Fresh from being named the most trusted name in Southern California real estate for the third straight year, First Team Real Estate today announced that it was expanding its ability to serve the fast growing luxury estate home market by naming Julie Kozich as Managing Director of First Team Estates, the company’s luxury division.

"First Team has been the most trusted brand in real estate for years because of our commitment to unlocking value and serving buyers and sellers," said Chris Pollinger, Senior Vice President, Sales for First Team Real Estate. "Julie has led premium sales efforts in luxury estates across the United States and especially in Orange County for years and her talent will add incredible resources and energy to our team."

A recently released long term study of real estate sales showed that on average First Team represented transactions earned home sellers an additional premium equal to more than $40,000 on the sale of a $1 million home. When compared to last year, First Team Estates market share growth grew by 38% over its nearest competitor and over 8 times faster than the other three leading brands combined.

"It's great to be part of a team that truly understands how to unlock premium for luxury home owners," said Julie Kozich. "First Team Estates is the leading brand in this market specifically because our agents have the resources and background to unlock great opportunities for buyers and sellers. I look forward to helping grow our success."

Prior to joining First Team Estates as the Managing Director, Ms. Kozich led luxury real estate sales and business development for leading brands across the United States, including Orange County, CA; Bainbridge Island, Washington; and North Carolina. Her efforts have helped complete hundreds of millions in transactions and led her to be named one of the Top 50 Up and Coming Real Estate Brokers in the United States by RIS Real Estate Magazine.

"First Team has grown into its marketing leading position in luxury estates in part because we continually invest in resources, training, and developing our team," explained Chris Pollinger. "Julie is a great fit for our team and her experience serving the sophisticated buyers and sellers in this market will help extend our leadership in this key market."
