Zephyr Real Estate Celebrates 40th Anniversary: Sales Then and Now


San Francisco, CA – November 26, 2018 – Zephyr Real Estate continues to celebrate its 40th year in business with a look at its beginnings, its present and its future. The first five sales to fall under the Zephyr umbrella 40 years ago are contrasted with the most recent five sales.


Back in 1978, Zephyr’s first five sales were:

630 27th Street (Noe Valley), $119,500
330 29th Street (Village Square), $78,500
4732-25 18th Street (Haight), $103,000
3838 22nd Street (Dolores Heights), $138,502
1724 Haight Street (Haight), $58,500


While most information about home size and amenities in 1978 is rather obscure, outdated or simply not available at this point, those sales prices are clearly in a category that is reminiscent of days gone by.


As of this writing, here are the five most recent sales:

691 Arimo Avenue (Oakland, Crocker Highlands), 2 bedroom, 2 bath Craftsman, $1,505,000
1152 Potrero Avenue, #B (Mission), 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath condo, $1,518,000
146 Granville Way (near West Portal Village,), 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath Mediterranean, $1,910,500
393 Los Cerros Drive (Greenbrae), 6 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, park-like setting, $2,450,000
175 Elm Avenue (Mill Valley), 4 bedroom, 3 bath, all new in 2015, $3,850,000


Is the Bay Area real estate market cooling or is it hotter than ever? The answer to that question is one for the pundits who have access to the proverbial crystal ball, whoever or wherever they may be. One thing is undeniable, those who purchased a home in 1978 and remain as that property’s owners are most likely living on a gold mine.


“San Francisco and the entire Bay Area are among the most competitive, fiercest markets in the country,” commented Randall Kostick, President and CEO of Zephyr Real Estate. “Zephyr owes its 40-year history of success to the amazing people with whom we have been so fortunate to work over the years.”
