San Francisco, CA, May 22, 2017 – Zephyr Real Estate, San Francisco’s largest independent real estate firm, is widening its horizon once again. This time Zephyr is moving southward to Burlingame in San Mateo County. With an increasing number of clients in that area, the new business center in Burlingame is optimally located to best serve them and Zephyr’s agents who specialize in that segment of the Bay Area.

 

San Mateo County is situated between San Francisco to the north and Silicon Valley to the south. From Daly City to Año Nuevo State Park, San Mateo County is home to several villages, tony suburbs, towns and major cities with a variety of lifestyles, architecture and cultures. Tech companies Google, Facebook and Oracle, and biotech giant Genentech are located here.

 

Burlingame, the home of Zephyr’s new business center, is also known as the City of Trees and is a progressive “think green” city. In an effort to reduce carbon emissions, water consumption and energy usage, Burlingame has created everything from bicycle transportation plans to major recycling events. The Burlingame Trolley provides free local shopping transportation, and BART, Cal-Train and buses are great methods of transport to neighboring employment centers. The Burlingame location is in the Broadway business district, which is very walkable, has ample parking and hosts several locally owned restaurants, coffee shops and boutiques.

 

“Zephyr will be one of the top brokerage choices for sellers and buyers here as a result of their excellent reputation, being tech driven, and researching the latest marketing options,” stated Cheryl Bower, a Zephyr agent who is based out of both the West Portal and Burlingame locations to best serve her clients in San Francisco and the Peninsula. “Zephyr focuses on delivering superior support and a positive experience to agents and their clients.”
Zephyr’s new Burlingame location offers added convenience to its growing client base in communities such as San Mateo, Redwood City, Brisbane, San Bruno and Daly City as well as the highly-desirable coastal locales like Pacifica and Half Moon Bay. Zephyr agents were responsible for nearly $230 million in sales volume on the Peninsula over the past two years, prior to Zephyr even having a physical office space.

 

“Our clients have been steadily expanding into the Peninsula, and many of our agents live here and are experts in these communities,” commented Kevin Koerner. “The decision to open an office in Burlingame was a logical response to this growth.”

 

Koerner, who managers Zephyr’s West Portal office, will also manage the new business center, located at 1126 Broadway, Suite 8, Burlingame. He has been in the real estate business for over 15 years and is active in several real estate associations, including San Francisco, San Mateo and Silicon Valley. For more information about the new office, he may be reached at 415.426.3293 or [email protected].

 

Just two short years ago, Zephyr opened a brand new office in Marin County to accommodate the rapidly growing base of clients and agents who lived and worked north of San Francisco. That office, located in Greenbrae, is one of Marin County’s fastest-growing offices.
