Our Company

Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno is driven by a simple idea. Better companies make better communities.

We believe our business has a responsibility to serve, connect, grow and protect the communities we operate in.

Leading local is important to us.

Christie’s International Real Estate Sereno is the world’s premier luxury real estate firm and brand. Our guiding principles that have made us the No. 1 independent real estate firm in Northern California: local, hands-on ownership; unmatched market knowledge; a culture of service; and most of all our commitment to our clients and communities.

Our founders wanted a real estate model that inspired agents and provided them with unparalleled support so they could care for clients in the best possible way. We place hyperlocal focus on the communities where we serve, live, work and contribute. This has created unique expertise and community intelligence that we use to benefit each and every client.

Our agent-driven Sereno 1% For Good Charitable Foundation is changing lives in local communities, and to date, generated over $5 million in charitable donations given to over 250 local organizations.

Our Process

Homeownership is a decision to invest in a place you love.

It’s important to work with an agent who represents your best interests. Learn more about how we approach homeownership and selling your home.

Our Values

Independence is worth preserving.

Our independence matters more than our size. It allows us to prioritize our community involvement and better serve our agents and clients.

Social impact at the center.

Everything we do has a cause and effect. We maintain a responsibility to contribute to every community in which we operate.

Communities over shareholders.

If our business has to grow at the expense of the communities around us, it isn’t worth it. It is important to us to continually invest in building community.

Growth for the sake of bigger impact.

We grow our business to become a stronger, independent network of individuals who benefit as a result of more resources.
