Gabriel Rojas grew up in two disparate worlds, dividing his time between the pastoral countryside of New York’s Finger Lakes and the urban dynamo of New York City. An accomplished fashion photographer, his father encouraged his visual development early on, resulting in an extraordinary eye for detail which Gabriel has channeled into his love for real estate, architecture, photography, and design. His father’s photo studio was located in Manhattan’s notorious Meat Packing District, and was a pioneering real estate play long before it became the hip and trendy destination it is now.
While working in advertising sales in 2000, Gabriel’s interest in real estate took flight with his investment in what was to become the “Harlem renaissance.” Seeing the vast potential in Harlem, an area he knew was destined to succeed, he purchased a home in the gritty but up-and-coming neighborhood. His investment there would become a profitable rental property once he decided to make the move west to San Francisco.
For real estate buyers and investors, Gabriel brings the same opportunistic outlook to the San Francisco market. Beginning as a leasing agent in the historic Mission District, Gabriel quickly built his knowledge of San Francisco: its diverse neighborhoods, their unique character, and the kinds of people interested in becoming a part of them. Like New York, San Francisco provides people with an exciting opportunity to buy in a world-class city that’s experiencing incredible growth, and build future value. For sellers, Gabriel provides a comprehensive framework to prepare a home for market, and get it listed and under contract at the highest potential price in the current market – all in the shortest amount of time.
Persevering, ambitious, and an extraordinary listener, Gabriel stakes his success and reputation on his uncompromising attention to detail and his pioneering spirit.
