins, Michael Salstein and Radha Tomassetti, all with 10 years.
“The success of Zephyr is dependent on the success of our agents, and we strive to provide an environment for our agents to be the most productive in the City,” said Randall Kostick, Chief Operating Officer for Zephyr. “We are proud to acknowledge and reward these agents for embodying the qualities of true professionalism,” he added.
“Zephyr and I have experienced many market cycles together in the past decade and in all of them I have been fully supported. The management and staff have always been available to assist me in every way possible. Zephyr provides me with a great environment that nurtures creativity and thought, and I in turn can pass this on to my clients in the form of the best real estate experience possible,” stated Michael Salstein, recipient of a 10-year award and a Top Producer at Zephyr. “I have been here for 10 years because there is no good reason to go anywhere else. Zephyr has it all: personality, technology, and offices throughout the city at my disposal.”
Zephyr continues to expand the service offerings for its agents, so that they are equipped with the most advanced tools in the industry. The most recent endeavors include the launch of the company’s new website, www.zephyrsf.com, which won an Interactive Media Award; expansion of social media presence on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn; debut of a new lead management program to facilitate rapid response time for web inquiries; a social media concierge program for agents; and extensive trainings and staff support to assist agents with the adoption of all the newest technology.
“Providing the highest level of both management and staff support to our agents, as well as the latest and best marketing and technology tools is vitally important to us,” stated Matthew Borland, Partner/Sales Manager, who was one of the driving forces behind much of the technological development at Zephyr over the past year. “It is what attracts new agents to our company, and what keeps them with us throughout their career.”
