Coldwell Banker Realty has signed Sarah Kosasky to manage its Malibu and Topanga offices. Kosasky was with Compass two years, where she managed the Malibu and Beverly Hills offices. She counted Coldwell Banker’s blend of technology, brokerage knowledge, enhanced leadership opportunities and support among the reasons for making the leap.
Kosasky is a past president of the Malibu Association of Realtors, was named 2015 Malibu Realtor of the Year by the Malibu Association of Realtors, and for many years served as a director for the California Association of Realtors. She serves on multiple committees devoted to guiding the future of real estate at the statewide and local level. Due to her commitment to excellence in real estate and the community of Malibu, Kosasky was honored with commendations from the City of Malibu, the County of Los Angeles and the State Senate, and she is frequently invited to speak at conferences on real estate best practices.
“I am excited and optimistic. When analyzing the brokerage landscape I also took a deep look at my own values and aspirations. What became apparent very quickly was my deep love for and commitment to the real estate business and the agents who work within it. My goal is to serve Realtors, their clients and the industry at the highest level and Coldwell Banker is in alignment with that goal. The company has the right mix of technology, brokerage knowledge, and support. My partnership with Coldwell Banker has added meaning because it allows me to do the work I enjoy based in a community that has a sizable space in my heart,” said Kosasky.
Kosasky entered the real estate business in her 20s when she joined a brokerage to brand and create marketing collateral and strategy for a start-up brokerage in Malibu. She earned her broker’s license and served as broker of record for the company until she opened her own firm which she later sold to Partners Trust where she stayed on as a founding member until the brokerage was sold to Pacific Union. Compass Purchased Pacific Union in 2018.
“Sarah is a strong advocate of women in leadership, an outstanding coach, and is ideal to lead our Malibu and Topanga offices,” said Jamie Duran, president of Coldwell Banker Realty, Southern California. “She is incredibly talented, has been deeply embedded in the local community for many years and the fact that she was highly recommended by so many of our agents speaks to her ability to attract talent and grow the business. We’re thrilled to welcome her to our Coldwell Banker family.”
“Our Malibu and Topanga offices will be in great hands under Sarah’s leadership. She’s an extremely growth-minded leader who has supported agents’ businesses and inspired them to achieve more than they ever thought imaginable, and we’re excited to include her energy at Coldwell Banker,” said Tamara Robinson, regional vice president of Coldwell Banker, Southern California.
