Coldwell Banker Recruits $121M Producing DeSouza Team


One of La Jolla’s top-producing teams, the DeSouza Team led by Dennis DeSouza, has associated with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. The team’s current office in Bird Rock will become Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s 24th office location in Greater San Diego, expanding the company’s sphere of influence throughout Southern California even further. DeSouza brings more than 22 years of real estate experience and is backed by a team comprised of agents averaging over 11 years of experience each. “The decision to come to Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage was an easy one. The power of the company’s marketing systems for luxury homes, where we specialize, really sets this brand apart from the competition,” said Dennis DeSouza.

Prior to associating with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, DeSouza and his team, which consists of four agents and one administrative assistant, worked with RE/MAX Associates, La Jolla, where they were ranked the No. 1 team in 2016.

From June 30, 2015 to July 1, 2016, DeSouza and his team had more than $121 million in sales. His team closed 103 transaction sides with an average sales price of just under $1.2 million. In 2016, they closed the highest sale in La Jolla year to date, which was a $14 million oceanfront residence, as well as the highest residential sale in San Diego County within the last two years, which was an approximately 18,000-square-foot mansion that sold for $17.7 million.

“We are absolutely thrilled to join forces with Dennis and his influential and vibrant team of luxury professionals including Ever Eternity, Craig Hulbert, Leslie Huntley and Theresa Panish,” said Jamie Duran, President of Orange County, Desert, and San Diego companies.  “The sales muscle this team brings is key to further expanding the company’s luxury footprint along the coast and in helping better serve our consumers.”

Branch manager of the La Jolla office of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Jeff Nunn, added, “They bring with them a tremendous amount of expertise in luxury home sales, marketing, and world-class client service. The addition of their Bird Rock office to the Coldwell Banker® network also marks the company’s fourth La Jolla branch, demonstrating a clear commitment to expanding services to the coastal market.”

Beyond DeSouza’s impressive accomplishments, what sets him apart as a real estate trailblazer is his comprehensive understanding of the fundamental principles which drive industry trends. “I feel what we do as agents is a big part of our economy since we are involved in very large financial transactions,” said DeSouza. “This is a responsibility that I do not take lightly. To see all the pieces come together and have extremely satisfied clients really adds to the appeal of this business.”

Speaking further to the team’s accolades, DeSouza said, “We have a very dynamic team that mostly grew up here, went to local schools and have in-depth knowledge of the neighborhoods of San Diego. They are the most professional agents with the highest integrity I have ever seen in this business. I believe our extremely talented team are the absolute best real estate agents in San Diego and our numbers prove it!”
