Local Real Estate Experts
Christie’s International Real Estate | Sereno
Born and raised amidst the charm of Sobey Road in Saratoga, we count ourselves lucky to have grown up in such an idyllic setting. The towering redwoods of Walden West were our playground, and the crashing waves off West Cliff in Santa Cruz our companions. These experiences have etched within us an unshakeable sense of belonging to this place we call home.
As we reflect on our childhood, we realize that it has become an integral part of our profession. We do not merely sell a way of life; we share with you anecdotes of growing up and living here. Whether you are new to the area or relocating from another state, we have tales to share that will captivate your heart. Our pride lies not just in our own stories, but in the privilege of sharing our clients' stories as well. We recognize that every home in our community holds a unique narrative- a tale that weaves the threads of the past into the present, and sets the stage for the future.
As the wise Laura Holloway once said, "Storytelling is our obligation to the next generation. If all we do is market, we fail not only our profession but also our children and their children. Give something meaningful to your audience- inspire, engage, educate with a story. Stop marketing. Start storytelling." It is this ethos that drives us- to inspire, engage, and educate with every story we tell.
Let us help tell your story...

I hesitate to write this review only for selfish reasons - I like to keep outstanding resources, like Josh, a secret. You should pick Josh if you are looking for a strategic real estate partner who is highly intelligent, considerate, thoughtful, and organized. He helped me negotiate a protracted, complex real estate deal (single family home contingent on a sale of another home) but kept an even temperament throughout. Oftentimes, buyers and sellers alike question whether paying agent commission is worth it. Many agents phone it in. Not Josh. He fights hard to protect your interests (as any fiduciary should, but won't necessarily do) and is often sev...— Will D.
EJ and Josh are a great team. They are both organized, professional, and responsive. They executed perfectly on the sale of my property.— Tony M.
I can’t begin to tell you what a pleasure it has been to work with you on the selling of her home. What would have been such a difficult task for us was made so much easier due to your expertise, professionalism, and most of all your gentle consideration of the emotions involved in this huge endeavor.— Judy M.
We had an opportunity to work with Josh to sell our home in Los Gatos and in parallel, buy a lot in Pleasanton to build our dream home on. For both transactions, Josh was a member of our real estate team and front ended the engagement with us. Working with Josh was a real joy. He was proactive at every stage of the deal, two steps ahead of the counter parties in all due diligence, pricing, and negotiations, and very professional and courteous in all interactions. We would have no hesitation in recommending him for your next real estate deal.— Iftikhar A.
It was such a pleasure working with EJ Pulpan and his team. We were in the market of purchasing a second home and he made the process seem effortless. EJ was very professional, he was committed to seeing each step of the process through, and he communicated all necessary information with us. He was readily available to answer any of our questions and his team provided continual updates throughout the process. We were able to find and close on our home within 21 days. EJ is so committed to his clients, he took a trip down to the Central Coast to help us find our second home. This was our second business venture with EJ. The first deal was much mo...— CJ and Kim C.
EJ and Juliane were instrumental in helping us find our perfect mountain home in the Santa Cruz area. Their extensive local knowledge and non-pushy approach made the process smooth and stress-free. They attentively listened to our needs and provided valuable contractor connections for required work. We highly recommend this professional and friendly real estate duo to anyone seeking a seamless home-buying experience in Santa Cruz.— Bo & Sherry
The PB Group were fantastic in helping us sell our property in San Jose. We were so happy to have selected them as our agents. They used every marketing tool available to help sell our home: online media campaign, individual website for the property, drone footage and video, 3D walkthrough video, numerous open houses and personalized service to guide us through the process. It's a tough choice selecting a real estate agent to help one sell such a valuable asset as your home. The Pulpan Brothers team validated our decision to go with them and we could not be more pleased with their performance! If you want a professional, motivated group to sell your...— Paul R.
Josh and EJ were great to work with while selling our home! They were so organized and professional throughout the entire process. I would recommend the Pulpan brothers to anyone I know who is looking to buy or sell!— Taylor M.
I have bought and sold several homes in my life. Most transactions had left me disappointed with my choice of realtor. EJ and his team exceeded my expectations! I highly recommend EJ for numerous reasons: autonomy, negotiation, communication, and market knowledge. I am the trustee for the estate and I don't live in the Los Gatos area. EJ handled everything and more without me available at the home. He stepped in and was able to negotiate the tenants to leave before their lease was up, thereby enabling the house on the market sooner. The home was staged and priced correctly in this difficult market. The perfect local buyers were found and the...— Nancy M.
I highly recommend the Pulpan Brothers Group. I was extremely pleased with the outstanding services they provided. They not only successfully sold my home in Saratoga exceeding my expectations but they also went above and beyond to find my new home. With very little homes on the market this year, they turned to locating off market homes. In the end they found the perfect off market home for me and their negotiation process was smooth and successful. I can't thank Josh, EJ, and Juliane enough for helping me through this process.— Lynda K.
There are not enough words to describe how incredibly amazing Josh and EJ are, they made an extremely stressful home buying experience possible for my husband and me. We gave them some very specific requests in what we needed in a home and they hit every mark with the perfect home. Their expertise goes far beyond home buying, they connected us with contractors, painters, cleaners, roofers….everything we needed to get our new home ready. They answered every phone call and text message (and there were many!) with our endless questions and when they didn’t have an answer they found it. This was our first home purchase and they made sure we understood t...— Jodi A.
When it came to purchasing my first home, I had 100 questions. EJ and Josh were happy to walk me through the entire process. They answered every question with a level of detail that gave me the confidence knowing these guys are the real deal. We were able to avoid a bidding war and I got the home of my dreams for exactly what I was willing to spend. I would recommend Ej and Josh to anyone looking for a high-class real estate experience.— Marc S.
I recently entrusted Josh Pulpan to sell my long kept and much loved home. My experience with him was beyond superior. He was through in taking care of business, always accessible when needed, prompt to respond to calls, and caring and calming when things got "exciting". After all this he secured a price for my property well beyond my expectations. I would, in a heartbeat, call upon him again for my real estate needs.— Carol R.
I wouldn't be able to complete the probate sale of my brother's house without Josh's and EJ's help! They are the best in what they do, and they go beyond the call of duty to ensure the most optimal outcome for the client. I encountered several challenges and unknown issues every step of the way during the probate. Josh and EJ didn't accept no for an answer. Instead, they actively solicited advice from other trusted professionals, figured out multiple options to pursue, and helped me resolve these issues throughout the entire sale process. As a result, we had a successful outcome. Hiring Josh and EJ was the best decision I've made.— Judy K.
I want to express my gratitude to the Pulpan Brothers Group for their support throughout the sale of my Aptos Hills property. Even before we began marketing the home, EJ played a pivotal role in the improvement process. Their knowledge of Santa Cruz County's countless point-of-sale ordinances made the listing preparation manageable despite all of the inspections and reports required. As a result EJ was successful in negotiating an all cash offer at a time when mortgage rates were rising quickly. The team's assistance in coordinating vendors and managing the logistics of moving personal items across the country was imperative. Furthermore, their conn...— Susan D.
A client-first mindset and an emphasis on authenticity, not only tends to those looking for something different out of the real estate industry, but has a way of producing extraordinary results for everyone involved.
