On Monday, we caught up with local Cassidy Turley boss Dan Broderick, who says the recent merger of the San Diego affiliates into the Washingon, DC-based parent firm was a logical decision. He believes the affiliate model is unsustainable. Dan is shown with wife Megan and daughtersBrynn and Molly at their Labor Day block party in La Jolla. The theme waswigs and 'stashes, and Dan notes Molly "was the only one who followed orders." (In a month or so, she'll be all set to rock Movember.)
Dan will continue to run the six-office San Diego operation, which has a total headcount of about 185, including folks in property management and project and development services. For 25 years, the former affiliates have been a wholly owned company, owned by the producers, and had various affiliations (some better than others) over that time. He says they finally decided to formalize things and sell to Cassidy Turley because ofcommonalities--culturally, professionally, and vision of where the brokerage industry is headed.
