JEFF HANDwerger loves real estate, fine architecture, and empowering his clients with his broad based knowledge and ability to navigate and negotiate the San Francisco and Marin County real estate markets.

Jeff's inspiration to enter the world of real estate was born when he read Ayn Rand's The Fountainhead in 1985. While the hero of the novel loved to design and build homes as an architect. Jeff loves to coordinate real estate deals.

In addition to overseeing hundreds or real estate transactions as an agent / broker, Jeff has also consulted and appraised hundreds of millions of dollars in real property, he has overseen development and construction projects ranging from $20,000 renovations to $40,000,000 condominium development projects. He holds a Master in Science in Real Estate Development and Investment from New York University.

Jeff re-joined Zephyr Real Estate in early 2010 after a stint as a senior Marketing Consultant at Sotheby's International Realty and several years of owning his own real estate company. He was the number 1 or number 2 Company Top Producing agent at Zephyr from 1995 through 1999.

He takes great pride in representing his client's best interests through excellent negotiation, and market analysis skills. He has helped buyers and sellers with many off market or not yet on the market opportunities. He specializes in helping homeownes that owe more than their home is worth and helps advise as to whether a loan modification, a short sale or other venues are the best course of action.

Jeff excels as an agent because of his greatest strength: educating his clients. He scours the market for favorable financing options, and looks for opportunities to add value to his clients. Jeff believes in social responsibility and in the value of homeownership. He has acted as the exclusive real estate agent for Habitat for Humanity San Francisco on a pro-bono basis since 1995. He has also actively supported and been a financial contributor to Rebuilding Together, the San Francisco Aids Project and the Jewish Community Federation.

Bought a home in 2014.

Jeff did an amazing job for us in a difficult market. My wife and I had a very limited area that we wanted to live in and Jeff was super on top of what was available that fit our criteria. When we found a place the seller was very difficult to negotiate with; the property had some obvious issues that the seller didn't want to take into account. Jeff negotiated exceptionally well and saved us a lot of money. He has extensive knowledge of the industry having been a realtor for a long time and has extensive knowledge of the real estate itself having developed a variety of properties small and large. I would give him 6 stars if that were possible.  More Less

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $900K in Outer Sunset, San Francisco, CA.

Jeff is an excellent realtor. He is very experienced in all aspects of real estate, and I felt that I was consulting a really solid knowledgeable person when different issues came up around the area, the property type, the quality of the house, discussing renovations, negotiating with the seller, etc. I especially appreciated this given the current market, where things are much different than they have been in the past, and he adjusted to the climate easily and was able to guide us.

Jeff is also a man of integrity. I felt that Jeff was very pure hearted and straightforward throughout the process, keeping our best interests in mind as he guided us.

Lastly, Jeff was always super available to us via phone and email. It was very convenient to work with him. I highly recommend Jeff as your realtor with no reservation.

Showed home in 2013 in Downtown, San Francisco, CA 94109.

Jeff Hand is a top notch real estate agent with Zephyr in San Francisco. He represents buyers and sellers throughout the Bay Area and has sophisticated knowledge of the industry. If Jeff is not sure of something, he will let you know and he will find out. Jeff Hand is a great resource and a skilled negotiator. You can also trust him to represent your interests, which goes a long way. I've worked with Jeff over the last couple years and he's always been extremely responsive, informative, patient, and professional. I recommend him without hesitation.  More Less
