Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — Berkeley, Oakland and Piedmont real estate expert, the Grubb Company Realtors, recently held a celebratory breakfast to congratulate 80 personnel, 65 agents and 15 staff members for their accomplishments in 2011. The celebration culminated with an awards ceremony that honored the company’s 2011 Top Producers and announced that Bebe McRae of North Berkeley was the top realtor for the entire company.
“She’s a remarkable person,” D.J. Grubb said during the presentation. “She has the stamina and drive to lead our company, and the gift to us all is that she is a lovely human being.”
Grubb and John Karnay also presented awards to other producers, including Grubb Company real estate agents Anian Pettit Tunney, Dana Cohen (Cal ’85) and Mindy Scott, as well as top-producing loan representatives from La Salle Financial Services, an affiliate of the company. Grubb and Karnay celebrated Dianne Crosby as the top producer of mortgage and the team of Susan and Brady Thomas.
The award winners were given $1,000 to donate to a charity of their choice. McRae donated to the Berkeley Food and Housing Project, Tunney to George Mark Children’s House, Scott to First Place for Youth and Cohen to the Center for Young Entrepreneurs at Hass (YEAH).
The Grubb Company is proud of its philanthropy in the area and has been generous through the years with a number of Berkeley non-profit organizations, such as the Berkeley Public Library, the Berkeley Symphony, the Aurora Theatre and the Berkeley Public Education Foundation.
After all the awards were presented, Grubb shared his thoughts about the company and how it has remained independent and local, while most other major players have joined national brands. He also commented on how technology has impacted the business.
“The internet has not changed the industry. It has just created a world full of informed buyers. Even so, buyers are starving for opportunities to take action. The Realtors are more important in the transaction of properties than ever, and the Grubb Company has a distinct advantage because it has remained so involved in the communities–Berkeley, Oakland and Piedmont–that it serves,” Grubb said.
