About Cia

Cia has worked in real estate for over 40 years. Her extensive experience and market knowledge guarantee our clients the best representation possible, even in a difficult market. Cia brings a calming strength to what is often an emotional experience. Whether you’re buying or selling a home, she will lead you step-by-step through the complex, document-intensive process. Cia is committed to providing the best service in the industry, and her track record is her testament—90% of her clients are referred or have worked with her before.

In 1986, Cia co-founded Town & Company, a preeminent service specializing in San Francisco’s northern waterfront. Cia has concentrated nearly all her efforts on San Francisco real estate, and has collected a massive amount of data chronicling the condition, past ownership, history, and pricing of properties.

A native of New York, Cia relocated to San Francisco after a successful first career as an international model. She is the mother of two boys, and devotes much of her free time to several community organizations focused on education and the arts. She is a board member of 42nd Street Moon, a theater organization, and a member of the ARCS Foundation, which funds college scientists. She also volunteers for the Gladstone Institute.
