SACRAMENTO — Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, Northern California’s leading real estate service company, announced today that it has expanded its marketing support team with the hiring of Heather Tornincasa as the new Sacramento/Tahoe regional marketing manager as well as a dozen marketing coordinators to be placed in each office throughout the area.
The company is responding to the strong demand from home buyers and sellers for premium services in today’s market.
“As the local real estate market improves and sellers expect more for their homes, there is an increasing demand for agents to provide even greater marketing services to their customers,” said Kris Vogt, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “Our company is ready to meet those expectations and, with our expanded marketing team, we’re providing agents, and their clients, with all the tools necessary for success.”
This is the latest phase of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s plan to increase the level of marketing support it offers agents. Locally, the company has built an advertising and marketing partnership with business publication, Comstock’s Magazine. In addition, a digital division was added to Coldwell Banker’s corporate marketing department to focus on social media and building leads for agents through online resources.
In her new position, Tornincasa will provide personalized training on Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s marketing tools and support to the company’s affiliated agents, and oversee the development and execution of the company’s extensive marketing plan for the Sacramento/Tahoe region. She will also work closely with the area’s marketing coordinators – staff members in each office who provide one-on-one marketing assistance to agents.
“Bringing Heather on board as our regional marketing manager is a great source of pride for me and Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage,” said Vogt. “It’s long been a goal to provide more personalized support to agents and focus on offering the most innovative and expansive marketing tools possible. With Heather’s leadership and our new marketing coordinators, we are accomplishing that.”

She also oversaw Web development, designed and optimized Web pages to boost the company’s visibility in search engines, and was responsible for increasing Web traffic and leads. In addition, she served as the lead sales trainer for Wolfgang Puck and worked in helping its sales team on education and use of the company’s tools and services.
