Rockcliff REALTORS®, a leading residential real estate company in the San Francisco East Bay, has announced that Jeff Sposito, the company’s founder and president, has been named as an honorary Director for Life by the California Association of Realtors (C.A.R.).

“I’m humbled beyond measure,” says Sposito. “I have spent many years working with C.A.R. to ensure that home buyers and sellers, as well as Realtors, are represented appropriately and fairly in a systemic way. It has always been because I am passionate about this business that I immerse myself in the process of making it even better. To be honored by my peers for doing what I love to do is really quite astounding.”
