FirstService Residential Expands Its Operations in California
Adds Bruner & Rosi Management, Inc. in Acquisition Partnership
Irvine, Calif. (February 8, 2016)
– FirstService Residential, North America’s leading property management firm, announced today that it has expanded its market-leading residential property management business in California with the acquisition of Bruner & Rosi Management, Inc., a full-service residential association company based in Carlsbad, Calif. The partnership adds more than 40 residential homeowner associations to the company’s management portfolio and expands its regional footprint in San Diego County. The partnership became effective February 1, 2016.
“This partnership represents an alignment of culture, goals and values between our two companies and is an exceptional fit with our existing operations,” said Bob Cardoza, President of FirstService Residential, CA and West Region. “The expansion allows for broad regional growth in San Diego while providing Bruner & Rosi with access to proprietary and innovative systems that will allow them to enhance their services to their clients.”
Founded in 1999, Bruner & Rosi was established by Bonny Bruner and Marge Rosi, both industry professionals for over 30 years. Marge Rosi will serve as Regional Director of the Carlsbad operations and co-founder Bonny Bruner has planned to transition into retirement.
“We’re excited about this partnership and look forward to joining FirstService Residential,” said Marge Rosi, co-founder of Bruner & Rosi. “The people aspect of this decision was so important to both Bonny and myself and, after careful consideration, we felt that FirstService Residential was a company whose culture and behavior mirrored ours. We share the same commitment and appreciation for the most important assets of any good business – the people within it.”
The North San Diego new regional office is located in the Carlsbad Gateway Center near the northeast corner of El Camino Real & Faraday, 1/2 mile north of Palomar Airport Road.
