LEAP is a real estate brokerage that handles both commercial and real estate transactions in SF and in cities within a one hour radius from SF.
This unique integrated approach allows our clients to remain with their broker for all their real estate transaction needs whether commercial or residential.
Further, this unique integrated approach gives us thorough industry knowledge that is possible only when you transact across real estate categories such as homes, condos, retail, office space, industrial buildings and geographies as opposed to a single category in a single city.
LEAP adds to its thorough industry knowledge, seasoned transaction expertise and an extensive network of relationships to deliver a superior, senior level of service for clients who value independent judgment, experience, candor and insight.
“LEAP was born out of the frustration I experienced when buying and selling properties for myself and on behalf of investors. In LEAP, I’ve surrounded myself with professionals whose character, knowledge and skills ensure that you have an exceptional, productive real estate experience.”
