Sotheby’s International Realty brand strengthens presence in San Diego County market

Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty in San Diego recently announced Steve Games and Nyda Jones-Church have joined forces with Brian Arrington and are now partners in Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty.  Games will act as the company’s chairman of the board, Jones-Church its chief operating officer, and Arrington will remain as president and CEO. Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty operates eight offices in the San Diego market with locations in Point Loma, Coronado, La Jolla, Mission Hills and La Mesa. Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty has also acquired the Rancho Santa Fe office that was previously Coast/Hom Sotheby’s International Realty as well as the rights for Sotheby’s International Realty in San Diego County.

“Steve Games and Nyda Jones-Church bring a deep background of service and expertise in the San Diego market,” said Philip White, president and chief operating officer, Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC.  “Their vision, combined with the quality firm Brian Arrington has built, lays the groundwork for substantial growth in recruiting the region’s top talent and building the Sotheby’s International Realty brand’s market presence in the high-end markets of San Diego, Rancho Santa Fe, Del Mar, La Jolla and Coronado.  Steve and Nyda founded Pickford Realty in 1985 and since that time have the distinction of operating one of the top five real estate companies in America.  The strength of an established and growing luxury real estate firm coupled with the power of two market legends creates a very powerful union.”

According to Arrington, the addition of Games and Jones-Church will help create a market powerhouse.  “This is a pivotal time in San Diego’s real estate market, with great opportunities for future growth,” he said.  “Steve Games and Nyda Jones-Church bring further depth and breadth of experience to our management team as the company intensifies its push to become the leader in luxury residential real estate sales in San Diego.  We intend to open additional offices in other key locations in order to serve the most highly-desirable markets of San Diego County.”

“By joining forces with Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty we now have access to the cutting-edge marketing resources and global exposure of the Sotheby’s International Realty brand,” said Games.  “We have proudly served the San Diego community for nearly 30 years and look forward to working with Brian and his team to create the area’s leading expert in luxury real estate.”
