MENLO PARK, Calif., Jan. 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Dreyfus Sotheby's International Realty is pleased to announce the addition of Rich Bassin to our firm. With nearly $1 billion of real estate sales volume over his career, Rich Bassin has a long history of handling high-end Atherton, Menlo Park, and Palo Alto listings. Rich has rarely changed firms in his 35 year career in residential real estate, but was motivated by compelling synergies in serving premium peninsula markets. The firm's dedicated and professional in-house marketing team, along with Sotheby's International Realty's global footprint with exposure to exceptional overseas buyers, is a proven powerful package for clients.

"We're pleased that Rich Bassin will be joining us in our Menlo Park office. Rich's long-term career and deep experience is well-known, particularly in the Atherton marketplace, and an important and welcome addition to our team. Personally, I look forward to having Rich's counsel as we grow our firm and deal with the ever-changing landscape of our Peninsula market," said Michael Dreyfus, CEO of Dreyfus Sotheby's International Realty.

Rich and his team have joined our Menlo Park office at our new location at 640 Oak Grove and may be reached at:
