San Francisco Luxury Boutique Firm Consistently Outsells Larger Rivals
Pacific Heights Still Commands Top Prices for Single-Family Homes
SAN FRANCISCO (March 1, 2017) – GPK Luxury Real Estate, San Francisco’s top-selling, luxury boutique residential real estate firm (www.gpk-sf.com), proudly announced that it has closed the two most expensive single-family home sales recording in San Francisco in 2016. Both homes are located in the city’s traditionally affluent Pacific Heights neighborhood: 2250 Vallejo Street sold for $21,800,000 on October 14 and 2476 Broadway Street sold for $18,100,000 on December 2. The firm has consistently outperformed larger competitors and has been among the top brokerage firms in San Francisco for decades.
“We are very proud to have coordinated the sale of the two most prestigious homes in San Francisco in 2016, especially as a small, independent firm competing with much larger, national names,” said Stephen Patton, GPK Luxury Real Estate founding partner. “These sales, and our consistent success over the years, are a direct result of the highly personalized interactions we establish with our clients.”
GPK Luxury Real Estate is a boutique San Francisco-based firm that represents clients seeking to buy and sell luxury condominiums, cooperatives, and single-family homes in the city’s premium neighborhoods. The firm was established in 1978 by Stephen Gomez and Stephen Patton, with Bryant Kowalczyk joining as a third partner in 2012. The only real estate firm in the Nob Hill neighborhood of San Francisco since the company’s inception, GPK offers clients the highest standards of professionalism, market knowledge and service.
“Our success is directly attributable to our specialization in a narrow luxury niche,” noted founding partner Stephen Gomez, “that allows us to provide ‘inside’ market insight that discerning buyers appreciate, and which are not available through larger firms or real estate websites.”
“The strong connections we have made within this community and the knowledge of the area that we have accumulated enables us to provide our clients with a unique, behind-the-curtain experience,” said Gomez. “Many of the properties we represent are bought and sold off market and never appear on a listing. We’re so ingrained in this community, we could tell you the last three owners of almost every property on the north side of the city.”
Kowalczyk’s addition to the team in 2012 expanded the firm’s area of expertise to include the rapidly growing, highly desirable, and increasingly affluent South of Market neighborhoods. With his stellar track record of selling properties in the newer South Beach and SoMa neighborhoods and comprehensive knowledge of that area of the city, Kowalczyk expanded GPK Luxury Real Estate’s area of expertise to encompass both the traditional northern tier neighborhoods and the newer south of Market areas. He has also quickly developed expertise in the Pacific Heights area and represented the buyer in the 2250 Vallejo transaction, the most expensive home sale in the city in 2016.
Experts in the intricacies of delicate, high-end property sales and purchases, GPK has worked with a wide range of affluent clients and closed some of the most complex residential transactions recorded in San Francisco. The company represents more buyers and sellers of luxury condominiums and cooperative apartments than any other individual or sales team in San Francisco. Top executives from a wide range of well-established firms, such as McKesson, URS Corporation, First Republic Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, as well as some of the Bay Area’s most prominent tech companies, including Facebook, Twitter, Airbnb, LinkedIn, Google and many more, hire GPK Luxury Real Estate to buy and sell their residential properties.
While GPK Luxury Real Estate uses the latest technology through its online network, GPK Global, and engages potential buyers from all over the world, the partners still rely primarily on personal experience and personalized, first-hand market knowledge.
“That has always been the basis of our success,” said Gomez. “It’s simply second nature for us to put the client first, and it sets the stage for the superior service that is the GPK hallmark.”
