Bethany’s first job was on Wall Street but she quickly realized she wanted a more entrepreneurial career so she left NYC and went to business school. After business school, she headed West and moved to San Francisco. After 2 years of working in tech start-ups, she took the leap and got her real estate license. She sold her first house in two weeks and took that as sign that real estate should become her lifelong career. Through the years she has come to appreciate that the most important thing she can do as an agent is listen to her clients and collaborate with them so they get where they want to go and feel positive about their experience. As a result, she has built a very loyal group of clients.

Bethany has been selling real estate for the past 16 years, starting shortly after she moved to San Francisco. She specializes in selling homes and investment properties in San Francisco and Southern Marin. She says, “In my heart, I believe where a person lives has a huge impact on their happiness.” And she finds tremendous satisfaction in helping people find their homes. Her clients tell her they appreciate her calm nature, knowledge of the San Francisco market and business-like manner. Her goal is to always negotiate the best possible deal for her clients and leave them happy and excited about their new home.

One of her favorite things about San Francisco is it’s diversity – and not just the people. She love the distinct neighborhoods and the fact that you can live in almost any type of house that you want – a Victorian house, a modern house, an old fashioned co-op, a loft, or a modern high-rise. She has studied, walked and driven all the neighborhoods in San Francisco and would love to share her knowledge with you!!
