Terra Firma Global Partners – Real Estate Brokers

Community Involvement
  • Terra Firma Global Partners co-founders, announced today that the firm has entered into a three-year, highly innovative agreement of financial support with Prestwood Elementary School in the City of Sonoma. Terra Firma is sponsoring “Prestwood Direct”, which is the funding mechanism that generates funds to enable a host of school programs that Prestwood Elementary would otherwise be unable to afford.
  • In order to give back to the communities we live in, every Terra Firma Associate donates a portion of their commission to a fund at the close of escrow and at the end of each quarter the team decides which local organization or individual will be the benefactor. In addition, we participate in various projects and specific community campaigns. We support a variety of organizations such as animal shelters, youth programs and food banks to local families in need.
