Congratulations to Christopher Jurach! He is celebrating his 1-year anniversary with Zephyr Real Estate this winter and is based in our Noe Valley office.

Chris first became involved in San Francisco real estate in 1996 when managing an investment property and consulting on construction projects to restore a Victorian Row House building. Since this initial introduction to the Bay Area real estate market, he has been a dedicated advocate for each of his clients. He brings a passion for the history, architecture, and character of the homes built in San Francisco to each of his client relationships. He focuses on the goal to develop a strategy that puts the needs of his clients first, while providing them with the tools to make clear decisions about their most important investment.

Chris has been able to extend a battery of contacts inside the industry to his clients, along with great service providers. Consistently striving to improve himself, he regularly attends networking sessions and trainings for real estate law, risk management, and San Francisco rent control, allowing his clients to remain informed of market trends and conditions.

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

1. What neighborhood/city do you live in & why? How long have you lived there and what do you love best about it?

“My wife and I live in the Haight Ashbury with our newborn baby, Julia – in a charming Edwardian with a great view. We’ve been there for seven years, and love the central location. With easy access to Golden Gate Park, we are as close to Ocean beach as we are to downtown. Plus, we live right on the fog line. A quick hike up to Tank Hill affords us a refreshing view of the whole Bay Area, and it’s a colorful neighborhood with many trees.”

2.What do you love to do in your spare time? Do you have a favorite place to hang out?

“On the sunny days, we love to visit Ocean beach or hike ‘Hawk Hill’ in the Marin Headlands.

We love to cook, and share that with friends – hosting a BBQ in the park with live music is a perfect day for us.”

3. In what neighborhood have you seen the most change in San Francisco?

“The Central Waterfront / Dogpatch has seen a complete revival – and has a whole new skyline and landscape. This walkable neighborhood has numerous restaurants and bars, plus transportation (like the T-Line & the Cal Train) that make the area inviting to live and work in.”
