"We could not have envisioned such a long-term partnership with anyone other than Blue Sky Utility and Sunpreme, given their extensive expertise in applying renewable solutions to retail real estate settings," noted Joanne.

"We are privileged to have collaborated with Blue Sky Utility once again and with Passco Co. in making Sunpreme bifacial double glass panels available to their prestigious business project at Hanford.  Sunpreme bifacial high performance solar panels are an industry game changer offering our customers a world-class product, with superior lifetime yields, and the safest long-term energy investments -- backed by an outstanding industry-leading warranty," said Surinder S. Bedi, Executive Vice President for Global Business Development, System Products and Quality & Reliability at Sunpreme. "These bifacial panels absorb light from both sides increasing energy yield (kWh) per kWp further combined with industry leading temperature coefficient, fire class rating A and with expected useful life exceeding 30 years.

NAPA, Calif., Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In only four short years, Nicole Solari has gone from a top producing agent in Solano County, owning more than 20% of market share to growing a team of 20 agents, opening her own Brokerage with two locations. Everyone keeps asking - what's next? The answer was simple for Nicole, she found a hole in the market where consumers were not being catered to as they should and Nicole decided to do what she does best, fix it by leading by example.  The Solari Group, Inc. is excited to announce their new division, Solari Group Luxury.  The division will be led by top-producing agent Natasha Antonioni.

Just three years into her real estate career, Nicole began her self-created intern training program. The idea was to train for real world experience while the Realtors-in-training studied for their state exam. Little did she know she was going to luck out and from her first intern class find her future business partner, Natasha. 

In Natasha's first year, she sold twenty homes and focused on the luxury sector, selling mostly in the Napa luxury market. With her entrepreneurial background, industrial designer husband and a slew of home remodels in her pocket, Natasha found the luxury market to be a perfect fit.

The power house duo developed a training program to teach agents Luxury sales with concise marketing plans, use of the latest technology and online marketing, International MLS platforms and how to develop deep relationships with local, national and International buyers. The Solari Luxury badge is something to be earned with strict requirements.

With Nicole's investor portfolio and Natasha's relationship building skillset, the two top producers are already building their brand and have already received awards in their new niche. 

"Luxury is my comfort zone," Antonioni states. "Having traveled the world for design shows has given me a sweet spot for the high-end market and the clients that appreciate the best in architecture and design detail."

A member of Napa's pioneer wine-making Nicole Solari's deep Napa roots combined with the Antonioni name, also a famed wine-making name make them an entrepreneurial powerhouse and force to be reckoned with.  Nicole and Natasha expect continued overall growth providing customer-focused service, cutting edge technology and marketing and a truly white-glove service for all clients.
