A 12-year veteran of First Team Real Estate with an impressive sales record as a top-performing agent in the Huntington Beach and Costa Mesa markets, Jeremiah Secrest has risen to the position of Branch Manager of the Huntington Beach South location. As a highly successful real estate professional with well-established relationships within the First Team Huntington Beach South Office, Jeremiah is the ideal leader for this exceptional team of agents, known for their collaborative office atmosphere and proven market prowess.
“When an opportunity arose in Huntington Beach to be on our leadership team, Jeremiah was on the top of our wish list,” explains Michele Harrington, Broker of Record and COO of First Team Real Estate. “I really wasn’t sure he would want to give up the great track record he built as an agent, but he was up for the challenge of taking his skills and knowledge and bringing that into a leadership role in the organization. I could not be happier, and the agents are all very excited to have such a rock star at the helm of one of our strongest, and longest-standing First Team offices.”
Awarded the company’s highest honor, Jeremiah has repeatedly achieved Hall of Fame status for his exceptional sales success, standing out above the rest as a true market expert. “I have received a ‘Harvard’ education in real estate at First Team through the mentorship of our founder and CEO, Cameron Merage, as well as my first manager at the company, Chuck Grant, and I am humbled by the opportunity to now give back to so many others as a leader,” relates Jeremiah. “This team of Realtors is arguably one of the best and highest performing groups of professionals in the entire state, and I am truly excited to uphold First Team’s core values that have led to an amazing culture of integrity, excellence, and success over 40+ years.”
Jeremiah has immediately brought ingenuity and heart to his role as manager, hitting the ground running with his office to bring to life their beloved office Santa Day tradition. With coronavirus restrictions making their usual Santa Day extravaganza impossible, Jeremiah and his team got to work on the creative solution – Santa Claus is coming to Zoom!
This year, the North Pole Express Mailbox has been stationed outside of their office at 20100 Brookhurst Street, where children can submit their letters to the big man in red. On Saturday, December 12th, Santa will be available for two separate Zoom sessions to respond to letters and share stories from the North Pole. “Our Santa Day is a staple in the community with over 2,000 neighborhood visitors each year stopping by for their free picture with Santa Claus – we simply couldn’t go without some sort of celebration,“ explains Jeremiah. “We are all looking forward to keeping our favorite holiday tradition alive for our friends, family, and clients.” There will be a 1 pm and a 2:30 pm Zoom session available and if you’d like to register for some face time with Santa simply email email@example.com to receive your personal invitation.
Serving each and every agent’s needs so that they can continue to meet the needs of the community is Jeremiah’s top priority as the new branch manager. Focused on fine-tuning and bringing an additional real estate sales mindset to an already high performing team, he plans to build on top of the established, strong office foundation, carving out even more opportunities for future growth while continuing to bring clients home.
Jeremiah and his team are always searching for new members who can benefit from their office’s culture of sharing and collaboration, as well as the company’s robust tools, support, and luxury real estate growth opportunities.
