Mission: Zephyr is the local specialist who knows how to traverse this highly competitive market — and reap its rewards. Smart, informed, tenacious and up-to-date on current market data, Zephyr agents are a lot like the clients they serve. Appealing to savvy urban investors ...
Ignited by San Francisco’s entrepreneurial spirit, Zephyr Real Estate opened in 1978 and built upon a foundation of providing exceptional care to every client. By deflecting the trends of buy-outs by larger national real estate companies over the years, Zephyr Real Estate has become stronger as we preserve our mission of commitment to the highest level of integrity, personal attention, professionalism and dedicated service.
Our 300+ exceptional agents who generate over $2.3 billion in annual sales thrive out of our six San Francisco offices, our central Marin office and two affiliate brokerages in Sonoma. Through our enduring efforts, we have fostered a strong brand to become the number one property seller in San Francisco (handling 1 in 8 transactions) and the fastest growing company in Marin County.
Zephyr Real Estate has cultivated itself as a destination company for a wide cross-section of agents and staff, with various types of life experiences and skills that strengthen our collaborative environment. Our Top Producers are some of the very best REALTORS® in the country, while our newer agents receive the highest level of training and support available in the industry. By striving to increase the quality of life for our staff and creating an atmosphere that our agents can flourish in, we boast an unparalleled retention rate. And we are always looking to recruit the best talent available, whether they are seeking an exceptional training program to launch their career, restructure their business for increased success or simply needing to achieve better live/work balance.
Clients working with Zephyr Real Estate can expect unprecedented support, innovative processes, a hands-on approach, and access to our attentive, local and knowledgeable agents who are empowered by proprietary market intelligence, unmatched resources and expansive networking.
Zephyr Affiliate Brokerages
Zephyr Real Estate has licensing agreements in place with two brokerages in Sonoma County, in Graton and Guerneville. Although our affiliates are independently owned and operated, our close relationship with them opens up new opportunities to better serve our clients with wider representation in the Bay Area. Whether seeking a Wine Country weekend home or a pied-à-terre in the City, Zephyr has you covered all around the Bay.
I worked at Zephyr Real Estate full-time (More than a year)
Lots of people, high energy, great projects to work on, team support, open door policy
Certain Realtors are bossy and overload you with projects not understanding that you have to help everyone as equally as possible. You have to wok part hours on weekends.
Advice to Management
Stop micro managing and let the employees breath a bit.
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Zephyr Real Estate (San Francisco, CA) in January 2015.
Morning interview on a Monday. The front desk worker greeted me, and offered a tea or water. Interview for about a half hour with the office manager. She was friendly, and personable. It seemed like they had a great team and atmosphere.
