Our Story

Since 1986 Patrick and Monica have specialized in San Jose’s Willow Glen area as Real Estate Agents, achieving top honors with Century 21 Seville Contempo from 1996 through 2000 when Century 21 Seville Contempo was folded into Coldwell Banker (2001), where Patrick and Monica continued to excel. They remained top agents at Coldwell Banker from 2002 until leaving for Sereno Group in 2012, where the Farnsworth Team continues to be one of the best real estate teams in San Jose, now joined by their daughter and son-in-law. Charisse left a career as a corporate chef and accomplished food blogger for Real Estate in 2012. Eric joined the team part time in 2009 but continued working in the e-commerce industry until leaving for Real Estate full time in 2013, bringing an Almaden Specialty to the team. Together the Farnsworth Team brings almost 60 years of combined Real Estate experience to the table to help you find or sell your home.

About Our Agency

The Farnsworth Team is a family of San Jose Realtors® specializing in Willow Glen and surrounding San Jose neighborhoods. All San Jose natives, the Team consists of Patrick and Monica, their daughter Charisse and her husband Eric. Patrick’s grandfather moved to San Jose in the late 1800’s, mining quicksilver in the New Almaden Quicksilver mines and his father settled down in San Jose near what is now Valley Fair in a nice house now being remodeled by Eric and Charisse! Patrick majored in microbiology at San Jose State and worked in the field for years before joining Monica in Real Estate. Monica grew up near downtown Willow Glen, just a few houses down the same street they live now. Charisse also grew up in Willow Glen, like her parents attended San Jose State. Charisse and Monica both majored in Fine Art and are accomplished painters and interior decorators. Eric grew up in Almaden, attended Leland High school and then majored in American History at the University of Hawai’i. He and Patrick have both taken up golf while Eric also plays in a Men’s hockey league at Sharks Ice.
