Empire Realty Associates is a local real estate brokerage founded in 2002 by 23 agents and Chairman of the Board Judi Keenholtz, based on the belief that the client is best served by a small brokerage with deep roots in the community.
Many of the founding partners have worked in local real estate for 20 years. Empire Realty has since grown to nearly 100 associates who work from two beautiful offices, one in Danville and one in downtown Walnut Creek. Empire Realty is a founding member of the Artisan Group comprised of the top local brokerages from Napa to Tahoe to the Bay Area. Empire Realty’s membership in the Leading Real Estate Companies of the World and Residence International further positions the company as an industry authority on luxury real estate. In addition, Empire Realty Associates Luxury Home Marketing Team consists of 30 local real estate sales professionals with over 300 years of experience, who continue a tradition of providing exceptional service to the finest luxury home clientele in the Diablo, Lamorinda, and Tri-Valley communities.
What makes Empire Realty different is our culture, meaning “our approach to business.” We share the knowledge and resources to put our clients’ needs at the center of each transaction. Empire Realty’s executive team and talented staff create a thriving, energetic environment to support the goals of our partners and associates.
