Before becoming a real estate broker, Tony Vaccaro a native of the SF bay area, has a marketing and communications background having worked at Charles Schwab in San Francisco where he ran marketing initiatives targeted at high-net-worth individuals. “I always had a passion for real estate though,” he says. “So in 2001, I quit my job and moved to Los Angeles where I eventually landed a position at the California Association of Realtors where I worked for almost 10 years.”
He bought a house in Palm Springs in 2009, started living here full-time in 2012, and is currently immediate past president (2019) of the Palm Springs Regional Association of Realtors and a member of the California Desert Association of Realtors. “I fell in love with Palm Springs’ unique background and its interesting history — both with the 1950s architecture and its history as Hollywood’s playground,” he says.
“I’ve always been drawn to all things real estate,” he adds. “Beautiful homes, architecture, home improvement, homeownership — you name it. So being a real estate broker really was a perfect fit for me. It bridged my skills in marketing and communications, and my dedication to delivering an extraordinary client experience with my longstanding passion for homes.”
