Jennifer Branchini, an agent in the Pleasanton office of BHG Tri-Valley Realty, is the new President for the Bay East Association of REALTORS®.

A lifelong real estate agent, Jennifer has exciting plans for her local association. Real estate and entrepreneurship are in her blood; she grew up within a family of business owners and her aunt is Janet Cristano, broker/owner of BHG Tri-Valley Realty. By the time she was in her late teens, she was an assistant to a Blackhawk agent and was rapidly learning the business. Now she’s coming up on 16 years as a successful, top-producing agent.

“I want to congratulate Jennifer on this well deserved appointment,” said Ed Krafchow, CEO and Chairman of BHG Mason-McDuffie Real Estate, partner of BHG Tri-Valley Realty. “What I truly love about Jennifer is her complete commitment to her real estate career, and her very deep commitment to this industry. Jennifer serves her clients at the highest level and then serves this industry with the same care and appreciation she has for both buyers and sellers. I cannot imagine another person who deserves this acknowledgement more than Jennifer Branchini.”

“I’ve always been active within my state and local associations,” said Jennifer. “I’ve also developed a real drive for being a part of an effort that keeps up on the legislation and other issues that affect homeowners and REALTORS®. It’s one of my passions. I’ve paid my dues as an agent and spent many years working hard to walk my talk concerning professionalism and productivity.”
Jennifer is looking forward to being instrumental in implementing a range of services for the membership as well as working on issues that will continue to protect and preserve the benefits of homeownership. Some of the projects include:

  •     Working on keeping our local membership educated on professionalism and ethics, as well as conducting workshops on making the most of emerging technologies.
  •     Working with state and local legislatures to continue to educate them on the issues that affect homeownership, like outdated flood mapping and the importance of the mortgage rate deduction and other tax issues.
  •     Working on establishing a single point of entry for our MLS members.

“I have a family and a thriving real estate business but I’ve always made time to participate in all levels of the real estate business, from working as an agent to organizing and overseeing a range of political and educational efforts,” Jennifer said. “I love real estate, and I’ve always loved the job. It’s the people, relationships and the satisfaction I get when I’ve helped get a family into their dream home or out of a property that no longer serves its purpose. Real estate is an extremely valuable asset and it’s important to work on protecting REALTORS® and homeowners’ interests.”
Ms. Branchini lives in Pleasanton with her husband. They have three children.
