Experience, Excellence and Integrity

Top 1% Agents San Francisco and Nationally since 1990

#1 Top Producer for more than 20 years

As a leading real estate agent in San Francisco, with more than twenty years experience in working with buyers and sellers, I am able to provide the level of expertise necessary for all types of residential real estate transactions. I believe that my success is built upon a keen understanding of the San Francisco real estate market and on my hard work, professionalism and dedication to my clients.

As a team, my business partner Mike Shaw and I, unlike many other successful real estate agents, do not delegate to others but are personally involved in every facet of each transaction to ensure that the transaction goes as smoothly as possible and thus minimize the myriads of possible headaches in the transaction.

As real estate professionals we have worked with buyers, whether first time or investors, and sellers ranging from homeowners to developers and institutions such as banks in sales of all types of residential properties throughout San Francisco.

Our expert market knowledge and strong marketing, negotiating and people skills have enabled us to achieve an unusually high level of customer satisfaction, resulting in repeat and referral business from satisfied clients accounting for more than 90% of our business.

What sellers say…

You should be commended for your professionalism, consistent quality work, thoroughness and attention to detail. Above all you should be commended for your honesty and integrity, not necessarily a common trait in your business… you keep an eye out for the best interest of your client. RAH

Even though we signed up to sell our home in the toughest economic environment San Francisco has ever seen, you were able to complete the sale quickly and at a price very close to the original asking price… this was due to your hard work and extensive knowledge of the real estate market in San Francisco. Thank you for making our experience very easy and simple, when it easily could have been challenging and stressful. MN&MP

You were a voice of reason and thoughtfulness. I am confident your suggestions and marketing significantly increased the price we received, as well as reduced the time our house was on the market. Your dedication to customer service is why we had such a successful transaction. TH/LH

Bernie had our interests as a first priority, guiding us through the process while maintaining warmth and professionalism. It was not all about making the sale. KL

I have sold several homes in my lifetime but I have never received the attention you gave me in you handling every detail and keeping me completely up to date. ES

Your straightforward approach and sensitivity to our concerns was greatly appreciated. You did exactly as you promised, and more. What a contrast between your professionalism and the shenanigans of our previous real estate experiences. DB/SB

My decision to choose Bernie in the sale of a 5-unit apartment building was helped by the fact that he was referred to me by a contracting professional who claimed to know “all” the agents in San Francisco, and that Bernie was one of the few he would recommend… Some may hesitate to list with a “top producer” because they think the agent may be too busy with multiple deals. I never had that feeling with Bernie. He was on top of everything. JD

During the entire process he kept me updated and informed. I have dealt with four different realtors in the past and, without question, Bernie is head and shoulders above them all. He is an exceptional, kind and caring individual. He is simply the best! CC/AC

Thank you for your unswerving professionalism. I know I wasn’t the easiest client you have had, but I can assure you that you are the best real estate representative I have seen: getting things done, accepting my arbitrary decisions without telling me I’m crazy, constant attention and focus on showing the property. JSM

I most appreciated your ability to always keep me informed with explanations that were always understandable and pertinent. EOC

I’ve been a real estate appraiser for eleven years and have worked with many different realtors. I can see why you have been the top producer in your office for so many years. Thank you for making the sale of our home an easy and successful experience. The property was well advertised and marketed and your negotiation skills resulted in a sales price that was beyond our expectation. EJS

Your attention to details was truly exemplary. Complimenting your mastery of technical matters was your gentlemanly demeanor. JL

What buyers say…

Bernie, with his calm and rational manner, made everything seem manageable—even understandable! He asked the right questions, reassured us with timely and important information and spent the time needed for us to feel good about our decision. I would recommend Bernie to a first or fiftieth time buyer. His love of real estate definitely shows! SP

It was reassuring to have you available (seven days a week!) to answer our questions and to guide us when we didn’t know what to ask. With your kind, strong, and (when needed) tough manner, you helped us successfully through several difficult negotiations and were there for us after closing. When unforeseeable difficulties arose, you calmed our nerves and handled the situations efficiently. PF/MK

You are one of the best realtors with whom we have worked. We were pleased with your ability to understand our needs and show us homes that matched our expectations and budget. Your understanding of the San Francisco market really gave us a competitive edge in getting the most house for our money. RA/DE

I don't think I would have been as successful as I was during the process of buying a home in San Francisco without Bernie Katzmann. Buying in SF is complicated - there's no getting around it. Demand is usually high and while quality properties are out there they often seem just out of reach. Bernie's focused on doing everything he can to put you in the best possible position when the time comes to make your offer. And that's what it really comes down to. Bernie is knowledgeable in all the right areas, he's thinking ahead and providing great advice, he's extremely professional, and he's available and responsive throughout the process. I recommend him highly. You can't go wrong with Bernie! - JCK
