Our Philosophy

Those intrinsic values are what make our real estate transactions successful.

They form our standard for how we do business.

And who we transact with.

Our philosophy explains why your project begins a client & broker relationship made to last.

This is a people business.

You’re at the center of everything we do. Real estate is what we use to help you achieve your goals.

We use our deep network to get you everything you need.

People rely on people for results. We’ve forged numerous relationships over the years with vendors, brokers, accountants, attorneys, even doctors that we can refer our clients to if the request is beyond our scope. We will always find the connection you need to achieve your goals.

We’ll always take your call.

Our founding Principal, Christopher Sparacino, had a mantra instilled in him from day one that still rings true throughout our firm: always answer your phone. We’re well aware that the level of compensation for our transactions warrants your advisor being on-call whenever you need them to solve any issues when doing business.

We find creative solutions, no matter how complex your problem is.

We always begin a process with a Client Needs Assessment to ensure we fully understand your requirements. From there, we produce a Strategic Analysis with all the factors affecting your current situation and options in remarkable detail. Finally, we continually work with you to update the document with changes in the market and your life as they’re happening.


Our advice is the lifeblood of our reputation. Our priority is to make sure you feel you know all of the options available to you, so you can act when you’re ready.

“Chris was instrumental in reaching out to brokers and owners to generate on- and off-market exchange opportunities. Chris was able to produce an off-market opportunity I couldn't pass up and in addition to that, negotiated very favorable seller financing terms.”

Greg Pasquali California

“Chris conducted himself in a very professional manner and was extremely responsive to Redwood's request. He worked diligently to obtain appropriate buyers for these properties and as conscientious in meeting closing deadlines. We would strongly recommend Chris Sparacino as a listing broker. ”

Michael Burwell, President California

“Of all the professional talents that Chris demonstrated, as mentioned above, he excelled when it came to working with the tenants of the building and relieving their fears as to what might happen to them in conjunction with the building changing ownership”

Walter Harris California

“I contacted Chris to help us sell a property in Berkeley. Berkeley has its own set of rules and regulations which I find somewhat complicated. Chris was very familiar with those regulations thus extremely helpful in the sale. I feel Chris went above and beyond most realtors in making the transaction as smooth and simple for us. In dreading a sale because of all the work that is required, I soon realized Chris was able to lift that burden from me and handle most of it himself.”

Lydia Sanchez California

“Chris is a person of high ethical, moral, and professional standards, reflected in his work. As such, his outstanding client focus and personal service, impressive market knowledge, exceptional work ethic, and high level of integrity served me well.”

Matt Naumann, Vice President CBRE Texas

“To sum things up, I believe Chris is a very ethical, intelligent and responsive real estate professional who I would highly recommend to anyone needing commercial real estate services or representation.”

John Pinjyv, Western Alliance Commercial, Inc. Nevada
