Meet Augie & Calla Bertao
Augie and Calla have lived in San Benito County since 1989 and cherish the true sense of the local community. Living in Gilroy previously, they feel they have a special connection with the South Santa Clara County community as well.
Married since 1981, they began their real estate partnership in 1994. Their search for a real estate office that mirrored the Bertao’s philosophies of hard work and integrity has lead them to a journey of opening their own real estate company, Bertao Real Estate Group. In August of 2007 they opened their office and soon after were joined by many high energy, seasoned real estate professionals.
Augie brings both a financial and management background to the Bertao team. He is fluent in Portuguese and Spanish, providing excellent service to multi-lingual clients.
