2017 Zephyr Real Estate Interview:

Congratulations to Richard Sarro! Richard is celebrating his 9-year anniversary with Zephyr Real Estate this spring and is based in our Pacific Heights office.

Richard Sarro grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, seeing first-hand the true design side of real estate through his father, Charles Grebmeier, a prominent interior designer with an incredible talent for creating architecture. These life events would further influence Richard’s future real estate career, when he purchased his first home in 1991. In 1998, Richard became an Alumni of St. Mary’s College, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in Business Management. From there, in 2004, he formed an LLC with two partners for real estate investments and development throughout various states. In 2008, he joined the most respected, top producing real estate company in San Francisco: Zephyr Real Estate, where he obtained his Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI) certification, Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) certification, and Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) certification.

Richard’s passion for real estate is clearly mirrored in his work and further reflected in his client’s reviews. He sells real estate throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, utilizing his mastered craft of negotiation, immeasurable experience and technologically savvy approaches to help both sellers and buyers of residential and limited commercial real estate. His philosophy is simple: to meet the uniquely individual wants and needs of each client. The result has established him as a respected Zephyr Real Estate Top Producer, and a truly diverse clientele with consistent repeat referral business.

We got to know Richard a little better when catching up with him about his Zephyr anniversary.

1. What do you love to do in your spare time? Do you have a favorite place to hang out in the Bay Area?
“I really don’t have much spare time, as I tend to devote much of it to my work, design and helping my friends and clients. On my breaks, I enjoy being with my family and taking mini trips to explore bay area destinations. I enjoy jumping and being silly on our trampoline, taking hikes and racing RC cars w/ my children. We enjoy going to the SF and Oakland Zoo’s, enjoying lunch at a Napa Valley winery, walking around Union Square, Sausalito, Walnut Creek, Burlingame Avenue & Monterey.”

2. Do you have a favorite architectural style or building in the Bay Area? In the world?
“Locally, Grace Cathedral is one of my favorites, as well as Victorian homes, which exude grace and elegance. However, I enjoy the many styles of Bay Area architecture, which is why I so much enjoy my profession. Having been to Italy, I absolutely loved the architectural and historic landmarks there, like Brunelleschi’s Dome (Duomo) in Florence Italy.”

3. Is there one neighborhood in the Bay Area that you think is truly a hidden gem and why?
“The City of Benicia. Once the capital of California, it holds some historical sites, beautiful waterfront properties, a charming marina, tempered weather and a small-town feel, but only minutes away from San Francisco and the Napa Valley. The city is a gem hidden in the Bay Area!”

4. What neighborhoods/cities have you lived in?
“I’ve lived in the Bay Area most of my life, w/ my father having lived in Nob Hill, across from Grace Cathedral and where my wife and I got married. The San Francisco Bay Area will always be our home.”
