DATE: 2008-08-23

The timing for Sacramento Tenant Advisors “STC” (www.sactotenantadvisors.com) entry into the Sacramento Central California Valley real estate market was based on the philosophy that has been carried from Synergy Real Estate Group, Corporate Advisory LLC (www.synreg.com), it's mother company with offices in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Inland Empire, Irvine and San Diego with over 54 associate offices in key markets throughout the US and Canada.

"Finding the ideal combination of top quality talent that shares our no-conflict, tenant representation only approach to client service is a rare find in the US," said John Galaxidas, CEO, Synergy Real Estate Group, Corporate Advisory LLC and founder of Sacramento Tenant Advisors.

"Synergy Real Estate Group, Corporate Advisory LLC and Sacramento Tenant Advisors not only shares this approach, they have demonstrated how it ultimately delivers outstanding results in Sacramento and Placer Counties, one nation's fastest growing counties in the nation," said Galaxidas.

STA will distinguish itself in the Sacramento marketplace, Galaxidas said, by its "Performance Guarantee" of service in which compensation is based on the client's satisfaction with STA's performance.
