Congratulations to Lorraine Meier. She will be celebrating 7 Years at Zephyr Real Estate and is based at our Pacific Heights Office. Get to know her better as we go behind the scenes to learn more about her favorite spots and life as a Realtor.

1. What is the most rewarding part of your job?

It’s satisfying to help my clients find the perfect home with the best terms possible or sell their property at top dollar. It’s an exciting time for both buyers and sellers and I take pride in being able to help them manage their way through the process with excellent client services.

2. Favorite sport and why?

I’ve been an avid Giants fan since Candlestick days. I find the slow pace of the game relaxing and I go to as many games as I can. It’s a place where strangers become friends. It’s like time stands still and you can forget about the outside world for a while. The game requires an incredible amount of strategy, and it has some arcane rules that I don’t fully understand, but you can take me out to the ballgame any day.

3. Favorite pass-time when you’re not hard at work with real estate?

Spending time with my grand kids, reading, hanging out at the beach and baseball.

4. If you could live in any SF neighborhood, which would it be and why?

San Francisco is an amazing city and I think I would be happy living just about anywhere here. I love the beach, so I live a few blocks away from Ocean Beach in the Outer Sunset. It’s a beach community that has it’s own pace; A place where you know your all of your neighbors and the local merchants by name. There is no sound in the world better than the lapping of the waves on the beach, and no smell better than the salty air. Who says the sun never shines here? The truth is there are more sunny days than foggy.

5. Best advice for clients (buyers and sellers alike) this year?

Real estate is a great investment. Buy what you can afford, as soon as you can afford it. You think prices and rents are high now, but I promise you, they will look cheap 10 years from now!
