Centrally located near San Francisco’s cultural center, The Performing Arts District (PAD), Symphony Towers is only a short distance from the SF Symphony, Ballet, and Opera. There is easy access to public transportation, freeways, and tech shuttles, and one of the most popular and best local coffee makers, Philz, is right by your front door!

One-car parking is an added convenience, but public transport is a cinch. The building includes a locked bicycle storage room and a controlled-access garage with City CarShare if you need use of a second car. Enjoy panoramic views of the city from the gracious roof deck where you can sunbathe, entertain with the help of the gas barbecue, or sip a beverage and watch the sunset.

Several of the City’s major cultural and governmental buildings are located in the Van Ness/Civic Center neighborhood along with the Civic Center Plaza and United Nations Plaza. The United Nations Charter was signed in the Herbst Theatre in 1945, and in 1987 it was declared a national historic landmark. Other buildings of note include City Hall, the Supreme Court of California, the War Memorial Opera House, Davies Symphony Hall, and the Art Institute of California. The area is brimming with history. It is the epicenter for culture and the arts. Take cooking classes at The San Francisco Cooking School, enjoy a famous French soul food brunch at Brenda’s, take in a performance at Great American Music Hall or the Opera House, or watch a movie, all within a few blocks of your home.

The “Boom” is coming! Are you ready?

As we reach the final stretch to this event, a quick reminder of who is speaking and why it is so important for anyone involved in the real estate business in or around the Bay Area to be there. We look forward to seeing you on Friday for this incredible panel discussion and a fun and celebratory reception at the SF Jazz Center!

The “Building Boom” series came about 2 years ago when the SFAR’s Member Education committee concluded that it was imperative that the real estate community in San Francisco and the Bay Area stayed current on what was being built, where it was being built, who the players where and how it effected us as real estate professionals as well as our clients. We asked other key organizations in our community like The Women’s Council of RealtorsCREAAAREAA, and YPN for help in creating the areas’ best event for our members and the Building Boom was born.

This session will mark our 3rd semi-annual event and it’s the greatest one yet. We have some of the areas greatest experts in real estate sales, development, city planning, economics, and the real estate press. And, for the first time, we are offering seats to those who are non-members of SFAR (San Francisco Association of Realtors) and our affiliate associations.

The event will be followed by a reception to celebrate with friends, make new connections, and discuss your ideas and thoughts about real estate in our great city.

We are looking forward to seeing you at this incredible event! Mark your calendar and Register Here to book tickets today.

Million Dollar Listing San Francisco Premiere at Local Edition!

Well, what can I say about it? It was cool? It was fun? No, it was a stellar celebration for the premiere of Million Dollar Listing last week at Local Edition in San Francisco. Hosted by Climb Real Estate Group and Sindeo, we had a packed house celebrating my friend and fellow-Climber, Justin Fichelson.

Justin was absolutely great on the show and has already received many accolades and articles supporting this. The only native of San Francisco in the show, Justin has an incredible knowledge of the city and has a massive network to boot. His philanthropic work was also part of the celebration raising money for The Exploratorium on the Embarcadero. In all, $18,000 was raised for a program aimed to help high school students work there providing support and doing tours to visitors of this most amazing San Francisco attraction.

On a personal note, I am happy to announce that I appeared on the show with Justin around the half-way mark. I’m on for about 10 seconds and I think I say about two words but, hey, it’s a start! Word has it that I’ll be on episode 3 as well. Stay tuned!

I want to send a HUGE thank you to the entire production team for including me on the very first show. You are true professionals and an amazingly talented team. I look forward to working with you more on Season 2!

Justin, a job well done and congratulations again on your spot on the show! I’m wishing you great success in the SF real estate world and as a member of the Climb family!

My gorgeous date, Amy, and me arriving at the premiere last week.
