Windermere Homes & Estates Acquires Carrington Real Estate Services’ San Diego Operations

Windermere continues to shine with their growth and momentum on their recent acquisition of Carrington Real Estate Services’ (CRES) San Diego County operations.


Windermere and Carrington have had a strong existing relationship for several years through Windermere’s participation in the Carrington Property Network. Through that relationship, Windermere learned firsthand CRES’s capabilities and strong presence in the San Diego market and determined CRES’s operations and agents would be an important asset in their ambitious growth strategy. Windermere’s offer to purchase the San Diego CRES assets presents opportunities for both Windermere and Carrington going forward.


“We are very excited about this recent acquisition of Carrington’s San Diego locations. We are proud to be able to grow such a great brand, throughout San Diego County and in the desert. Windermere has always focused on three basic principles: hire the best people; give them the best tools; create thriving communities. I think this is what separates us from the rest and it shows through our significant growth over the past 4 years,” says co-owner Rich Johnson.


Windermere Homes and Estates acquired ​CRES’s offices in Del Mar, Carlsbad Village, and Downtown San Diego; the agents from the former Carrington Escondido office moved into the beautiful new Windermere office just a few miles away.


Windermere Homes & Estates is a brokerage that continues to grow rapidly. In the past 5 years, they have had over 570 agents join their company, they have opened over 19 offices, and have exceeded sales volume of over a billion dollars each year since 2015.  In 2017 WHE was honored with the first ever Brokerage Achievement Award of Excellence from SDAR (San Diego Association of Realtors®). This prestigious award was given by SDAR to Windermere Homes & Estates for its standard of ethics, commitment to compliance and high regards for running their business.
