San Francisco is a “no risk, no reward” kind of town — the kind of place that welcomes investors and fortune seekers who enthusiastically embrace the unknown with careful analysis. In real estate, no one understands the art of the calculated risk better than Shaban Shakoori.
“I want my clients to feel protected when we’re looking at properties,” says the 17-year real estate veteran. “I tell them if it’s a good property to buy and how to improve it in order to raise the value of it.”
He dispatches this advice because he knows firsthand what it takes to succeed in San Francisco real estate. He is part broker, part corporate lawyer, part luxury home developer and part landlord, giving his clients a unique edge in one of the most competitive residential housing markets on the planet. He ranks among the city’s top residential real estate agents and has been one of the top-producing agents in the Pacific Heights branch of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage — Northern California’s most productive real estate office since 2005. He is also a pioneer, as one of San Francisco’s first tenancy-in-common developers. A passionate preservationist, he has rehabilitated over 10 historic homes and Victorians throughout the city — including his personal home, a Victorian mansion designed by the Reid Brothers who built the original Cliff House and Hotel del Coronado. This experience, combined with his close association with San Francisco-founded Coldwell Banker®, has further rooted Shaban to a city he has loved and lived in since the 1970s.
“Being associated with a historic brand gives me a deep connection to our unique market,” he says.
