About Village


Village. Of Course

Village Associates was founded in 2000 by 16 top producing Lamorinda agents. For 22 years we have remained the #1 independent brokerage in Contra Costa County, while many others have come and gone. 

  • Village is a powerhouse of talent that has transformed the local real estate scene and is Lamorinda’s leading independent brokerage with just 25 top producing agents.
  • Unlike other brokerages, we are highly selective about who is invited to join the company - only the best of the best, experienced agents can come to Village. 
  • Our business model is different. Village is agent-owned and intentionally designed to serve its clients - not a corporation. Our independence allows us to act solely with our buyers’ and sellers’ needs in mind, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
  • Village agents have deep local roots - we are highly involved in our schools and community.
  • While our marketing reach is global, our headquarters are in downtown Orinda, and we are supported by a dedicated back office staff of marketing specialists.

Market Leading Performance

Since the company was established, Village has regularly out performed all other independent real estate firms in the Lamorinda area in every key measure of comparison. In fact, nearly one of every four transactions taking place in Lamorinda since the inception of the firm has been facilitated by a Village Associate.
