Zia Realty Group has officially become “Weichert REALTORS – The Zia Group”.
Owner/broker and founder James Chrobocinski and several of his associate brokers sat down Tuesday with the Los Alamos Daily Post to discuss how the change came about.
“I researched many real estate companies and found Weichert was by far the best,” Chrobocinski said. “I’m excited about franchising with Weichert because it’s going to bring a new level of service for us and our clients.”
Weichert REALTORS has grown from a single office in 1969, into one of the nation’s leading providers of real estate and related services. Weichert also is the largest family-owned real estate company in the nation, Chrobocinski said.
“Their success is rooted in their customer-first philosophy,” he said. “They make their organizational decisions based on building trust and sustaining amazing experiences at every step along their customers’ journey to homeownership.”
Chrobocinski explained that Weichert also leads the industry with the most comprehensive associate brokers training, development and mentorship programs.
“The company values associate education because, when they’re continuously nurtured with the latest information, tools and resources, their customers are rewarded with the very best service,” he said.
Weichert REALTORS – The Zia Group already has associate brokers operating in Los Alamos, White Rock, Espanola Valley, Santa Fe, Jemez Springs and the surrounding areas. The team includes longtime associate broker Davorah Gavron and Pearl White who is manager of the new company.
The rest of the team includes Carla Brewer, Marcus Hall, Sergio Castillo, Ramos Medina along with Fernando Sotelo and Jonathan Rivera who are just joining the team and Tristan Marshall and Chelsea Tousley who are completing their testing and will be coming onboard soon.
“Collectively we offer our clients more than a hundred years of experience in residential and commercial real estate as well as property management and home staging services, including virtual staging… and we are actively recruiting new brokers to join our team,” said Chrobocinski, a licensed real estate broker since 2004.
Gavron added that the new company brings more training and tools to enable them to bring better service to their clients.
“This includes more open houses to increase visibility for client properties … especially in this market,” Gavron said. “Also, Weichert’s referral system works throughout the United States and other countries so that’s to our clients’ advantage. Also, when new people come to town and see the Weichert name they know they can expect excellent service.”
Brewer joined ZRG in August of 2018.
“From my perspective I really like Weichert because they offer more training and more exposure and enhance my interaction with my clients,” Brewer said. “They have a lot of innovative ideas not currently in this community to provide better service for our clients.”
Weichert REALTORS – The Zia Group has opened an office at 13 Sherwood Blvd. Suite 6 in White Rock. This location is strategically located across N.M. 4 from the new housing development.
“We have a 6-seat golf cart to provide tours to homebuyers interested in that new development,” Chrobocinski said.
Chrobocinski said he is in the process of purchasing a building in Los Alamos and will begin operating an office there later this year.
