A leading real estate analyst on the Monterey Peninsula since 1989, Paul Brocchini's established real estate career transcends location and languages. A native of Oakland, California with his B.A. and M.A. degrees from University of California at Berkeley, Paul's life has spanned the globe. Fluent in English, Spanish and Portuguese, Paul founded his own company in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil before expanding his business and relocating to the Monterey Peninsula in 1978 where he and his wife Nellie opened The Pewter Shop in The Barnyard in Carmel before beginning what would prove to be a successful real estate partnership.
Working together since 1994, Nellie and Paul were consistently in Coldwell Banker's regional Top 100 list. In 2007, Paul tragically lost his wife and business partner. Determined to continue their legacy, Paul established a new business partnership with Mark Ryan, where the two continued on with the successful tradition established by Paul and Nellie and have remained in Coldwell Banker's Top 100 list year over year. Mark then joined Paul in their weekly column featuring real estate analysis for The Carmel Pine Cone.
