Pacific Union Real Estate
Pacific Union is the leading luxury real estate brand in California. For us, “luxury” is measured by the quality of our people and our service — not the price of a property.
Founded in 1975, Pacific Union was acquired by CEO Mark A. McLaughlin in 2009. Since then, McLaughlin has grown the company from $2.1 billion in sales volume 2009 to $10.8 billion in 2016. Pacific Union has achieved this growth both organically and through strategic mergers. In October 2015, Pacific Union acquired San Francisco-based The Mark Company, which specializes in sales and marketing for new urban residential developments. Pacific Union expanded its footprint to Southern California by merging with John Aaroe Group in December 2016 and Partners Trust in August 2017 before joining forces with Gibson International in December 2017. In October 2017, Pacific Union acquired Danville-based brokerage Empire Realty Associates.
