IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 15, 2018 – First Team Real Estate is pleased to announce the addition of Robin Milonakis and Greg Herder to its executive team. Joining the organization as Regional Vice President, Milonakis will work out of First Team's Newport Beach location, where she'll lead the office's sales associates as Manager while working to amplify the company's presence along Southern California's coastline. Meanwhile, Herder—also based at the Newport Beach location—will serve as First Team's Assistant Regional Manager, and will focus on growing agents' productivity while working to expand the organization.

An energetic, dynamic professional who's widely regarded as one of the industry's premier leaders, Milonakis' name is practically synonymous with her unparalleled ability to take real estate organizations to the next level of success. Previously, she headed up Keller Williams Realty South Bay as CEO and Business Coach, bringing over a decade of experience as a proven real estate expert to her role. Concurrently, she leads RM Sports Media, Inc.—a branding and image consulting firm for celebrities and professional athletes, which she founded in 2012—as President and Chief Visionary Officer.

Likewise, Herder—formerly the founder and CEO of industry renowned Hobbs Herder Advertising, a role he held for 29 years—brings to his new position a wealth of expertise and a proven track record for success. Having driven the trajectory of countless real estate professionals by offering innovative education, business-building systems, strategies and techniques, he's known throughout the real estate community as the father of personal marketing—and he's passionate about helping agents unlock their fullest potential.

“Having called the coastal areas of both Orange and Los Angeles counties home myself, and having helped countless clients bring their real estate objectives to fruition up and down Southern California's coastline, I understand how to successfully navigate virtually every single one of the area's marketplaces,” Milonakis remarked. “I'm honored to leverage this knowledge and experience to expand First Team Real Estate, whose philosophies as an organization are very much in sync with my own.”

Added Herder, “I am passionate not only about helping clients succeed in Southern California's real estate markets, but about helping agents realize their complete potential, sharing the knowledge I've acquired over the last 30 years. That's why I'm thrilled to embark on this next phase of my career at First Team Real Estate, working alongside Robin Milonakis to expand the organization's presence into Los Angeles and throughout California.”

“Robin and Greg bring to the table a unique blend of professional experience, along with an unparalleled understanding of Southern California's coastal real estate markets, proving a highly strategic complement to our organization's growth objectives,” explained Michael Mahon, President of First Team Real Estate. “I'm delighted to have them on board as leaders of our Newport Beach office, spearheading our plans to expand First Team's brand and presence throughout the state of California.”
