San Francisco, CA – October 3, 2011 – (RealEstateRama) — Tara Donohue has been named Sales Manager of Zephyr’s West Portal Office. Donohue has been a San Francisco Realtor since 1998 and joined Zephyr in 2006, where she is a Top Producing Agent and a Seniors Real Estate Specialist.
Built upon years of experience in management and as a top producing real estate agent, Donohue brings an impressive skillset to the table, including tremendous leadership, problem solving, and interpersonal communications. She has been Assistant Sales Manager at both the Pacific Heights and West Portal offices for the past four years. She is a member in good standing in the San Francisco, California and National Associations of REALTORS®. She noted, “I am eager to begin this next phase in my career with Zephyr. Its culture meshes precisely with my philosophy of customer relationships, progressive technology and excellent work ethics.”
Donohue steps into the spot opened by Don Saunders upon his retirement. Saunders is leaving the industry after 33 years in the real estate business to enjoy a more leisurely lifestyle with his family, particularly “four marvelous grandchildren.” Saunders stated, “My time with Zephyr has been extremely rewarding, and the decision to retire was with mixed feelings, both delight to begin serious retirement and reluctance to leave such a vibrant company.”
“We wish Don the very best as he retires. He has been a tremendous asset to Zephyr,” commented Bill Drypolcher, President and Founder of Zephyr. “Although he will be missed, we expect to continue our long-standing relationship with him for a good long while.”
“We are pleased that Tara is ready and more than capable to take on the role of Sales Manager seamlessly and enthusiastically. She was the natural choice,” stated Randall Kostick, Chief Operating Officer. “She has a wealth of knowledge, and I know the West Portal office will continue to thrive under her management.”
