Paragon Real Estate Group Establishes Its Footprint in the North Bay with Two Offices in Marin County


1407879529GREENBRAE, CA – Paragon proudly announces the opening of its first Marin office at 100 Drakes Landing Road in Greenbrae. A second Marin location will be opening in southern Marin later this fall. Future growth plans include expansion into Sonoma and Napa counties.

Cyd Gardner, a veteran Marin manager, will head operations and lead the expansion, according to Earl Shuttleworth, Paragon’s North Bay president. With nearly 30 years expertise, Gardner managed Frank Howard Allen’s Greenbrae office, which has been their number one office in both unit sales and dollar volume.

Prior to entering the real estate industry, Gardner was a registered nurse. She views both professions similarly, in that they both require excellent listening skills, decisive counsel and expert care.

“People are the living reality of this business and my previous years as a nurse provide me the ability to exercise compassion and guidance in stressful situations,” Gardner comments.

A long-time Marin resident, she understands the North Bay lifestyle and what makes it such a desirable place to live. “We will offer intelligent, insightful solutions and nimble service tailored to the individual needs of each and every client,” says Gardner.

Gardner is committed to building a supportive environment for A-list Realtors to provide Marin-centric expertise to their clients. Passionate about her role as a mentor and creative problem solver, she is delighted to be a part of a progressive and collaborative management team that thrives under local ownership.

“Marin is a strategically important market for Paragon and we look forward to growing here and welcoming new agents. We’re delighted to have Cyd join our dynamic team. Her deep roots in Marin and strong leadership skills are valuable assets to Paragon,” said Robert Dadurka, CEO of Paragon Real Estate Group.

Having recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, Paragon is currently brokering over $1.8 billion in annual Bay Area real estate sales. Year over year, Paragon’s sales volume has increased by 49 percent.
