Intero Real Estate Services Inc, Announces New Leadership within the San Francisco Peninsula Region

Intero welcome's Dave Hobson to the San Francisco Peninsula team.

Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) July 09, 2014 - Intero Real Estate Services, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate and wholly owned subsidiary of HomeServices of America, Inc., announced a number of leadership changes that will further advance the company’s growth strategies. Effective immediately, Dave Hobson, former VP/Sales Manager of McGuire Real Estate’s Peninsula Office, assumes the role as VP and Managing Officer of the Intero San Mateo Office. Hobson replaces Larry Klapow, who will be transferring to the Intero Saratoga Office as Tom Tognoli moves into this new role as CEO.

In addition, Alain Pinel, who is General Manager of Intero Prestigio International and currently manages the Woodside and Menlo Park offices, will now oversee the growth of the Peninsula region in San Mateo, San Carlos, Woodside, Menlo Park and any new upcoming locations.

Hobson joins Intero with over 20 years of real estate experience throughout the San Francisco Peninsula including 10 years managing the Coldwell Banker Menlo Park office. He has overseen the details of nearly 5,000 listing and sales transactions in the most expensive and sought after zip codes in America. "Dave’s deep knowledge of the Peninsula luxury market along with his focus on mentoring and training will continue to strengthen Intero’s brand name in San Mateo and the upper Peninsula," states Tom Tognoli, CEO and President of Intero Real Estate Services.

Klapow, who has managed the Intero San Mateo office for the last 3 years, has over 20 years of experience in Bay Area real estate. Prior to his time at Intero, Klapow held various leadership roles at Coldwell Banker. "The Intero Saratoga Office has been my home for the last 10 years. It’s hard to leave but with Larry at the helm, I have complete faith this office will flourish from his veteran business acumen, his vibrant personality, and his proven leadership," says Tognoli.

He adds, "With Larry taking over in Saratoga, the addition of Dave to our team and with Alain overseeing the development of San Mateo County, we are now positioned to further expand into the main Peninsula markets and continue to grow our luxury home market share through Prestigio International."
