San Francisco’s Pacific Heights, an elegant neighborhood marked by Victorian mansions with million dollar views, was first populated by the nouveau rich of the late 1800s. Residents flocked to the area loosely bordered by Van Ness and Presidio avenues and Pine and Vallejo streets when the construction of the new cable-car line made the area accessible. In an effort to one-up their Nob Hill neighbors, the Pac Heights elite built stately and extravagant homes. That legacy of luxury continues today, as Pacific Heights remains home to some of the City’s most exclusive real estate.

And so it’s very fitting that the corner of California and Van Ness, at one of San Francisco’s most important transit corridors featuring the landmark cable car turnaround for the California line, is where Coldwell Banker set down roots for its new flagship office, Coldwell Banker Previews International® Pacific Heights.


The new office space was custom built for the company and represents a striking balance between luxury and modern design amenities. It includes a combination of private offices and an open floor plan work setting, coupled with dramatic 20-foot-high ceilings. The architectural and design aesthetics are enhanced by a unique collection of art created by Bay Area artists.


The office was created not just as a workplace, but also to be a destination for buyers and sellers of luxury real estate.

“The fresh surroundings are simply state-of-the-art, with superb support systems and staff, large reception and conference rooms, high ceilings, wide hallways and adequate parking,” says Coldwell Banker Independent Sales Associate Dona Crowder. “It lifts my spirits to work in such an open and modern space, flooded with natural light, and agents working diligently all around me; it’s a real synergy.”


While Pacific Heights represents one of San Francisco’s more traditional areas, Coldwell Banker’s new office also takes design queues from their SOMA neighbors: an open, lofty and well-lit space, plush sofas, custom art and, of course, a central kitchen.


“The layout lends itself to sharing and more interaction,” says Coldwell Banker Independent Sales Associate Don DeFranco. “The new office has the same attributes as a tech start-up with cool finishes, comfortable common areas and fully-equipped conference rooms.”


The office aesthetics, coupled with the latest technology and advanced audio video equipment, creates an environment that is luxurious yet highly professional and functional.


The lobby wall is decorated with a large 1906 mural representing the company’s rich history that began in San Francisco, a nice juxtaposition to the room’s modern décor. Opposite the mural is a wall of windows overlooking the City.


The office will house more than 70 of the City’s leading Independent Sales Associates, including several luxury specialists who are ranked among the top agents worldwide. Working through the exclusive Coldwell Banker Previews International® marketing program, these agents represent some of the most prestigious addresses in the world, from stately castles to remote islands.
