If you’re looking for one of San Francisco’s top apartment brokers, your search will inevitably lead you to Dan McGue. This real estate powerhouse has a reputation that precedes him and an iconic record to match. He has sold over $2.3 billion in San Francisco multi-family, commercial and land, including 13,300 apartment and commercial units in buildings totaling more than 9.7 million square feet.
“What I really enjoy about commercial real estate is negotiating and dealing with my clients,” reveals the Bay Area native and 30-year real estate veteran. “For me, it’s really about the people and the transactions.”
Both agents and clients who have worked with Dan describe him as dedicated and detailed when it comes to negotiating. “My attention to detail keeps my clients out of trouble,” he says. He recounts selling every property in the Guenter
Kaussen Estate in the late 1980s —— the largest probate sale in the history of California at the time: “Due to poor management and maintenance, the sale was expected to result in a loss, but we successfully worked through the physical, legal and financial problems, resulting in a significant profit to the estate.”
Dan’s laser focus on service is one reason for his success. The four members of his team have also adopted his high standards, allowing him to expand his menu of client services. “I try to teach my staff about the concept of complete service,” he says. “I treat agents on the other side of the transaction with the same respect as clients.”
Perhaps that’s why Dan is at the top of his game in one of the most competitive commercial real estate markets in America. At the end of the day, he knows what really matters. People.
