In 1972, John Jacobi established Windermere Real Estate with the dream of creating a family owned business that could handle the needs of buyers and sellers with integrity, and support the community it served. Today, his vision has become a reality in a network of over 300 offices and 7,000 agents. As part of the larger Windermere community, our agents can take advantage of a variety of programs and innovative services. These professional tools allow them to serve homebuyers and homesellers in a way that is unique to Windermere. Windermere Real Estate/Preferred Living in Brea, CA, is proud to continue that tradition of family oriented excellence.
Windermere Real Estate/Preferred Living
From our Grand Opening in May of 2010 until now; our franchise has seen tremendous growth. With over 55 agents and seven full-time staff members dedicated to the listing and purchasing of Orange County real estate, we couldn’t be happier with the success our newest venture has achieved. While our office continues to expand within in the North Orange County Real Estate market, we also serve Los Angeles County, San Bernardino County, the Inland Empire, as well as a substantial referral and relocation network spanning all of California and out-of-state clients.
Windermere Real Estate/Preferred Living is more than just a business; at Windermere Real Estate/Preferred Living, we are dedicated to investing into a better community, and a brighter future. Currently, we sponsor and volunteer for AYSO Soccer Chino Hills, Brea Little League, Servite Friar Football, Brea Olinda Girls Volleyball, Brea Girls Softball, The Eli Home, and The Boys and Girls Club with many more to follow.
Owners James and Andrea Marquez
James and Andrea are proud to serve their community as one of the only family owned and operated Real Estate firms in North Orange County. They have been married eighteen years and have been in business together for over twenty years, with their focus towards using the same values in their business that they do at home for their four children: Commitment, Consistentcy, and Connection. As entrepreneurs together, they own and operate eight companies including: Superior Tank Company, Inc., Superior Tank Solutions, Inc., The JTEE Corp., Superior Crane Service, Glomar Powder Coating, Marquez Enterprises LLC, Windermere Real Estate/Preferred Living, and A & L Partners, Inc. James and Andrea believe their strong foundation affirms both their commitment and promise to consistently produce positive results.
The Windermere Foundation
At Windermere Real Estate, every transaction makes a difference. The Windermere Foundation is a non-profit organization established in 1989, which receives a substantial amount of its contributions from our own agents. A portion of every commission a Windermere agent receives goes back to the foundation. The donations of Windermere agents, employees, and public supporters enable the Windermere Foundation to present over two million dollars annually to non-profit agencies supporting low-income families, local communities, and the homeless. To honor the tradition of community outreach and support, our office closes its doors twice a year, once in June and once in October for our community outreach project: to give back to the community which so generously has given to us.
