With over 30 years of real estate experience, Dale + Alla are the dynamic duo of San Francisco real estate. A top-producing team with training as an attorney and an MBA, they have sold over $500MM and bring an entrepreneurial mindset to every transaction; from strategically marketing a $16MM estate to writing the winning offer on a classic Edwardian. Consistently ranked in the Top 1% of SF Realtors, Top 100 Team in the Bay Area and partners of a national network of other high profile, like-minded agents, their ultimate laser-focused goal is always to ensure their clients’ success.
Dale + Alla take the time to understand clients’ needs, have a hands-on approach, drive effective marketing strategies, offer persistency and strong negotiating skills, provide access to off-market channels and deliver outstanding problem solving skills – the secret sauce that has led to repeat clients and referrals. Above all, they have insider knowledge and have cultivated vast connections with vendors and brokers in the SF real estate community to help their clients gain every possible advantage.
The collective expertise between Dale + Alla allow them to successfully maximize the price on all of their listings, as well as help their buyers evaluate the merits and challenges of both prepared and unprepared homes. In the fleeting time when Dale + Alla are not involved with real estate transactions or helping clients, they enjoy spending time with their college-aged girls. Avid travelers and foodies, they are the ultimate resources for food and culture both near and far. Dale + Alla also believe that it is not only important to be leaders in their industry, but also selfless leaders in their community and as such, dedicate much of their free time directing and serving at several non-profit boards.
