"Helena and her team were amazing to work with - they were on top of managing a move-out and preparing the property (including renovations, minor repairs, cleaning, staging and listing) as well as strategizing the pricing and timing of a sale. Truly white-glove service - Helena and her team coordinated every aspect of the process and were communicative throughout. I am very happy with the ultimate result. I highly recommend working with them if you are looking to sell a property in San Francisco!" - Thanos B.
"I will refer Helena to anyone who inquires about a realtor. I truly appreciated and valued her expertise and knowledge regarding the SF real estate market. She was spot on with her gut reactions and advice. Helena and her team are incredibly hard-working, optimistic, realistic, and sincere - they have earned my trust and if I need to sell or buy again she is the first person I will call!!" - Grace P.
"As first-time home buyers, there were many times Helena adeptly helped my partner and me navigate complex unknowns. From picking a lender to narrowing our options she was always present, rapid, and efficacious in helping us find solutions. In the hot and fast-paced SF market, it was nice to have someone to call day or night seven days a week that got RESULTS. When we found our home, she went into overdrive getting us a competitive price and then closing despite very real, nearly deal-ending challenges. Helena and her team were truly a joy to work with and we hope to do so again." - Chaz P.
"We have bought and sold several properties in the last 10 years and Helena has been the best real estate agent we have worked with. She was quick to adapt to news of a city-wide stay-at-home order and worked tirelessly to market and sell our condo in the middle of a global pandemic. Helena and her team took care of arranging all the vendors and coordinating the work on our home to make it as marketable as possible. She is extremely organized, knowledgeable, and always on. We highly recommend Helena." - Ruth
"Absolutely exceeded expectations. This is coming from someone who has been in the Real Estate business for over 20 years." - Marvin F.
"It was an absolute pleasure working with Helena and her team. Helena was super knowledgeable, proactive, responsive, and accommodating. She helped us navigate an incredibly competitive market to find (and win!) the house of our dreams. She confidently led us through every stage of the process and truly went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and happy along the way, and with the outcome. San Francisco is a tricky market, and I'm just so grateful to have had Helena's wisdom on our side. I trust her wholeheartedly and she'll be the first person I call next time around!" - Cori D
"Helena and her team were phenomenal! I never had to worry about anything throughout the entire process. It was seamless from day 1. They were on top of everything making the move effortless. Their guidance was on point and professional. Helena is an amazing negotiator and I was able to secure an excellent outcome during Covid! Couldn’t be happier. Highly recommend!!" - Wendy K
"Helena and her team were great to work with. They successfully listed, primped, showed and sold our home while we were thousands of miles away. Helena is extremely patient and professional, and most importantly sold our house within a week and for far more than we expected. We happily recommend Helena to all our friends and family and would jump at the chance to work with her and her team again." - Karen L
"Helena and her team represented me in the sale of a house and adjacent lot in Hayes Valley during the pandemic. Helena is professional, diligent and always stays in close communication. She takes a very active approach to marketing and is never shy about expressing her opinion. The sale turned out to be somewhat unconventional and that is when Helena truly shined. She was adept at feeling out the buyer's agent for what was important to them and kept the deal on track in a tight timeframe. Kudos as well to her team, who didn't miss a beat when she was traveling. I will absolutely work with Helena again." -Art W
"Working with Helena on our San Francisco home search was a 10 out of 10. She found opportunities we didn’t know existed, appropriately challenged us to think outside the box, and ultimately made our dream house happen. Helena worked tirelessly with us and was there every step of the way, usually one step ahead of everyone else. In addition to being a key player in the overall execution, she became a trusted and invaluable thought partner to our entire process, adding value at every turn. Her ability to develop and draw upon a deep network of relationships was just as valuable as her technical real estate knowledge. Throughout our work together, Helena was extremely professional, responsive, well organized and of high integrity. If we could do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a thing." -Chad & Emily
★★★★★"Helena and Team were great from start to sale. A relationship that started almost ten years ago when buying my first home eventually led to Helena supporting us again as we looked to move into our next phase in life. Everything from the communication needed from the seller's perspective and coordinating each phase from staging, marketing materials to the actual showings was super creative. Helena and the team were trustworthy and transparent throughout the process and we're happy to have had a smooth close. Thanks again!" - Taz & Kelle P
It’s not enough to be good at what I do.
I have to excel. It’s in my DNA.
I earned double-masters degrees in business and music before becoming a real estate agent in 1993.
As a concert violist growing up in Prague, I developed an exceptional level of discipline that has carried through to my work. I’m exacting, persistent and passionate about being the best agent I can be for my clients.
I have an ear for opportunity and I love what I do. So when I’m not strategizing about how to get you the best price for your home or finding you the property of your dreams, I’m drilling through the latest market data and probing my ever-expanding network of contacts.
I’ve been privileged to live in San Francisco for over 20 years and I navigate the city like a native-born cabbie. I know what’s happening in each local market – what properties are selling for, who’s buying them, and why they are commanding the prices they command. My long-term relationships within the industry are strong and my sources are many. Thanks to my knowledge, experience and contacts, I consistently get top dollar for my sellers, and top consideration for my buyers.
In the last three years I have closed over $350 Million in sales and I am consistently ranked as one of the top 10 highest performing San Francisco realtors. I’m proud of that, but even prouder that I saved each of my clients time, money and stress. Most of the properties I listed sold for over asking. Every buyer I represented received my full attention and saw only the properties that fit their criteria. 71% of my buyers’ offers were accepted the first time I made a bid on their behalf.
I strive for excellence in everything I do and when you hire me as your agent, I handle your business as if it were mine. You also get the full support of my professional team, including Compass' leading market analyst and my dedicated marketing and transaction specialists. Whether you are selling or buying, we will guide you to the right valuation, create an elegant, winning strategy, spend the necessary time and money to prepare and negotiate the best possible outcome.
My team is one of the most efficient and effective in all of San Francisco. When I agree to represent you, your success is imminent. I am on the job, on call, all the time.
