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.

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

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $525K in Mill Valley, CA.

Jeff is unbelievable. We found ourselves extremely lucky to have him represented us as an agent. We started off having very little knowledge in the market of San Francisco and Marin county . But Jeff is patient, responsible, honest, and extremely knowledgeable in what he is doing. He guided us through the whole process and gave us the best advice in every scenario. In a competitive market like San Francisco and Marin, we started our search in low hopes while cash buyers are everywhere and everyone is trying to buy due to low interest rates. However, we ended our search in 7 weeks and closed in 21 days with the help of Jeff. We found our dream house in Marin! A beautiful HOME to grow our family that we would never thought we could get.

Jeff is not just an agent, he is a truthful team player with knowledge and experience in huge depth. His negotiation skills are excellent. If not because of him, we would never be able to win this battle! We had 4 other buyers to compete with and after rounds of negotiation, even though our offer was not the highest, but we were accepted as the best offer because of the lowest contingency. This is all Jeff's advices and strategies to help us get this place within our comfortable zone. His team is amazing too. He has connections with great loan officer and inspectors, which helps us tremendously.

Everyday we drive back home with our kids and pass through the beautiful evergreen trees surrounding our house, in our eyes we see this beautiful house of ours which Jeff helped us get, we are the luckiest persons on earth and we will be forever thankful to Jeff.

Sold a Condo home in 2013 for approximately $1.375M in South of Market, San Francisco, CA.

Jeff Hand was really wonderful to work with. He has extensive knowledge of the San Francisco real estate market and especially in and around the South of Market neighborhood. He really spent time listening to us and showed us places that fit our particular criteria. He worked very hard on our behalf; and at a very competitive time in San Francisco real estate market, his peer to peer relationships with other agents turned out to be a huge benefit to us finding a place. He found a property that was not on the market yet and he was able to negotiate a great deal on our behalf. The condo we bought turned out to be perfect for us. He has great connections in both the mortgage and title business which was a big plus to us in closing on our condo. All in all, Jeff is a good, honest, and hard working agent.  More Less
