John Genovese

Share/Save
For more than 20 years, John Genovese and Richard Lester have had a driving passion for Real Estate.

Their seasoned backgrounds date back to the 1980’s: Richard as a top producing Agent in Toronto and John managing large scale, multi-family residential development in Silicon Valley and San Francisco in the 1990’s. They were introduced at the Russian River in the 1997 and together they sparked a collaborative connection that involves Real Estate in San Francisco and Sonoma County and spans nearly every classification including apartment buildings, commercial properties, small business, single family residences and condominium ownership.

In 2004, they opened the Russian River / Wine Country sales office in Guerneville and established an innovative and fresh approach to marketing Vacation Homes to San Francisco Buyers and Sellers. As Your City+Country Connection® Richard & John immediately captured the dominant market presence in both sales volume and esteemed reputation for care, honesty, integrity and loyalty.

Today, Richard and John enjoy their affiliation with Vanguard Properties where they are able to seamlessly combine their experience and love of San Francisco + Sonoma Wine Country to achieve top results for their Bay Area clients. Their prevailing skills are a balance of John’s insight into the emotional nuances of marketing and sales with Richard’s keen financial awareness and savvy negotiation.

They continue to enjoy investment properties and personal residences in San Francisco, Sonoma Wine County and the Sonoma Coast.

They are active members of the National Association of REALTORS; California Association of REALTORS; San Francisco Association of REALTORS and the North Bay Association of REALTORS.
