The community is invited to Zia Realty Group’s first year anniversary celebration at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 12 at 1460 Trinity, Suite 1.
Zia Realty Group opened its doors in September 2012 with just one associate, its owner James Chrobocinski, and a goal to have offices throughout New Mexico within seven years. After one year, it looks like they are well on their way.
Zia Realty Group now has 25 agents and with their expansion into the Jemez they now have 125 listings. They opened their second office in Santa Fe in May with plans to enter the Albuquerque market in the spring.
Chrobocinski credits the explosive growth of his company to the hard work and dedication of his associate brokers.
“I am blessed to have such dedicated associates,” he said. “We all work very well together and have become like family. It is great to have so many Realtors supporting each other to find success.”
During the last year, REA and Los Alamos Properties joined Zia Realty Group. Their former owners, Pearl White and David Horpedahl now play key roles within Zia Realty Group.
Growth has not been without growing pains, Chrobocinski said.
“One of the most difficult things we have been trying to accomplish is a website that provides the best property searches,” he said. “We are proud to announce that we will be launching a new site in September that boasts some of the best property search technology available. We want to be able to provide the best service to our clients.”
One person will win a $1,000 gift certificate to The Finishing Touch at the Sept. 12 anniversary celebration. Zia Realty Group and The Finishing Touch partnered up this summer for this promotion.
Due to continued demand, the deadline for the drawing has been extended to Sept. 12. Anyone can sign up for the drawing at the anniversary celebration or by calling Zia Realty Group at (505) 662-8899.
