Careers

Are you right for the Terra Firma family?

TFGP seeks to recruit a select group of high quality, collaboratively-minded Realtors who desire to work in a supportive team environment and provide superior service to their clients. Our real estate professionals therefore must have the knowledge and experience necessary to meet and exceed the client’s expectation of service and results. This attention to quality is why Terra Firma has quickly become one of the top residential real estate brokerages in the North Bay.  Our associates place a premium on honesty, industry knowledge, collaboration, work efficiency, and extraordinary client service.  We do not wish to be the biggest company in the business—just the best.

WHAT OUR ASSOCIATES SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH US

I chose to join Terra Firma Global Partners for the integrity of their leadership, the stellar reputation of their sales team and their commitment to giving back to the local community. Terra Firma Global Partners focuses on the agent/client relationship and fosters that connection for a lifetime. I am honored to be a part of the Terra Firma team and to be of service to my home community

Michele Ikemire, Napa Valley Office

Terra Firma Global Partners is an outstanding Real Estate Brokerage, and I feel lucky to be a part of it. There is such integrity and focus on the client, which fits my philosophy, as I pride myself in listening to my client’s needs and then guiding them through the sale or purchase of property.

Susan Irvine, Sonoma County Office

Joining Terra Firma Global has been the best move I’ve made in real estate. The transition has been seamless and the support has been overwhelming. Since real estate is ever-changing, it is essential to be affiliated with a company that strives to introduce new concepts and technology into the workplace. TFGP takes care of the “nuts and bolts”, allowing their agents to focus on what they do best…sell real estate!

Gloria Epperson, Sonoma County Office

I joined Terra Firma Global Partners because I have a high regard for the leadership team of Bill Facendini and Heidi Rickerd-Rizzo. They are highly respected in the market place. I think Terra Firma is a cutting edge company and I have a desire to learn new things and grow in ways many traditional brokerages are not able to provide. In addition, this is a group of people who share ideas, communicate and collaborate–they look to help each other. The culture is one of “family” and you feel that when you walk in the door

Denise Chapartéguy, Sonoma County Office

I’m excited to be joining a company that understands the value of relationships, not only those we have with our clients but those we have with fellow agents in the community. It becomes obvious when you meet other agents at Terra Firma Global Partners that there is a strong sense of family and everyone works toward the goal of success for both, the company and its agents. I look forward to being a part of this family and contributing to the team.

David Kerr, Sonoma County Office

The funny thing is that I was not looking to make a change in real estate companies. Terra Firma as a business competitor had been on my radar for a while because of the quality of the agents I had met, their approach to putting listings on the market, and their strong branding and marketing. Discovering that Terra Firma was planning to start a Sonoma office piqued my interest. But then when I met Heidi and Bill and the team, everything just completely clicked. I found this genuine collaboration between the agents, this great energy around wanting everyone to be and do their best. And I found a real commitment within the business for fostering and building long-term relationships with our clients. And I found a business model that respected my contribution as a part of this dynamic company. I had to say yes!

Rob Angus Jones, Sonoma County Office

Terra Firma Global Partners is a very unique real estate company, like no other that I know of. The team that Heidi and Bill have assembled are warm, compassionate, knowledgeable, caring, experienced individuals that are supportive and cooperative and work as a team. We kind of joke about our “Terra Firma Family” but I really feel that we are. This group is so supportive of one another, it is truly an anomaly from the norm. So refreshing in this Real Estate world. Bill and Heidi are absolutely wonderful individuals with a wealth of knowledge and experience and a way of dealing with people that makes them comfortable and confident in the guidance they provide. They are compassionate and trustworthy and great people to talk to for help and guidance. Their support is always geared toward helping to solve others’ needs in a professional manner. This is the essence of their guiding principle of providing the best care for our clients and the nurturing of relationships that they hold above all. I feel that I couldn’t be in a better place or with better people.

Tara Conrow, Sonoma County Office

A shared theme for excellence, the collective caliber within the company serves our industry with acumen, integrity, experience and kindness. And how fortunate we are to have owners that lead with business precision, maintain a keen marketing focus for current trending and advocate with care, strength and unparalleled generosity. Everyone wins at Terra Firma Global Partners….the client, the agent, the company. It’s Value first and a whole lot of reward second!

I joined Terra Firma because I value relationships and honesty. When I go to work, I like to have those values supported not challenged. That is what Bill & Heidi bring to the table, along with leadership, experience and innovation. They are leaders in front of the industry not playing “catch up”. Their company philosophy of ” The focus begins and ends with the Client” mirrors and supports my value system of giving my clients 100% of my passion to help them achieve their real estate goals. It is also an amazing thing to feel like you are in a family when you are away from home working with such a collaborative group of professionals.
