San Francisco, Calif., Nov. 5, 2018 Pacific Union International real estate was recently honored as the winner of the “All-Star Award for Real Estate Support Services” by Altair Global. The independent, global mobility-management company offers comprehensive relocation and assignment solutions in more than 180 countries, and it hosted an awards ceremony at a global conference in Seattle in October to present the award to the brokerage.

Pacific Union received the award for achieving excellent results in the delivery of mobility support services, expertise, active participation in industry associations, stakeholder collaboration, knowledge sharing, effective communication, supply-chain management, cost stewardship, and a strong customer focus. Altair Global chose Pacific Union to receive this honor out of hundreds of real estate services providers throughout the U.S., according to Pacific Union Vice President of Business Development Teresa Howe.

“We could not have achieved this award without the excellent work of our relocation staff and team of real estate professionals,” she says. “They consistently go above and beyond what is expected of them to ensure a customer experience beyond any other.” Pacific Union Vice President of Relocation Services Jill Silvas continues, “We are so fortunate to have a partner such as Altair Global. They are supportive and truly understand what it means to work as a team to achieve success.”

In August 2018, Pacific Union merged with Compass to create the largest residential real estate firm in California.
