Congratulations to David Antman! He is celebrating his 12-year anniversary with Zephyr Real Estate this winter and is based in our West Portal office.

Born in New York City and educated at Cornell University, David has been a proud San Franciscan for more than 30 years, with half of that time as a realtor. His experience spans a wide range of market conditions, and his strategies for successfully meeting client goals are purposefully aligned. With more than 30 years of marketing and sales experience, including 12 years as a small business owner, he is able to offer his clients a keen eye for quality and value, as well being a negotiation maven.

David’s passion for the city is seamlessly expressed in his work as he is able to confidently stand behind the product he loves: San Francisco. His clientele over the years has been built upon referrals by his outstanding reputation of smoothly guiding his clients through one of their most intimate transactions.

When David is not developing life-long relationships with his clients, he is celebrating the diversity he has found in the Bay Area. During his time in San Francisco, he has gained a broad knowledge of the many different neighborhoods, micro-climates, fabulous restaurants, galleries, theaters, parks and schools that the city has to offer. With an innate appreciation for San Francisco, his career as a real estate agent has been a naturally enjoyable journey.

We got to know David 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?

“I have been lucky to live in Glen Park for the last 12 years and love it! A hidden San Francisco gem, tucked between the Mission, Bernal Heights and Noe Valley, the neighborhood has great restaurants and shops, and easy access to BART, MUNI and freeways, yet still retains a small-town feel. When I moved there, it was just starting to change, homes which had been neglected for many years began to get spruced up, and shops and restaurants followed. The best part of living there is the folks who live there—we have wonderful neighbors!”

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

“I spend lots of time exploring the city with my dog Haley—she loves to be out in the world and we often walk 3-4 miles per day. When I need to take a break, we escape up to our home in the heart of wine country in St. Helena. Up there, in addition to enjoying the warm weather, and visiting the wineries and world class restaurants, I have starting helping clients and friends find wine country retreats of their own.”
