Top Agent Network, Inc. Launches Chapters in Alameda County, California
San Francisco (4/20/12) – Top Agent Network (TAN), the private online business community for local top real estate agents, launched 2 new chapters in Alameda County, California. Supporting the launch are several leading Alameda County real estate agents acting as Charter Members. With the addition of these new chapters, Top Agent Network completes its circle of the San Francisco Bay Area.
Membership in Top Agent Network allows top-ranked real estate agents to share exclusive, Pre/Non-MLS real estate information via the network’s sophisticated online communications platform. TAN’s advance notifications and insightful information exchange among trusted peers allow members to provide an unprecedented level of service to their clients, resulting in happier clients and more home sales.
“Sharing Pre/Non-MLS real estate information with one another is something that top agents have been doing forever,” says Top Agent Network Founder and CEO David Faudman. “Unfortunately, this sharing was very haphazard and inefficient. That’s why I created Top Agent Network. As soon as agents become members, they start making connections that lead to home sales and to happier clients.”
The introduction of the Alameda North and Alameda South chapters bring the total number of TAN chapters to 16. TAN has chapters flourishing on both coasts, and plans to launch chapters in Nassau County, New York and Scottsdale, Arizona in the next month.
Local Charter Members
The launches of Top Agent Network’s Alameda North and Alameda South chapters are being supported by a group of visionary, highest top-producing agents serving as local Charter Members
Charter Members of TAN’s Alameda North chapter are Kim and Barbara Marienthal (Coldwell Banker Northern California, Berkeley), Ira Serkes (Pacific Union/Christie’s International, Berkeley) and Daniel M.

These geographic designations mimic local real estate market dynamics and keep TAN relevant to local, residential real estate.
