IRVINE, CA—Sperry Van Ness International Corp. has expanded its presence in California with the addition of a franchise office in San Rafael, Calif. Sperry Van Ness/MG Property Advisors Inc. will be led by Managing Director Gary Gustafson and Senior Advisor Martin Perlmutter.

The new office will focus on a national net leased property sales program as well as office and industrial sales within the North Bay market.

“For many years, I’ve admired the Sperry Van Ness®philosophy that a transparent commercial real estate market is better for both brokers and clients,” Gustafson said, in a statement. “That mission, combined with marketing tools that make the sales job more efficient and productive, made joining SVNIC the easiest and best choice.”
