Dilbeck Real Estate, a leading real estate brokerage based in La Cañada, announced that the company has returned to its independent roots. Formerly known as Dilbeck Real Estate Real Living, the firm has been invited to affiliate with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE), the world’s largest network of premier independent real estate brokerages producing over one million transactions annually.
Dilbeck Real Estate is a family-owned organization dating back to 1950 with deep roots in the communities it serves. The company has 14 offices with approximately 600 sales associates, and annual home and commercial sales of nearly $1.5 billion.
“We have always been independently owned and operated,” said Mark Dilbeck, the company’s president, “and our franchise relationships have served us well in the past. We believe, however, that our strong local presence, coupled with the global connections and resources provided by our new affiliation with LeadingRE, will deliver value to our clients and associates in the years to come.”
LeadingRE is a global business-to-business real estate network comprising 500 market-leading firms with 3,500 offices and 120,000 associates throughout the U.S. and nearly 50 countries abroad, with annual home sales of $314 billion in 2013. Between 30,000 and 40,000 annual client introductions occur among members throughout the network. Its prestigious membership list includes 15 of the top 25 residential firms in the country. Based in Chicago, the organization also has offices in London and Singapore.
In addition to its Christie’s International Real Estate affiliation, Dilbeck Real Estate is becoming a member of Luxury Portfolio International®, the elite property division of LeadingRE. Luxury Portfolio International® is known for re-defining “New Luxury” for today’s experientially-focused, sophisticated affluent consumer and features $45.5 billion in high-end real estate on its LuxuryPortfolio.com award-winning website.
As a result of the transition, Dilbeck Real Estate will add a variety of resources, including a new website, an online learning platform and customer relationship management system for its associates and managers, a new consumer review program, and many other enhancements to benefit clients and associates.
“We are delighted to welcome the Dilbeck team to the LeadingRE family,” said Pam O’Connor, president/CEO of LeadingRE. “The company’s impressive history, high standards and established local strength and reputation make it an ideal fit for our strong global network, which promotes the growth of market-leading firms through a robust menu of business tools and exposure to the finest brokerages around the world.”
