Julie Dudum Del Santo Opens Dudum Real Estate Group in Walnut Creek

East Bay entrepreneur translates successful “cooperation, not competition”
model to her own real estate brokerage


Walnut Creek, CA, July 05, 2010 – Julie Del Santo, a local real estate broker, who comes from a long line of Bay Area entrepreneurs, announced the opening of her own real estate brokerage, Dudum Real Estate Group, located at 1910 Olympic Blvd., #100, in Walnut Creek.  Parlaying the success of her Dudum Real Estate Team, which she operated within two different large brokerages, Julie founded this brokerage on the same concept of “cooperation, not competition.”

“We’re different from the historical model of many brokerages. When one of our agents is working with a buyer or seller they openly share solutions and information with the group and leverage the group’s combined expertise whenever necessary,” said Julie Del Santo, founder and broker/owner of the Dudum Real Estate Group. “We don’t compete over clients.  We’re professional and experienced real estate agents and brokers all aligned to a service-focused work ethic and giving the best possible experience we can to our clients.  Each agent is independent, yet the energy created by the cooperative spirit results in satisfied clients and smooth transactions.”

Ms. Del Santo comes from a long line of successful family business owners. She was born and raised in the Bay Area, is a graduate of St. Mary’s College in Moraga, and started her career in real estate in 1999.  In 2000, Julie joined Coldwell Banker in Danville where she became “Rookie of the Year” then moved to the company’s Walnut Creek office in 2002, where in June 2003 she became the Assistant Manager.  She was with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage until May 2006, when she had the opportunity to join Empire Realty Associates, and was there until April 2010.

She brings her team of seven, plus 8 others to this dynamic brokerage (list of names follows release), including longtime local industry leader, Stan Muncer, who joins the brokerage as assistant manager.

Based in Walnut Creek, Dudum Real Estate Group Realtors cover a wide territory from west of Berkeley, continuing east along the Highway 24 corridor, through Lamorinda, as well as the communities along both north and south Highway 680, from Alamo to Livermore and Alameda to Clayton.  The Dudum Real Estate Group agents have expertise in multiple aspects of residential real estate, including luxury real estate home sales, relocation, foreclosures, short sales, leasing and many others.
