Congratulations to Wendy Watkins! She is celebrating 8 years with Zephyr Real Estate this winter and is based in our Potrero Hill office.
Working in a city defined by culture and diversity, Wendy prides herself on her ability to pair a person, couple or family with the property and the neighborhood that will best suit their needs. She keeps up-to-date on the latest technology and methodology while never losing her personal touch.
Wendy has experience working with a wide spectrum of clients, from first time home buyers to savvy sellers. Her years at Stanford University and experience as an All-American Water Polo player have helped to shape her strong work ethic and fuel her competitive edge when negotiating the best deal possible for her clients.
A natural fit for San Francisco herself, Wendy has spent the last ten years accumulating knowledge about the city and the intricacies of real estate. She is devoted to each client and maintains a high-touch connection throughout the buying and selling process. Her goal remains to build lifelong relationships with her clients. She genuinely enjoys getting to know the story behind each individual client, which in turn helps her to better provide them with the specific knowledge and customized support to make decisions during the buying or selling process.
We got to know Wendy a little better when catching up with her about her 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 living in San Francisco for 13 years now and absolutely love this city. During this time I’ve lived in Nob Hill, Hayes Valley, Duboce Triangle, and for the past 4 years, Potrero Hill. Potrero Hill has my heart. Not only do we have some of the best weather and views, there is such a warmth to the neighbors I have met and feel very at home here. And of course there are the fabulous restaurants and cafes of 18th Street and Dogpatch.”
2. What do you love to do in your spare time? Do you have a favorite place to hang out?
“I have been a swimmer and athlete my whole life so I love frequenting the pool at the UCSF Mission Bay for rooftop swims and views of the city. I also have a lot of friends who are artists and musicians and enjoy the colorful nightlife that San Francisco offers.”
3. What neighborhood have you seen change most in San Francisco?
“There has been a lot of change in the city in the past few years and no neighborhood can escape this, but where I’ve seen the most change is Mission Bay and Dogpatch. Though it still has an industrial feel, the amount of new construction, hospitals, and soon the Warriors stadium, these neighborhoods are no longer an afterthought to buyers in search of a hip new area to call home.”
