Anthony Navarro
Harper Real Estate
About Anthony

Anthony Navarro’s intuitive yet data-driven approach has earned him many accolades, such as the Best of HomeLight Award 2018, which placed him in the top 5% of agents nationwide. In 2020, he was named a HomeLight Elite Agent, which is only awarded to the top 1% of agents in the nation. This designation allows his sellers to trade in their houses when moving up or downsizing and gives his buyers more negotiating power with the ability to make all-cash-offers. Always an early adopter who stays on the leading edge, Anthony has also partnered with Harcourt’s Auctions, an elite auction house for non-distressed homes that boasts a 31% higher success rate and 6-8% higher prices than the MLS. Anthony’s broad range of experience, vast professional network, and in-depth knowledge of the economic principles that drive real estate sales have placed him in the top 1% of San Francisco agents since 2005. Not surprising, as the San Francisco native has been honing his seemingly innate talent since he was a child. Anthony first learned about real estate from his parents, who were successful investors, and has long maintained a thriving national personal real estate portfolio. Though he specializes in luxury properties and investments, Anthony has guided hundreds of Bay Area buyers, sellers, and investors to success in all markets. Outside of real estate, Anthony devotes time to his two daughters. He named Harper after his eldest because of her exuberance and passion for life — two qualities they share. When not with his family or clients, Anthony volunteers with San Francisco Seals Soccer, an organization that provides opportunities to young players from all economic backgrounds. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from UC Berkeley.

Jennifer Rosdail
Jennifer Rosdail Real Estate Sales, a KWSF Partner
About Jennifer

I am great at my job because I can’t get enough of San Francisco - the people, the neighborhoods and, of course, the intricacies of our housing market. I have made a lifelong study of the trends, neighborhoods, and life of this city and I write about them on my blog at Living415.com. I’ve even named a neighborhood. The results of this enthusiasm are incredible: I have consistently been in the top 1% of San Francisco Realtors, and in 2017 I was in the top 10 agents in the city out of 4700 (for closed transactions; #21 in terms of closed dollar volume). This helps my clients because the more transactions I do, the more data points and relationships I can leverage to get their business done.

About Ron

Customer Service Philosophy I am 100% customer service driven while also providing a keen business sense garnered from my Economics degree from Berkeley and MBA from Stanford.

My strong suits: patience; no pressure approach; deep quantitative analysis skills; and always putting my clients first.

Vicki Valandra
Zephyr Real Estate
About Vicki

One reason I started working in real estate - and a reason I continue to do so today - is that I genuinely love helping guide people through what might otherwise be a daunting process of transacting real estate in San Francisco. My diverse background (Stanford Business School & many years of corporate and non-profit work experience) and over 13 years of real estate experience have helped land me in the top 1% of real estate agents within San Francisco. Perhaps the most important thing to know about me is that I view my clients as clients for life. I am not here to make a quick sale; rather, I'm here to build a relationship of trust while getting the job done. As a result, almost all of my sales are from repeat clients and referrals. Please see http://www.vickivalandra.com/testimonials/ to read some client testimonials. Please see http://www.vickivalandra.com/team/ to read more about my background. Why work with me?
