  • About Ron

    Ron individually is in the top 30 agents in San Francisco in terms of sales volume and has consistently been in the top 1% of agents in San Francisco for several years. He has completed in excess of $400MM in transactions, representing 300 completed deals for both buyers and sellers. He brings exceptional sales, marketing, and negotiation skills to each transaction and always puts his clients first. Ron comes from a real estate family, his mother working as a developer and his father working as a mortgage broker. Whether it be banging nails on construction sites during the summers in high school or helping his mother manage her investment properties, Ron has been involved in real estate almost his entire life. Ron is constantly upgrading or remodeling residences, either on behalf of clients pre- and post- sale as part of his brokerage activities or on his own behalf, forming partnerships to acquire, reposition and sell properties in San Francisco.

    Throughout much of the 1990`s, Ron held hi-tech positions in Silicon Valley and understands the value technology brings in facilitating the marketing and sales process in real estate. He served as a Product Manager at an internet mortgage broker website (later acquire by CitiGroup) and knows how to implement the tools of technology to achieve sales and marketing objectives. In his product marketing roles, Ron learned the value of marketing in successfully selling any product or service. It was at his Director of Sales position that he learned how to sell, a skill that has served him well in San Francisco real estate since 2003.

    Ron is a true Bay Area native, born in Mountain View, CA and raised in Menlo Park, CA. He holds a Bachelor`s of Arts in Economics with a minor in Business Administration at University of California Berkeley in Berkeley, CA, as well as a Masters Degree in Business Administration from Stanford University Graduate School of Business, Stanford, CA.

    Testimonials

    Patient diligent very effective!  Ron worked with our family for 2+ years (it might be 3?) while we tiptoed in and out of the decision to buy.  We finally pushed the accelerator and he helped us through the process during the crazy holiday period (making himself available throughout).  He knows everyone in the SF market (and has great relationships) which was super helpful.  He was able to negotiate to allow us to set up a Christmas tree the day before we closed so we could move in and immediately celebrate the holidays/Santa with the kids. He literally saved Christmas!  Thanks Ron!  Appreciate all your help. -Ann F.

    Ron is great to work with and helped us find an amazing house in SF! We are first time homeowners and he was very helpful along the way. I definitely recommend Ron. -Emily W.
