  • About Jeff

    JEFF HANDwerger loves real estate, fine architecture and negotiating the best possible deal for his clients.  His experience runs from real estate development, construction management and real estate appraisal.  He is extensively networked with developers, seller and other agents.  Approximately 30% of Jeff's transactions are off-market and never find their way on to the public internet.

    BORN THIS WAY . . . 

    Perspicacious is an excellent word to describe Jeff HANDwerger. His vision of potential in both property and in people coupled with his certification in expert negotiation has paved the way for Jeff to knowledgeably empower you, his client.



    EXPERIENCE THE EXPERIENCE . . . 

    Both as a Broker and Developer, Jeff has overseen hundreds of real estate transactions, consulted and appraised hundreds of millions of dollars in real property and overseen development and construction projects ranging from $20,000 renovations to $40,000,000 condominium developments. 



    GETTING CONNECTED . . .

    Due in part to Jeff's integrity, he has built solid relationships and connections with industry leaders in development, architecture, construction, interior design, investment and finance. Jeff knows what prep work should be done to garner the highest price for your property. His team will oversee these preparations to streamline the process for you. As a buyer, he will advise you as to the benefits and detriments of a particular property. He can also help you create a vision as to what a property could become.



    BALANCED APPROACH . . .

    As a practiced yogi, Jeff understands the importance of balance and flexibility during what could be a potentially stressful time in your life. For his clients, whether buyers or sellers, he will help you interpret market trends, advocate for your personal needs, communicate to off-market private networks on your behalf and explore creative financing. Real estate is not only a profession for Jeff, it's a personal passion.



    A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS . . . 

    Jeff believes in social responsibility and in the value of home-ownership. He has acted as the exclusive real estate agent for Habitat for Humanity San Francisco on a pro-bono basis since 1995. He believes in giving back and makes a financial contribution to a registered charity for each closed transaction. He has contributed to Water.org, Habitat for Humanity, the San Francisco Aids Project, the Jewish Community Federation and Rebuilding Together.
