Cordon Real Estate

John Souerbry, Broker/Owner of Cordon Real Estate, entered the industry in 2003 when he signed on with a large real estate office in San Diego, California. John originally focused on mortgage lending, but by 2005 began dealing in residential and investment properties. Within a couple years he formed John A. Souerbry & Associates, providing brokerage and property management services. John relocated to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2007, where he continued to provide real estate services to buyers, sellers, investors, estates in probate and trusts. The business soon expanded its service area to include not only Silicon Valley, but also the East Bay and Wine Country.

The name change to Cordon Real Estate took place in January 2016. Our first custom For Sale sign (below) was hung in front of a Pebble Beach, California townhome that enjoys this view of the Pacific Ocean and the 14th Hole at the Links At Spanish Bay golf course (Sold for $3.65M, escrow closed March 30, 2016).
