Congratulations to Scott Yarmark! He is celebrating 4 years with Zephyr Real Estate this winter and is based in our Upper Market office.

Scott’s 20-year career in the airline industry sparked an eternal connection with the skill of customer service. A few years after settling in San Francisco, he bought his first home in 2002, igniting his interest in real estate. Immediately the sparks went flying and Scott fell into step with the strangely unique Bay Area real estate market.

Scott joined forces with Zephyr Real Estate in 2013, attracted by their unparalleled resources and authentic relationship with the city of San Francisco. Together with his business partner, Dan Bunker, Scott seamlessly guides his clients through buying and selling with a strong commitment to providing well-informed information to steer their decisions.

Having lived in Wisconsin, Arizona, Florida and New Jersey, Scott continues to be enchanted by the city of San Francisco. With an abundance of great restaurants, beautiful parks, unique neighborhoods and quirky characters, he is proud to call San Francisco his home.

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

1. What do you love to do in your spare time?

“In my spare time, I love finding unique, interesting experiences within the city limits. Did you know you can see dolphins in the Bay while hiking the Land’s End Trail? Or that you can practice free yoga at Grace Cathedral? Or learn how to swing dance in Golden Gate Park on Sundays? One of my absolute favorite places to spend time is the Presidio – so much greenery and nature right in our backyard.”

2. What neighborhood have you seen change most in San Francisco?

“I would have to say Mission Bay. When I first moved here it wasn’t even really a neighborhood – it was just rail yards and parking lots and warehouses – and now it’s luxury condos, hospitals, bike paths… I think it still has a way to go, but it’s the first time I’ve watched a whole new neighborhood sprout up.”

3. Do you have a favorite architectural style or building in SF? In the world?

“Minimalist, modern design has always attracted me. I love finding that perfect combination of simplicity, symmetry, openness and comfort. The Farnsworth House built by Mies van der Rohe being a prime example and one of my favorites. Here in San Francisco, Joseph Esherick designed a home at 2610 Scott Street that I absolutely love.”
