This newest addition, located in the heart of Oakland near the iconic Claremont Country Club, brings Corcoran Global Living to more than 2,800 independent real estate professionals across more than 80 offices with combined annual sales of $11 billion.
"We’re delighted to welcome Andy Read and the entire Caldecott Properties team to the Corcoran Global Living family. This impressive group of associates has been ranked as a Top 25 East Bay residential real estate brokerage over the past decade, receiving much press coverage and accolades,” commented Michael Mahon, Chief Executive Officer of Corcoran Global Living. “Together, we will continue to set and exceed our own records and to make a difference for the people and communities we serve.”
This latest expansion deepens Corcoran Global Living’s reach throughout the Bay Area and Northern California, and includes the leadership of Andy Read, founder, and owner of Caldecott Properties. Read joins the leadership team as a partner of Corcoran Global Living.
“Independent since 2005, Caldecott Properties is ecstatic to become part of Corcoran Global Living,” remarked Read. “The team, the technology, and the comprehensive West Coast presence make this the perfect partnership for us. We are excited to offer our clients CGL's reach outside of the East Bay along with their expansive brand recognition."
Read further commented, “In the ever-changing real estate landscape, given the desire and the need for cutting edge technology, a cooperative policy for off-market listings, brand recognition across the country, and recent high-end acquisitions, this was definitely the right time and the right place for this partnership. We are impressed by the entire CGL team and all they have to offer.”
Prior to founding Caldecott Properties in 2005, Read began his real estate career in New York City and also worked as a Sales Associate for San Francisco-based Lofts Unlimited. Read was listed as one of the top 50 producing real estate agents in the Bay Area and has brokered more than $1 billion in East Bay sales. The East Bay consists of a wide range of urban cities and rural townships including Oakland, Berkeley, Piedmont, Lafayette, Walnut Creek, Orinda, Alamo, and Danville, along with renowned communities like Blackhawk, Diablo, & Wilder.
