Edrington & Associates is pleased to announce that we have been included in the San Francisco Business Times 31st annual Fastest Growing Private Companies in the Bay Area List, an exclusive ranking of one of the region’s most important segments in the local economy. The winners and rankings were unveiled at an awards ceremony on October 20.

The List includes privately held companies headquartered in the Bay Area, defined as Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, San Francisco and San Mateo counties. Companies considered for the List must meet the following criteria: 1) Headquartered in the Bay Area; 2) Net revenue of greater than $200,000 in fiscal year 2019; 3) Independent, privately held corporation, proprietorship, or partnership (not a subsidiary or division) through fiscal year 2021.

Based in Oakland, revenue at Edrington & Associates grew by over 132% from the beginning of 2019 through 2020. Led by Steve Edrington, President, CCIM, CPM, our company focuses on buying and selling residential properties as a multi-family broker; adding or legalizing units, including accessory dwelling units; landlord consulting; and providing expert witnesses for landlords and attorneys. The relationships we forge with our clients drive everything we do; and in addition, we capitalize on a unique blend of project experience, personal knowledge and industry expertise.

“Our success comes from a team working together not just to overcome challenges, but embracing those challenges and turning them into opportunities for growth,” said Edrington. “We leveraged technology in ways we never anticipated and were both focused and nimble in meeting client needs and surpassing expectations…even our own! Coming through the pandemic has left us stronger and even more confident that we can continue to grow and thrive.”

Edrington & Associates provides unparalleled, unbiased consulting services to Bay Area property owners and attorneys. Our decades of experience allow us to navigate complex issues and ultimately maximize value and solve challenges for property owners, buyers/sellers, developers, and landlord-tenant attorneys. Along with our rapid growth comes the need to hire great talent to sustain it. We continue to grow and are hiring in the areas of sales, marketing and expert witnesses. Open roles:
