Prudential California Realty announced today that Ron Sparks has been named regional manager for San Diego. In his new role Sparks will assume management responsibilities for Prudential’s offices in Rancho Santa Fe, and continue serving as manager of the recruiting and education department in San Diego.
“Ron is a tremendous asset to our company,” said David M. Cabot, CEO. “He is not only capable of drawing from his diverse experience in real estate to form thought-provoking insights, but also proficient with transferring his ideas to paper or communicating them to large audiences.”
Previously the director of education and recruiting for a major brokerage in San Diego, Sparks has earned national recognition for his ability to develop engaging training materials, managerial skills and talent as a motivational speaker. A 30-year veteran of the real estate industry, his background includes time spent as a mortgage loan officer, manager and top producing agent.
Most recently Sparks held the position of managing vice president for a large residential brokerage in the state of Washington, with 32 regional offices. As the general sales manager and corporate media spokesperson, he developed a talent for helping his agents deliver successful closings and became one of the most frequently quoted real estate professionals in the Northwest, appearing in such media outlets as HGTV’s “Million Dollar Room,” KIRO-TV and radio, and the Puget Sound Business Journal.
Leeann Iacino, COO of Prudential, stated that, “Ron is very likable and highly charismatic, so it was no surprise for me to learn that he was able to recruit over 100 agents a year during the time he was in San Diego. The depth and scale of his knowledge encompasses multiple aspects of real estate, and we are proud to have him on the team.”
“It’s an honor for me to be with an industry leader like Prudential,” notes Sparks, “and I look forward to many years of helping the company’s sales associates chart a path to success.”
Sparks lives in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego and plays the lead blues guitar in his spare time. He is an expectant grandfather and has three adult children.
