Southern California real estate powerhouse Prudential California Realty, one of the nation’s largest residential brokerages, has appointed real estate executive Leeann Iacino, past CEO of a leading Denver-real estate brokerage, as its Chief Operating Officer, overseeing more than 60 real estate offices and 3,000 broker-agents from Santa Maria and Santa Barbara, south to Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego.
“This has been an extensive search that’s resulted in acquiring an exceptionally talented and accomplished executive,” said David M. Cabot, President and Chief Executive Officer of Prudential California Realty. “We’re coming into a market that’s full of extraordinary opportunities; Leeann is a professional with both the experience and the leadership skills to complement our company.” According to Cabot, Iacino will directly manage Prudential California’s multiplicity of offices, while integrating new information technologies into sales management and marketing systems. She will also create training programs for agents that unlock opportunities for effective personal marketing and sales, using new media.
“It’s a great opportunity to work in California at this moment in time, for a company with Prudential California Realty’s prominence and potential,” Iacino said in accepting the position. “Those of us who have spent careers in real estate are more than familiar with challenging markets; but also with how those situations can shift, and how we can take advantage of a rising market to serve our clients and better our market share.”
Iacino is one of the nation’s most respected and innovative real estate professionals, for her expertise in training and information systems, as well as sales management. A top-selling agent with legendary Colorado broker Moore and Company, in 1999 she founded Colorado-based Prestige Real Estate Group, an independent company that grew to 350 agents and amassed $1.1 billion in sales covering the entire Denver-Boulder area. In 2009 Iacino engineered a merger between two of the leading real estate brokerages in the Denver area to create one the region’s largest brokerages. As its CEO she watched it grow into one of Colorado’s highest producing companies, with 750 agents that dominated sales in many of Denver’s higher priced suburban neighborhoods. Throughout her career, Iacino has repeatedly gained recognition for her public service work, both on behalf of established organizations like Boys and Girls Clubs and the Susan G. Komen Foundation; as well as in creating new Realtor-based charities that identify families in her agents’ communities that face health and other crises, channeling direct support to them through exceptional volunteer involvement and a minimum of overhead expense.
With over 3,000 sales associates in 60 offices across Southern California and the Central Coast, Prudential California Realty is one of the top five brokerages in the nation and the largest company in the Prudential Real Estate international network. Prudential California Realty is proud to be a member of HomeServices of America Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate.
